Review

Beautifully illustrated, Gardening Like A Ninja shows aspiring gardeners how to have edible plants which are useful for everyday cooking, also create a sustainable and beautiful landscape that's easy to maintain. Anyone can save both time and money using the visually appealing and edible designs and harvest the fruits from your delicious paradise... Exceptionally well written, organized and presented, Gardening Like A Ninja is very highly recommended for both community and academic library Gardening instructional reference collections. --Midwest Book Review

One of the many things that stood out in Gardening Like a Ninja were the stunning photos and illustrations. These landscapes aren't just delicious, they re decorative too. By following Angela's advice you'll end up with a garden that's pleasing to the eye and the palette. Each garden design has a blend of color, texture, fragrance, and even varying heights to provide a unique aesthetic, that's expertly planned. This book will help you grow your own gardening skills while you transform your landscape. The lists of edibles Angela covers is extensive, covering vines, trees, ornamentals, and shrubs. There's something for everyone, even the experienced gardner can learn how to sneak some of these edibles into a front yard. --Elizabeth Bruno - Mamavation

Gardening Like a Ninja was a fun and very informative read and I'd recommend it to anyone who has a love of gardening even if you're not interested in adding edibles to your landscape. There's a lot of helpful hints to keep your plants healthy and happy, regardless of use. I particularly enjoyed the second chapter where there are numerous before and after photos of landscapes, with the author adding her how/why for various plants, styles, etc. It gave me a lot of ideas of what to do with my own yard. In addition to the illustrations, there are a LOT of photographs that really add to the quality of the book and make for a great read. This is one gardening book that you'll be referring to again and again. --Feathered Quill Book Review

I rent, and do not have the luxury of planting a full-fledged garden - that's what drew me to this book. I love that I can landscape and garden at the same time in the spaces I do have afforded to me. The plans in this book are practical and beautiful, and incredibly easy to follow. Most gardening books are not written for me, with their immense garden designs and overcomplicated plans, but Gardening Like a Ninja is definitely my speed!

A couple of things that really stood out to me about the book are:
1. The pages are eye-appealing in a simplistic way and useful in a "real" way. There are many sidebars with quick tips like "10 Edibles That Make Good Hanging Basket Plants" and "Edible Plants with Fall Interest". There are quotes and simple plans, and photos of REAL houses and how they were transformed by edible landscaping. This made the book much more user-friendly and viable for someone like me.

2. I didn't feel like the author was talking over my head. I'm not a gardener. I like pretty things and I love the notion of growing my own food, but gardening is not my forte. Angela England doesn't write as if she's a know-it-all master gardener. She writes as if she really wants you to see how easy this can be. You get to choose how simple or complicated YOU make it. She never says you must do such and such or your garden will be an utter failure. It really is a "do what you can" approach - and that takes tremendous pressure off of me and makes me more willing to actually implement her ideas!

Gardening Like A Ninja is chock-full of terrific information on plants useful for creating edible landscapes, from the more expected (fruit trees) to the quite surprising (hostas?!) as well as everything in between (berry bushes, herbs, hops, vining beans and fruits and so much more). England covers an immense amount of useful info on individual plants, as well as design tips for making your edible yard look nice, which is the whole point of the Ninja method: sneak edibles in everywhere possible to make any landscape more productive. Very readable and visually appealing, the wealth of ideas in this book will inspire readers to add more edible plants wherever they can. A great addition to any gardener's library!

The first book I read by Angela, Backyard Farming on an Acre (More or Less) Backyard Farming on an Acre (More or Less) (Living Free Guides) was amazing content but a few things lacked and this book fixed those issues.

I love <3 that it's full color!! It's easier to see the layers of the garden layout with the different shades of green for the leaves. I love all of the drawings that show an aerial view of the gardening plans. I can see how I can remove a few plants to make it work in the size area that I have to work with.

There are so many great ideas and suggestions that I've come across and I haven't even read the book word-for-word yet. I never thought of using containers near the front door with edible plant. I always thought of them more as a fancy mini shrub that we kept trimmed nice. After seeing the different arrangements of containers I have a few ideas for working it onto our small front porch to make it colorful but useful at the same time.

I am really looking forward to warmer weather this year - coming from a lover of snow and cold. A huge reason is because I am excited to put these tips and tricks into action and make our boring, plane Jane house look like a home that is loved!

This book is jam-packed with so much information - everything you need to know about landscaping and gardening. I love it!!! Oh, and the pictures are amazing!! Angela England guides you through each section of your lawn detailing how to create a beautiful landscape yet still being edible and productive. She thoroughly explains about each plant and the best ways to cultivate it and make it thrive. Diagrams are also included. They teach you step-by step of how to design your yard according to the layout of her house and its surroundings. Making beautiful pathways are discussed as well. I love the way how Angela walks you through the how-to’s of creating fruit and herb corners in the back of your yard to designing three-season islands in the center. There is even a section about the potential pests and diseases. Oh – and I really like the growing guide at the back. There is no need for purchasing additional books since this one is so in-depth and all-inclusive. I enjoyed reading it and can’t wait to try it out on our backyard!!

This book will have you immediately thinking of the areas of your yard where you can plant edibles - no matter how small! My view of edibles was greatly expanded - this is WAY more than just how to squeeze a tomato in here or a couple lettuces there. It is full of plans, illustrations, and photos showing how herbs, edible shrubs, fruit trees and more can be a part of a beautiful garden design. Whether you're a beginner (great info on how to get started) or a seasoned gardener (inspiration for new garden plans) there's something for you in this excellent book. I just wish there were even more plans, I was that inspired!
