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

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!
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!
