Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

There's no doubt about it: Stewart ( Weddings ), from all appearances, has lushly productive gardens. With the help of Zeschin, an award-winning magazine photographer, she has produced an equally lush book. It's lovely to look at, but it isn't going to teach gardeners--novice or experienced--anything new or fill their minds with information they couldn't get more easily (and less expensively) in extant volumes. Chapters treat the months of the year consecutively and tell us what to do, horticulturally, with them: February, for example, is a good time to prune fruit trees, while December is best spent doting on houseplants and holiday preparations. Interspersed throughout are directions for drying flowers, gilding pumpkins, painting urns and then some; the book authentically reflects the author's wide-ranging domestic interests. Considering all the acreage, and the hours, represented by the fruits of her labor, Stewart's assiduously picturesque tome may leave readers rather breathless. 250,000 first printing; ad/promo; Better Homes and Gardens main , BOMC HomeStyle alternate; author tour;

From Library Journal

This is the ultimate garden journal and, as typical of its kind, is intensely personal. It illustrates the gardening year on Stewart's six acres at Westport, Connecticut, and is filled with photographs of Stewart pruning, raking, digging, transplanting, as well as recipes and monthly lists. Some information is probably found nowhere else (how to antique a cement planter, how to gild a pumpkin); however, the cultural information will be duplicated in any basic gardening guide. The main interest is in Zeschin's photographs; Stewart's strong visual sense shows on every page, whether of a sweep of perennial border or a shelf of empty vases in the workshop. Buy where interest in the Stewart lifestyle is high and budgets are deep. Previewed in Prepub Alert, LJ 7/91.

By Gwyneth Calvetti VINE VOICE on November 7, 2000
Format: Hardcover
I know, I know, this is Martha's stuff, the woman we all love to hate! However, the book is arranged in a friendly fashion, giving a month-by-month tour of her gardens, with information on typical chores she will expect from her gardeners that month!
As with everything else Martha does, her gardens are on a grand scale and ambitious. What I like about this book are several things: she gardens in a similar climate zone to mine; her gardens are generally unpretentious, and her English-inspired style is one I enjoy. Each month, she lays out the work needing to be done for the various flower and vegetable gardens, then focuses on a seasonal aspect of her garden. The book is lavishly illustrated, and for those of us who are visual people--what gardener isn't?--the ideas are inspiring.
The information is fairly basic, but actually useful to those who are beginning to garden on a more serious scale. She does not seem to depend heavily on chemical warfare and emphasizes such basics as good soil preparation and the other down and dirty aspects of good gardening. If your gardening budget can afford it and you find inspiration from good garden design photos, this book is worth your time and money.

Over here in England, we are just beginning to be included in the Martha Stewart 'empire'. (Of cousre we have our own home grown lifestyle gurus, but I think a toughie like Martha could wipe the floor with the lot of them!) As a keen gardener I was eager to get my hands on this book to learn more about American gardening plants and styles, and ideas; to my surprise this book is in essence a rehash of the work of the very English Penelope Hobhouse, Rosemary Verey and Christopher Lloyd! Still, a good book, and a good read, despite the photographic quality not being up to the usual standards for garden books.
Basically, it's good for inspiring beginners; however, if you want to garden in 'le style anglais' go to straight Penelope Hobhouse. As I believe they say in the States - she's got it going on!

Once again, Martha has inspired us with her advice and illustrations. This book follows Martha month to month in her (and her staff's) preparations of flower and vegetable gardens, the trees and shrubs at Turkey Hill.It helps one to understand the layout of her gardens there. Some recipes using items from her garden are included. It does not give as much advice as one might expect, but inspires all the same. Martha does have much for all of us to learn, men and women!Yes, there are some things we wouldn't use in day to day living, but, almost everything she covers in her books and on her shows(from climbing trees to beekeeping to cooking and gardening) are very pragmatic.

Don't automatically assume that this is just another slick, coffee-table book. I've owned more gardening books that I care to admit and during a recent 'clean-out' and general overhaul of my gardening library, this is one of the few books that stayed on my shelf. There are literally dozens of backyard gardening missives with bibliographies that read like a who's who of horticultural academia. In other words, so many out there are just passing around the same old information with a different cover page. Sure, Martha undoubtedly has hired assistance that most of us can only drool over, but she still has legitimate experience to offer which is what helps to separate this book from many of it's more mundane peers. She also takes the time to focus on heirloom varieties as well as offering the option of the organic approach (which she appears to favor) as well as chemical-based alternatives. It surely doesn't hurt that there are pages packed with almost unbelievable profusion whether it be from the flower or vegetable gardens, the property is truly a work of art, even if it is not by Martha's hand alone. This is the heady stuff of any gardeners wildest imagination come true and no matter whether or not it is attainable by the majority of us, it is a heavy dose of inspiration combined with practical and legitimately useful information as a welcome bonus. Well worth the read.

Martha knows a lot about gardening, which she learned a great deal of from her father. Her book," Martha Stewart's Gardening Month By Month" is my favorite gardening book to return to again and again. In this book, she goes through each step of the gardening process in a month by month format, explaining what to do during each month of the year, as she shows you how she created her beautiful gardens at Turkey Hill Farm in Connecticut. You will learn how to plan your garden,about soil preparation,what and where to plant,all with gorgeous color photos. You'll learn about growing vegetables,fruits, flowers and herbs. She's even included some recipes! There is a handy index, bibliography and source guide in the back of this large 360 page book.

This is THE manual to use when starting a garden. This is truly a gardening bible for green thumb homeowners. We've used Martha's tips and tricks extensively with our gardens at home, but what I love about this book is that she makes it EASY to understand. I appreciate that the book is laid out with monthly garden tasks, but then blends in sections on planning and establishment as well.
