Review:

I have many garden books in my library and I use a dozen for reference, this book being one of them. I have to say after reading over 80 plus gardening books...this one is a winner. During the main gardening season I rotate crops and utilize the companion planting outlined in this book and I must say year after year I never seem to have pest problems! With that said, I would recommend this book. Also, the Author of this book also wrote a book called "Astrological Gardening", which I highly recommend. Enjoy

Review:

I have only gardened for 2 years now and only used this method of gardening from the book! Both times the soil was from a new plot and not nourished from the season before (I called it my "God's mercy garden") and only ammended what I could as we planted. Using this method to organic garden deterred pests, the soil was just bad for weeds, but hoping each successive year will be better! Our plants grow beautifully and abundant using this method. Now, to learn how to get more out of our plantings in zone 3 and we'll be good to go!

Review:

This book was written by a well known and now deceased gardener that lived on a farm in Oklahoma. There seems to be some aspects of "rumor" or qualitative assuming going on in the text here and there. I'd still recommend this book to people, but I have my doubts about some entries, such as the one on Chamomile where she says that it is an excellent companion for cabbages and onions. Frankly, I didn't notice a bit of difference with the brassica or onions I planted close to the chamomile.
