What are the pros? Book is informative

What are the cons? Some information isn't helpful

Review:

I read this book many years ago and lost my copy. I can only go by my failing memory now. When I read it, I enjoyed it. It told me things that I never knew before and had nobody to tell me. My family was not organic gardeners. My father had a garden and did not know a lot about gardening although he had lots of experience. He just didn't have a lot of organic know-how. What I remember most was trying to grow cabbage next to onions because I was told that they were good companions. Onions did not help remove bugs although I planted a lot of them all over the place. I didn't even like onions. I just wanted to rid myself of the bug infestation that renders holes in cabbage leaves. It did no good. I wonder how bad it would have been if I tried nothing at all. I also tried growing radishes, onions and turnips together, but those were not my favorite vegetables. The radishes came up and rabbits ate the carrots. I did not care for the onions.I loved the book but don't remember useful stuff.

What are the pros? Helpful in planting my garden

What are the cons? failed to specify companions

Review:

I do enjoy the companion planting info here but there are many entries like the chile pepper section that fail to even discuss companion plants. i own Many gardening books. I bought this for companion plants, not a rundown of peppers.. unless they have different companion needs its wasteful and useless when i bought it for a companion guide. . this is true in many area of the book and is incredibly frustrating. if you claim to be a companion planting book, don't forget to write about the plants companions.

Review:

This book is great! It was exactly what I was looking for. Explains what herbs and flowers can be planted with my vegetables to keep away certain bugs. Also gives hints on what is compatible to make my vegetable thrive! I know I will refer to this book over and over again. Great Read.

What are the pros? Great reference book

What are the cons? Nothing not to like

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!
