Review:

I bought a copy of this book from a different source about twenty years ago when I lived in another southern state. I still have it, with all of the bookmarks that I've made over the years. It is a very informative book.

Review:

I bought this book in 1987. This book is full of useful information! When I became a Certified Master Gardener, in Orlando, Florida, it was used extensively! I still have that well worn book! 30 years later I still use it! She has another book on subject as well, ROSES LOVE GARLIC! There are other books by this author as well, all worth their cost!

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.
