|This is a book for you to make your own garden and how to care for it when you are finished. If you already have a garden and want changes the author takes you through those as well. You find out when is the best time to re-plant, how to re-plant into pots, types of soil is best, how much or how little you should water which I found is very helpful and in the long run can save you money in not having to repurchase plants. She also gives you suggestions on the types of plants you want because certain ones attract different birds, or some even attract butterflies. I found this book to be full of useful information and a very handy book to have around for me in my shed with all of my gardening and replanting items. A very good book. I received this book from Netgalley.com I gave it 5 stars. Follow us at www.1rad-readerreviews.com|
