Reviews - What do customers think about The Green Gardener: Working with Nature, Not Against It?
Good info, small book May 21, 2008
This book has some good info on green gardening, including several recipes for plant sprays. However, the typeface changes from large to tiny all over the place, and the titles of recipes and other topics are in a font that is a little too cute to read easily. Also, if you're going to include drawings of plants, either make them detailed enough so that people can use them to identify specimens, or use photos, or just mention both the common and the Latin names without pictures.
It is also a small book for the price. If in a 5" x 8" format, it would be a pamphlet.
