Very helpful for a beginning gardener

I loved this workbook! I found it incredibly helpful for a beginning gardener, easy to use, practical, beautifully designed, and not too much information to feel like you’re drowning like some garden books.

Not what I thought

Although I appreciate the hard work that went into THE GARDEN HANDBOOK, I was disappointed.... the book wasn’t what I thought it would be (I thought more flower gardens vs veggies). My fault for not investigating further.

Amazing Handbook

This is an absolute must have. I was raised around gardening, but it always seemed too complicated for me to remember all the things. This handbook is exactly what I was looking for to help me step by step through the process. It is nice to have as a guidebook to look back on as I am in the process. Thank you so much for writing this!

An invaluable Resource!

Decided to start a garden on a whim & amongst countless hours scrolling resources, gathering all the info I could, this journal has it ALL! Paired with beautiful images and illustrations, I feel beyond equipped to seed-start, tend to, and harvest my future garden! I've started seeds at this point & I'm thrilled our last frost is so soon! SO thankful to have this handbook as a guide!
