Wonderful resource!

I'm so glad I came across Whitney's book and printables! I've missed most of planting season in Florida but am already started planning for next year using the printables. Love this resource!! In addition to useful information, the e-book is beautiful as well!

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.
