Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Cornell offers plenty of compelling reasons to give gardening a try, and she invites readers with all different levels of experience, space, and tools to garden with her throughout the seasons. An introduction hits the basics, such as evaluating your climate zone, available space, and soil. Four chapters, one for each season, include three projects each. Many of the projects require very few special supplies, and some encourage reusing items that may be bound for the trash. Both food and flowers are the fruits of all the projects, including growing your own avocado plant, making a strawberry basket, and forcing daffodil bulbs. Color photographs, worthy of glossy gardening magazines, are shown alongside drawings of each step of the projects, making them easy to follow even for young readers. Back matter includes more gardening websites to explore and links to suppliers of gardening supplies. This book encourages budding horticulturalists with the notion that gardening doesn't have to depend on having access to the perfect climate and location.--Anderson, Erin Copyright 2014 Booklist"
