I love to gather ideas and I love to garden. I expected to love this book. However, I didn't learn anything new and the narrator grated on my nerves. The narrator obviously doesn't garden and even mispronounced words like potash. I kept having to remind myself that the author knew much more about the subject than the narrator. If you're totally new to gardening, you'll learn a lot. However, I only gleaned one new idea, and I can't remember what it was at the moment. I definitely won't waste my time listening to this one again. There are so many better books on the market, though not yet available on Audible. I'll stick to reading my print gardening books for a while longer.

Keeping your garden alive and vibrant

Would you consider the audio edition of Ultimate Gardening Book: 5 Gardening Books in 1 to be better than the print version?

Yes I would. I liked how while the book is being read to you, you could be IN your garden visualizing what is being said and trying to make actual connections from what you are learning and applying it to what you will do.

What other book might you compare Ultimate Gardening Book: 5 Gardening Books in 1 to and why?

Gardening 101 by Martha Stewart. She goes over the basics that most people might skip over like making sure the soil is actually ready to have a plant so it stays alive instead of dies in a few weeks. Making sure there are the right nutrients for the specific plant, and correct amount of humidity, water, and sunlight.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Gardening made simple.
