Net Galley Book Review coming 8/20 :
I loved this book. Both my Grandparents and Parents have been life long gardeners . As they got older we have helped them still garden bye using some of these tips in this book. . Now they do lots more container and small raised gardening spots in the yard. And flowers they buy lots of bulbs and perennials . Which my son plants so that they can enjoy flowers and plants year long. If you have a gardener in your family that may need help buy them this book for great ideas…. Lisa
