I am so glad that I bought this audiobook. It saved me making a lot of expensive mistakes in both the choice of materials that I had intended to buy to build my raised beds out of and the size of the raised beds.

It was detailed enough

Raised beds are discussed with the benefits of using this form of gardening and what plants benefit from this type of planting. It was detailed enough for someone with zero gardening experience.

Learn what can be done

Planning and doing further research

Lettuce has shallow roots; carrot roots grow deeper in the soil. They do not compete with each other for space. This is the first I had heard about plant compatibility and I have enjoyed using it for planning and doing further research.

A completely different story

Like many others, I took advantage of the lockdown last year by attempting to start a vegetable garden. My results were disappointing. Had I been armed with this audiobook, it would have been a completely different story.

The time to grow something

The author allows for questions and avenues to explore. It is a friendly advice for people looking to explore horticulture or just the idea they want better veggies or as in my case suddenly having the avenue, ability, and time to maybe grow something.
