discover this book Jean MacLeod s The Waste Wise Gardener Tips and Techniques to Save Time, Money, and Natural Resources While Creating the Garden of Your Dreams is such a helpful resource for gardeners of all levels.As a money conscious new gardener, I soaked up as many tips as I could, and I can t wait to see how my garden grows this year For example, MacLeod provides helpful information about water conservation, environmentally safe sprays, and composting Knowing this information ahead of time has helped me tremendously.Additionally, the book is organized in such an efficient and effective way By alphabetizing items, you can easily research and find what you are looking for when you need it rather than having to wade through information that is unhelpful in the moment flag

that I didn t encounter anywhere else, so it is safe to say that as a guide, it is pretty original in content.Only thing I am not so big fan of, and it is really just a personal preference, is alphabetical order of advice I don t like that for two reasons First, it makes sense to me to organize it by topic or something like that, just group it together somehow Second, it is not really a book to pick up and read, it is like a dictionary, and you don t just pick up a dictionary and read But, that is really minor and someone might like that just as much as I don t Still, a five star
