Hello, It didn't answer a lot of my specific questions with regards to issues I was having in my garden. I found the info too general. Had I been able to peruse the e-book prior to ordering it, I probably wouldn't have bought it.

Love this book I have a raised bed garden for my vegetables and some pots for my herbs, so this book has come in handy! So glad I have it!
Covers the subject much more thoroughly than I expected. Information on watering, light, fertilizing, soil, pests; as well as everything you need to know (from planting to harvest) for a long list of vegetables and most common herbs. Very pleased with the purchase - useful for novice and seasoned gardeners alike.
Very thorough. A wonderful resource I'll refer to many times. Adding the forms and lists is very helpful. The Old Farmer's Almanac comes through again with this publication.
I thought i order a hard copy of this book. If i can not get it as a hard copy i would like a refund please.
I’m new to the Almanac but I am astonished at the wealth of information included in each of your guides. Practical advice for the home gardener. Thank you!
A wonderful resource at a very low cost. I question the last frost day chart. For my town in Canada the date is at least 2 weeks earlier than locals assume and 3 weeks earlier than the government weather station says. But that is a quibble. I love the book.
This is a perfect handbook for me. I'm new to gardening and this has so much valuable information and bits of old wisdom. I've gotten a lot from it and have begun to plan for next year's bigger garden.
I would like to purchase a hard copy.
I really wanted this in hard copy. For me reference books are meant to be written in……the pages for notes aren't accessible via the format this is in, so there are a lot of pages that just don't do much good. I could print, but 130 pages is a bit much to do that. It really looks like a great little book, just wish it was still available in hardcover. A few sections need to be expanded more - like compatible plants, but hey, it's more info than I had!
What a wonderful source of information. Well organized and thorough!
