    "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.

    "Disappointed"

    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.

    "Must Have for Urbanites"

    Many years ago I bought my father an Earth Box and he loved it! It's a small container for gardening and it helps fruits and veggies grow like wildfire!

    This audiobook has made me even more interested in gardening here in my urban apartment! I really enjoyed the wide variety of tips that Joy Louis offered and I can't wait to try them out!! Stacy Wilson does a phenomenal job and Joy's information is rich and very helpful.

    Pick this one up, today!

    "Gardening as a hobby"
    Would you listen to Ultimate Gardening Book: 5 Gardening Books in 1 again? Why?

    My home is located in an urban area and there is not much space for gardening so I got this book mostly because of urban homesteading guide. Thanks to this book I have realized how gardening can be fun and definitely can be done as a hobby. The author did an awesome job and included tips from planning your garden to its execution and I will definitely try to apply all the given steps. Thanks for this book!

    "An Excellent Gardening Compilation"

    I really liked how comprehensive this book is. It covers things from the root, so to speak. The basics and 101 of being a successful gardener, and it's also very useful for more experienced gardeners. It truly is educational, I learned a lot about soil, planting and how not to weaken your plants, which are the areas I struggle in.

    The narrator does an excellent job of reading clearly and evenly. Directions are easy to follow. I highly recommend this book for help and support with your gardening.

    "It's everything I need to know about gardening!"
    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Well, I love gardening and I didn’t realize I’m doing it all wrong! I'm surprised to found out why my plants are actually dying. I'm glad I've listened to this audiobook. It gave me awesome ideas to help me grow my plants healthy.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm giving this audiobook a 5-stars rating. I've learned so much about gardening-- from choosing the right containers, to watering and choosing the right fertilizers. Now I can make my own compost too, and control all the weed and pest in my own little garden.

    "Worth buying - great audiobook!"
    What made the experience of listening to Ultimate Gardening Book: 5 Gardening Books in 1 the most enjoyable?

    This audiobook clarified all I needed to know about gardening and I learned how to keep it simple and easy. There are also some great tips that save time, money, and unnecessary hassles. It is for both beginners and advanced gardeners, while it has a lot of information it is structured in a way that makes it really easy to listen and understand. I highly recommend it to anyone, because you can't beat this price and get so many useful info about gardening.

    "A gardeners best friend"

    I am thrilled to be able to purchase this audiobook at a discount for my honest opinion. This set is incredible, it has so much information in it that anyone who gardens whether a newbie to it or a novice can benefit from the information within these pages. Each book contains complete, invaluable information on each of its topics. It includes correct ways to plant, the containers to use and ways to make my own compost. Whenever I need to know how deep to plant, spacing or what nutrients plants need, it's all right there on one page! Highly recommended.

    "Not good value for money"

    The book provides a couple of good ideas, more inspiration than knowledge.

    Some chapters repeat themselves to the point where you start wondering whether the book was edited before being released.

    At points I found the level of “eco-friendly” baloney offensive; I bought a gardening book I don’t need suggestions that I should mend my socks (really it has a full chapter on mending your socks and other “tips”). Unscientific claims on “organic” food’s properties are also upsetting.

    Overall I wouldn’t recommend unless you have plenty of un-used credits like I did.
