a frustrating listen

Should have read the review on this one. The narrator is constantly referring to what is clearly and endless stream of visual aides and planting demonstrations. There is some helpful info but the constant references to visual aides while listening to an audio only track is frustrating. This is not a lecture like all of the other Great Courses I have in my library. It's like listening to a demonstration while blindfolded. Google the title instead and watch the video preview. If you like the preview, then spring for a source with video instead.

video format with just the audio

this was far subpar to the standard I'm use to from TGC content. I was expecting an academic approach to gardening, I was hoping to learn more on soil theory & compost methodologies and instead I got a YouTube audio strip. With content focused on the presenters personal taste with little substance or course structure.
This was the first Great Coarse "Lecture" I have returned.
highly disappointed.

Not suitable for audiobook.

narration lacks enough detail to be suitable as an audiobook. half the book is the narrator talking about pictures without description.

Not meant to be an audiobook

She refers to a lot of photos, videos, or other visualizations and does not describe them for an audiobook audience.

Absolutely abysmal

This has to be the worst example of an audible. The subject really needs the visuals which are constantly referred to.

narrator's voice very scratchy

The information given is very very basic, no better than a you tube video; assumes you have little or no common sense.

Not specifically written as an audio course.

It was frustrating to not see things meant to be learned visually.

"... and you do it just like that. "

not helpful without a visual cue.
