    Visually fantastic But it didn't apply well to growing seasons in Canada It touched lightly on each plant something a simple Google could do but didn't dig into the relationships between plants fertilizers for each sunwater Nor did it provide any insight on laying outorganizing a garden plan It was merely a picture book for timings The tips for post harvest storage and seed collection were probably my most enjoyed section

    This is probably one of the most visually appealing gardening books I have read The pictures are beautiful and plentiful I found the information to be vague It tells you when to plant everything but does not go into much detail on how or the differences between certain zones This is not a book for a beginner as it would not give you the information you need to start out

    Backyard Harvest is set up by months which makes for a uniue and absolutely essential to me a beginner book In every month it tells you what you should be eating provided you had planted it previously what you should be planting what you should be pruning or transplanting or otherwise working on and usually a few pages on a seasonal appropriate subject A section on apples and apple trees in November for example The layout is gorgeous the instructions are easy to understand and I feel like after a few years of following this book I’ll be eating from my garden every month of the year with easeFor January for example if I had these things planted harvested or stored from last year I should be eating pickles stored root veggies newly lifted Salsify forced Belgian Endive and winter radishes among other tasty looking things I should be sowing indoors to transplant after the last frost early season leeks summer onions lettuce broad beans cut and come again greens and early peas and radishes For tending I should be amending my soil keeping an eye on my stored fruits and veggies for signs of rot pruning some of my fruit trees and picking up fallen leaves from hardy winter brassicas so they don’t cause rot at the base of the plants The feature for the month is building a seedbed both raised and non In January I should be harvesting celeriac early broccoli the aforementioned Belgian Endive and spring greens Another feature for the month is sprouting seeds for use in salads Each of these categories gets its own two page spread the monthly features occasionally getting four or It’s a lovely really useful book and one I HAD to own after getting it from the library It will be getting heavy use in the coming months I’m sureWhittingham has written or co written three other books – Vegetable Gardening and Grow Vegetables before this book and Simple Steps to Success Fruit and Vegetables in Pots after The latter appears to be a combination of the first two in a new format but I could be wrong So I’m not sure I’d recommend any of those three – I haven’t read them – but Backyard Harvest is awesomeYou can find all my reviews at Goddess in the Stacks

    Another DK success This book is layed out perfectly in my opinion It is not a dry text It is relatable and very easy to understand It has a monthly schedule of what to do in your garden and what to plant or what to harvest It gives advice on all kinds of things that help your garden and your own gardening skill thrive Just love it

    Beautiful pictures and month by month guide to gardening in all seasons would be great for those who live in the appropriate climate This is the American edition of a British publication so I assume the author mainly refers to planting in Great Britain There are no specifics about climate given or any real advice on how to adjust the given calendar to other climates For example in the spread on Growing Under Cover ie in cold frames or unheated greenhouses the author states It is particularly useful if you live in a cold area where spring comes late and fall comes early Of course cold early and late are all relative termsThis book is an introduction to gardening year round and certainly the calendar view is helpful but many beginners are going to need information on planting dates for their specific climate Overall this book might be good for ideas and inspiration but the information is vague Niki Jabbour's The Year Round Vegetable Gardener is a better resource for beginners with some good information on climate and Eliot Coleman's Winter Harvest Handbook will provide even specifics

    I found this book to be the most helpful of the 20 books I have picked up about gardening It's our first year gardening in any capacity and we know diddly suat about what to do This book would have come in SO handy in terms of how to plant seeds to transplant when to sow when to transplant It was especially handy because it told me at what temperature seeds are happiest In CO it is hard to know when to sow things because our last frost is as last as May This book was great because it showed what you could harvest in what month what you could plant what problems you should look for by month etc It is a year round guide that made me wish I could garden year round It also had great pictures of the bugs to watch out for the diseased plants and why they look like etc I think I might go buy this book
