Great general and technical guide to gardening.

The time line to do list at the back is really helpful, but would be nicer if it was talored to specific planting zones.

Also, the variety of plants the book covers is great, but many of the vegetables I've never heard of, let alone considered planting.

Comprehensive guide, although not for the beginner or casual gardener.
