Format: Paperback
This book has so many sticky notes and paper clips marking pages on it, it barely fits on my shelf now! I became a fan of Frankie's on BT, for his gardening segments. His tips on TV were always smart, relevant, and something new - you could tell he was a gardener and loves it - he didn't just lend his face and name to this book.

So, got this book to help me become a better gardener. I'm three years in. Flowers the first two years, flowers and veggies this year at the cottage. Instead of fumbling through, I wanted to research, find resources, and combine that with the coaching I've received from the resident gardeners in my family - my grandparents and my mom.

Just like a cookbook, I hate gardening books without full colour pictures. This one is full of colour pictures and since I'm visual, this helps me to see what is being written about.

Things I love -
- The index in the back by flower that lists the latin name and sun/shade location
- Its set-up seasonally, so you can read it piece by piece
- The tips sprinkled throughout in cute little garden marker graphics
- Great perennials and annuals section - so often at the nursery, the little tags tell you shade or sun, but there's no description of what plants like what, why, where to put it, does it like neighbors, etc - the section in this book goes into detail on that in paragraph form and also in a chart, which is really helpful. Because I hate spending money at the nursery on a plant that's so beautiful on the little tag, says sun, and I put it close to neighboring plants and it dies as it likes to be alone!

Overall, I really like it. Frankie did a great job in this easy-to-read, informative, detailed book (without too much detail) that I'll continue to use this year and beyond. Thanks for helping my garden grow!!!

The book is a beginners guide with useful tips and information. I have read it from cover to cover and have enjoyed every minute of it! The book is divided into growing seasons which is very useful as it tells you what you need to be doing and when. For example, when fertilizing the lawn the different numbers of the formulas and when you need to increase one and decrease the other was very useful. I would recommend this book for novice gardeners an informative and fun read.
