Very handy to have around for the gardeners who are tight on space in their gardens. Overall it's a good book. Lots of information to have and refer back to. Some of the layout bothers me, and there is a huge 2 page section with lots of nice information on peppers - however no companions?! I'm not sure if they got too busy going into details about hot peppers vs sweet they forgot the reason for the book? So that was a big let down also. The book is grouped by veggies, herbs, flowers, etc so in theory you should be able to find exactly what you are looking for, though it didn't always seem to work that way for me. Even knowing what I know about it, I would still buy it again.
