From Publishers Weekly

While this book's subtitle may be an overstatement-despite the quirky illustrations and chatty style, there isn't much "groundbreaking" advice here-the book itself is a competent guide to getting a little dirt under your fingernails. Trail, a graphic designer, writer, gardener and creator of, believes gardening, like knitting and crocheting, has become cool again. Her advice to young women who want to take up the hobby is "follow your heart." Gardening doesn't have to be intimidating, she says, and her book certainly proves that. In instructional subdivisions such as "Mulch, Love It or Leave It" and "Not Your Grandmother's Gardening Apron," she coaches readers on basic aspects of gardening, keeping her tone light and her advice simple. Chapters detail planting, growing, collecting bounty (like herbs, fruits and vegetables) and preparing a garden for winter. Each project-from assembling devices to keep pests away to instructions for growing potted tomatoes-is marked to show its difficulty level, and Trail is equally attuned to the needs of both city dwellers and those with more space to develop their green thumb. 100 color photos.

Von babsifav
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
"groundbreaking" ist vielleicht übertrieben, aber dieses buch ist echt der perfekte einstieg ins gärtnern. vor allem für junge stadtmenschen...

gute tipps, alles biologisch und völlig unverkrampft. passt für alle, die spass daran haben, etwas wachsen zu lassen egal ob im eigenen garten oder einem blumenkistl vor dem fenster.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Not just for the new gardener 7. März 2005
Von mom22cherubs - Veröffentlicht auf
This book is fantastic. I have been gardening for 8 years and I wish I had had this book when I started. Even though it's target audience is the young city dweller. I, a suburban housewife and mother of two, find it more useful than all my other gardening books (I love Martha, but I just don't have that kind of time or money!).

All the basics are here, distilled into an easy to read format that is fun to read and ispiring. In addition, the book has lots of fun projects that are affordable and easy.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Very inspiring - a great primer for organic and urban gardening! 15. Januar 2007
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf
Great book about gardening, particularly urban and organic gardening. The author's passion for gardening just exudes from this book and inspires me to grow things and get my hands dirty! It provides a very good lesson on what can and should be done; however, it doesn't go into a great deal of specifics (but how can it, since it covers so much ground!)... you will need to do more homework to do what you are inspired by this book to do. Fortunately there is a great list of resources in the back. You Grow Girl also contains a lot of garden-related projects (like making a gardening tool belt (apron), making seed packets, and making herbal bath & body products. Highly recommended reading, especially right before spring! YOU GROW GIRL! (For additional resources, and to get a feel for how material is presented, visit the website!!)

5.0 von 5 Sternen Brings the fun into gardening.... 29. April 2005
Von C. Tucker - Veröffentlicht auf
I ran across [...] and found this book. It's given me a completely different perspective on gardening....from clueless to hopeful. After reading this book I feel I have the confidence to grow things that don't die after the first week. The book was very easy to read, very colourful and interesting. I highly recommend it to someone who is even just slightly interested in plants.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Useful for very new gardeners 2. April 2012
Von Laura McDonough - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I can see how this book would be useful for someone just starting out, or who has maybe grown a few flowers in pots/containers, but never jumped into something more serious. I am on my 2nd vegetable garden (started last year) and I am clearly well beyond what is offered in this book.

I was hoping to get more info on growing vegetables & herbs --more details on best ways to plant, feed, water, and when to harvest. I got almost nothing out of the book for these topics.

It's a fine book if you are really starting out and unsure of yourself, but not if you understand how to start things up already. I'm just tired of searching on the interest every time I have a question, given the quality of advice out there is really hit or miss. Guess I'm going to keep searching.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Fabulous! 22. Oktober 2005
Von Mark Twain - Veröffentlicht auf
Although I question the subtitle (not much groundbreaking info here!), I love this book. I have a number of fat, wordy gardening tomes, but this provides the most essential, critical info in a short, simple format. Great job!
