I am not going to lie to you. I have a black thumb. It's true and sad. I have killed every plant I have ever touched. True Story.
So when I had the chance to review a book on seed starting I was a little leery. I thought it would make me feel stupid and inept for not being able to grow green things.
It didn't. Seed Starting is a fantastic book for those of us that have black thumbs and those of us that have semi-black thumbs to give us confidence in starting our own gardens.
"Growing a garden isn't difficult if you take it step by step. The first step
starts with a seed. In this easy to follow guide, Gary Emmett, expert gardener,
shares how simple it is to take that first step to growing a beautiful garden.
Come and get growing with Gary."
Seed Starting The First Step to Gardening by Gary Emmett is a great book written in a conversational style that is easy to read and very personable.
