“It was very informative and educational. I was thinking of using water crystals and for sure now I am not. I tell my daughters and granddaughters always learn something new every day and this PDF has taught me some new things (after all one gets old the minute they stop learning !!). Again, thank you very much.” Diana Grindel
“Absolutely love it. Lots of good sensible useful ideas and techniques and info. I personally am going to start a moveable garden in an old BBQ that I’m no longer using.” – Lynn Thompson
“I thought it was excellent, and certainly gave me something to think about.” – Jan Payne, Caloundra African Violet & Indoor Garden Society
“This will be very useful for me. I am recently diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. I do not have the energy or physical capability to go out and prepare a normal garden in the ground plus where I live it’s impossible to stick a shovel in the ground. You have to use one of those long bars to break up the ground and to remove rocks. It’s too costly for larger beds and again, not enough energy, so I thought about planting some of my favorite foods in flower pots which will be more manageable for me. This guide will give me some good pointers. If I’m successful this year I’ll send pictures. Thank you again and God Bless you.” – Claudia Roche
“I am hoping it will rekindle the interest in gardening I had, but, because of circumstances happening this end and age, I guess, I have not kept up the interest, but I have a deep-seated feeling that your Guide will help to get me out of the rut and I feel I will try to remember your words “grow good health.” I admire you so much and wish you every success. Thank you.” – Heather Clarke
“Thanks yet again for some wonderful information in your Container Gardening Guide. I look forward to trying out many new ideas.” – Carol Skyring
“Thanks for the information about container gardening. We are currently traveling in a motor home and this content is very pertinent to us especially now. The small containers also allow us to use them at home when we get there, a mobile garden. Thanks again.” – Stephanie Denninghoff
“It is well written & I am enjoying it.” – Betty
“I found it very interesting! I’ll have to see if I can perhaps put some things you suggest into practise! One thing that struck me was the section on water crystals. I used some for my hanging baskets a couple of years ago, I had no idea they were made from petroleum products! Just last autumn our water company sent me some products for use in the garden & amongst them were a couple of packets of water crystals! I was planning on using them in my baskets this year as I have to plant them up in a couple of weeks’ time. I only grow flowering plants, like hanging Begonias, Lobelia, etc in them. Now I’m not so sure! Happy gardening.” – David King
