"Here, in easy-to-understand language, is the science-based knowledge vegetable gardeners need to make informed choices." -James Baggett, senior editor, Garden Gate magazine
"An approachable, fascinating read. As you learn the many, many benefits to pairing plants, you'll look at your garden in a whole new way." -Niki Jabbour, author of The Year-Round Vegetable Gardener.
It is an informative book and I will use it as a reference. I would have loved to see more pictures of pervasive insects and how to control them. But overall, a very good book.
