5.0 étoiles sur 5 Gotta Garden Loves It! 11 novembre 2007
Par Catherine G. Cook - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
This is such a delightful book! If you collect garden books, as I do, then I know you'll want to add this one. Full of tidbits, lists, advice, recipes, quotes and all sorts of gardening information arranged by season...you're sure to find bits that will also make you laugh! I'm so glad Mr. Edworthy moved to the country and became so curious! You'll be glad you bought it!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A lovely little book -- well worth the money 15 novembre 2007

I bought this as a gift for a friend, and have been reading it myself, and I love it. I might just keep it :-) or order another one. Any gardener would love this book on their shelf. And it's pretty too, and has a ribbon bookmark in it.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A Nice Little Read 8 mai 2011
Par Spencer Schankel - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
First, please let me get a peeve out of the way. "The Curious Gardener's Almanac" is not an almanac at all, and thus, for me a bit of a disappointment. It does not contain anything like planting times, phases of the planets, weather forecasts, or data about the tides, and so should have been titled something else. Niall Edworthy, the author, might have called it an "Omnibus of Gardening" or perhaps "Gardening Vignettes and Recipes" or something entirely more original, but not an almanac.

That said I found this little book charming, amusing, interesting, engaging and informative. For example I didn't know that carrots and zucchini are both suitable for container growing. Who'd have thought? Or, that raspberry leaf tea is effective to treat sore throat and diarrhea? Or, that Americans consume thirty pounds of potatoes annually and a quarter of that is French fries. (Since I don't eat French fries, someone is getting a good deal more.) I didn't know that Prince Charles is paid one daffodil a year as rent on unattended lands on the Scilly Isles. Here's one that's really scary: if there were no bees 100,000 plant species would vanish.

And so it goes with little wise sayings and recipes for pesto sauce or six ways to use parsley. This is the kind of book one can leave on the nightstand and open like the Bible in the middle of the night when an owl has awakened you and then go back to sleep in a while and not have bad dreams.

For that I thank the author.
4.0 étoiles sur 5 A very interesting and amusing little book. 12 mai 2011
Par H. S. Wedekind - Publié sur Amazon.com
This little book is not meant to be a DIY helper for serious gardeners. It's chock full of entertaining tidbits of information that range far and wide, i.e., from old sayings ("Eat leeks in March and garlic in May/ And all the year the doctors play.") to recipes (Spicy Zucchini Fritters) to poetry (My garden will never/ make me famous/ I'm a horticultural ignoramous. - Ogden Nash) to lists (Eleven plants slugs don't like.), etc. Keep it next to your bed and flip through a few pages before turning out the light, or, as one reviewer here said, on the magazine rack in your bathroom. Wherever, I'm sure you'll be treated to something you never knew before about plants, birds, bugs and, oh yes, gardening. 4 Stars
4.0 étoiles sur 5 Delightful Wisdom Book 7 septembre 2013
Par Alice Bidois - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
This book was left on a B&B table and its artistic appearance attracted me to it immediately. Printed in dark green, with numerous old-fashioned illustrations in the same ink, it shares all sorts of wise observations, witty comments, and useful advice. It's not really an almanac, but rather a treasure box that you are supposed to sip like tea in various sittings. It's a wonderful gift to a gardener and to anyone with a sense of humor. Perfect for a Christmas stocking.
