The best raised bed starter book

Right, at last now that I’m in my eighth decade I have found my gardening guru.
Jason tells you things clearly and based on the information provided here you can not fail.
I do have ADVANCE MACULAR DEGENERATION (GOEGRAPHIC ATROPHY BILATERALLY) so finding a companion audio book has been an immense help
With that said I will return to this audio book time and time again.
Thank you Jason.

Basic beyond belief!

It feels like this audiobook is aimed at people who have never even been in a garden.
The first three chapters repeatedly describe what a raised bed is, and lists every different material you could possibly imagine to build them from.
If you have ever seen a raised bed, then your knowledge already outweighs the content of this 'book'. As it is more like the reading of a series of short page-filler articles from a free promotional magazine.
The lack of content seems to be made up for through repetition.
I even tried listening to chapters twice to ensure I wasn't missing the bigger picture. I wasn't.
You would be far better off spending your time in the garden getting some hands-on experience, as you will not learn much from this title.

Very informative!

The author gave an excellent overview of raised bed gardens, covering everything from creation of the bed, what to plant, how to plant, maintenance and pest control.

new gardener

never started a garden or done any kind of gardening so I was just looking for an overview of what to expect. he does sell the raised beds quite often but this gave me a good understanding without getting to into details. everything from setup to soil to types of fruits and vegetables and harvesting. seem to be pretty good for a beginner.
