Great book on growing garlic. I have spent many a night browsing websites on growing garlic and I still felt like I didn't have the "whole picture" I picked up this book and read it cover to cover in a day. I really wish I would have read it earlier. The author presents the information on growing garlic in a very clear and concise way. I highly recommend for beginning garlic growers to read this.

Well, I never actually finished reading this book, but I faced the fact that I was probably never going to finish reading this book, so I decided to take it off my currently reading list. I will probably just give it to Tony...

Anyway, I read enough to know that it is a kick ass book if you are interested in growing garlic, especially if you want to grow enough to sell.

If you want to grow garlic, you need this book.

On my blog, I detailed how we used this book to make all the major decisions about planting garlic: http://anniekateshomeschoolreviews.co...

I am looking for another book to read book on garlic. The history was interesting but does not look like it would be easy to use as a reference.

I am liking this a lot. It's already on my 'to buy' list.

I didn't read this cover to cover but it's just right for me.
