I just had to share this one, as it sounds like it could have been written totally for me…the “no thumbs gardender!” 🙂 Needless to say keeping anything green alive for more than a couple of weeks is not a strong suit of mine.
Right now over on Amazon we can download the Container Gardening – Secrets for the No Thumbs Gardener eBook for FREE (down from $1.77).
Having a large yard these days does not necessarily mean that gardening is the only thing that homeowners can do. As long as the care given to the plants you grow in a pot equals the care you would give to an ordinary garden, you can grow almost anything in a suitable container. You may have heard that any container can be used to grow your plants. However, when compared, there are some materials that are considerably better and easier to use — particularly for folks who are just getting into container gardening. Containers made from cheap plastic will ofttimes weaken and fade away in the sunshine. Although lightweight, this type of plastic was not designed for lasting useage.
William Ellis has learned the art of saving money in all aspect of his life. Learning about container gardening was a bonus for him. He initially made the mistake of spending too much money. William has put together this book mainly as a way to show garden lovers how they can continue to do what they love to do — but at a much lower cost. For those who are just starting in container gardening, you’ll learn how to avoid spending ridiculous sums of money on container gardening.
William also gives details of how to spend mere pennies when you start your plant from seeds. Compare this to several dollars it will cost to purchase plants as seedlings. He recommends you make the compost yourself. You can further save money by reducing the amount of garbage you dispose of. William admits he has made many mistakes in container gardening. He provides a list of those mistakes you might encounter — so you can avoid them.
Remember, although this book is intended for the Amazon Kindle, you can always download a free program that will allow you to read Kindle books right on your PC, iPad, iPhone, Mac or Blackberry!
Prices can change pretty quickly over on Amazon, so you’ll want to make sure that it hasn’t gone back up before you download.
