Seed Starting (e-book) by Gary Emmett ~ A Mosaic Review

We are not gardeners! As much as we want to be, we haven't had much success when it comes to having a family garden. This is why I was thrilled to have the opportunity to review Seed Starting - The First Step to Gardening by Gary Emmett.
 In A Nutshell:
~Kindle edition e-book
~Title: Seed Starting - The First Step to Gardening
~Author: Gary Emmett (Major in Landscaping, managed a Garden Center, trained garden center owners about fertilizers and chemicals, currently is the local Parks Director)
~Price: $2.99 on Amazon
~approx. 34 pages
~7 chapters (Planning Your Garden, All About Seeds, Potting Soils, Growing Equipment, Do You Have Enough Light, Other Growing Needs, Ready to Transplant)

My Thoughts:
I love that this was a quick, easy read. Gary has a knack for explaining what is necessary without being overly wordy. After reading this book I was able to determine that most of our gardening failures are a direct result of not starting seed, using the wrong soil and using the wrong seeds! I especially like that Gary shares his favorite types of seeds and where to purchase them! We will definitely be using what we learned from Gary's book to help us plant our next garden!

Pin It!


  1. I might have to get that book...We attempted to start our seeds a few weeks ago and none of them have germinated...back to square one!

    1. Cari,
      Thanks for stopping by! There is a TON of information packed into this little book! I really got a lot out of it. Good luck with your gardening!
