"As a novice gardener and avid researcher, I've been trying to compile all of the information I read to make sense of it all. This is far and away the BEST source I have found! It's easy enough that anyone can understand it, the course materials and designs are very helpful, and I love the organization by planting time - genius! Thank you Mr. Jimerson and thank you Craftsy!"
