What Others are Saying…
Patti Estep, Hearth and Vine
As a home gardener for over 30 years I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who wants to get their fingers into the garden. I am amazed at how easy to follow and how comprehensive the information covers. Everything from planning, planting, harvesting and yearly maintenance. The checklists, and additional journal areas are also a great addition, helping the gardener stay on track. Anyone who follows this book would surely have a startle garden they would cherish.
Jennifer Prior, Little Green Farmhouse
Startle Garden is my new favorite book. As soon as you open, you’re drawn in by Carole’s passion for gardening, a wealth of useful information, and beautiful photos. While it is the perfect book for the novice gardener, it is so much more than that. This is not just a book to read, but rather a book to DO as you go.
She includes detailed instructions about a wide variety of topics from building raised beds, creating healthy soil, sprouting seeds and bringing in the harvest. I love that Carole emphasizes adding beauty and flair to the garden with eye-catching flowers, attractive containers, and cute garden signs. This is a book you will not want to skim. Both the novice and experienced gardener can glean nuggets of inspiration from each page.
Dara Ekanger, Senior Editor Molly Green Magazine
Gardens are always beautiful, but some just “startle” you with their brilliance! That’s the point of this delightful Book from Carole West. With a little bit of planning, you can have a garden that is not only practical and productive for the body, but inspiring and nourishing for the soul.
The book starts out explaining the origin of the “Startle Garden” and gets you going on selecting the right soil, location, and design. The author provides options for raised beds, important steps for preparing, maintaining rich soil, and choosing proper plants. She then provides valuable information on seed selection, germination, and transplanting care.
Chapter 9, “Adding Garden Flair,” is where you get the ideas for personalizing your garden by adding “fun, artistic items that incorporate personality.” Truthfully, I’ve never been that creative in my garden before, but the pictures and ideas are inspiring!
This book is just what budding and experienced gardeners will enjoy reading.
Courtney Johnson, The Kitchen Garten
Both beginner and seasoned gardeners will find valuable gems in Carole’s Startle Garden. Her take on the backyard garden contains practical information you would expect: soil, sowing, maintaining, and harvesting, but it also goes beyond with wonderful tips on how to add garden flair. We all desire productive and successful gardens, and this book has all of the tools and tips to get you there.
Joyce Olson, At Home with Jemma
Carole outlines six key observations that are often overlooked in gardening. Each chapter is carefully organized and brimming with useful diagrams, tips, eye catching photographs and step by step instructions. I’m a hands on learner and love the workbook approach she has used. This is certainly a one of a kind gardening book and will be a welcome addition to the novice or seasoned gardener’s Library.
Donna Williams, Funky Junk Interiors
If you love the thought of creating a beautiful garden, but are overwhelmed on where to start, this book is your ticket to success! But don’t be fooled by the beautiful imagery. Carole breaks it down, so you too can create an oasis, even in the smallest of corners!
