would be better to watch as a video

I enjoyed listening to this speaker. I wish I could see her demonstrations that she did, as without the visible instructions, you can only imagine what she is trying to explain.

very informative

I loved this, however there is a tonne of reference to visuals which makes understanding the content a little less easy.

a frustrating listen

Should have read the review on this one. The narrator is constantly referring to what is clearly and endless stream of visual aides and planting demonstrations. There is some helpful info but the constant references to visual aides while listening to an audio only track is frustrating. This is not a lecture like all of the other Great Courses I have in my library. It's like listening to a demonstration while blindfolded. Google the title instead and watch the video preview. If you like the preview, then spring for a source with video instead.

video format with just the audio

this was far subpar to the standard I'm use to from TGC content. I was expecting an academic approach to gardening, I was hoping to learn more on soil theory & compost methodologies and instead I got a YouTube audio strip. With content focused on the presenters personal taste with little substance or course structure. This was the first Great Coarse "Lecture" I have returned. highly disappointed.
