Very good indeed
Really well done book, it shows what can be done on the iPad to make a book different but staying within the page boundaries, the price is perfect.
Faults - nothing major except more in depth soil, compost and fertiliser data would of been nice.
We're in the midst of redoing our garden and are planning to dedicate a significant area to growing vegetables. Considering that up until now we had only grown a few vegetables for fun with our eldest the book has been a great help with our plan.
This book includes everything we would like to grow and more. Very easy to bookmark the pages we need for future reference. Also very impressed with the section illustrating common pest and problems which will not only help us identify any future issues but also touches only solutions and preventative measures.
Great stuff and wouldn't hesitate to recommend and as a user of iBooks Author I think DK have done a great job in bringing this title to the iPad.

Great book, completely interactive.
I am just starting out with growing my own veg and this book was a real help, and so handy being on the iPad! All the sections are completely interactive, taking you right through from preparing your veg patch to harvesting and preparing for the following year.
All of the sections are accompanied by step-by-step instructions, top tips and good quality colour images showing you exactly what you have to do - it's a real 'idiots guide' which was great for me :0)
I'd happily recommend it and it's really a steal at £4.99.
