Pros:Great real-life ideas, nice tempo

Cons:Silly quotes, all signed "Rebecca"

I have watched Rebecca since she was the meteorologist on the local news. Even then, she managed to plant a rooftop garden atop the station building in downtown Minneapolis and she did garden tips and features from there. While Martha Stewart strikes me as condescending and unnaturally perfect in all the unimportant areas, Rebecca instantly makes me feel as if she was just giving advice to a friend or doing a how-to class at the local nursery.

The magazine is laid out so it is easily read and accessed and the features are both useful and creative. They give detailed information on the plants and projects, and the ideas are without all the pomp and circumstance that are the staple of other garden mags. The monthly-pull outs are a great way to start a garden "wish list" and I am especially fond of the kids section. With six kids of my own, I have my hands full when they all want to "help" in MY garden.

I followed Rebecca's advice and created a small garden for my kids. Despite my suspicion that this would end in some sort of catastrophe, we trudged on to make the "Fairy Garden" of my children's dreams. I let them pick the seeds, plan where to put them, plant, water, weed and nurture their own garden. When I suggested that Hollyhocks should be grown toward the inside of the garden, I was rewarded with a series of "Oh, mom!"s and I learned to bite my tongue. I was surprised to see how good my children became at planning as a team, working together, following a project through, and I was especially surprised to find one day that they had created a stunning garden in a very unusual way.

Rebecca's Garden constantly reminds you to pay attention to the wonder of the earth around you and, as always, to "get your hands dirty". Seems like advice that everyone should follow.
