The title of this work, Gardening Shortcuts, refers to the explanatory writing style, in bite-sized pieces, to learning about basic gardening practices, not to the time and work involved in actually gardening. The photography, layout, and advice are all well done and correct, but the shortcut is doing something corectly the first time, rather than having to do it all over. We all know that shortcut.
