As a beginning gardener, it seems like this has a lot of in-depth information about planting, tending, and troubleshooting berry plants, with descriptions of a lot of different cultivars—both differences in growing techniques and the fruits they produce. Will it actually work? Ask me at the end of the year.

The only berry I'm growing is strawberry, so I only focused on that topic. The topic of strawberry plants could be more thorough. For example, I'd like a section on how to distinguish one cultivar from another, especially if they're both everbearing. More photos of the specific diseases and pests would also help. Flea beetles are left out, I'm not sure why. I'd also like an explanation of how to prevent common problems with strawberry pots (ex waterlogging).
