As you can imagine by the title, this series is heavily centered around plants and plant-tending, which you may adore or find tearfully boring. I think no matter your prior plant proclivities, your curiosity and appreciation for the botanical world will definitely be glutted. As a hobby gardener and arboretum volunteer with a general nerdiness toward horticulture, I had unreasonably high hopes for this series, and I was blown away! I came for the plants and stayed for the relatable main character, the lovely music, the quirky comedy, and the endless education tidbits, including addressing plant issues, highlighting specific nifty plants, cultural notes, etc -- done in a cute, playful way that draws you in. Impressively well-researched, well-organized, and with layers and depth that I was not expecting from teasers that seemed "fluffy". Seriously, if you are on the fence, definitely give this a chance. In the very least, I think the series will help you slow down and breathe a bit more deeply as you vicariously bask in the enthusiastic protagonist's floral (and personal) struggles and triumphs.
