The Shoestring Gardener Review

The Shoestring Gardener … OK let’s get down to business. My aim is to help you out in your decision – should you buy or should you leave it on the shelf?. So, time for a matter-of-fact admission – I haven’t used or purchased the product (see my About page for an explanation), but I have crossed the internet tracking down info on it, to save you time. For actual purchaser reviews see the ‘Customer Reviews’ section to the right. So get ready as I save you time and tell you all you need to know about The Shoestring Gardener.

The Shoestring Gardener scores 74.44/100 which is about standard.

Your buying options

Hopefully by now you’ve read through the résumé of what the product does (or claims to do…). You’ve read the user reviews on the right hand side of the page. Perhaps you’ve even decided you’d like to buy the product. So what now?

Option 1: Buy Direct

You click on the following link to http://www.shoestringgardener.com/, and look for their link to buy the product. You’ll be taken to the payment processor page and you can make payment using a credit/debit card or PayPal. As of the time of writing the standard price for the product is $10.95.


Option 2: Buy Through My Link

If you click this link: shoestringgardener.com you’ll also be taken through to shoestringgardener.com, where you can go through the same process as Option 1. In this case though, because you arrived at the site via a special link, I get the credit for sending over a potential buyer. If you do end up buying, I will be given a commission. There’s no difference in the cost to you. You might like to go for this option if:
  • You feel this site has helped you and you’d like to say thanks.
  • You’d like to be eligible for a purchase bonus (see below)
