In hunderten Vorträgen beantwortet der Autor seit Jahren die vielen Fragen der Hobbygärtner und Hobbygärtnerinnen. Kurz und prägnant ist dabei die Devise, gilt es doch, möglichst nichts unbeantwortet zu lassen – manchmal wird ihm nur mehr ein Stichwort zugerufen.
In seinem neuen Werk reiht er seine Antworten von A bis Z, von der "Aussaat" bis zum "Zurücklehnen", und wählt dabei genau jene Begriffe aus, nach denen er am häufigsten gefragt wurde. Er widmet sich besonders ausführlich den Themen Schädlinge und Krankheiten sowie dem Nutzgarten mit Kräutern, Gemüse und Obst und gibt neben vielen praktischen Ratschlägen auch zahlreiche aktuelle Sortenempfehlungen.
Auflockernd streut er dabei die Naschtipps seiner Frau Ulli ein, die als Geheimtipps gewertet werden können. Der Garten endet bei Plobergers eben nicht vor der Küchentüre.
