Western Garden Book: The gardening bible for those west of the Rockies


This is a new edition of the Western Garden Book, one of the first books I bought when I started gardening forty years ago and I still use it. It is not ideological, promoting neither organic or chemical based gardening. It just has 8000 different plants, 500 of them new to read about and select from. It gives you the information on what plants to grow, how to nurture them, and where they do the very best. There is also updated information on the Western climate zones and thirty Plant Selection Guides, plus a Practical Guide to Gardening with basic advice on plant care and essential gardening techniques.

When I came to this old homestead, I knew nothing about gardening and this book helped me get a grasp on how to proceed. I'm still using it. For the new house I"m building I have about five acres totally leveled and waiting for some landscaping. This book is going to be invaluable to me in planning a landscape surrounding my living area which is beautiful to look at and easy to care for. Wouldn't think of starting without it.
