    The Best of the bunch for Arizona gardeners

    After checking out numerous Arizona gardening books at my local library, I found myself always going to this one. Then I had to return the books, and decided that I couldn't live without this particular one. So I bought it and am still finding it an invaluable guide. The chapter on cacti & succulents doesn't include some of the varieties I have in my yard, which is my only complaint. But the book is well organized and chapters are color coded. Everything you need to know is covered-- including how to prepare certain plants for an expected frost. I just have one gardening book, and this is it!
