What a wonderful reference guide and companion. It is so nice to have a book that is well put together and offers advice on all things in the garden. From trees, to flowers, to shrubs and vegetables, they are all included in this book. Not sure how to prune your roses or when? This book will tell you. Not sure if a certain type of tree will do well in your area. This book will tell you. Afraid you will plant your tomatoes and they will freeze? This book with give you a comprehensive resource guide on when, how, why etc... of planting just about anything in your yard in Utah. I have never had such a great reference. I am so glad I got it, it will be used for generations to come!
