    Recommended for new gardeners

    This colorful and well-laid out book has a good "overview" for beginning gardeners, but isn't much use to experienced gardeners looking for in-depth specifics. I bought it for the fruit section, but, again, the details were just a broad wash of information. However, I did like that it gave specific varieties that work for Texas.
