    Almost more fun that actually gardening!

    I bought this book for my son's birthday, as he has inherited my need to be in the dirt. We spent an hour just looking at the gorgeous pictures and reading descriptions of favorite as well as mystery plants. An invaluable tool for California gardeners.

    Always a Joy to Read

    My "bible" for gardening. I've been buying this book for over 20 years now and am always excited to get the new edition. This is the first place I always turn to when I need info on a particular plant or what plant I need for certain situations.
