Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

The subtitle tells it all. The editors of Sunset have constructed this book for amateur gardeners who are looking for creative recreation, not a professional career. Thus, all the projects, plants, and designs in this 288-page paperback are tailored to meet the schedules and needs of quick and easy Western gardeners. Western Garden Book describes several thousand plants that can be grown in twenty-four specific climates from Idaho, Utah, and Arizona to the Pacific coastline.

    Real disappointment

    First, let me say that this book is definitely up to the standards Sunset has shown in the past ... beautiful pictures and fun ideas. However, I expected more of "how to garden in 20 mins" .. I'm not as able as in the past to get everything done in my garden so I wanted a plan for getting it all done.
