Sunset Western Garden Book 7TH Edition


Sunset Western Garden Book 7TH Edition Cover


Synopses & Reviews


The sun is (here and there) peeking out from behind the clouds, the daffodils are bursting out of the hard winter earth, and the days are getting noticeably longer: spring is just around the corner. Which makes this a perfect time for picking up the 'Bible' for green thumbs in the western states. For over 100 years, Sunset has been renowned for its no-nonsense gardening tips, easy to follow diagrams and encyclopedic knowledge of plant varieties. Its garden books are essential texts for anyone who wants advice on what plants to grow and how and where to grow them. The 40th-anniversary edition of the Western Garden Book marks the first major revision of this marvelous text. Glossy color photos accompany guides and maps of the West's 24 climate zones, visual guides to plant diseases, gardening techniques, and an excellent resource directory. All this in addition to more than 6,000 plant listings. Sunset aims to demystify the art of gardening, giving every reader clear and comprehensive advice on how to create and maintain a wonderful garden in almost any climate zone in the western states.
