Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This program teaches gardeners how to recognize the possibilities of a location, and then create a garden that is in tune with the environment. A coding system, assigned to each plant, uses hardiness and heat zones, sun/shade, water needs, and plant size to help determine the perfect plants for any site.

Book News Annotation:

"American Horticultural Society" appears at the head of the title, but the participation of that organization is not specified. This guide contains brief discussions of garden basics and a well-illustrated catalog covering more than 3,000 trees, shrubs, conifers, climbers and herbaceous plants appropriate for use in the northwestern states of the US. Part one outlines tenets for successful gardening, including working with nature (e.g., composting, conserving water, and creating habitats); managing pests using IPM (integrated pest management); and consulting pros via books, the Internet, and local resources such as the Master Gardener program. The plant catalog is arranged according to type of plant and microclimate and includes brief descriptions and codes for hardiness and heat zones, sun/shade, water needs, and plant height and width. The third section discusses techniques for selecting plants, planting, pruning, and propagation.
