Synopses & Reviews

From Powells.com:

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.

Publisher Comments:

Introducing the 7th edition of Sunset's Western Garden Book for 2001. Perhaps the most referenced gardening guide in the United States, Western Garden Book is written for all gardeners, from novice to expert. It is packed with plant descriptions and gardening information — all from Sunset, the authority on Western gardening for more than 60 years. The 2001 edition is a welcome addition or update for every gardener's bookshelf!

Book News Annotation:

Resources include a list of North American public and historic gardens, a guide to demystifying botanical names, a pronunciation key, and a glossary. Lacks references.
