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.
