I'm a Master Gardener in Snohomish County, Washington, so reference books like this are very valuable to me, especially in clinics when clients want answers!

I'm a Master Gardener in Snohomish County, Washington, so reference books like this are very
valuable to me, especially in clinics when clients want answers! The pictures are excellent and
large enough to make comparison to actual plants. I would have given the book 5 stars except more pictures showing foliage as well as the flowers would be very helpful.

A handy reference book to have on hand. Would have liked more weeds included but I take this to Master Gardener functions and it has been very helpful.

If you garden, and you live where there is wind this book is a must to figure out just what is coming up in your garden. The pictures are clear, and the descriptions help you know just what you are having to do.
