Editorial Reviews

Review

“The book has an engaging personal tone. . . an excellent overview for newer gardeners, or those new to our climate. . . “
(Seattle Post-Intelligencer)

“If you’re thinking of adding some new plants to your garden, get this book before winter sets in and you’ll have lots to contemplate before the spring planting season.”
(Victoria Times)

“Written by a couple who live and garden on Denman Island, this is a superb manual on all aspects of gardening for both novice and veteran gardeners.”

(Albany Democrat-Herald)

“The authors, a couple who live and garden on Denman Island in British Columbia, clearly explain the unique challenges and joys of gardening in this large and unique region….This is a fun, thought-provoking book for gardeners to peruse over the coming winter months.”

I ordered this book after getting it at the Library. I had to have it! The book is so complete and informative that it replaced many of my gardening reference books. I don't think I would buy a shrub or tree without consulting my new Best gardening book.

I'm new to the Pacific Northwest and bought a house with a large and beautiful garden. I was a gardener in the Southwest but I've been stymied on what my plants are and how to manage them. This book is awesome. I learned so much about maintaining my garden for this very special environment. It also gave me great ideas about what plants to replace some that didn't make the "transition." I believed that the Northwest was a wet environment, yes it can be wet, but I was amazed to find out about needing plants/grasses that are drought tolerant. Also, the comparison to the NW climate to the Mediterranian climate and shared plants was intreging. I bought this book for Kindle but threw it up to my ipad when I saw all the color photos. Great viewing material.

I'm in the process of moving from the desert to the pacific northwest. This book helped me understand what to expect and how to plan my new garden in a completely different climate. The tone is casual but informative and clear. The remarks about the weather were obviously written by someone who truly loves and appreciates the region but has a sense of humor when it comes to some of the quirks of the weather. I would recommend this book to newcomers such as myself, and I can also see myself using it as a useful reference for years to come. Excellent resource for general information as well as for plant portraits.

This is an excellent book that clearly explains the unique issues faced by Pacific Nortwest gardeners. However, buy it in paperback - pictures in the Kindle version are very low resolution. Not good for pictures of plants and flowers, and a serious issue for the highly detailed maps that are one of the primary reasons for reading this book. On Kindle, I can't tell which growing zone my garden lies in. (Hopefully I can find the book at a bookstore and take a peek at the maps.)

I bought this book some time ago and find I have used it often to check for plants and growing conditions for my flower as well as vegetable garden.
