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 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.
