Particularly well-written are: 1. The sections on landscaping and how to grade slopes for correct drainage. 2. How to provide proper drainage and air circulation when planting trees on a grade. 3. The discussion on lawn grass diseases and their control. 4. The very detailed overview of ground covers, shrubs, vines, and trees. 5. The proper method to prune trees and shrubs.6. A long listing of perennials and the proper methods for care. 7. The entire section on roses. Being a rose fanatic, I paid particular attention to the discussion. For winter care, the book recommmends covering at locations where temperatures fall below 20 degrees F. Some rose experts recommend against this, except for climbers. A brief discussion of rose pests and diseases is given. For rose lovers of the Midwest, who face severe humidity, not enough attention is paid to black spot. It would have been helpful to have specific recommendations on the best commercial applicant to use.
This is a fascinating time to be involved in horticulture with the advent of genetic engineering. Techniques from genetic engineering will allow more robust varieties of trees and plants, with resistance to many of the diseases and pests discussed in the book. Gardening will indeed become even more exciting in the 21st century......
