As someone who came from a completely differently climate, and as a person who loves gardening, I’ve been at sixes and sevens these last few months about what to do here on our larger plot. Various gardening books I had, or bought, were okay in some respects but usually oriented toward other areas or were too generalized to be of much help here,
Finally I found this book, and it’s just the ticket. If you or anyone you know happens to live in Oregon, Washington or costal British Columbia, this is the book to read. I say read, because it’s written in a very readable way, with a touch of gardeners humor and a great deal of insight into the needs and uses of plants in our area. Highly recommended.
