If I could only keep 2 gardening books, this would be one of them. Lots of great information particularly on what plants to deadhead to get more blooms.

It has some good advice. So much of the information she imparts is for the mid-west. Our climate is much different. I prefer Sunset Western Garden Book and others that are suited for the pacific northwest garden.
