We weren’t lucky enough to have a gardener like Tova living next door….but you can get all her gardening knowledge for this climate in your hands. In my role as garden writer for the Sacramento Bee’s “California Life” magazine, I see dozens of new gardening books during the course of a year. I can think of none that are more straightforward, encouraging and easy to understand than this.” Dick Tracy, Sacramento Bee
This book is your constant reference on perennial gardening in challenging climates. Whether you are a new gardener or have gardened for years, you’ll learn all kinds of new tips and information. You’ll refer to this manual again and again.
Like Perennials? You’ll love this book! By “mccalis” Tova’s book is a MUST have for the anyone who wants to grow perennials. It shows you how to take advantage of microclimates in your garden so you can grow plants that are listed out of your USDA or Sunset zone. Then the gardener, from the beginner to the most ambitious, can experiment with a wider variety of plants.
I also like the straight-forward way the book is written. Find the season you want, the plants are listed in alphabetical order by season of bloom with a list of the plant’s essential needs. This way you don’t need to read 10 paragraphs about the plant to find how much sunlight it requires. The pictures are also not only accurate but artistic.$20.00 includes shipping
