This is an excellent reference book for gardeners of all types and experiences. I pull my copy off the shelf several times a year - whether I'm trying to deteremine what pests are troubling my plants, or to figure out how deep to plant a new bush, or whether a particular plant or shrub is suitable for the climate I live in. In the winter this book is a life-line to warmer days helping me plan out a garden or new plantings I want to try. This is a keeper book for years to come.
