We used to live on the west coast, and the Sunset Magazine Western
Garden Book was the gardening bible of every good gardener I knew.
Anyone know of an east coast/northeast oriented equivalent?
For those not familiar with it, it is a very thick, full color
encyclopedic manual with lots of full color pictures of plant, tree, and
shrub varieties. It also contains tips for garden design, techniques,
etc. While some of the information is obviously transferable to our new
location, the book does have a definite slant towards the conditions and
varieties of plants one encounters in a west coast garden.
As the bit I know about gardening I learned on the west coast, I'd
appreciate a book of this magnitude to help me choose plants and design
the gardens at our new home.
Thanks for any ideas,
