“This book encourages large, lush garden beds after determining soil types, moisture conditions, sunlight and shade, wind direction, and existing vegetation and structures. . . . The maintenance needs and planting and maintenance schedule sections that follow offer guidance not often found in gardening literature. . . . This third revised edition is worthy of purchase for its 50 new plants, including some native species important to pollinators and for human enjoyment.” —Booklist
