Description

As surely as gardens change with the seasons, gardening is ever changing. New plants, techniques, materials, and
lifestyles are constantly broadening the choices you have and reshaping the way you garden in the West. In response to
this natural evolution, the editors of Sunset-the West's most trusted source of gardening information for more than 80
years-have completely redesigned and updated The Western Garden Book in this new 2012 Ninth Edition. Following the
best-selling success of the previous editions of The Western Garden Book, this edition includes a fresh new look,
thousands of color photographs, fresh illustrations, and an easy-to-follow format. Written by experts for gardeners in
the West, this book is an indispensable reference for beginning and expert gardeners alike.

The New Western Garden Book features include:
A photo gallery shows the West's most innovative gardens, from all-edibles front yards to stylish water-wise and
fire-wise gardens to living walls and green roofs-all with ideas you can use.
Climate Zone Maps and growing-season graphs for all regions of the West including Alaska and Hawaii.
A new "Plant Finder" section helps you choose plants for their garden's problem areas or for special effects.
"A to Z Plant Encyclopedia" lists some 8,000 plants that thrive in the West, including more than 500 new ones. Gorgeous
color photographs illustrate all plant entries-for the first time ever in The Western Garden Book.
"Gardening From Start to Finish" is a new visual guide that leads readers through all steps of making a garden, from
soil prep through planting, growing and care, with special sections on natives, veggies, grasses and more.
