Thanks Susanne for a very informative article. It doesn't seem to matter where the book is directed, I am sure valuable info will be found. I say that because sometimes my garden overtakes my house, my street, my neighborhood...little things like that indicate that plants grow well here, and they do. I just happen to like garden books, and even from those that are not written for my climate, I learn a lot. And then I have zone envy...wanting my annuals and house plants to become perennials...or pleading with my Himalayan poppies to please bloom...sigh.
