My Dad had this book and when I grew up I borrowed it so much that I finally realized I needed to buy myself one. I still look things up in it all the time. It is my second favorite right after the Sunset Western Garden Book.
This was my grandmothers "bible" now passed on to me - I use it even if all the moden types are not there so much helpful infomation I could not find anywhere else is in there that I cannot live without it now that i have gotten used to it. Would love them to put out a new one.
This book is a great reference book and has a place in any garden shed or on any night stand! I found the information in it to be timeless and helpful regardless of it's age. Just don't fall asleep reading it, it's pretty heavy!
One of my most referenced garden books. Had it for almost fifty years now. Taped together and showing its age and use, but still one of those I have referred too the most for myself as well as in the course of providing gardening advice as a master gardener in three States.
May be a little out of date. Just practical and down to earth. I guess Iím just old fashioned and tired of the glossy dittos that have become so common and take up more space than they are worth.
