The others said it well and I just wanted to confirm that this is a great book to use as a yearly reminder and guide of what to do to maintain your garden and landscape. I think it should be included with every home purchase. It makes life and maintaining your garden much easier. Enjoy!
I thought this book was well though out. No color photos, but I have other books for that. I like the month-by-month aspect of it, but I wish it wasn't divided up into different plant types, I'd rather have all my monthly suggestions at once, instead of having to thumb through the different sections.
This is an especially good resource if you're a new gardener or a new-to-Texas gardener. (What transplanted Yankee would ever think of planting strawberries in October?!) It's divided into sections for lawn care, roses, veggies, annuals, perennials, and tree care, so it's very easy to find exactly the information you need. It does seem to be a little more oriented toward North Texas, so South and West Texans will need to adjust some planting dates accordingly.
It's a fairly no-frills publication, printed on inexpensive paper with minimal color and no photos, but the price reflects that. It's a welcome change from all those beautifully photographed garden books printed in England that just don't work in the Lonestar State.
