Wonderful book! I have completely worn it out and am thinking of buying the "new and updated" version. Not only does she give month by month things we should be doing in the garden, but has many tips and hints that are so helpful.
My only complaint is that I would LOVE to see more pictures!

As a beginning gardener in Southern California, I have consulted this book over and over again. It has month by month instructions and antectodes about just about everything we can plant here. It's also really enjoyable to read. Great book!

Being a new gardener, I took a friend and we sat in the book store looking at the wall of gardening books. After hunting for hours we found Pat's book. I can't say enough about this book. It has everything you need to know about when to do stuff, how to do it and why. Best book for a beginner like me.

This is such a wonderful book because it guides gardeners month by month with suggestions for what they *should* and *can* be doing in Southern California. My friend suggested this book- she is from France- because I was having a difficult time with Zonal Denial having been fortunate enough to garden-by-luck in New Mexico, Texas and North Wales. It covers everything I want my garden to have- some veggies, some fruit, some xeriscape and some of that great cottage garden! Some books you look at occasionally for inspiration- this one I consult regularly.
