I borrowed this book from the library and planned to take a few notes. It was so helpful in many ways that I decided to buy the book to highlight and make notes in the book because there was just too much in it. I am implementing many suggestions this year but will spend the winter re-reading it to plan for next summer. I am not a novice gardener but am new to Michigan
I also checked this book out from the library. The writing and content is so charming and comprehensive I decided that I needed it. While it does have a lot of content just for Michigan, I would say that it'd be a good book for any gardener.
I am totally amazed by the quality of the book.
I was disappointed in this book because there are very few photos or illustrations, and those that appear are not in color. Also, I assumed the book was solely about floral gardens (because of the lovely cover) but it actually covers lawn care, fruit trees, vegetable and indoor gardens, etc.; not that much is devoted to flowering annuals/perennials. (My fault: I should have previewed the table of contents). The section on insect control is probably the best part of the book. Although other readers might be very pleased with the book and all the general info it contains, I would not have purchased this book if I had seen it beforehand.
