I bought my first house in October 05 and I wanted beautiful spring and summer flowers. The property had roses and several other perennials. I needed a book that would help this beginner know what to do with what was already there as well as help me add new plants and flowers. I reviewed 25 gardening books from my library network last spring. This was by far my favorite. It gives you all the things you should know for lots of different flowers and plants and lets you know things you should be doing each month...like plant, prune, fertilize, etc. There are two versions of this book the original and this revised version. The revised costs a little more but there are color pictures in this edition as well as a much better layout in general. To me the newer edition was worth every extra penny and is the only one that I actually purchased out of all the books I reviewed. A must have for any Ohio gardener.
It's nice to have a book that speaks directly to the gardening conditions for your back yard. Denny McKeown has many years of landscape, nursery and gardening experience in Cincinnati, and this book provides plenty of hints, techniques and recommendations for the Ohio gardener.Here are the only recommendations that I have for improving the next versions:- Include the month-by-month recommendations and information for all types of plants in sections organized by month. For example, January would include all of the content for annuals, perennials, lawns, bulbs, etc. The way the book is currently organized, you must choose a type of plant first, then look at the monthly information.- Include calendar pages that summarize the highlights for each month. This would serve as a quick reference about when to plant, fertilize, prune, etc.This is an excellent book for your gardening library.
Although we've been in our house over 5 years now we have never really tackled lawn care or gardening. Sure, we've weeded and trimmed but nothing more. I like this book because it tells you what to do each month for the different types of plants you might have as well as your lawn specifically for Ohio climates. As a brand new gardener I have found this info priceless!
A very thorough and well organized guide. It not only tells you what to do but helps you frame the questions you should be asking. Highly recommended.
Best book ever to beautify your yard, lawn & garden in Ohio. Gives advice from real experience that definitely works. It's my go-to guide. Love it!
