This book is most informative and educational for garden plants in Oklahoma. It gave me the best ideas for placement in the garden of which I knew nothing before. I think it is a must. Thanks Steve
Gave me a lot of ideas. I've only been in Ok. a few years (from Florida). I Especially liked learning which plants will do well where in Oklahoma. Good photos.
This book is one of the few with pictures; although wished some were bigger. Has lots of information about what will grow good where and the information is organized pretty good and easy to locate a particular plant if you are looking for informatino about something specific. If you are going to get this book you might also want to look at the OK Gardening book by Steve Dobbs.
As a person not familiar with garden plants in the far western panhandle of Oklahoma I was hoping this book would help me. We have severe winters that can be below -10F and not much precipitation. Some snow and sleet. Very windy.Very hot summers ,many times over 100F. Many of the plants are not like the plants growing in far Eastern Oklahoma.I concur with the another reviewer much better zone growing hardiness information needed. I couldn't find what zone I live in. I assume its the worst zone for growing garden plants and the hardiest plants will be needed that take the lest rain. A tiny map on each page with the growing zones would of been perfect.The book has lot of beautiful pictures of many different kinds of garden plants. More than enough for you to have a beautiful garden in the other areas of Oklahoma. Steve Owens and Laura Peters did a great job explaining the different plants, the size they eventually will be, height, how much sun needed and when and how to plant them and how much maintenance is needed except the zone information. Looks like not too much on plants in the Panhandle.I'm not sure about what can survive in the rugged Western Panhandle.For us in the far west Panhandle I feel kind of left out in this book. I'll buy a zone chart to add to this book and take it to the few garden shops local to us to see if I can find local plants cross referencing this book.Recommend this book if you live in Oklahoma outside of the Panhandle and are willing to buy an inexpensive numbered zone chart from 1 to 9. 3 stars
Great resource guide for local and area gardening. Excellent color pictures make for easy identification. Canvas-like coated cover makes for easy wipe off.
The book has good photos and descriptions for each plant but it needs better zoning information. There is a chart in the front for zone hardiness by temperature, but the plant descriptions use numbers and there is no reference to the number system used. This book does claim to be for beginners. Having just moved to OK and being unfamiliar with the zones this would be very helpful.Oklahoma Gardeners Guide by Steve Dobbs is a great book!
