I love shade gardens. Everyone who has the room should try and develop this peaceful section of their world. I found this book not only very informative about information I wanted to have on hand but it is attractive enough to keep out on the coffee table. I really enjoy going back to it over and over.LD
I took the NC Master Gardeners Class. Wanted the book to help with questions received. Recommended it to my classmates. Book was in good shape and arrived in good time.
