An easy to use reference book which tells the Illinois gardner what to plant, where to plant, and when to prune. It's a very useful handbook for novice and not-so-novice midwest gardners.
This is a handy reference for Illinois gardeners with quite a bit of inside info - what will really grow here and what won't -and I often refer to it. The information on specific varieties could be a little more meaty but overall this is well worth the price. I bought a copy of the first edition of this book and it wasn't very good. If you did also you should give Fizzell a second chance - this revised edition is much better.
very usefull guide to local gardening.chapters for annuals,bulbs,perennials,shrubs and more.i find i refer to it often for care and maintenance as well as new ideas for plants to try.it's well written and easy to read.it's great for first timers and the experienced.
Informative and easy to use. Purchased a copy for ourselves after checking it out from the library a few times. Great help in getting our pollinator garden set up. We also used it to help us pick planting that would date with our house (built in the 1850's).
Nice book, handy to have info pertaining to my geographical area. I find it easier to think about several choices for the garden when I can flip between parts of a book, rather than changing website windows. Great reference book for garden lovers.
I'm learning to farm and I was told this would be a great book. Received as a gift from my Wishlist and I can't wait to start reading it. I'm also looking forward to getting these books as well: Guide to Illinois Vegetable Gardening (Vegetable Gardening Guides) and The Veggie Gardener's Answer Book: Solutions to Every Problem You'll Ever Face; Answers to Every Question You'll Ever Ask (Answer Book (Storey))
This is a must-have book for Illinois Gardeners. If you have the budget to buy only one book, you should buy this. I am still waiting for the companion book "Month-By-Month Gardening"; as it is out of stock at .
