From the Publisher;

As surely as gardens change with the seasons, gardening is ever changing. New
plants, techniques, materials, and lifestyles are constantly broadening the
choices you have and reshaping the way you garden in the West. In response to
this natural evolution, the editors of Sunset-the West's most trusted
source of gardening information for more than 80 years-have completely
redesigned and updated The Western Garden Book in this new 2012 Ninth
Edition. Following the best-selling success of the previous editions of The
Western Garden Book
, this edition includes a fresh new look, thousands of
color photographs, fresh illustrations, and an easy-to-follow format. Written by
experts for gardeners in the West, this book is an indispensable reference for
beginning and expert gardeners alike.

The New Western Garden Book features include:

  • A photo gallery shows the West's most innovative gardens, from
    all-edibles front yards to stylish water-wise and fire-wise gardens to
    living walls and green roofs-all with ideas you can use.

  • Climate Zone Maps and growing-season graphs for all regions of the West
    including Alaska and Hawaii.

  • A new "Plant Finder" section helps you choose plants for their garden's
    problem areas or for special effects.

  • "A to Z Plant Encyclopedia" lists some 8,000 plants that thrive in the
    West, including more than 500 new ones.

  • Gorgeous color photographs illustrate all plant entries-for the first
    time ever in The Western Garden Book.

  • "Gardening From Start to Finish" is a new visual guide that leads
    readers through all steps of making a garden, from soil prep through
    planting, growing and care, with special sections on natives, veggies,
    grasses and more.
