This is a perennial regular in the gift guide and this is a new edition for 2012. I still find it an excellent reference guide specifically designed for western gardeners, like myself. A big book and a useful one. Great for identifying and investigating the plants in your garden. Contains info on care, feeding and planting.
I have written about the Sunset Western Garden Book in the past and always consider it my go-to guide for gardening info. The great news is that there is now a new edition of the book available. My own copy is a bit old now, probably from around 1996, so it might just be time to upgrade. Of course, the danger is I will go “down the rabbit hole” and spend more time reading about gardening than doing it. (LAUGH)
