    1. There just isn't anything to dislike about this book or it's author.The book contains a vast spectrum of useful information for the novice & veteran gardener alike.

    2. Perennials For Every Purpose: Choosing the Right Plants For Your Conditions, Your Garden, and Your Taste by Larry Hodgson (Rodale 2000)(635.932). This is my favorite old book about perennial gardening. This is the one that captured my interest and started me on the course of my fondest past time. It's a grand introduction to organic gardening in the most painless way possible. My rating: 9.5/10, finished 2002.

    3. In this valuable book the information about plants is thorough. An entry will tell you the benefits of a flower as well as the drawbacks. There are suggestions about where to locate the flower and what to plant with it. Most importantly for me, a Minnesota gardener, this book does not ignore the north.

    4. Very good book. I like his philosophy about telling honestly about plants. It's flaws and stars. Easy to pick what kind flowers will suit my garden and me.

    5. Being a newbie in gardening, I really enjoyed this book! I've learned a lot of useful information and I am looking forward to start gardening!
