    This is one of my favorite gardening books! Not only are the pictures beautiful and inspiring, but the information is realistic! So many gardening books are written for people with loamy acidic soil and mild to non-existent winters. This book is for those of us who love to garden and live in a more harsh environment. I especially love all of the lists - plants that bloom for more than a month, plants that attract butterflies and hummingbirds, roses for realists, plants that provide winter intere This is one of my favorite gardening books!

This is a fantastic resource for anyone gardening in the west.

    Any time you have a gardening failure because you tried to grow delphiniums in hot, humid Virginia, or otherwise find yourself fighting the site, turn to this book. Although her alkaline mountain environment is totally different from mine, her general advice is excellent. I particularly appreciated her constant suggestions for plant combinations. She suggests planting together those plants that bloom at the same time, so that you have bursts of color rather than blobs here and there.

I'm making a copy of her lists of roses and their companions and am eyeing some rugosas for their hardiness and beauty based on her recommendations.

    This is a rare treat in the world of gardening books. Lauren Springer's sense of irony and humor spill out in her writing. Most gardening books are full of things I would never try. This book was full of practical suggestions for plantings that might actually take hold. It is the only sane discussion of planting in dry shade that I have ever read.

    After listening to Lauren speak at The Chicago Botanic Garden I had to buy her book. She has taught me where and how to plant in different micro-climates. I enjoyed listening to her lecture and have referred often to her book when helping other people with their gardens.

    Excellent reference and inspiration book, particularly as the author works in a climate similar to mine, nearby in the Rocky Mountains.
