Like the true, gardening nerd I am, I pre-ordered the new "Sunset Western Garden Book" and I've been sleeping with it under my pillow, ever since it arrived on my door-step.
That may be a slight exaggeration, but it's true that this encyclopedia for the best plants for the western gardening zones is detailed, has over 2,000 color photos and is extensively researched.
Sunset Western Garden Book at Amazon $22.02
