1.0 von 5 Sternen Why You Shouldn't Buy This Book 13. April 2012
Von Kate Smart - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I wanted to purchase a good gardening encyclopedia, so I took a few out of the library to see which ones might be worth purchasing. This one is not a keeper. Trying to find a specific plant or tree is practically impossible - for instance, you look up "crape myrtle" in the index. It says, "see lagerstroemia." Under the "L" heading, there is no "lagerstroemia." The index, therefore, is only to give you the latin names of a given plant. To find where they are in the book, you refer to a different index. Under "malus" (apple tree) rather than have them all in one place, they are spread throughout the book according to size. The problem with this is, the designations are completely inaccurate. A "Marshall Oyama" apple tree grows upwards of 30 feet - this is not a small tree. The parameters in which a tree grows are highly relative according to geography, position, etc. The back and forth flipping around made this book a non-keeper, in my opinion.

I could go on and on, but suffice it to say, this was the worst encylopedia I came across; it was annoying, frustrating, and extremely limited both in its variety of species, as well as the amount of information that is given, which is paltry at best. I therefore highly recommend "Dirr's Encyclopedia of Trees and Shrubs." This is the one I am going to purchase - it is so thorough, it is almost exhausting to read and the author (Michael Dirr) gives his personal opinions on many of the plants featured which is incredibly useful. He features plants I have never heard of, as well as a multitude of plant varieties that is almost astonishing.
There are so many sub-species of any given tree, shrub, or plant, that it is just not enough to devote one or two sentences to the entire genus. This book would be, in my opinion, a complete waste of money because you would have to supplement it with a great deal of extra reading. A good encyclopedia should stand on its own.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Perfect for a Novice 14. Juni 2012
Von Shamino Wang - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
As a first-time homeowner and a complete beginner at yard care, I was at a loss looking at all the 30 or so plants I inherited. Most typical gardening books assume the reader would have at least some basic knowledge of what common plants' names are, while I could not even tell Lavender from Salvia (they both looked purple to me). I had been asking my neighbors, friends, and my gardener about them, until I came across this book.

Plants are grouped under several major categories, like Trees, Shrubs, Perennials, Annuals, etc. What's really helpful is, in each section, plants are listed first by Size (Large, Medium, and Small), then in the order of Seasons (Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter/All Year), followed by Color sequences. For example, for looking up Trees, first ones are Large Spring (White, Pink, Red,...) then Large Summer (White, Pink, Red,...), and so on. It was a lifesaver for an ignorant idiot like me, as I simply brought the book in my yards, and flipped the pages until I found a match to the picture, then moved on to the next plant. Doing it this way I was able to identify the majority of my plants.

Sure, I agree with the first reviewer that the two-step indexing (first from common names to Latin names, then the actual plant index by Latin names) is cumbersome. But again, since I didn't even know the common names (Lily-of-the-Nile, Crimson Bottlebrush, etc), I didn't use the book that way and was not bothered by it.

As for picture quality, I found them clear and excellent. Most of them focus on the single most important identifying trait (close-up of the flower, the leaf appearance, or the far distance capture of the overall shrub shape...). Of course there are a few exceptions that still left me confused after seeing the photos, but the pictures are bigger and more plentiful than those in other books, such as the highly praised Sunset Western Garden Book.

In summary, I'm happy I found this book, which I'm calling "A Beginner's First Book". It does what an encyclopedia should do. Yes, it's lacking detailed care instructions like those in the Sunset Western Garden Book, but that's not what it was meant to be. It seems for Master Gardeners, this book is too basic and does not offer any new info that they don't know already. But if you are just starting out like me, hopefully this book can be helpful to you.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Just what a gardner needs 13. Juni 2012

My wife is a Master Gardner in the state of North Carolina, and is also a landscape designer. She is always on the look out for reference material to help her with her designs.

This truly is an encylopedia! A huge book with great pictures and information. This is a great addition to her library, and would be great for any gardner

4.0 von 5 Sternen A beautiful read 8. September 2013

Some books just ain't meant to be bought electronically, and this is one. It's a decent research text, but it's also lovely and a joy to poke through on a rainy day. It'll earn a place of honor on your coffee table.

This book is beautifully designed, illustrated, photographed and probably has almost every plant in it.... well, close enough.
Lots of important information contained in it. I bought it to just have it handy.
