5.0 von 5 Sternen This is it! 10. April 2008
Von Gang Chen
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This is it!

Most of the existing books on landscaping can be put into one of the three categories:

a. Coffee table books with pretty photos.
b. Encyclopedia of plants.
c. Horticulture books.

Only a few of the books on landscaping actually discuss design.

"Sunset Western Garden Book" is the best book for plant selection, a very important aspect of Planting Design. I have used it for many, many years. Every landscape architect that I know owns a copy of this book. Each new edition is getting better and better.

"Sunset Western Garden Book" is one of the best encyclopedia and is the "Bible" of Western Gardening. As the author of "Planting Design Illustrated," I would not hesitate to recommend this book to garden lovers.

I received the book, but it took longer than expected. I received the notice asking for feedback before the book actually arrived.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The One to Have 7. April 2002
Von booknblueslady - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
If you could only have one garden book and you live in the west, this is the one to choose. It is an absolutely indispensable tool for the novice and master gardener alike. Any question regarding a particular plant can usually be answered quickly and easily through this resource. As editor Kathleen N. Brenzel states in the dedication, "This book remains a no-nonsense garden guide for Westerners, built upon the rich legacy of previous editions." It is a guide designed purposely to bring gardening in the west into the new millennium .
One of my key questions before purchasing this book was if there were significant improvements over the 1995 which justified the expense of a new copy. That is a question which each individual should assess. The new 2001 edition has significant improvements over the 1995 edition. 2001 contains 768 pages as compared to the 624 of the 1995. The first section of this edition is "Gardening for the New Century" with a look to traditions of the past and ideas for the future.
The Sunset division of climate zones has always been meticulous and more precise than other zone guides. The West has so many micro-climates which are separated by short distances and differ by altitude, morning fog and delta breezes that it is important in choosing plants to know which are likely to survive in your zone. The big addition to the latest edition is that it is inclusive of Alaska, Hawaii and Western Canada. For gardeners who live in these areas, Sunset has now made their day.
The ever thoughtful Plant Selection Section has been reworked to include divisions for color, basic landscaping, special situation and problem solvers. The problem solver is particularly helpful including plants to use for dry areas, shade, seacoast and deer resistant plants.
The meat of the Garden Book has always been its encyclopedia and continues to be. When choosing a plant from a nursery this reference guide is critical. Editors took extra care to make this section even more attractive by including color illustrations of many of the plants. For each plant information included describes zones where they will thrive, exposure to sun, amount of water necessary and if the plant is poisonous.
The Practical Guide to Gardening section provides information on various gardening techniques, problems and pest. Information on weeds, gardening to attract wildlife and drip systems are included in this section.
The last two sections of the Western Garden Book are Public and Historic Gardens and the new Gardening Glossary which is quite helpful to the novice gardener.
The Western Garden Book continues to be an invaluable resource for gardeners of the west. Those who already have the 1995 edition but who feel the need to have all the latest in information and equipment should purchase this edition. Residents of Hawaii, Alaska and Western Canada should be thrilled with this edition. Anyone who is planning a new landscape would also be advised to have the most current version of The Western Garden Book.
Kudos yet again to Sunset for their excellent work.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Everything I was hoping Sunset would provide! 10. Februar 2001
Von Laurie - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
I have anticipated this newest edition of "Sunset" for several years, and find it to be all that I have hoped it COULD be. As a nurseryperson fully aware of all the newer cultivars being made readily available to the public, I am very pleased to see that Sunset has obviously consulted with growers and distributors in order to provide information on many new genus and species available to the consumer. This newest edition contains a beautifully done introduction which defines gardening IN TANDEM with Nature in very inspiring form, complete with tantalizing photographs. The Plant Encyclodpedia now includes color in its renderings of plants, in addition to listing many "new" cultivars and charts for plant families with many cultivars. The special Guide to Plant Selection has been re-done beautifully with valuable enhancements to the previous edition. The re-worked Practical Guide to Gardening at the back has been done in a very comprehensive manner, providing many wonderful charts and graphics which "teach" effectively. No matter how many previous editions of Sunset you might own, adding this Millenium edition is well worth the investment. With this newest edition, it seems Sunset has finally caught up with the gardening times!

1.0 von 5 Sternen Don't give up your old edition 21. März 2009
Von Martin Mcintyre - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
If you have an old 2001 edition of this book do not give it up for a new one. For most gardeners the 2007 edition has a fatal flaw. Perhaps there is some other reason but I can only chalk up to horticultural elitism. Sunset decided it would be good to completely drop the plant index cross referencing common to botanical names. While this may have saved a few pages of print, it is a great injustice to an otherwise excellent reference book. Want to look up columbine, sunflower, foxglove? Forget it.

I have been gardening for 30 years and have numerous friends who visit my garden to enjoy its richness. Knowing the taxonomical nomenclature of my native columbine does not contribute to successful cultivation nor to its beauty. It will however allow you to look the plant up in the new, unimproved Western Garden book issue.

What were the Sunset editors thinking.....that they were going to force we gardeners into botanical literacy? No thanks, at 60, I would rather be gardening. If you still have a 2001 edition, keep the old beautiful dog eared copy. Do not waste your money on the 2007 edition which

5.0 von 5 Sternen DON'T BUY IF YOU HAVE THE 7th ED. 8. Februar 2007
Von S. Burton - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
This is a "best buy" for any western gardener. However if you have the previous edition, the changes are so minor (different photos, rewrites that are paraphases, little new material) that your money is better spent on another book. If you own an older copy without color illustrations, pass it on to a new gardener and treat yourself to the 8th edition!

3.0 von 5 Sternen Sunset Western Garden Book 10. Juli 2007
Von L. West - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
I've found that this latest edition is more difficult to use than earlier editions. The index is much shorter than earlier editions & the common names of many of the plants are not listed. Once you get used to the format in this edition it's still very useful. The photos & descriptions are always beautiful & very helpful. Plant diseases & pests are also organized in a different manner, but not in a good way--same problems as the index of plant names.
