An invaluable, indispensable part of every Wisconsin home gardener's personal reference shelf.  May 7, 2008
As the title states, "The Garden Book For Wisconsin " is specifically designed for gardeners in the Badger State and offers 191 plant selections ranging from Annuals and Perennials, to Groundcovers and Ornamental Grasses. Now in a newly expanded and updated second edition, each plant in "The Garden Book For Wisconsin" is showcased with a color photograph enhancing an especially 'user friendly' text which provides a wealth of specific and practical advice on planting, growing, and care. Of special note is the use of quick reference symbols indicating a specific plant's sun requirements and such background information as to additional qualities such as attracting birds or butterflies. Wisconsin gardening expert Melinda Myers draws upon her many years of dedicated experience to include personal recommendations of plants that are especially suited to Wisconsin's climate, and includes useful information on companion planting, along with design tips for maximize the use of texture and color in a Wisconsin garden. Simply stated, "The Garden Book For Wisconsin" should be considered a seminal addition to the University of Wisconsin Agricultural Studies reading lists, community library Wisconsin Gardening & Horticulture collections, and an invaluable, indispensable part of every Wisconsin home gardener's personal reference shelf.
 
Excellent book by one of Wisconsin's garden experts!  Sep 11, 2007
This book met all of my expectations. I recommend it to any Wisconsinite who enjoys backyard gardening.
 
Good resource  Sep 10, 2001
This is one of the books that I refer to often when deciding what to plant in our yard.

Descriptions of the plant, whether it's a native species, and recommendations for certain varieties to look for, are very useful.

Is it a single resource that answers all of your questions? No. But no one book could be, and that's why you choose a few valuable books to provide a range of information.

If you live in Wisconsin, this book should be in your reference collection.

 
Excellent Garden Book for Wisconsin  Dec 25, 1999
The book contains 445 pages, about 30 pages are on general gardening and 30 pages are specific to Wisconsin. Specific information includes a full page color USDA Hardiness Map of Wisconsin with detail showing county borders, Wisconsin frost maps, monthly temperature & precipation data for 27 Wisconsin cities, lists of Wisconsin gardens and societies, and more.

The remaining 385 pages are about selected species. And these pages contain some of the best information that I have ever read in a garden book. If you buy it just for these pages, you will have an excellent reference book no matter where you live.

The species info covers 26 annuals, 15 bulbs, 17 ground covers, 10 ornamental grasses, 28 perennials, 6 roses, 25 shrubs, 30 trees, 3 turf grasses, and 9 vines, with 160 small photos. The info is perfectly arranged with two pages of text per each species. Each contain a paragraph on when to plant, where to plant, how to plant, care, additional info, and other varieties. My kind of book - all the info in one place and easy to find.

If you garden in Wisconsin, this is a must have book!

Unlike all my other garden books, I actual know of every species talked about in this book. The book talks about the plants we grow in Wisconsin. And best, Myers tells us about some popular plants that don't do well here (I wish the plant nursery would have told me this before they sold me many wrong varieties). I learned this by trial and error.

My only criticism about the book is that I wish she had written another volume. Great information!
