I found Denny Mc Keown's book covering gardening in Ohio very specific and helpful for an person buying new plants for specific spots in the garden. The book is organized into chapters by the types of plant, for example: annuals, bulbs, etc. There is a center section with photos of various trees, scrubs, perennials and others. Every plant I have wanted to know more about has been listed. His information is quite specific. It is a good manual for beginning gardeners who need to know what, where, when, how, and why to plant. Denny's chapter on resources includes: growing season data, mail-order seed sources, extension service information and a glossary. Things I did not have organized in one place under my finger tips. I have found the book very informative and helpful. It is more for the beinning gardener or the weekend weed-puller than the master gardener, who would already know most of these things. It is not an elegant book in style or graphics, but something you would want to keep in the potting shed beside the flower pots for quick reference when questions arise.

Reviewer: Sandee Coats-Haan from Cincinnati, OH
This is a great comprehensive gardening resource for any gardener, but especially those is Ohio. Written in the same chatty tone as McKeown's WKRC radio show, the book is highly readable. It includes a general information section as well as species by species care directions. As a new gardener, I feel that it explains things in highly understandable terms. It also focuses on enjoying your landscape, as opposed to spending your life working in it.
For the Ohioian Gardener this is a great resource tool, May 14, 2000
Reviewer: Gordon and Jessica Jensen from Dayton, Oh
I have read several gardening book on specific speices, such as annuals, perennials, etc. This book delivers information on all of these topics plus numerous others. The unique idea around this book is it tells you what is going to do well in Ohio. Giving good techniques on care from watering to fertiziling. Making good choices on the types of plants to choose and the other plants that compliment them in a surrounding landscape. There are 16 pages of color pictures of all the pants disscussed. Each plant is given great detail as to benefits, plant characteristics, nad how and where to plant. Denny McKeown has a great passion for gardening and it shows. I will use this book as a gardening resource tool.
