Review quotes

“A LANDSCAPER'S ENCYCLOPEDIA.  Here's the big, thick book on everything you want to know about trees and shrubs.”

St. Petersburg Times

 

“Most gardeners are practical people who need a lot of information on a lot of issues.  That’s why I really like this down-to-earth 416-page rundown on the ambitious topic of trees and shrubs.”

Harrisburg Patriot-News

 

“The real jewel of this volume is the extensive A-Z directory of nearly 350 trees and shrubs, many offering more than on season of interest.  There is even a handy pronunciation guide for every plant name.”

Library Journal

 

“This book looks great, a true encyclopedia on trees and shrubs and how to select and care for them.”

The Journal-News

 

“…an all-inclusive guide to choosing, planting, and caring for these wonderful woody plants.”

The Journal Inquirer (Manchester, Conn.)

 

“This handbook is a source of inspiration and seasoned advice for making sound choices from the start and maintaining your plants as they develop and grow.”

Lexington Herald-Leader

 

“One problem with garden books that try to say too much about everything is that they often end up saying too little about anything. Happily, this is not the case with The Homeowner’s Complete Tree & Shrub Handbook by garden designer and author Penelope O’Sullivan.”

The American Gardener
