Remarkably complete. With complete instructions for growing and tending approximately 300 plants, plus 365 illistrations, and easy to read diagrams. Lots of pictures. Each chapter is a book in itself. You will find, planning your property,what plants need, garden gear, how to buy plants, annuals and preennials, vegetables herbs fruits bulbs roses, and lawns and ground coverings. Vines, shrubs, trees, wildflowers, houseplants, and lots more. Very recommended book for the old-fashioned dirt gardner, or someone who wants to plant indoors.
