How to Buy Plants, Tools & Garden Supplies: A Home Gardener's Guide

Perennials, Pruners, and Potting Soil: The Home Gardener's Guide to Buying Plants, Tools, and Garden Supplies - Jim Fox This is the best gardening book I've read this year. It is clearly written and concrete and contains all the information you need to know as a novice gardener. There are enough illustrations to clarify text, but not too many. Instead of browsing this book like you usually would a gardening book, I actually read it cover to cover. Many people recommended the Sunset Western Gardening book to me, but this was way more useful.
