Garden writer Kerry Ann Mendez provides valuable information in this work, based on her experiences growing perennials and serving as a garden consultant in the northeastern United States. In the introduction, she reminds the reader of the importance of evaluating the specific environment for plantings before their selection. She then reviews her favorite plants for various purposes, sites, flower, and foliage. The reader will appreciate her special tips on garden design and care, as well as strategies for dealing with garden pests. On the practical side, there is a listing of useful money-saving gardening suggestions, which include buying from mail-order companies.— Marilyn K. Alaimo, garden writer and volunteer, Chicago Botanic Garden.

Kerry Ann Mendez is a creative horticultural educator who has taken a fresh approach to writing a gardening book. The how-to has been broken down into 70 essential topics, each with its own dedicated list of top ten ideas to guide the gardener to success. Many of the topics are particular to specific gardening challenges, so that readers may hone in only on those issues that are relevant to their own gardening environment… Novices are sometimes overwhelmed by the wealth of horticultural information that they think they need in order to get started. Not anymore! This book encapsulates all of that knowledge, summarizes the essentials and removes the stress of the unknown. Owning this book is the next best thing to hiring a garden coach.
