Myers, Melinda. Gardening in Iowa. Franklin, TN: Cool Springs Press, 2007. Print.
Reviewed by Jess d'Artagnan Love
The language is simple and Myers does a great job of breaking down scientific information into language that is accessible for a broad audience. She also provides an extensive appendix including names and addresses of Iowa organizations and extension offices that Iowa gardeners can reach out to for further help if needed.
If you are a novice gardener, I recommend picking up a copy of this book.
Would I read it again?
Yes, this is staying on bookshelf and I will refer to it throughout the year as I continue to grown my own gardening skills.
Beginning gardeners in Iowa or in locations of a similar zone and soil type as Iowa.
Not Recommended for
Experienced gardeners looking for a deep dive of information on specific plant species or garden types.
4 stars out of 5
