Later this month, I'm going to write a review of this book, but I didn't want to wait to let you know that it is out: Best Garden Plants for Oklahoma by Steve Owens and Laura Peters, 2007,
Lone Pine Publishing International, softcover, $16.95. (Available on Amazon.com and Walmart.com and other online sellers for $11).
Steve Owens, of course, is the host of our own Oklahoma Gardening on tv every week. Laura Peters is the author of 24 gardening books.
The book has the look and feel of a field guide: Easy to use as a reference for planting as well as plant identification.
