More About Liz Ball & Cool Springs Press
Liz Ball is a horticultural writer, photographer, researcher, and teacher whose articles and photographs have appeared in numerous catalogs, magazines, and books. Ball wrote regularly for the National Garden Bureau and Burpee's websites. Her weekly Yardening column appeared in her local newspaper for more than fourteen years. Ball has authored or co-authored a multitude of books, including the Pennsylvania Gardener's Guide (also for Cool Springs Press).She writes on a large number of topics for gardeners but specializes in addressing issues that concern non-gardening homeowners who have lawns and plants to care for but a limited amount of time or interest of working in the yard (whom she calls "yardeners.") After decades spent teaching writing, literature, and history at the secondary school level, Ball devoted herself to horticulture. She has taught courses on gardening for local community adult and arboretum programs, as well as for various universities. Ball is a frequent lecturer, speaking often to garden clubs, hort societies, civic groups and to the public. In her spare time, Ball concentrates on a two-acre yard that serves as her informal laboratory and demonstration garden for all her "experiments."

Excellent reference Sep 6, 2007
I like this book so much I have given it as a gift to several gardening friends. The pictures and descriptions are very useful and pertinent to my location in Pennsylvania. Ideal for quick reference and just idle reading.
Outstanding Quide! Mar 7, 2004
Very easy to use reference on PA gardening. Not only includes information on plants that do well in the state, but planting and care instructions. Extensive list of PA gardens to visit will keep you busy for years to come. Detailed zone chart for the state is provided. I would recommended this for the beginner as well as experienced gardener.
