Last time I checked New York state was a pretty large state and had a very diverse area for plants. Not according to this book. No effort is put into so many areas. Deer is a HUGE problem for gardening in New York but nothing is mentioned about deer at all. No help with how to prune, very little with upkeep for plants. No help with what works well together for soil and fertilizing. No help with what other animals to watch for. No nice little chart that most gardening books have that show you at a quick glance what you need to know. Like what plants are native. No information on that either. You might as well just go to Lowe's and buy what you like instead of using this book. I bet a person who works there could tell you as much as this book by reading the tags.
