East Bay Beginner
I'm looking for a good, basic gardening book as a gift for my son. He and his wife just bought their first house and are working to get the yard in order. They live in Alameda so I'm looking for a book specific to the area.
I'm from Wisconsin. I know nothing about California plants or micro-climates so it is hard for me to judge the contents of a book.
I found a recommendation for a book by Bauer titled "The Habitat Garden Book : Wildlife Landscaping for the San Francisco Bay Region." It looks good to me!
Does anyone have a good recommendation for me?
