Win Your Own Copy of What Plant Where Encyclopedia

This time of the year, my family and I spend lots of time gardening, shopping for the garden, tending the plants, and weeding to keep our garden a clean and well maintained space. For us gardening is exciting, tiring, and relaxing. We love reading books about gardening, trying a variety of different plants and flowers every year, growing to love some plants more than others, talking about plants, recommending our favourites and our tips to family, friends, and neighbours. Recently, I got a wonderful book from DK that tells all about what plants go where in our garden.
The Canadian Edition of What Plant Where Encyclopedia helps us to easily to know what plants to put where, as it gives us detailed information about different plants we can choose and where it will thrive the best. 
The book features more than 3000 plants that are organized by size and situation, as well as thousands of recommendations for Canadian gardeners.

Every plant suggestion is illustrated with a full colour photograph, and it includes a Canadian hardiness zone map and ratings.

Then in part one plant locations it is separated by gardens in the sun and shade, and focuses sections separated by soil; clay and sandy, then focuses on specific types of plants such as roses, irises, herbs, dahlias, hostas, leafy greens, and more.
