Rocky Mountain Gardener's Handbook includes 300 plant profiles organized under ten plant categories, from annuals to vines. Each plant profile page includes three recommended plants, with full-color images, helpful icons for sun and shade requirements, and planting and growing information. Twelve months of around-the-garden maintenance information for each plant category assists the gardener with what to do to maintain a Rocky Mountain garden in the states of Colorado, Montana, Utah, Idaho, Nevada, and Wyoming. Includes helpful charts, illustrations, and full-color plant images.

John hosted the Gardening with an Altitude radio program for thirty years and has been an expert on Rocky Mountain Gardening for area TV and HGTV.
His down-to-earth approach broadens the horizons of gardeners dealing with the unique and challenging climates of the region, where temperature fluctuations, wind, hail, unpredictable storms, difficult soils, and cunning critters are the norm.
