The new edition was compiled and edited by 21 local Master Gardeners and features gardening in the Sierra Nevada foothills. Local citizens contributed their ideas over the past few years when they responded to questionnaires on what they would like to see in the guide.
Nine new sections, five updated sections, and a complete redesign add to the excitement of this new gardening guide. After many requests, an index with over 900 entries was added. User-friendly formatting and more illustrations add to the ease of reading.
The new sections include:
-Raised-bed Planter Box
-Growing Blueberries in Nevada County
-Growing Raspberries in Nevada County
-Growing Strawberries in Nevada County
-Container Gardening: Big Payoff from a Small Space
-Japanese Maples in the Foothills

-Beneficial Insects of Nevada County Gardens
Updated and expanded sections include:

The back cover includes an easy reference to the Master Gardener services.
