The Q&A Archives: New construction garden planning

Question: We have purchased a new property in Taos NM. It is a condo with a small area that I would like to plant. We will be there just summers. Can you advise a book on planting for the area. I do not want to spend hours each week doing gardening. Thank you. Genevieve

Answer: I'd suggest New Mexico Gardener's Guide by Judith Phillips, who has worked with plants in the region for many years. She has written other books as well, with more extensive design information, but this one would be a good starting point. Good luck with your garden!
