About the Author:

DIANE HEILENMAN is gardening columnist for the Louisville Courier-Journal.

From Library Journal:

Heilenman, garden columnist for the Louisville Courier-Journal, has written a guide to gardening in USDA plant hardiness zones 5 and 6, specifically, upper Kentucky; all of Ohio, Indiana, and Illinois; lower Iowa; all of Missouri; and the lower parts of Wisconsin and Michigan. She tags these areas with the unflattering label the "Zombie Zones" because they can have some of the most pronounced temperature swings in the country. While Heilenman presents basic gardening techniques and personal plant preferences in a breezy writing style, her book is similar in scope to two other regional gardening guides: Roger Vick's Gardening Plains and Upper Midwest (LJ 12/90) and Rachel Snyder's Gardening in the Heartland ("Regional Gardening Books and How They Grow," LJ 12/93, p. 83-86). An optional purchase for Midwest gardening collections; for an inspiring photographic treatment of 22 Midwestern gardens, seeded throughout with plant recommendations and gardening tips, Pamela Wolfe's Midwest Gardens (LJ 1/92) is still unmatched.
