Thanks for posting about that book for the Puget Sound region. I ordered it and am excited for it to come! I've been looking for something more specific to the region, feels like 99% of gardening books don't really apply here.
Has anyone grown or know of anyone growing loquats in the PNW? I think that they would work up here, but they are a little bit of a rare plant in the US in general and I haven't heard much about them except in CA.
