This is a fantastic book for all gardeners, new and experienced. If you use "To-Do" lists, this book will keep you on track. The book is separated by month and by type of gardening including chapters on: lawns, trees, perennial flowers, annual flowers, shrubs, bulbs, houseplants, roses, ground covers, and vegetables.My only complaint is that if you do many types of gardening, you have to look in many chapters to find the information. For example, I have a vegetable garden, enjoy flowers and want to keep my lawn looking nice. So, I have to look into three different chapters each month to find the information.The good news is that the information is in there. If I had one book to buy, I'd first buy, Neil Sperry's Neil Sperry's Complete Guide to Texas Gardening, 2nd Edition book. I would then save my money and buy this one. It is worth the money.
This has helped me begin planning for a Spring garden-I'm a newbie.I've made my design.I have my list of vegetables that I want to plant.And have gotten a journal going to keep track of my progressand to learn from my mistakes!
Great book for beginners like me. Looking forward to starting my Texas garden! I only wish there were more illustrations.
SUPER!! A must-have for every Texas gardener!! I bought this for my daughter as they recently purchase a house & she is always asking me questions on gardening. This really spells it out, month by month! I bought a used one as it is in fantastic shape & I'm so into recycling! I encouraged her to make any helpful notations in the margins to assist her with next year's garden.I like this book so much I ordered a used one for myself along with my favorite, organic, "Dirt Doctor"'s book.
Very useful. Every part of Texas has very different weather but this seemed to allow for that. thanks a lot
Very interesting and informative. I will be following the books advice and hope to have a beautiful garden.
Have not spent a lot of time with it yet ,but seems to be very comprehensive to give me the answers I need.
Came from N.E. a while ago. Trying to learn how to grow food in this climate. Real interesting. Reading helps....(maybe)
