Sunbelt Gardening: Success in Hot-Weather Climates Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"There are many not-so-gentle euphemisms and colloquialisms about intense, relentless summer heat." So begins Tom Peace's introduction of one of the sunbelt challenges--others being hot soil, high nighttime temperatures, two growing seasons, and drought--which, in general, aren't addressed in most garden books. Sunbelt Gardening offers respite, and with it you'll get the best advice on how to achieve stunning hot-weather gardens all year long.

Book News Annotation:

Written for gardeners in the southeastern, southcentral, and southwestern US, this personably written gardening guide discusses climate and soils, cultivation techniques, and how to select suitable plants for a particular region's climate. Superb, detailed color photographs provide ample inspiration for gardeners in any climate.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
