Southern Garden (Paperback)
The author believes gardening in the middle South, where seasons have no definite boundaries but merge imperceptibly, could and should be a year-round pleasure. She takes us through the cycle of seasons, telling which plants are most suitable to which season. The book includes tables giving blooming dates of over eight hundred varieties of plants which were recorded over a period of years.
