Heads up southerners!
Have you been bitten by the gardening bug?
Are you struggling to figure out what to plant and where?
Don’t have time to baby those plants?
Well have I got the book for you!
Tough Plants for Southern Gardens by Felder Rushing is just the book you need. Along with lots of photos this book is full of details about oodles of different plants. This info is helpful enough to help you find the right kind of plant and where to put it in your yard. Plus, Felder includes an extra little tip about each plant that you can share with your friends that will make them marvel at your vast horticultural knowledge.
You know why else I love this book? Because Felder is just folks. He’s an everyday ordinary person just like us and he wants to try to help us succeed in our gardens. He doesn’t gussy things up with highfalutin mumbo jumbo, he says things that make sense. Notice anything interesting about the fabulous garden in the above photo? Look harder. Yep, that stunning garden belongs to a trailer. Doesn’t matter where you live, Felder will help you create a beautiful garden.
I know you want this book so hoof it on down your local public library. If they don’t have it ask them to get it for you. If you’re in Georgia you can click here to find out which libraries have it. Those outside of Georgia can click here to see which libraries near you have it. (hint: type in your zip code so you can find the closest library that has it). Enjoy!
