Alrighty you Georgia gardeners, listen up! This is the garden book you NEED: Month-By-Month Gardening in Georgia by Walter Reeves and Erica Glasener. Once again I’m recommending a book that you really should own. This is a guide to your garden that you wish your house came with when you signed up for that mortgage. Walter and Erica have put together an easy to follow guide that will help you figure out what needs doing in the yard every month. This is the perfect book to give to the new Georgia gardener or as a housewarming gift for someone with a new home. I wish I’d had this book when I moved to the suburbs and was confronted with a lawn for the first time in my life. But it’s oh so much more than just lawns. It also includes what needs doing to: annuals, bulbs, edibles, perennials, roses, shrubs, trees, and vines too. And it’s set up monthly so no need to get overwhelmed with a year’s worth of garden advice at one time. Just flip to the month you need and read the few pages that apply.
Georgia gardeners and gardener wannabes run on down to your local public library and check out a copy of this book. Every library in Georgia will have a copy! Find them here. 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!
