"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
Southern gardeners know that they have more and different pests and longer growing seasons than are described in most general gardening books. Warm-Climate Gardening recognizes these facts and provides ways of dealing with them effectively. Pleasant carries the reader from composting to vegetables, flowers, ground covers and grasses and provides a handy list of sources for seeds and plants. Her style is thoughtful, friendly, and down to earth, and the book makes entertaining as well as informative reading. Pleasant starts by saying that "Warm-climate gardeners don't make jokes about okra" and concludes that "Good gardeners never stop wondering, asking questions, and learning new things. Part of gardening's payback is that it keeps your mind alive." Recommended for regional libraries.
