About the Author:

Pamela Crawford began gardening at age 3 with her English mother in Mississippi. She moved to Florida in the 70’s, planning a gorgeous garden filled with color. The next few years brought more blunders than blooms, as she made every gardening mistake in the book! These early errors started a three-decade saga to learn everything she could about Florida gardening. She got a Master’s Degree in Landscape Architecture from Florida International University, followed by starting a nursery and garden design business. While designing 1500 gardens, she also started trial gardens to determine which plants gave the highest performance with the least amount of care. Of the 2500 plants tested to date, only 230 passed her difficult trials. These are truly tough plants!

10 years ago, Pamela began shipping plants to Mississippi to learn more about the cold tolerance of her plants. These results have great applicability to the northern parts of Florida.

Pamela is planning three books in her Florida Gardening Series. The first book, "Easy Gardens for South Florida", was published in 2000 and features 100 easy plants as well as all you ever needed to know about how to plant and maintain your Florida garden. "Best Garden Color for Florida" is the second volume. "Containers and Accessories for Florida Gardens" is the third volume, which should be released in early 2005.
