Dr. Bill Welch and Greg Grant's new book, Heirloom Gardening in the South: Yesterday's Plants for Today's Gardens
Hot off the press on April 7, 2011!
Dr. Bill Welch and Greg Grant have teamed up to produce this enjoyable and excellent resource for southern gardeners. A renowned horticulturist, Jerry Spencer, has remarked, "I really enjoyed reading a book written in the first person as if it was a personal letter from a close friend not unlike Thomas Jefferson's many letters to those who shared his joy in gardening and farming. The in-depth history of many plants makes us appreciate the horticultural heritage we enjoy....My only disappointment was that it came to an end after only 500 pages. I could have read much more." The interesting and lovely work includes 483 color photos and makes for excellent summer reading!
