Description

Think of Doug Welsh's ""Texas Garden Almanac"" as a giant monthly calendar for the entire state - a practical, information-packed, month-by-month guide for gardeners and ""yardeners."" This book provides everything you need to know about flowers and garden design; trees, shrubs, and vines; lawns; vegetable, herb, and fruit gardening; and soil, mulch, water, pests, and plant care. It will help you to create beautiful, productive, healthy gardens and have fun doing it. Writer, educator, and broadcaster Doug Welsh gives a wealth of practical gardening advice in this book. Encouraging us to ""think like a plant,"" Welsh holds pruning school in February, conducts a lawn clinic in April, builds a perennial garden in September, and shows us how to grow fresh vegetables for Thanksgiving. Yet this barely scratches the surface of all that is offered in this comprehensive, fun-to-use guide. With colorful and instructive illustrations and helpful information boxes, plant lists, charts, sidebars, and tips, the book is written in the engaging, conversational style that anyone who has listened to Welsh's radio show will recognize. Whether your passion is roses or green beans, wild-flowers or trees, reading this book is like having a personal garden consultant and friend at your side. Doug Welsh's ""Texas Garden Almanac"" will inspire you throughout the year and make you more eager than ever to get out into your garden.show more
