I live in SC and am a new gardener (my wife was the gardener). This book has helped me greatly to know what to buy and how to plant & care for a SC garden. I highly recommend it to anyone gardening in the Carolinas.
I love this book. It has been so helpful, as to I am new to the area. The pictures are beautiful. The When, Where and How to Plant paragraph has been really helpful. As well as the growing tips, care and the companion planting guide.
I just happened to be in a local hardware store and found this. I thought I had all the best gardening books, but this by far has been the most helpful.
