Snowbird Gardening is my latest favorite gardening book. As a long time Florida resident, I didn't initially expect this book to be so helpful, but the front cover calls it a "fact-filled easy guide to keep your landscaping alive and beautiful with only part-time care" and part time sure describes my gardening efforts. This book not only offers 170 colored pictures, but it also has direct, funny, honest advice about plants. Besides, the pocket-sized book easily fits in my glove compartment and I'm never buying fertilizer without its handy guide.
