Deep South Gardeners are faced with everything from overgrown kudzu to extreme weather and unpredictable seasons. Conditions in USDA Zones 7 to 9 are a challenge, but help is here at last, with Nellie Neal's book of real questions from gardeners who call her on the SuperTalk MS Radio Network, and their answers. Her listeners depend on her for on-target, succinct, effective advice on finding the best-suited plants, simplifying garden chores, keeping plants looking healthy and great, and working gently in tandem with nature. She hears her favorite compliment often --"Your advice really works." It can work for you. The chapters cover fall, winter, spring, and summer, each with chores and tips for the season, and, the heart of the book, many questions straight from the talk show, with expanded answers.
