Item Description...

Gardening is now the favorite outdoor leisure activity in America. More and more homeowners now realize the health benefits derived from gardening and the increase in their home's property value.

The trend in gardening books is to regional titles, because they provide credible information on the plants that perform well in specific regions. Gardeners want information they can use successfully in their own gardens.

The popular gardening team of Dan Gill and Dr. Joe White offers the "Louisiana Gardener's Guide - Revised Edition." They recommend specific varieties well-suited for Louisiana and provide advice on how to plant, how to grow and how to care for the state's top-performing plants.

Louisiana Gardener's Guide  Jul 21, 2008
The book is very limited. It doe not include very many plants or a guide on how to grow, protect, or treat problems. ... Very limited.
Great reference guide  Jun 25, 2007
When we first moved to Louisiana, this book was invaluable for making sure that we selected the right plants for our garden. I still refer back to it every year when choosing new annuals.
One busy guy  Oct 14, 2006
I don't know how Dan does it. Between his weekly Times Picayune newspaper column, his weekly gardening segment on WWL-TV Morning Show, a two hour call in radio show every Saturday and constant appearances at seminars, garden shows, I'm surprised Dan could find time to write a book. And a great book it is. If you garden in Louisiana or if you want to garden in Louisiana, you need this book. Hundreds of plants are spotlighted; what conditions they like, where to plant, sun needs and shade wants. Does the plant like wet feet, will it withstand a freeze? With pictures on most every page and comprehensive information on Louisiana plants, this book is an invaluable resource for beginners and reference for professionals.
The BEST book for the money  Jun 14, 2005
After buying our first home, my husband and I split the duties. Mine, of course, was the garden.

Since in the past everything I have touched has died due to forgetfulness to water, I was determined to have a garden with blooming flowers and shrubs. Since beginning on my own, I recently purchased 3 books through this site. After getting them and reading through them the past day or so, this is by far the best of them all.

This book has a picture on almost every page and a great description and legend for the plants, trees, shrubs and flowers it lists. Not every type is in here, but it is the most comprehensive and diverse book I have come across so far. The legend shows sun amounts, what insects are attracted to it (perfect if you don't like bees), which ones are best for cut arrangements and if it has fragrance.

I would recommend buying this book before all others. I have already went back to it many times in the short time I have had it. The other 2 books? I might try to sell them on this site to someone else because they were not much help.
