Outstanding book! All-organized, well-written, lots of summary charts for quick reference. I especially loved the recommendations about how to think about Florida seasons (very different from midwest and northeast), and what/when to grow. Astounding breadth & right balance of depth in discussing landscaping plants as well as veggies and flowers, A bonus-- what to think about before the move - whether to bring any plants, & if so. what kind, tools, etc. Great info on rain/water conservation, connecting with other gardeners in your new area, additional resources for assistance. I'm so glad I found this book early in my days as a new Floridian gardener.

I being new to Florida I am finding her book to be very informative but would have like the pictures to have been in color. It helps when you are planning your landscape the color scheme to know what color the plant is without going to a nursery or big box store. This is my only complaint.

I am reading this now since I live in Wisconsin and will be moving to Florida. Seems informative but a little discouraging gardening in Florida is going to be way different than in Wisconsin.

I am a horticulturist and after moving to Florida, I was looking more for plant books for Florida. But once I started to garden here and saw a copy of this book in the library, I wanted my own copy. I enjoy Ms Brandies' style, and reading it is like going over to a friend's yard and being taught how to garden. I highly recommend this book, even if you have gardened in other places, since much of what we used to do, changes here.

When I got this book I wanted to want to send it back but no can do. It is a decent book even for a Master Gardener from Colorado, not a $20 book, but a good, well priced book full of important info. This book will cut your learning curve when you move to S Florida. FYI: I have the beautiful plant shown on the cover Angel's Trumpet. OMG a show stopper! Got bugs? Yep! But so worth the fight and grows in semi-shade!

If you are a gardener and have just moved to Florida, this is the first book you should read! I lived in northern Ohio, zone 5, and have been a gardener for over 30 years. When I moved here less then a year ago I knew I needed to learn a whole lot of new stuff. My first stop was the library and that is where I found Monica Brandies books. This book is the first gardening book that I have ever read cover to cover. I love the way she writes and she makes it easy to learn. I now have most of her books.

Now I'll be able to not only identify native plants but will know which of my favorites I can still grow vs the ones I'll have to not grow! Better to know before wasting time & money on plants that just don't do well. I'll trade my raspberries for blackberries!
Very good info, wish it was in color but still good
