From Booklist

For gardeners in Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Texas, there's information on hundreds of varieties of vegetables--divided into warm-season and cool-season--and on 27 herbs. Each listing includes basic planting instructions, such as spacing, seed depth, and days needed to reach maturity. There are tips for growing each vegetable, as well as a chapter on getting started, which includes data on planning, soil requirements, starting with seeds, and container gardening. Another chapter covers pest and disease control. This comprehensive guide includes more than 100 color photographs by Adams. George Cohen

I'm a new resident in the South and gardening is a lot different than where I came from. I needed tons of advice. This book was extremely substantive and a covered a multitude of topics. Had to buy one for my Mom, too. This book will become my major vegetable gardening reference.

This book is very informative, don't try and plant without it! Everything from working soil and crop rotation to container gardening and pest control. Plus great information on how to plant specific vegetables. Our neighbors dog got to mine and I had to get another right away!
