Now in an updated and expanded second edition, "Florida Gardening: The New Comer's Survival Manual" by Florida gardening expert Monica Moran Brandies is the ideal instruction manual for newcomers to the Florida landscape and who want to enjoy the benefits of home gardening. "Florida Gardening" will help aspiring gardeners to deal with Florida's sandbox-type soil, upside-down gardening year, muggy climate, and insects. Informed and informative, there are individual chapters dealing specifically with preparing for Floridian gardening generally, avoiding expensive mistakes, Florida plant material, exotic and common flowers, shrubs, trees, vegetables, fruits, container gardening, soil improvements, native and eco-friendly plants, and so much more. Written with flair, humor, and expertise, "Florida Gardening" should be considered as a prime and primary instruction guide for anyone wanting to create a lawn or grow garden anywhere in Florida.

For the most part the information was interesting but the fact that the pictures were only in black and white was a great disappointment. "Florida-Gardener's Guide is far superior in content and in appearance.

I bought the first edition of this book over 5 years ago when we first owned our house in central FL. I have been an avid gardener in MA for many years but the climate, different soil/sand and new plants had me intimidated. Even though we have made trips down here once a year for the years since owning this piece of paradise we had to wait until 4 weeks ago to move for real and now my book is well read and falling apart from so much reading. Next weekend I'm excited to be going to Monica Brandies' home and garden for a tour and tea...about 2 hours from where my new home is and I can't wait to get a new copy of this same book and possibly others by her. Her advice is "down home" and she has been the newcomer herself so understands the fears and problem we newbies have. I can look up plants online or in other books to get the full color photos but her experience and advice are priceless!
