Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
For those of us who are avid gardeners but unfamiliar with Texas gardening conditions, this book is as much an invaluable tool as a spade and a trowel.
I did not know that Dale Groom was well-known to Texas gardeners as "The Plant Groom," or anything else about this beloved Texan plant guru. I came across this book by recommendation, and I'm so glad I did! In an easy-to-use, easy-to-read format, Groom divides his book into logical sequences, from Annuals through Native Trees to Perennials, Roses, Shrubs and more. For this impatient gardener, the book format couldn't be more perfect. Every question I have has an answer, and every answer is readily available.
The nice, sturdy thickness of this paperback is a plus as well. I can see propping it up in my Texas friend's Houston garden as I struggle to turn a pig's ear (his over-run, sadly neglected, crying-out-for-attention flowerbeds) into a silk purse (Oh I have so many ideas!!!!)
As a Pennsylvanian, I recommend this book to anybody and everybody who has ever gardened in Texas, from the seasoned gardener to the amateur. There is something in here for everybody, and the only thing missing is a big smear of Texas mud on the cover. I plan to see it gets there soon!

I am new to Texas as well as gardening. This book is a great reference as well as a great book to spark new ideas. I place this publication in the "must have" catagory for any Texas gardner that wishes to succeed.
