"Push the Zone" is the 3rd book of a series but can be read as a stand alone. I won't give any spoilers, but Mr. the Good describes many methods that he has researched or attempted to grow plants outside of their recommended range. Since he approaches gardening as an experimenter, he also gives examples of what didn't work so well for him, and along the way he discusses ideas that he thinks might work but hasn't personally attempted yet. He gives suggestions on how to improve conditions within a greenhouse for zone pushing, as well as discussing the conditions to look for when deciding where in your property to prepare and plant warmer-zone plants for the best chance of success. The final chapter provides a discussion of how to care for a lengthy list of particular plants.
If a gardening book can be said to be hard to put down, well this one makes that list. Even if you never had the urge to pick up a shovel, you will probably still enjoy reading it. If for no other reason, David is an encourager, exhorting us to go out and try something even when we've been told that it's impossible. Maybe it is, but maybe it's just improbable instead.
After some reflection, David, I take it back. I don't "hate" you, I just don't like that you've left me with this guilt complex for not doing what God put Adam on earth originally to do. And how could I dislike a brother-in-arms in the fight to keep our pies free of meringue. You, sir, are a pie patriot, and for that I salute you.
Also, check out David the Good's youtube channel for some good advice and sick beats. Compost your enemies!
Good book, learned a few good tidbits, was even reading this when we had our late March dip into the 20`s.....used the rain barrel idea and saved my new citrus plants.
