One of the challenges in selecting a gardening book is that there are literally thousands on the market. I "snicker" a bit when I see books discussing lilacs and tulips or read about gardening techniques in Vermont. These books have pretty pictures but the information is usually not well adapted to our area.
This list contains a little something for everyone. If you don't see what you're looking for check out the entire bookstore - with over 60 titles.
The Vegetable Book by Sam Cotner
Pretty much the Bible for vegetable gardening in Texas.
Growing Fruits & Nuts in the South by Wm Adams & Tom LeRoy.
Bill and Tom were Extension agents in the Houston area for many years. Excellent choice.
Texas Garden Almanac by Doug Welsh
A month by month gardening guide for Texas.
Southern Herb Growing by Madalene Hill, et al
Madalene Hill is considered by many as "the" Texas herb authority.
Touring Texas Gardens by Jesse Gunn
Great reference for road trips.
Perennial Garden Color by Bill Welch
Considered "the" comprehensive book on perennials for our area.
