Editorial Reviews

Mexia Daily News

"If one wants to have a garden, a lawn, trees, flowering plants, or wants to simply control pests, one should look no further than Central Texas Gardener written by Cheryl Hazeltine with photos by Richard Hazeltine. . . It is a gardening book without peer. The author has a conversational style and a clever sense of humor, but she knows her stuff. I don't know her, but Ill bet she is 'good gal'. . . An extra dose of credit should be given to Richard, her photographer and husband. His photos are great. . . It is so informative and interesting, it is hard to put it down. Simply being able to identify plants around the place makes the book, a valuable friend. The book and its pictures make gardening a new and exciting project. . . Now if the Hazeltines can write a book just as good on raising kids, this bill be a better place. If you have a desire to grow something, get a copy of Central Texas Gardener." - Jerry Turner, Mexia Daily News
