Editorial Reviews

Texas Highways

"This month-by-month gardening guide uses handy hints and beautiful illustrations to present the ins and outs of planting flowers, trees, vegetables, herbs and more. You'll also find tips on when to plant, managing pests, beautifying your land and designing that perfect garden." --Texas Highways
The Eagle

"In his Texas Garden Almanac, Doug Welsh suggests these shade trees for our area-bald cypress, Shumard oak and live oak. Note that live oaks can gorw to well over 60 feet tall and wide. They are best suited to large, expansive sites. Other good choices are Mexican sycamore, Monterrey oak, lace bark elm, Chinese pistache and bur oak."--Charla Anthony, The Eagle

“Doug Welsh offers us a wonderful month-by-month guide to gardening in Texas…with a wealth of in-depth knowledge and information on what it takes to garden in Texas.

. . . a must for all Texas gardeners.
Dave's Garden website
Doug Welsh is an asset to gardeners all over Texas with his friendly and helpful radio show, and his contributions to the Master Gardener program. This book is a treasure trove of information about gardening in Texas. It's organized like a calendar of sorts where each section covers a month. He gives timely tips for each month and has lots of fun stories and little pieces of information to help you learn more about Texas gardening while you enjoy the book. The illustrations are beautiful and the book is huge (almost 500 pages). This is a definite 'must have' for all Texas gardeners.
