"I had the privilege of being able to go over this material prior to publication and was impressed by the amount of practical information it contained. It is an excellent addition to the literature on Florida Gardening in a format that is so easy to follow that it should encourage many new gardeners."Joan Brookwell, author of Native Florida Plants
"The book contains links to garden web sites and gardens located in south Florida giving readers an opportunity to visit the gardens before actually driving there. In addition the publishers maintain a web site for the book at http://www.a-garden-diary.com where these locations are hot linked and changes to the internet links will be updated on a regular basis."Bob Boufford, author of The Gardener's Computer Companion
"Finally! a book for south Florida gardeners that is so incredibly clear in instruction on planting, growing and plant care. This wonderful book can be compared only to those easy to follow books designed for those new to the computer world and could be entitled "Gardening for Dummies"! Here in south Florida we have been clamoring for such a book and HERE IT IS, FINALLY!Jo Williams, Florida Federation of Garden Clubs President 1997-1999: National Council of State Garden Clubs, Inc. Chairman Habitat for Humanity Landscape Project 1999-2001
The noble gesture on the part of the publishers to donate a portion of the proceeds from the sale of the book to Landscaping Habitat for Humanity Homes is commendable. National Council of State Garden Clubs applauds the efforts of the publishers as is strengthens the partnership between NCSGC and HFH in working together to build a greener future for needy homeowners and our community."
"A GARDEN DIARY is a fantastic new book! As a landscape contractor who does just upscale homes, I am most pleased with this new book. I bought a dozen of them to give to my best clients. Of course, I kept one copy for myself and use it on a regular basis.Richard H. Ireland, President of RH Ireland and Sons Landscape Construction Inc.
Everyone who I have shown the book to or given a copy has commented that this book is one of the best gardening books that they have ever seen. It is user friendly and very informative.
Keep up the good work and tell me when your next book is published. "
