This book never quits:
It’s wonderful to see how many people appreciate my work on simplifying Florida gardening. The subtitle is the truth: it really does contain the secret to growing piles of food in the sunshine state. It’s not so much about techniques and tools and irrigation and all the things you think about when you garden; rather, it’s picking the right plants and varieties for the climate.
Once you have a list of sure-fire crops in hand, you can hardly go wrong. As I learned in my master gardening courses: “Right Plant, Right Place!”
You can get the book here in paperback, and here in audiobook format.
Congratulations David el Bueno,
Stoked on the continued success on this great resource book. I have recommended it to a lot of people that show interest in gardening. I hope the sales are are translating to good income for the growing family.
I’m not surprised by the uptick in sales as our Florida fall gardening season is kicking off now. I recently reread the book and just started a bunch of tomato varieties that your friend recommended in appendix IV such as Better Boy, Early Girl, Roma and Amish Paste. I found the seeds on Etsy and started them a couple weeks ago in the shade. I will plant again in late January as I usually do. I have had great luck with Better Boy and of course Glades. I also just planted some Kale and Seminole pumpkins. I appreciate all the inspiration.
Thanks for the recommendations on the book!
I am going to do a revised and expanded version soon with more data on varieties and some more soil research I did with Steve Solomon. Just a matter of time.
If your tomatoes do well, please send pictures. We need more tomato growing stories from Florida.
I tell everyone interested in gardening to purchase your book. It is vary uplifting when failure is a constant companion. Most of the plants you suggested are growing with little care.Thank you…….
Thank you very much, Heather. I killed a lot of plants in order to write that book.
