Take a stroll through the garden of a self-confessed hortimaniac. Gardening is Marie Harrison’s avocation, passion . . . some might say, obsession. In her personal, witty style (she refers to her husband as Amiable Spouse, or A.S. for short), Marie divulges her own tried-and-true ways of gardening along the coasts of the southeast United States.

Marie covers perennials, flowers grown from bulbs, herbs, shrubs and small trees, vines, edible flowers, and herbs for flower borders. A section of full-color photos captures these beautiful plants and flowers in all their vibrant glory. Charming pen-and-ink illustrations are sprinkled throughout the text.

Marie discusses the edible and medicinal properties of various plants (there’s even a quick recipe or two!), as well as coastal considerations such as salt tolerance; environmental issues such as pesticide use, beneficial insects, and exotic invasives; and gardening for birds and butterflies. She also offers her musings on the seasons in Florida and how she spends her time in the garden during each phase of the year. Whether you’re a seasoned gardener like Marie or a tentative beginner just starting out with a windowsill herb garden, this delightful book will make you appreciate the dirt under your fingernails.

Marie Harrison is a Master Gardener and serves on the Board of Directors for the Florida Federation of Garden Clubs. She is the author of Gardening in the Coastal South, also published by Pineapple Press. She writes gardening columns for a number of newspapers and other publications in addition to lecturing frequently at garden clubs, centers, and seminars. She lives with her Amiable Spouse in the midst of her lovely garden in Valparaiso, Florida.
