Publishers Description

Gardening is now the favorite outdoor leisure activity in America. Homeowners realize the health benefits available from gardening and the potential increase in their home's property value.

Regional gardening titles offer the most useful advice because they provide credible information on the plants that perform best in specific states. Gardeners want information they can trust and use successfully in their own gardens.

"The Texas Gardening Guide" is converted to a full-color edition with updated plants and the latest information on Texas gardening trends. It is revised by Dale Groom, the popular author and co-author of two other Cool Springs Press titles on gardening in Texas.

Promise Angels is dedicated to bringing you great books at great prices. Whether you read for entertainment, to learn, or for literacy - you will find what you want at!

Reviews - What do customers think about Dale Groom's Texas Gardening Guide - Revised Edition (Dale Groom's Texas Gardening Guide)?

Wonderfully Organized  Mar 4, 2008
Finally a reference that devotes an entire page with a picture and useful advice on each plant! I am not one that wants to pour through a list of items, and then have to look each one up as some reference material is set up. I want to see the picture, read about the plant, know where it should be planted, how it will fair, what care it needs etc etc. This book does all that for me. This book has already made my spring planning/planting at our new home a breeze.
repetitous  Jul 8, 2006
Too much repetition. For each entry: If you have problems, your local plant dealer can give you advice. Well, often the advice you get is not accurate. Lots of references to what his granny grew. It's great he loved his granny, but that is folksy and not useful information. Ignores the problems with periwinkle and red tip photinia diseases.
Pictures are very good. Book is well organized. Bibliography leaves out some important other books by competing radio call-in hosts.
I get the impression that Mr. Groom is a nice, well-intentioned man, but this is not a definitive work on Texas decorative gardening.
Great Color, maybe not enough variety  Jun 27, 2006
I purchased this book after wanting to revamp my lawn. Each page is filled with great detail on each common plant, vine, etc. found in Texas. I found it helpful that it lists the common bugs (if any) that would possibly attack the plant. The book is filled with huge colorful pictures. It is a lot more helpful than the original book Dale Groom has (I have both). I recommend this book to any one who doesn't know a lot about the plants that thrive in the many different areas of Texas.

Although I think this a great book for any Texan, I almost wished there was more variety. I used this in combination with Home Landscaping: Texas (Home Landscaping). Happy Planting!
Great book  Sep 21, 2005
I really like this very simple to read and understand book. It is great for checking out what plants you want to plant.
Part of a collection...  Jul 3, 2005
As a quick reference this book compliments a gardener's information resource. This one can go with you as you do a "walk through" of a landscape design. Excellent photographs help you visualize your ideas.
