The Timber Press guide to vegetable gardening in the Southeast / Ira Wallace.

Wallace, Ira. (Author).



Growing vegetables requires regionally specific information: what to plant, when to plant it, and when to harvest are based on climate, weather, and first frost. The Timber Press Guide to Vegetable Gardening in the Southeast tackles this need head on, with regionally specific growing information written by local gardening expert, Ira Wallace. Monthly planting guides show exactly what you can do in the garden from January through December. The skill sets go beyond the basics with tutorials on seed saving, worm bins, and more. This book also includes a comprehensive gardening primer and an A to Z of edibles: a detailed, invaluable source for the region's tried-and-tested varieties.
