Gardening in Texas is not for the faint of heart or weak-willed. Given the remarkable variety of soils, climate ranges, and the potential for stifling heat, humidity, and drought, the dedication of so many gardening enthusiasts speaks to the powerful hold plants have over people.

Living and gardening in Central Texas since 1969, Bill Scheick has celebrated successes and analyzed failures; techniques and plants that worked in one yard did not necessarily work in another just a few miles away. In Adventures of Texas Gardening, Scheick shares, through personal accounts as well as stories from fellow gardeners, big gardening efforts-transforming an entire backyard, dealing with unruly pets and marauding wildlife, and fostering vanishing bees. Attention is also given to challenges like soil erosion and yard contamination.

With a firm understanding of horticulture and a good dose of humor, Scheick offers beginning and experienced gardeners a resource for inspiration, information, and commiseration as they pursue their own gardening adventures in Texas.
