"Every page of "Southern Gardens, Southern Gardening" speaks with a civilized and cosmopolitan accent; it is clearly one of the best books on horticulture published in recent years."
--Allen Lacy," Horticulture"
"William Lanier Hunt's book is the work of a learned and well-traveled garden enthusiast . . . the work of a writer whose gardening horizons are very wide, and whose sense of history and locale is strong."
--Harriet H. Jansma," Garden Design"
"This attractive collection of miniature essays about individual kinds of plants, arranged according to their month of bloom or prominence in the landscape, deserves attention on both sides of the Mason-Dixon line. Although Northern gardeners may envy Mr. Hunt his easy talk of gardenias and jasmines and tender species of camellia, he writes vividly out of a lifetime of experience with plants, many of which are not restricted to the South."
--Wall Street Journal
