The Right Plants for Dry Places by Sheryl Bowman

Right Plants for Dry Places by. Suncoast Native Plant Society (Contributor), Sheryl Bowman. Note: these are all the books on Goodreads for this author.

Plants for Problem Places - North Facing Walls and Deep Shade. Most gardens have at least one spot that does not seem to want to grow plants. Perhaps it is very wet or very dry, it could be a wind funnel, the soil might be particularly poor or there is too much shade, This is the first of a series of articles about growing food plants in those difficult positions - this one will focus on those dark areas of the garden where plants always look somewhat thrifty. Although widely grown in gardens, few people realise that fuchsia fruits are edible and, if the right cultivars or species are chosen, they can make a very acceptable dessert in late summer and early autumn. It is always worth your while tasting the fruits of any fuchsia you see - at the worst you will end up with a peppery after-taste in the mouth and, with the better forms, you will have a delicious fruit.

Balconies are probably the worst places on earth to grow things - hot, windy, either totally shady or with sunlight glaring off the concrete - and many get no rain either. Here's a guide to choosing the right plants. 1. Choose the right plants. Choose plants that either adore heat, sun and more heat or those that thrive in shade, depending on the conditions of your balcony. Bougainvillea can be stunning on a hot, sunny balcony, as can agaves, cordylines (look for the reddish bronze ones or yellow and green striped ones), ornamental grasses of all kinds, any cacti or succulents; ms, erigeron, white or purple alyssum, daisies, rosemary, lavender, sage, calendula, petunia, gazania, tomatoes, marigolds or even tiny Golden Nugget pumpkins or golden zuchini.

Drought-tolerant plants are capable of coping with hot and dry conditions, although provided you water regularly, you needn't be limited to drought-tolerant plants alone. A south-facing garden that gets plenty of light is a fantastic thing. But unrelenting full sun can be a problem for certain plants, causing them to wilt and struggle. The good news is that there’s a wide variety of plants that positively thrive in these sunny conditions. Choose from our range of drought-tolerant plants that enjoy hot and dry weather.

The best introduction to Florida landscape gardening. This is the book that originally turned me on to the idea of planting Florida Natives in the landscape. Its the best decision I have made. It is so rewarding to see the little critters every day enjoying the habitat I have made for them!
Interesting book. VEry helpful in setting up a zeroscape. I am starting to use more native plants and this book refered to both native and not native species for Florida.
