Here is what people are saying about the Garden Guide for Austin and Vicinity:

“The Master Gardener Garden Guide is one of Central Texas’ best resources for new gardeners. When, what, where and how to garden is all beautifully laid out with a month-to-month outline of what to do. Of the different tools one needs to garden, the Garden Guide is one of the more important ones.” John Dromgoole, The Natural Gardener.

“The Garden Guide for Austin and Vicinity is a must have monthly planting, buying, and forcasting aid followed avidly by our garden staff at Breed & Co. and many of our clients.” Brian Richardson, Breed & Co.

“A thorough and helpful resource for Austin gardeners.” Joe Hammer, Director of Product Marketing & Licensing, Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center.
