Mid-Atlantic Getting Started Garden Guide is a plant selection guide, perfect for when you're choosing plants and starting a garden in a climate that can be as challenging as it is beautiful. Choose the right plants and care for them properly with help from two of the area's most highly respected and experienced plantsmen, Andre and Mark Viette, and horticulture writer Jacqui Heriteau. The authors' top picks for plants that will thrive in (or in spite of) the regions's heat, humidity, winter cold, soil, coastal climate, and other unique growing conditions guarantee success for the area gardeners and home landscapers. Plants are divided into easy-to-browse chapters, including Annuals, Bulbs, Groundcovers, Ornamental Grasses, Perennials, Shrubs, Trees, Lawns, and Vines. Each plant is highlighted in its respective chapter with a large full-color photograph and tips on how, when, and where to plant.

Along with the "nitty-gritty" of tending your garden, the authors share their inspiration for garden design, offer ways to incorporate your plants into the landscape, and name some favorite cultivars or species. Their sound, practical advice is clothed in beautiful descriptions of each plant that will inspire you to get your hands dirty!
