About

Gulf Coast Gardening

At Gulf Coast Gardening our desire is to provide information about gardening…not only for us green-thumb (and some of us “black thumb”) veterans but also for all our beginning gardeners.

There are about 16 million people living along the Gulf Coast in Zones 8 and 9. About 25% are home gardeners, which means that home gardeners along the Gulf coast from Corpus Christi to Tampa number about 4 million. That’s a lot of gardeners.

Some of us grow vegetables and fruit, some grow ornamentals,  some grow indoor plants, and many of us do all these things.  A third of us are over 35, while the number of those under 35 is increasing day by day.

I am interested in your feedback, questions, suggestions, and observations. You can contact me.

My Upcoming Gardening Book

Gardening is a form of communication all its own – shortcut to the language of the heart, not the mind. Raising tomatoes, beans, roses or even native plants is a means of positive communication between all folks, young and old, physically able and physically and intellectually challenged, between all ranges of political, social, and philosophical differences.

I hope you find this book helpful and resourcesful.
