Thanks and a Tip of the Hat to esh_ga and ggg
Dear esh_ga and ggg,
Thanks for mentioning the following two books in recent postings to the Georgia Gardener Forum: Gil Nelson's _Best Native Plants for Southern Gardens: A Handbook for Gardeners, Homeowners, and Professionals_ (Gainesville: Univ. of Florida Press, 2010) and Sally Wasowski's _Gardening with Native Plants of the South_ (Houston?: Taylor, 1994), respectively. I've ordered copies of both books through the American Book Exchange (www.abe.com) and have received Nelson's excellent _vade mecum_ and am eagerly awaiting receipt of Wasowski's handbook.
