“Florida Gardening by the Sea,” a new acquisition in the Naples a Garden Club library, is an excellent resource for those of us who have moved from gardens in the North and are challenged by the transition of gardening on Florida’s Gulf Coast.

With its opening pages filled with inspiration and aspiration of gardening benefits, worth a re-read during stressful times, to its practical advice on adapting many plants we loved in the North to the coastal demands, author Mary Jane McSwain has written a 174 page classic.

Come to the library to peruse; you may decide to buy this book for yourself or as a gift.
