One of the latest trends in home horticulture is regional gardening, but most popular garden books and syndicated columns are written by authors on the East or West coasts. Possum in the Pawpaw Tree is aimed at the heartland of the United States, where normal weather means bitter winters, torrential spring rains, and summer drought. The material here is arranged to provide a handy month-by-month guide for indoor and outdoor gardening activities, both for the novice and the more experienced gardener.
