Outstanding Horticultural Books for Florida Gardeners

MAXWELLS FLORIDA Outstanding Horticultural Books http://home.comcast.net/~maxwellsflorida/index.htm
Publisher Betty M. Maxwell is pleased to announce that the series of Florida gardening books authored by her late husband Lewis S. Maxwell is now available for purchase via the Internet.
Beginning in 1959, professional entomologist and plant pathologist Lewis S. Maxwell penned a highly successful and classic series of Florida horticultural handbooks edited by his biologist wife, Betty M. Maxwell. Teamed together, the couple was also well known for publishing the long-running bi-monthly Florida Garden Guide, a mainstay of the gardening community which was made available to customers complimentarily by local nurseries and other horticulture related businesses, and which enjoyed more than 33 years of continuous publication.
In print since the early 1960s, the books have sold well over 800,000 copies. These mainstays are used as texts for educational purposes throughout Florida and are especially helpful to new home owners and other newcomers to Florida gardening as well as to those maintaining second homes in Florida. Individually or as a set, the handbooks make marvelous gifts.
