A classic! Though it was written 70 years ago, the writing is still fresh and interesting. There is a wealth of information on plants and gardening in the Middle South but it is written as an almost intimate look at the relationship between the author and her garden throughout the year. I was very inspired by the book and remade my garden based on the author's advice. Not only is it a good read, it is an invaluable reference. You will be Google-ing for hours checking names and looking for pictures of the plants she describes. I have worn my copy out and am buying a new copy today. By the way, her garden in Charlotte has been preserved by the Garden Conservancy and is open to the public.
