Right Here! Plants That Thrive in East Tennessee

Right Here! Plants That Thrive in East Tennessee is a book of plant descriptions and stories, written and illustrated with color photos by 25 Blount County Master Gardeners. Our book is second cousin, once removed, to a church cookbook. From Abelia to Vitex, we wrote about our favorite plants (60 in all).  All are easy to grow in our soil, heat, and humidity. Some essays are straightforward, some humorous; many have anecdotes describing the writer's experience with the plant and idiosyncratic details of care and cultivation not found in the standard how-to's. And although readers in other states have applauded its utility, this book is an East Tennessee native.  Readers have liked the variety, and the book has been popular, requiring multiple printings; it also won a state Master Gardener award.  

"Any East Tennessee gardening guide that discusses Iris, Joe Pye Weed, dogwoods, and redbuds has to be good! Right Here! contains favorite plants and shrubs from seasoned gardeners, plus practical advice about what works in our part of the state... A very sensible and handy book."

— Mary Ann and Sam Venable
