Publisher's Summary

Do you wish you could grow mangoes, coffee, oranges, and other delicious tropical plants but find yourself limited by a less-than-tropical climate? If you long for key lime pies at Christmas or homegrown bananas at breakfast, you're not alone! Expert gardener and mad scientist David the Good fought for years to figure out how grow tropical plants hundreds of miles outside their natural climate range, and he succeeded!

In Push the Zone: The Good Guide to Growing Tropical Plants Beyond the Tropics, David the Good shares his successes and failures in expanding plant ranges, and equips you with the knowledge you need to add a growing zone or two to your own backyard. Based on original research done in North Florida, Push the Zone is useful for northern gardeners as well. Discover microclimates in your yard, use the thermal mass of walls to grow impossible plants, and uncover growing secrets that will change your entire view of what can grow where!

Featuring a foreword by Dr. David Francko, the author of Palms Won't Grow Here and Other Myths

David the Good does it again.

I love David’s books. If you get one and like it buy them all. His books are must have for Zone 10/9/8 gardeners. The principles from his writings could be used for any growing zone. Can’t wait for his next project.
