Y’all don’t need to read this. It’s just plain tacky, but a PR person told me I needed to do it. Therefore, for the sake of “link love”, which apparently means you stroke my back and I’ll stroke yours in the social media world, here are all the places that Deep Rooted Wisdom has some “online real estate”, which means somebody said something about it on the web.
Garden and Gun Deep Rooted Wisdom made their list of only three “must read”, plant books for the summer!
GardenRant! This is a very trendy, thoughtful gardening website.
New York Times Here is a mention of the book in a gardening article which featured our farm and gardens in photographs..

LowCountry Weekly I love this one because it was one of the first reviews, and it’s from one of my mentors, featured in Deep Rooted Wisdom in the chapter on design, from Beaufort, SC.
Coladaily.com This journalist interviewed me while I was distracted in an ICU waiting room at University Hospital. She captured my hopes for the book.
Free Times This interviewer has been such a great supporter of gardening for decades in Columbia.
The Nature of Things This is a blog about birding. It’s cool to recognize the connections between all things living.
Jasper The arts magazine that recognizes that garden-making is an art. There are so many people in the modern-art world who no longer understand this.
Publishers Weekly This is one of the few links on the Amazon review list.
It’s Not Work It’s Gardening! Here’s one from great plant and garden blogger from Saint Louis, Missouri.
I’ll try to keep this updated. And I wish I could include everyone who’s helped promote, given me photos to share, and, of course, stories to tell. But for now, I’ll just include this sweet picture of Tom who does all the behind-the-scenes work, including shipping a bunch of books.
