The Southern Garden History Society is pleased to make available a variety of additional works which help stimulate interest in Southern garden and landscape history. Several are society publications alone, while The New Louisiana Gardener represents a joint endeavor with the LSU Press. The society is also pleased to offer proceedings from three Restoring Southern Gardens and Landscapes conferences. These contain collections of essays by an array of well-regarded scholars and speakers.
