When Southern Living The Grumpy Gardener speaks gardeners listen.
For more than 40 years Steve Bender has strived to make gardening fun. His writings about southern gardens and his hands in the dirt experiences are sought after by beginning and expert gardeners.
Steve is quoted often. Usually in distain tones since he coined the term “Crape Murder”.
His book Passalong Plants, co-authored with Felder Rushing, was named the best written garden book of 1994 by The Garden Writers of America
His new book, “The Grumpy Gardener,” is an amusing and informative guide to plants culling from a compilation of “Grumpy Gardener” blog posts, selected articles from Southern Living, mixed in with a lot of new stuff.
During his tenure at Southern Living, Steve edited a number of gardening books for Southerners, including The Southern Living Garden Book.
