New Book: Garden Variety – a Novel

We’re delighted to announce a new read for garden nerds everywhere: Christy’s debut novel, Garden Variety. The book was originally slated for publication on March 29, 2022. But last week the publisher, William Morrow/Harper Collins, moved the release date to February 1.

That means gardenerds can read Garden Variety sooner! And Pre-order is available now. Here’s the scoop:

Set in a community garden in Los Angeles, CA, Garden Variety weaves gardening lessons and life lessons into a tapestry of story. We follow an eclectic cast of characters—from power-hungry elders, to jaded singles navigating romance—through California’s growing seasons.

Then a cranky neighbor threatens the community garden’s existence. Can this group of disparate Angelinos come together to save the garden in time?

    Exciting! I just requested it on NetGalley–if I don’t get approved I’ll definitely be ordering a copy! I’ve been meaning to have you back on the podcast to chat about your mini fruit garden book—will definitely want to chat about this, too!

      Hi Misti! Thanks for checking out Garden Variety on NetGalley. I’m sure they’ll approve you. I look forward to your review. And yes! let’s chat about Grow Your Own Mini Fruit Garden. I’m still answering questions about fruit trees and berries (it is bare root planting season for warm-winter gardeners, after all)!
