Growing the Northeast Garden
I can't recall a book that takes such an in-depth look at gardening in our region.…An inspirational resource, with an exciting array of real-world examples.
Steve Aitken, editor, Fine Gardening
Gardeners in the northeast are lucky—the regular summer rain, gorgeous summer blooms, and stunning fall color make it an ideal place to garden. But there are drawbacks, like hot and humid summers, bitterly cold winters, and mosquitoes. To successfully grow a range of beautiful ornamental plants, you need to understand all these aspects, and more. The practical yet beautiful Growing the Northeast Garden starts with a comprehensive overview of the weather and geography of the area, along with regionally specific advice on zones, microclimates, soil, pests, and maintenance. Profiles of the best trees, shrubs, perennials, annuals, and bulbs offer hundreds of plant suggestions, along with complete information on growth and care. For home gardeners in Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, southern Quebec and Montreal, southeast Ontario and Ottawa, and the Maritime Provinces.
