Cold-Climate Gardening: How to Extend Your Growing Season by at Least 30 Days Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Early and late frosts, arctic winds, and inhospitable terrain are just a few of the obstacles facing those who garden in the icebox region of the United States and Canada. Lewis Hill has spent a lifetime in northern Vermont and is undaunted by the challenges of weather and climate.

Cold-Climate Gardening is an invaluable guide for northern gardeners, showing how to protect vulnerable plantings, warm up the soil earlier, and choose species appropriate to your area. Not just for those who live in the snow belt, this book will also be useful to those who garden in microclimates (such as deep valleys or hillsides) or for those who want to extend their gardening season in any climate. Horticulture has deemed this "an immensely useful book...written with style, wit, and clarity."

Synopsis:

Adding 30 days to the growing season is a big claim — a few pages into this book and cold-climate gardeners will be convinced.
