Publisher Comments:

Tired of being lumped into the unwieldy category of a western garden? Frustrated by the lack of reliable, practical information about gardening in the Pacific Northwest? No longer! The Timber Press Guide to Gardening in the Pacific Northwest presents all the information a gardener—whether novice or expert—needs to keep their garden beautiful and thriving. With a combined 100 years of gardening experience in the Pacific Northwest, the authors clearly explain the unique challenges and joys of gardening in the region. By dividing the Pacific Northwest into seven subregions, they help readers to better understand the climatic and geographical factors that shape their gardens. This complete guide includes extensive profiles of plants that are ideally suited to the region, including perennials, ornamental grasses, bulbs, groundcovers, roses, shrubs, trees, and climbers. The month-by-month gardening calendar describes what weather patterns to expect, what's in bloom, and what garden tasks are best done in that month. With additional chapters detailing the most common gardening problems and recommendations for effective, nontoxic ways of dealing with them, this book is nothing short of essential.

About the Author

Norm and Carol Hall share a lifelong passion for plants and gardening in the Pacific Northwest, which has been their home, background, context, and inspiration for a combined total of 116 years. In their 40 years as a couple, they have gardened extensively and organically in the Willamette Valley, along the Columbia River, on Vancouver Island, and on the Gulf Islands; between them, they are also familiar with gardening conditions in southern Oregon, Puget Sound, on the lower slopes of the Cascades, and along the Pacific Coast. Separately and together, they have contributed over 200 articles on both gardening and non-gardening topics to major magazines, including Canadian Gardening, Canadian Homes and Cottages, Gardens West, Good Times (The Canadian Magazine for Successful Retirement), Harrowsmith Country Life, and The Beaver (Canada's History Magazine). In the United States, their work has been featured in Horticulture and Open Spaces (Views from the Northwest).

I thought I was a pretty decent amateur gardener, but this book brought my gardening up to a whole new level.

First of all, it is a book for Oregon, Washington and British Columbia, not just the whole of the West Coast (which varies from place to place, just a weeeeee bit) which can be difficult to find. Most books have a section, a small section, on the Northwest. Having an entire AWESOME book dedicated to our area is amazing.

The way it is organized is great, you have everything you need to know about plants, soil conditions, even weather - and more - for many different areas of the Northwest - they don't just say "Northwest" and really mean urban areas. I was able to help my grandmother with some gardening woes, and she lives in Eastern Oregon.

The best part, though, is that I was able to actually rely on it for information and go back to it. I did not just flip through it, look at some pretty pictures and put it up on my bookshelf to collect dust.

It is a book I really do use, and struggle to keep dirt off of when I take it out in the garden!
