Publisher Comments:

With over 30 years of gardening experience, renowned regional horticulturalist Melinda Myers brings you the perfect when-to, how-to, and which-plant guide for gardening in the Midwestern United States.
 
Meant for the more experienced intermediate to advanced gardener, Midwest Gardener’s Handbook is an all-inclusive resource guide featuring hundreds of proven plants—including winter-hardy choices—that are optimal for Midwestern gardeners. With the help of gorgeous photography and in-depth instructions, author Melinda Myers will teach you how to plant, prune, water, control pests, and continually care for your personal outdoor oasis. A helpful icon key highlights each featured plant’s benefits, along with its particular sun and shade requirements. Featured plant categories discuss annuals, bulbs, edibles, ferns and groundcovers, ornamental grasses, perennials, roses, shrubs, trees, turfgrasses, and vines. Each plant is showcased with specific advice on how, when, and where to plant; growing tips, such as watering requirements; and descriptions of routine care. Alongside these “nitty-gritty” aspects of planting and growing, Myers shares her inspiration for garden design, the various ways you can beautifully incorporate plants into your landscape, and her favorite cultivars and species. Even better, she provides twelve full months of when-to advice for each plant category, allowing you to successfully enjoy this peaceful pastime all year round. With proven, practical instructions adapted specially for the Midwestern climate, Midwest Gardener’s Handbook is your ticket to successful planting in America’s Heartland.
