Plant selection and garden style are deeply influenced by where we are gardening. To successfully grow a range of beautiful ornamental plants, every gardener has to know the specifics of the region’s climate, soil, and geography.
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 mosquitos. TThe practical and 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.

I especially enjoyed this book for the great photographs. As an amateur gardener (emphasis on the amateur), I am inspired by the design of gardens. The terrific photo essays on a number of stellar gardens gave me some great ideas for my own garden. And the close-up shots of numerous plants are an excellent reference. This is a very useful book for both amateurs and more serious gardeners.
I really like the way this book is set up -- very logical and organized, which I need, lol. It addresses the basics, and the true foundations of a great northern garden (which is essential) before getting into more specifics. I found the excellent photography really useful to me, allowing me to see possibilities in combinations and settings as well as how each plant looks by itself. I highly recommend it!
I can hardly call myself a gardener, but this book has expanded my knowledge and set me on the path. As a transplanted southerner, I never quite made friends with the array of plants in the northeast and this lovely book has been quite helpful. Great photos!
