An all-in-one guide designed for northern-tier gardens from coast to coast

Growing Shrubs and Trees in Cold Climates provides northern-tier gardeners from coast to coast with an incredible range of choices, no matter what their skill level.

Part I profiles 50 plant groups best suited to gardens in zones 1 to 5. Each plant has been tested for hardiness over a period of at least 10 years--and has proved hardy to no less than -30 degrees F. Readers will easily be able to select shrubs and trees that produce wonderful fragrant flowers and those that bloom more than once in the spring and summer seasons.

Part 2 covers the basics of growing shrubs and small trees, with special attention on solving problems that occur in cooler climates.

I thought the book was interesting, it's helping me with my plant ID project for the master gardener course. I prefer less photo's and more info and this book gives that! A must read for any future master gardeners. Enjoy

Little visuals, good information on the subject but not a book that I would go back to for information.
