Description

The only garden guide with a plant selection as diverse as New England weather. To say that the climate in the northeastern United States is diverse would be an understatement. We've seen football games played in blizzards, been caught in jungle-like rain showers, and shaded ourselves from the humid summer rays. With ever-changing conditions, the thought of growing a healthy home garden can be daunting . . . but with such a varied landscape comes an equally varied mix of wonderful plants, including many native ones. You simply need to know which plants belong where, and in New England Getting Started Garden Guide, lifelong New Englander and Master Gardener Charlie Nardozzi tells you exactly that. Featuring more than 150 plants across six states - Connecticut, Massachusetts, Maine, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont - this straightforward manual makes it easy to research, choose, plant, and care for species handpicked exclusively for their ability to thrive in climates across New England. The plants within, organized alphabetically by plant type and common name, are each displayed with a full-color photograph, pronunciation guide, thorough planting and care instructions, and recommendations for companion plants that you can place nearby. This book is complete with a clever set of icons denoting sun/shade requirements and plant perks, and it even contains official color-coded USDA zone maps. From the splendor of fall-blooming asters to the beloved northeastern hydrangeas, New England Getting Started Garden Guide is your one-stop reference for growing plants that love living there as much as you do.
