The New Ontario GardenerBook - 2001
Since its first printing ten years ago, The Ontario Gardener has been an indispensable reference. This revision adds new techniques and information, descriptions of many new plants that have become available in the last few years and new chapters on rock and container gardening. Author Trevor Cole, former curator of the Dominion Arboretum in Ottawa and veteran instructor of home landscaping courses, provides crucial information on hardiness (including a zone map), plant size, flowering time, and shade tolerance, while offering friendly and helpful advice based on nearly thirty five years of experience of gardening in Ontario. Information is presented in a clear and orderly manner, featuring illustrated instructions, garden plan layouts, suggested readings and 40 pages of colour photographs. Whether you are looking for inspiration or you just need help in executing your own gardening plans, The New Ontario Gardener will serve as an excellent guide and reference book.
