Overview

Written by one of the region's most highly respected gardening experts, Minnesota & Wisconsin Getting Started Garden Guide is a plant recommendation guidebook geared exclusively toward gardeners located in these states. Author Melinda Myers shares her extensive gardening knowledge, highlighting her top picks for plants that will thrive in (or in spite of) the area's tough winters and other unique growing conditions, guaranteeing success for the gardener and home landscaper in Minnesota or Wisconsin. From soil and water to fertilization and pest management, Minnesota & Wisconsin Getting Started Garden Guide addresses all the gardening topics of concern to Minnesota and Wisconsin gardeners. Featured plant categories discuss annuals, bulbs, ferns and groundcovers, ornamental grasses, perennials, roses, shrubs, trees, turfgrasses, and vines. Each plant is showcased with detailed photography; 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. With proven, practical instructions presented through gorgeous imagery and adapted specially for the Minnesota and Wisconsin climate, Minnesota & Wisconsin Getting Started Garden Guide is your ticket to successful planting--whether you're in the Badger State or the Land of 10,000 Lakes.
