The Canadian Gardener is a must for anyone gardening in Canada. Filled with beautiful colour photographs and a wealth of practical information, The Canadian Gardener is both the perfect inspiration and gift for hands-on gardeners and garden-lovers alike, certain to go from the coffee table to the garden and back again.
The Canadian Gardener is a comprehensive guidebook for both the expert and beginning gardener, filled with indispensable gardening tips, design suggestions, plant listings, zone guides and solutions to many gardening problems.
There are 208 pages of stunning, full-colour photographs from Canadian gardens. Taken especially for this book, these beautiful pictures feature gardens from across the country, and illustrate the practical advice given in the text.
A special section of the book discusses Canada's different hardiness zones, indicating what plants can survive under certain light and temperature conditions. The Canadian Gardener also encourages the Canadian gardeners to consider the microclimates which exist in his or her own garden, created by such things as soil, prevailing winds, sunlight, and the size and number of trees.
Marjorie Harris and photographer Tim Saunders criss-crossed the country taking hundreds of pictures and talking to dozens of Canadian gardeners about their ideas, problems, solutions and gardening advice.
