Overview

Tired of being lumped into the unwieldy category of a western garden? Frustrated by the lack of reliable, practical information about gardening in the Pacific Northwest? No longer! The Timber Press Guide to Gardening in the Pacific Northwest presents all the information a gardener—whether novice or expert—needs to keep their garden beautiful and thriving. With a combined 100 years of gardening experience in the Pacific Northwest, the authors clearly explain the unique challenges and joys of gardening in the region. By dividing the Pacific Northwest into seven subregions, they help readers to better understand the climatic and geographical factors that shape their gardens. This complete guide includes extensive profiles of plants that are ideally suited to the region, including perennials, ornamental grasses, bulbs, groundcovers, roses, shrubs, trees, and climbers. The month-by-month gardening calendar describes what weather patterns to expect, what's in bloom, and what garden tasks are best done in that month. With additional chapters detailing the most common gardening problems and recommendations for effective, nontoxic ways of dealing with them, this book is nothing short of essential.

Norm and Carol Hall share a lifelong passion for plants and gardening in the Pacific Northwest, which has been their home, background, context, and inspiration for a combined total of 116 years. In their 40 years as a couple, they have gardened extensively and organically in the Willamette Valley, along the Columbia River, on Vancouver Island, and on the Gulf Islands; between them, they are also familiar with gardening conditions in southern Oregon, Puget Sound, on the lower slopes of the Cascades, and along the Pacific Coast. Separately and together, they have contributed over 200 articles on both gardening and non-gardening topics to major magazines, including Canadian Gardening, Canadian Homes and Cottages, Gardens West, Good Times (The Canadian Magazine for Successful Retirement), Harrowsmith Country Life, and The Beaver (Canada's History Magazine). In the United States, their work has been featured in Horticulture and Open Spaces (Views from the Northwest).
