Praise For…

"Whatever one’s garden’s status—a new yard, a landscape under renovation, or a flimsy flower bed that needs some fortification—this book offers cold-weather comfort that northern gardeners will warm to. Written by gloves-on horticulturists who live in Minnesota, the well-organized text scrimps nowhere." —Publishers Weekly

"This book will save novice gardeners years of trial-and-error disappointment, while seasoned gardeners will wish they’d had it years ago." —Booklist
