Shrubs and Vines for Atlantic Canada: Choose the best plants for your location

Description

Written specifically for Atlantic Canada, this guide gives you the tools and information you need to select, place, and care for the shrubs and climbers best suited to your garden.

Shrubs and vines make up the skeleton of a garden, providing structure, defining spaces, and contributing to privacy or windbreaks. Some are chosen for flamboyant floral displays, others for colourful leaves. But they can be tricky to grow and maintain in this region’s climate and soil conditions.

With over 40 years of gardening experience in Atlantic Canada, author Todd Boland has deep expertise in overcoming these challenges to build spectacular gardens. In Shrubs and Vines for Atlantic Canada, he shares this knowledge, along with hundreds of his own full-colour photographs to inspire and inform.

This comprehensive guide includes:

·  At-a-glance lists of the best plants for acidic soils, seaside gardens, shady areas, and more

·  Detailed insight into the best available cultivars for your zone

·  Tips on where to plant each species, and how to avoid common pests and pitfalls

The perfect companion to Boland’s Favourite Perennials for Atlantic Canada, this guide will set you up for gardening success, no matter where you live.
