About this book

It's no secret that the post-glacial soils of Indiana are some of the most fertile that the midwestern United States has to offer. If you're lucky enough to live there – be it on the shores of Lake Michigan in Gary, nestled along the Ohio River in Evansville, or in a small town near one of the state's 1 000-plus lakes – you've found yourself in some of the nation's best gardening country. In Indiana Getting Started Garden Guide, internationally renowned gardening expert and Indiana native Shawna Coronado presents foolproof planting advice for over 150 species, handpicked for their ability to flourish in the Hoosier State.

Organized alphabetically by plant type and common name, Indiana Getting Started Garden Guide's format makes it as simple to come upon plants you've never heard of as to look up your old favorites. Every species – from annuals and perennials to shrubs, natives, and trees – is featured with gorgeous full-color photography, a name pronunciation guide, instructions for planting and care, and a list of ideal companion plants. A smart set of icons acts as a quick reference for sun and shade requirements and plant-specific benefits, and a color-coded USDA map lets you find your specific plant hardiness zone. So whether you're craving the colorful fall pop of burning bush or the springtime splendor of Siberian squill, Indiana Getting Started Garden Guide is your manual for harnessing that beautiful Indiana countryside.
