About this book

What do you do when a young moose calf wants to dine on your freshly planted Lady's Mantle for lunch? What plants can handle a summer of nearly endless sun? How do you harness the wild beauty of the north for your own backyard? There's a Moose in My Garden is the first book to tackle these questions and more with practical, user-friendly advice from an award-winning gardener. Adams provides helpful tips for Far Northern gardeners on how to design and implement successful landscape environments. There's a Moose in My Garden outlines the entire planning and planting process, covering such aspects as handling low-angled sun, soft light, expansive vistas, and a cool climate.
