Media reviews
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.
