  Garden Bookworm editor's notes:  
An all-in-one guide designed for northern-tier gardens from coast to coast

Growing Shrubs and Trees in Cold Climates provides northern-tier gardeners from coast to coast with an incredible range of choices, no matter what their skill level.

Part One profiles 50 plant groups best suited to gardens in zones 1 to 5. Each plant has been tested for hardiness over a period of at least 10 years -- and has proved hardy to no less than -30 degrees F. Readers will easily be able to select shrubs and trees that produce wonderful fragrant flowers and those that bloom more than once in the spring and summer seasons.

Part Two covers the basics of growing shrubs and small trees, with special attention on solving problems that occur in cooler climates.

As a denizen of zone 3/4, this book is a valuable addition to my botanical library. I found the species & cultivar reviews at the end of each listing to be extremely helpful in selecting plant material that is likely to do well in my challenging (and so often in garden writing, neglected) climate.
