Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

This book is for the active gardener yearning for continued intelligent, informative counsel. Weather-resilient planting is discussed in terms of all types of plants that have been proven--in the author's own garden--to withstand such extreme situations as dry shade or hail. She is a veritable fount of horticultural wisdom, presenting a range of topics that encompasses far more than simply weather resilience. The most eye-opening facet of this book (and one sure to intrigue avid gardeners) is the wealth of references to unusual plant varieties not found in most gardening books. Alice Joyce
