"Traditional knowledge about first and last frosts, likely temperature and precipitation patterns and the usual timing of pest outbreaks is increasingly unreliable"..."Plants don't care what the climate was 30 years ago; they thrive or fail based on the climate now"
The Arbor Day Foundation and the Ameican Horticulture Society both take issue with the (slow-moving) USDA's, well-respected 'Hardiness Zone Map' - "significant portions of many states have shifted at least one hardiness zone...some areas around the country have even warmed two full zones"
This is a thought-provoking and wonderful addition to the 'Brooklyn Botanic Garden Guides for a Greener Planet'.
Hard to believe it's barely 120 pages (almost 100 beautiful photos and illustrations) and dozens and dozens of links and resources.
Timely, current and very, very useful. (and HOPEFUL!)
"Gardeners, with their intimate connection to the natural world, have a unique opportunity to demonstate how to transform concern over climate change into effective action"
