Northern gardeners face challenges that authors of most gardening books rarely confront-severe winters, unpredictable rainfall, alkaline soil, and short growing seasons. Gardening in the Upper Midwest has tips and advice to overcome these obstacles and more. All aspects of gardening in this region are discussed: vegetables and fruits, landscaping, lawn care, trees, shrubs, perennials, and annual flowers. Specific descriptions and useful lists of species hardy in northern climates are provided to help gardeners make appropriate plant selections.
