Creating A Cottage Garden in CanadaBook - 2000
What could be more appealing-horticulturally speaking-than the innate charm of the English cottage-style garden? This style of gardening is practiced throughout Canada, with exuberant and colourful drifts of perennials and annuals intermingling with herbs, vegetables, and fruit trees. This book shows how to adapt the English cottage-style garden-sans thatched roof cottage and mossy stone walls-to the Canadian climate, with an emphasis on hardy native plants. Filled with engaging historical and cultural vignettes, Creating a Cottage Garden in Canada is an essential guide to this seamless blend of practical and ornamental gardening.
