The increasing popularity of heirloom vegetables and plants demonstrates that the next generation of gardeners seeks the sense of accomplishment and joy that comes from growing plants at home. This book provides insight into gardening traditions, time-tested how-to advice for gardening in the North, and accurate information to help today's gardeners grow fruits, vegetables and flowers successfully.
