Book Description

April 1 2003
Each year, as you prepare your garden, you know that sooner or later - in the spring or in the fall or in both - Jack Frost will pay you a visit.

Knowing that, what can you do at the start of the gardening season to prepare for those frosty nights?

In this book, all aspects of frost are explained to help gardeners start their planting earlier in the spring and extend their growing season later in the fall.

You'll learn what weather systems produce frost, how it damages, or enhances, the flavor of your plants, how to read your garden's microclimate, and how to design your garden so you can work with frost, instead of against it.

The informative text is paired with beautiful full-color photos of useful frost protection techniques and wonderful gardens in their full frosty splendor.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cold Climate Gardening Jan. 22 2004
Format:Hardcover
Living in the Pacific Northwest, I've got some nerve reviewing a book about frost. Yes, we do have frost here, but it isn't the problem here that it is in northern New York State where Philip Harnden lives.
So, for all the gardeners in the colder regions of the US and Canada, here is a really useful book that explains how to outwit the weather and extend the spring and fall seasons. The writer is concerned primarily with the kitchen garden, mostly vegetables. You won't find much about flowers in here, although much of the advice would apply to most plants. What you WILL find is ways that determined gardeners even in New Hampshire manage to harvest at least a few vegetables all winter long. Even in Maine one couple enjoys a "four season harvest". An added pleasure in this book is the well-selected photography of plants and gardens in frosty weather.
If frost is a problem in your garden you'll enjoy reading this practical and down-to-earth book. This writer has been there, done that when it comes to cold climate gardening. The book is well-researched, well-written and contains a goodly number of resources for further exploration.
