Harrowsmith Perennial Ga

Patrick Lima, Author Camden House Publishing (Ontario, CA) $19.95 (0p) ISBN 978-0-920656-76-1
Lima's garden, Larkwhistle, stars in the beautiful color photos that illustrate his guide and prove that extreme cold is no deterrent to growing things. The author's home is in Ontario, where he keeps flowers blooming from early spring until late fall, creating living pictures in shades ranging from the palest to the most vivid. The instructions begin with the basics: assess the environment realistically, choose perennials (bulbs and seed) that will thrive in the climate zone and design borders and plots to accommodate the selections. Drawings emphasize key points in the text, which provides information on buying supplies in addition to a definition of terms and an encyclopedic index. (February)
