A Cool Classic

Originally published almost a decade ago and a half ago as The Harrowsmith Northern Gardener, Jennifer Bennett's first book quickly became a classic. Gardeners who regarded Bennett's words as the only available wisdom on organic growing in climate-challenged sites often carried their well worn copies right into the vegetable patch. Today, gardening has earned a place as one of the continent's most popular pastimes, and with this completely redesigned and expanded edition, Bennett takes us with confidence into the next century of home gardening.

The New Northern Gardener features not only an enhanced herb section and updated sources but an all-new chapter on perennial and annual flowers, including an annotated listing of more than 100 hardy species that will flourish in a northern garden. Like a trusted old friend who has gained fresh insight, The New Northern Gardener will serve as the leading reference for planting and maintaining vegetable, herb and flower gardens across Canada and the United States for years to come.
