Trees and Shrubs for Northern Gardens

New Revised Edition

Author: Leon C. Snyder, Richard T. Isaacson

Leon Snyder’s Trees and Shrubs for Northern Gardens was originally published in 1980 and quickly became the standard reference to trees, shrubs, and woody vines that thrive in northern climates. Weekend gardeners and professional horticulturalists have used Snyder’s work to design gardens and landscapes in many areas of North America, including the Upper Midwest, Northern New England, the Plains States, and most of Canada.

This long-awaited new edition combines the technical information that made the first so valuable to the career horticulturalist with a new, practical approach that makes it essential for the recreational northern gardener. Sections on how to plan a garden are followed by advice on how to best plant and maintain trees and shrubs. The largest section of this new edition is an easy-to-use guide to the many varieties of trees, shrubs, and vines that will grow in the north. Here gardeners will learn the origins of various plants, how they can best be maintained, where and how they will grow, whether they will produce fruit or flowers, and how they will respond to changes in weather.

Trees and Shrubs for Northern Gardens features many remarkable illustrations, including both contemporary and historical line drawings. In addition, one hundred stunning full-color photographs demonstrate the beauty of these plants in full bloom. Quotations from famous horticultural and natural history writers link today’s gardeners with fellow gardening enthusiasts across the centuries. This indispensable new edition is certain to become the standard reference for gardeners of the north.
