When you live in a colder climate there are a few things you need to be aware of when setting up a garden.Yes, the weather is colder but you need to know about the frosts and snows of winter and what they will do to your plants. Many plants will cope well in these areas and include deciduous trees and shrubs, herbaceous perennials and bulbs. Other will turn black and never be seen again. A lot of gardening is trial and error anywhere you live but plants here need to be frost hardy and able to cope with snow cover.Learn about growing vegetables and getting a head start and lengthening the growing season, growing your own stone fruits and berries and having colour in your garden all year round.There are a variety of ground covers, shrubs and annuals that all do well in colder climates including plants like Ajuga, violets, hebes, azaleas, rhododendrons, camellias and of course roses.There are tips for protecting young plants, lists of vegies to grow and some plant descriptions of some favourite and cold loving plants. Enjoy the photographs of healthy plants growing happily in the cooler climates.
