Midwest Gardener's Handbook


Your Complete Guide
Select Plan Plant Maintain Problem-Solve

After you have some basic experience, there's still plenty to learn. Experienced gardeners know this to be true: No matter where in the Midwest you live, gardening success depends on knowing not only how, but when to perform certain tasks. You also know that what you plant is critical; you must avoid the poor choices that are touted as "good" but that are really pest ridden, fussy, invasive, or just not right for our climate. Author Melinda Myers is an expert on gardening in the Midwest, and she gives it to you straight.
