Front Cover
Timber Press, 1995 - Gardening - 285 pages
The practical, hands-on approach, along with detailed information covering site selection, soil requirements, plant selection, design use in the landscape, planting and care, and diseases, is just what the gardener needs to make all the right decisions and to grow luxuriant, beautifully blossoming specimens. The author provides climatic data for North American regions, designated by the standard USDA Hardiness Zones, as well as for selected locations around the world. For each area, he supplies a list of tested and recommended species/cultivars which should perform superbly. In addition he gives a wealth of technical information on diseases and insects derived from data collected at state university experimental stations and by the USDA. For experienced rhododendron growers, this volume offers information on new techniques in propagation and cultural practices, as well as material on nursery growing, hybridizing, and flower show competition.
