Garden Making is giving away three copies of the new revised third edition of Lorraine Johnson’s book, 100 Easy-to-Grow Native Plants for Canadian Gardens, being released in February by Douglas & McIntyre. This popular compilation of native plants is a testament to Lorraine’s expertise as well as a sign that interest in the subject is strong.
The draw closed Feb. 28, 2017. The three winners were randomly selected from 1,048 entries. We’ve confirmed their eligibility and are sending out their books:
- Bev H. of Surrey, British Columbia
- Catherine S. of Tweed, Ontario
- Maureen A. of Wasaga Beach, Ontario
Plant names have been updated and “sections on wildlife have been substantially enlarged to include details about the interactions and interdependencies between native plants and native bees, butterflies and other beneficial insects and pollinators,” she writes in the forward. Photos by Andrew Leyerle along with detailed descriptions of plants and suggestions for companion plants make this a useful and approachable book for those eager to introduce more natives into their home garden. Quick reference charts also make it easy to choose candidates for specific conditions, such as deep shade, meadows and moist areas.
The draw is now closed.
