The third edition of Canadian Gardener’s Guide, edited by Lorraine Johnson, is being in March 2019, just in time for prime gardening season. Last updated in 2015, the expanded edition, published by DK Canada, includes several new features, such as cold frame gardening, rain gardens and backyard homesteading.
Originally published in Great Britain, the Canadian version is edited by Johnson to reflect Canada’s particular growing conditions. Plants are labelled with Canadian hardiness zones and a section on native plants, as well as numerous planting schemes, diagrams, design ideas, advice on pests and diseases, and more than 1,000 photos make this a useful reference book for new to experienced gardeners.
Johnson is the author of numerous gardening books including 100 Easy-to-Grow Native plants for Canadian Gardens and is a regular speaker.
Canadian Gardener’s Guide 3rd edition, editor Lorraine Johnson, is published by DK Canada.
