Join us for the launch of the latest edition of The Prairie Garden: Flowering Shrubs, with a Special Feature on Roses. Editor Linda Dietrick, guest editor Philip Ronald, and contributor Sandy Venton will introduce the book and give you a taste of what you can learn from it.
Since our last shrubs edition (2009 – still available), hundreds of exciting new flowering shrubs have come on the market. Our roses edition of 2008 is sold out, but readers keep asking for information on roses, especially new ones like the Canadian Artists and 49th Parallel series. It’s time for a fresh look at these beautiful plants. Aimed at gardeners of all skill levels in the short-season gardening zones of Canada and the US, this edition contains over forty articles on the theme and another fifteen on general gardening topics, all contributed by experienced gardeners and experts.
Guest editor Dr. Philip Ronald divides his time between teaching ornamental horticulture at the University of Manitoba, managing Riverbend Orchards, a 20-acre fruit farm, and supporting research and marketing at Jeffries Nurseries.
