Book Description
If you can garden well in Alaska, with its immense size and varied climates, you should be able to garden in any northern area, from Canada to Maine, from Norway to northern Oregon. This is a hands-on, how-to book of information which reveals the secrets of generations of experts in cold climate gardening. It provides Alaskans (whether cheechako or sourdough) with the special knowledge they need to succeed in their state, and other northern gardeners the techniques that will help them meet their own unique growing challenges, no matter where they live and garden.

The book is arranged in three parts; a section on planting basics for the beginning gardener, a more in-depth section dealing with specific problems encountered in the various areas in Alaska (like cold soil, premature bolting to seed, or heavy precipitation), and a final section packed full of techniques and tips for raising particular vegetables.

See the Table of Contents to see what Alaska garden information is included.
