by Young, Carol L

Condition: See description

Self Published, 2005. Paper covers; spiral bound . 5th Edition. BINDING/CONDITION: laminated paper covers with a spiral binding; Very Good condition. This copy is Signed by the author, with a non-personalized inscription. Illustrated with black and white drawings by the author (cover art also by the author). This focuses on Northern California 'mountain gardening' between 2 to 7,000 feet elevation, where growing seasons are short and winters are cold. This area includes Mixed Conifer and Ponderosa Pine zones up to the Red Fir zone, but may also be helpful for people in borderline areas such as the Foothill Digger Pine type. It could also be used in similar areas that have snow. The author moved to Lake Almanor, California in 1972, and the family's first priority was a vegetable garden. She has a master's degree in Botany, but needed to learn about what grew in her new home. She studied the plants listed in the resource books, and noticed that most plants growing in Northern California between 2 to 7000 feet were categorized as being in USDA Zones 4, 5, 6 and 7. She limited the study to the 13 California counties where this applied. After creating her plant lists, she had local nursery owners evaluate and critique them. She also gathered published climate data for Northern California weather stations to see which environmental factors were influencing the plants. This date was used to make comparison charts for the Climate chapter in this book. Originally published in 1986, this has gone through several revisions. Printed by South Coast Printing and Graphics of Coos Bay, Oregon. about 11.25 inches tall by 9 inches wide 200 pages. References, index.
