Native Plants For Your Maine Garden

Native Plants for Your Maine Garden is aimed at home gardeners interested in native flowering perennials, foliage perennials, grasses, groundcovers, shrubs, and trees to enrich their gardens and for their cold hardiness, disease resistance, and noninvasive characteristics. Author, Maureen Heffernan describes how to choose the right plants for varying locations and cope with shallow-ledge soils, coastal sea spray, boggy or moist soils, or woodland conditions, and which plants are least attractive to deer. This informative guidebook includes two sample garden designs one for a full-sun butterfly and bird native plant garden and one for a lightly shaded woodland-type border garden.

This book contained great information and gorgeous photos, but limited itself to only two sample garden plans. For this reason I can only give four stars, I would have liked more ideas (I have never planted a flower garden before).

The book is full of what is probably very helpful information, but I can't get to much of it. The text next to pictures is in a long column with arrows to proceed down (instead of simple swipe), but every time I try to arrow up or down I get the menu bars instead. If I try to continue pressing the arrow I instead get sent to a different part of the book on the the progress bar at the bottom. Double clicking on the picture nicely gives me a full page version of the picture, but I can't get at a LOT of the accompanying Text. The sample gardens would have been better with small pictures of the flowers next to the names. I recommend getting the book in print form, it will be less frustrating. There is a lot of useful information, but I felt like I was being lectured over and over about invasive plants. I'm just looking for a guide to help me plant my new Maine garden.

This is a well written book with interesting information. Very good photos. It does not include all plants, but it has a good selection. A good reference source for Maine plants.
