Winter Gardening in the Maritime Northwest by Binda Colebrook, 2012

Reviewed by: Brian Thompson
Review date: 2013-01-01

Winter gardening book jacket Binda Colebrook is on her fifth edition (the first from 1977) of the classic "Winter Gardening in the Maritime Northwest," and it's still a must for any serious food gardener. The emphasis is on crops that will grow throughout the year, so no tomatoes or corn, but instead you'll discover many options that are really better suited for our mild climate. There is much emphasis on ways to reduce the impact of freezes, heavy rains, and cold winds, but Colebrook is great at encouraging experimentation even if your property doesn't have perfect conditions. An excellent reference section completes the book.

Excerpted from the Winter 2013 Arboretum Bulletin.
