Gardening with native plants has lots of advantages, not only for your yard but also for the ecosystem. What could be better than a beautiful, low-maintenance yard that preserves biodiversity and withstands the prairie climate? For all western Canadian gardeners wanting to reap the benefits of native plants, Lyndon Penner provides the definitive guide for Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba. With his usual wit and wisdom, Lyndon shares the basics of shopping for, propagating, and designing your garden with native plants. He also provides a list of more than 100 of his favourite native plants prairie gardeners should consider, along with tips on how to grow them. You'll find combinations of plants you can use based on your gardening goals, whether it's creating a garden of drought resistant plants, one filled with edible fruit and flowers, or one designed to attract wildlife. Finally, garden experts from across the prairies will inspire you with tales of their secrets and successes from their own experiences with native plants.
