New England Garden Book and I'm New

18 years ago


I'm new to this area -- [west]Peabody, MA. We've been here for 3 weeks and I'm completely overwhelmed. I'm a CA gal and used to my 11 1/2 month "grow practically anything I want" growing season. Right now I'm not even sure what is in the yard. Pine trees and hostas, mainly. And some straggly roses. I know I should be unpacking inside, but I'm really drawn to the yard...

Count on me to have lots of questions. The first one is this: is there a definitive book on New England gardens? I've used my Sunset guide for years in CA. Is there a Sunset guide for this area? Or something similar?

And I guess I should invest in a coat soon, too.
