The Weather-Resilient Garden
The Weather-Resilient Garden, by Charles W. G. Smith (Storey, 2004), describes its contents as "a defensive approach to planning and landscaping." Garden plants are subject to all sorts of challenges from the weather -- snow, ice, wind, flood, heat, drought -- and this book shows you how to prevent problems before they happen. It also explains how to revive and repair plants that have been damaged.
