Synopsis: Although Rhode Island is the smallest of the 50 states, residents do not necessarily garden in the same conditions nor share the same hardiness zone. "The Rhode Island Gardener's Companion" addresses the issues of soils, salt, wind, weather, and other challenges. For example, proven tips for gardening on saltwater come from Blithewold Mansion, Gardens & Arboretum, one of only two arboreta in the country situated on saltwater. With this book Rhode Islander gardeners will learn how to lengthen the growing season through careful plant selection, developing microclimates, and using season-extending products. Chapters on lawns, vegetables, flowers, and trees give detailed cultivation information and list specific varieties of plants proven to flourish in different areas of Little Rhody.

From the Back Cover: Grow a garden bountiful and beautiful
The Rhode Island Gardener’s Companion is the only guide focused on the challenges of cultivating a successful garden in the Ocean State. Whether you are an experienced green thumb or a curious novice, whether you live in silty sands of Narragansett Basin, out on windswept Block Island, or among the granite ledges of Foster and Burrillville, this easy-to-understand guide helps you grow plentiful vegetables, abundant flowers, and lush lawns. Learn all about:
What’s in your Rhode Island soil and how to improve it
How to stretch your growing season
The best plant varieties for your urban climate
Tips from accomplished Rhode Island gardeners how to deal with challenging hilly, seaside, or city sites
Ways to combat insect pests, plant diseases, and invasive plants
Local sources of hands-on assistance with gardening questions
