Tough and hardy evergreens, conifers offer interesting options for the home garden. These attractive trees come in all sizes and handsome colors. Garden writer Andrew Mikolajski tells of their virtues in this handy guide to popular varieties. The text is accompanied by excellent color photographs, illustrating the broad range in height of conifers from tall giants to spreading mounds. This guide features directions on how to select and plant trees as well as methods to grow conifers in containers or as hedges. The author wisely includes instructions on how to contend with tree problems and how to propagate by seed and cuttings.
