Ohio University Press follow-up to bestselling native plants guide gets garden experts’ attention

It’s the season for sprucing up the yard. Garden writers for both the Columbus Dispatch (http://www.dispatch.com/entertainmentlife/20170514/gardening-midwestern-native-trees-and-shrubs-great-for-growers) and Cleveland.com (http://realestate.cleveland.com/homeideas/2017/05/make_the_right_choices_in_your.html#incart_river_index) recently highlighted a new Ohio University Press book, Midwestern Native Shrubs and Trees:

Gardening Alternatives to Nonnative Species. (http://www.ohioswallow.com/book/Midwestern+Native+Shrubs+and+Trees).

Both newspapers laud the contributions of the book. Authors Charlotte Adelman and Bernard L. Schwartz provide a comprehensive selection of native alternatives that look similar or identical to a range of nonnative ornamental and require similar growing conditions. The authors have made it their mission to convert backyards to native habitats, so that they can better support North American birds and insects. The book is a companion to award-winning The Midwestern Native Garden: An Illustrated Guide (http://www.ohioswallow.com/book/The+Midwestern+Native+Garden). Both are available wherever books are sold.
