Mark Cullen Digs Into Changes Reshaping Canadian Gardens in Latest Book

Gardening Guru Mark Cullen Celebrates a New Generation of Gardeners With His Book "The New Canadian Garden"

TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - February 23, 2016) - In The New Canadian Garden, Canada's favourite gardener, Mark Cullen, explores new trends that are redefining today's gardening experiences. Many of us are utilizing small urban spaces -- balconies, patios, and even rooftops -- and growing our own fruits, vegetables and herbs, both at home and through community gardens.

Mark has lots of suggestions about which crops will work best for your particular space and how to attract birds, bees, and butterflies to your garden. And he combines the best practical information with an insightful approach to help improve your gardening skills. 

Topics include:

  • Why we grow food
  • Understanding and maximizing your space
  • Yard, patio, balcony and rooftop gardens
  • The right plant for the right space
  • Harvesting and more!

The New Canadian Garden is a must-have reference for anyone gardening in a Canadian climate.
