An exciting vision of the blossoming new role gardening plays for this generation and the next.

In The New Canadian Garden, Canada's gardening guru, 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. The New Canadian Garden is a must-have reference for anyone gardening in a Canadian climate.
MARK CULLEN is Canada's best-known gardener. His weekly column appears in the Toronto Star and 25 other newspapers. He enjoys spending time tending his own 10-acre garden in Stouffville, Ontario.
