High Altitude Western Gardening is an excellent guide to gardening in the 6,000-foot-plus altitude of the Rocky Mountain region of the western U.S. Author Marilyn Quinn reveals what plants to choose and when to plant them, and offers valuable information on how to care for plants at high altitude where temperatures can fluctuate wildly at any time of any season, and a short growing season can wreak havoc on green thumb dreams. She explains how to deal with stubborn soil, hungry moose and other critters, snow in July, "thin" soil, unexpected frosts, and every other challenge that one encounters in rugged mountain climes. Get the guide that proves it is possible to grow a wide variety of plants in a mountain climate and to grow them well, in spite of Mother Nature!
