Another good source of information on cold climate gardening is the University of Minnesota Extension Service. Their online publications catalog is not organized for easy perusal, I’m afraid. Ornamental Grasses for Cold Climates is located under the Landscaping – Plant Selection. Roses for the North is under Flowers – Culture. It is probably better to use the search engine provided if you have a specific topic in mind, but it was easier to browse under their previous organization. Some of their more popular titles have free excerpts available for download, so it’s worth taking the time to see what they’ve got.

When dealing with frost it is always best to be paranoid. In the spring never think it is too late for one more frost to come. And in the fall never think it too early.
