Table of Contents Introduction to Conifers Introduction Growing Conifers Tips before Choosing Your Conifers The Scots Pine [Pinus species] Growing a Scots Pine Successfully Silver [white] Firs The Douglas Fir Spruce [Picea] Cypress – Cupressus Junipers Cedars Planting Your Conifers Conclusion Author Bio Publisher Introduction The moment I talk about conifers, your immediate visualization of this genus is going to be of a stately fir tree in the winter, or a pine tree. For a majority of us, conifers, start and stop at fir trees. However, the term “conifer”means the wife’s army of large, medium, small and large cone producing plants. These include the Cedars, the Pines, the Larches, the Junipers, the Cypress, the Spruce and the Silver Firs. Only a full-fledged botanist could do justice to the wide range of variety of all these plants, but this book is going to give you an understanding of conifers in general and how they can be stately additions to your garden. Most of these plants are evergreens, and that is the reason why if you were living in the 19th century, your garden would have been overflowing with a surfeit of these plants.

With blue, green, and gold foliage and shapes ranging from spiky to weeping, conifers have the potential to be garden design stars. But they are commonly misused in gardens and landscapes, leading to looming spruces squashed against a house or rows of kettledrum-shaped yews along a sidewalk. When used correctly and creatively, conifers can be star players in creating beautiful, long-lasting plant combinations or serene backyard havens. Designing with Conifers shows readers exactly how to choose the best conifers for specific needs. Chapters cover shape, color, and conifers for specific sites and conditions, including front gardens, hedges and screens, topiary, dwarf conifers, shade gardens, Asian-style gardens, bonsai, and miniature railroad gardens. Also includes useful appendices that list of conifers for various problems and conditions, like conifers for areas plagued by deer and the best conifers for Christmas trees and Southern gardens. Each section is enlivened with gorgeous color photographs. Whatever landscape situation or challenge a gardener designer faces, Designing with Conifers shows how to make the best choice from this beautiful, useful, and versatile group of plants.
