Introduction to Conifers - Growing Conifer Trees and Shrubs in Your Garden
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.
