Wildflowers of Nova Scotia: Field Guide Is Celebrated With Book Launch Events in Halifax
Halifax, N.S. – Nature lovers, gardeners—and those who aspire to be—will all appreciate Boulder Publications’ latest release, Wildflowers of Nova Scotia: Field Guide by Todd Boland.
Now available online and in stores for $34.95, this fabulous new book, which took two years to assemble, offers readers detailed descriptions and over 900 colour photos of the 700-plus wildflower species growing across this province. The book is designed as a quick-reference field guide with indexed sections by colour that make it easy for anyone to look up a plant they find in their own backyard or favourite nature trail, and to learn more about it from an expert.
Wildflowers of Nova Scotia is being released during a gardening trend toward native plants, which often require less attention, watering and fertilizing than some of their exotic non-native cousins. Many gardeners are looking for expert advice, like that provided in this field guide, to help them grow attractive varieties that are likely to thrive because they are adapted to Nova Scotia’s climate and soil conditions.
Todd Boland is from St. John’s, where he is the research horticulturalist at the Memorial University of Newfoundland Botanical Garden. Boland has written about and lectured on various aspects of horticulture and native plants internationally. Wildflowers of Nova Scotia is his fourth book; he is also the author of the popular Trees and Shrubs of the Maritimes: Field Guide.
