From Calgary, there are two new releases in the handsome series of gardening guides focused on growing conditions in the Prairies. Created by certified master gardeners Janet Melrose and Sheryl Normandeau, the latest two editions are The Prairie Gardener's Go-to for Seeds and The Prairie Gardener's Go-to for Small Spaces.
The Prairie Garden is annual non-profit publication "dedicated to the advancement of horticulture in the northern Prairies." The 2021 edition of The Prairie Garden focuses on flowering shrubs, especially roses.
The ambition of authors Monica Wiedel-Lubinski and Karen Madigan is to encourage more families to get outdoors so children can discover that nature is fun. In Nature Play Workshop for Families, they've provided a practical guide to 40+ outdoor learning experiences in all seasons to spark a connection to nature vital for children's healthy growth and development.
In this down-to-earth guide, Mastering the Art of Flower Gardening, Matt Mattus curates a collection of plant suggestions for spring and summer blooms, both annuals and biennials.
