The 2011 edition ofThe Prairie Garden,Western Canada’s only gardening annual, is out a little earlier than usual in time for Christmas gift giving this year.
The featured theme this year is Healthy Gardening with articles from horticultural writers who explore both the health of the garden itself as well as the benefits of gardening to both the gardener and the community.
The 2011 edition shares the experiences of several community gardens across the Prairies, and describes the many ways to successfully garden on balconies, small urban spaces or in large rural settings. A wealth of general-interest articles include helpful tips for growing begonias, heucheras, daylilies, orchids, as well as information on the new Manitoba Master Gardener Program.
This is the 72nd year the digest-sized garden annual has been published. This year’s publication contains an extra 200 pages making it the largest release ever.
ThePrairie Gardenis now available in garden centres and nurseries as well as McNally Robinson and the University of Manitoba Bookstore.
