Now you can learn about gardening from those who know best.

The authors of this book, The Calgary Horticultural Society, are all Calgarians, all gardeners, and they know how to produce glorious blooms, tasty vegetables, elegant lawns, and healthy trees and shrubs in the unique climate of Alberta's Chinook region. They know that what works in more hospitable climates won't necessarily succeed where frequent winter thaws, heavily alkaline soils, and drying summer winds constantly challenge a gardener's ingenuity.

The Calgary Gardener is jam-packed with up-to-date information and illustrations, as well as colour photographs of picturesque Calgary gardens and recommended annuals and perennials. With hundreds of years of combined gardening experience, the authors share their accumulated wisdom in a lively and inviting style.

Beginning and veteran gardeners alike will find both inspiration and hours of enjoyment in this comprehensive and practical guide.
