2014 75th Anniversary Gardens

It is an exciting time to be a prairie gardener. A remarkable potpourri of herb and spice plants are available these days, and gardeners are breaking the bounds of our northern climate growing amazing, diverse selections.

The 2017 Prairie Garden is dedicated to this goal: connecting gardeners with local information on how to successfully grow everything from culinary classics right on through to exotic spices such as ginger, allspice and even potted cinnamon trees. Local gardeners will love the prairie-centric voice of our contributing authors who intimately understand that info about herbs is all-too-often covered in warmer climate terms... and that is just frustrating.

The plants highlighted in the 2017 Prairie Garden reflect a wide range of fragrance, flavours and uses, and our contributors offer an inspiring look at the many ways that herbs and spices weave into our lives. This year’s book also features a comprehensive herb and spice compendium with full colour pictures and prairie-specific growing details.        

Gardens across the prairies are going to be seasoned to perfection this year!
