MANITOBA GARDENER MAGAZINE
Manitoba Gardener is about gardening in one of the more challenging areas of Canada. In Manitoba, the winters can be long and bitterly cold, while the brief summers are glowingly hot. Conditions can range from humid to arid and the soil is alluvial silt on a base of heavy clay. Still, wonderful beauty can be the result of this combination if you know what to grow and how to grow it.
This magazine tells you what and how and shows off the lovely gardens that can be found here in Zones 2 and 3.
The publication is four-color, 8 ½ by 11 inches, published 5 times a year (retail price $5.95), including a special Beautiful Gardens issue ($8.95). Yearly subscriptions are $29.95.
1 year subscription brings you 5 issues per year with the seasons
