We have New Publications!
The 2021 Gardening Calendar features photos of Calgary and area gardens, provides monthly tips, and includes seed planting charts for ornamentals and edibles. A contribution that is new to the calendar this year is seed starting and germination tips prepared by Kath Smyth. The calendars are only $10 each. You may arrange to pick one up or have it mailed for an additional $5. Call the office at 403.287.3469 to purchase your copy—buy calendars for family and friends, too!
The Society also has a gardening journal, The Growing Journal. The journal allows for daily and monthly tracking, plant database and plant log sections for recording what’s been planted in what conditions, an area to record what insects are being found and when, places to sketch, areas to capture ideas, Words of Wisdom and checklists. There’s even a pocket for storing seed packets or plant tags. It’s a great tool for an ardent gardener. The journal may be purchased for $20. If you would like to see the journal prior to purchasing, please call the office to make an appointment to visit.
Purchasing these publications help fund Society programs and initiatives.
