Creating and maintaining the perfect yard on the prairies isn’t as hard as you might think, but the short growing season doesn’t give you much time to transform your winter-weary yard into a glorious garden. To help homeowners in Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba get the jump on the short season, popular gardening expert Lyndon Penner has created the essential guide to a quick and beautiful yard in the prairie provinces.
With gardening smarts, style and wit, Lyndon covers everything both novice and expert gardeners need to know, along with tips you won’t find anywhere else. Contains more than 200 beautiful, colour photos.
Lyndon Penner has given an essential guide to help gardeners overcome a short gardening season in his concise but informative book.
It is beautifully illustrated, very entertaining…, but most importantly, filled with practical advice on the full spectrum of yard planning and maintenance.
The Prairie Short Season Yard is a terrific treatise on gardening for prairie gardeners.… [Lyndon’s] book is a reflection of his style: wildly entertaining and enormously informative.
I hadn’t even finished the book, when an issue arose in our garden this spring. My immediate response: let’s see what Lyndon has to say!… [A] new guru is in town.
This is the ideal book for the hundreds of new gardeners that descend upon the garden centres each year.… For novice as well as veteran gardeners, this book is sure to be an agent for positive change in terms of how we approach gardening.
This book was a joy to read. There is so much great information on so many topics related to the prairie garden that it may well become the gold standard on short season gardening here in Manitoba.
