Cold Climate Gardening - Magazines
- Canadian Gardening
"As it actually deals with places with winter-- like the Yukon--it has resources and articles that are pertinent to my every day garden life."--Judy Miller, weblog contributor. If, like Judy, you live close to the Canadian border, you can cross that border and purchase this magazine on the newsstands. Otherwise, you may prefer to browse the website instead, and subscribe to their email newsletter. Canadians are at an advantage here.
- Manitoba Gardener Living Magazine
Manitoba Gardener is all 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.
- Northern Gardener
Look at the hardiness map for Minnesota and you will see that the whole state is in zone 4 or colder. The Minnesota State Horticultural Society, which publishes this magazine, is devoted to helping northern gardeners. If you join, besides the magazine you will get borrowing privileges at the society's library (they mail you the books!), as well as other benefits that would mostly appeal to local members. Or, you can subscribe to the magazine alone.
- The Gardener for the Prairies
Produced on the prairies for the prairies, The Gardener covers topics specific to our region's difficult growing conditions. You know the challenges of gardening in a climate with a short growing season, harsh winters and variable moisture and want a magazine that understands and offers solutions.
Since 1995 we've been providing information and inspiration to prairie gardeners. Published four times a year, The Gardener for the Prairies explores all aspects of gardening and offers informative articles and inspiring photography. A wide range of gardening topics are covered in every full-colour issue: annuals and perennials, fruits and vegetables, water gardening, trees and shrubs, backyard birds, insects, pests, diseases and more.
Academics and industry professionals provide insight on trends and techniques and answer your gardening questions. Master gardeners and hobbyists share their stories and passion for gardening. Packed with useful hints and do-it-yourself home projects, you'll have all the information you need to garden right in your own backyard.
- Zone 4 Magazine
While Zone 4 is primarily a gardening magazine, we also welcome stories on gardening, garden tours, farmer’s market events, food related festivals, Community Sponsored Agriculture (CSA), local food production, and stories that feature outdoor living spaces.
