The season are what defines a Calgary garden. Calgary gardens are all about the seasons and Gardeners in Calgary should make the most out of each season.
Calgary Gardeners are a passionate breed of people.
The warm smell of lilacs permeating many Calgary Gardens on a nice spring day is what I look forward to every year. A passing bee loves to stop from flower to flower collecting nectar from a favorite Calgary garden.
The season is so short, there is not a lot of time to enjoy Calgary and it's gardens. I have been a Calgary Gardener for many years and I like do everything I can to squeeze every bit of enjoyment out of the short gardening season in Calgary.
On the other hand, Spring is when Calgary Gardens come alive again.
The process is started by making the most of our winters. Winter is a time to contemplate and reflect on what you want out of your life bearing gem once the season starts up again.
Color and life thrive in the mini ecosystem a Calgary Gardener will accomplish, with just a few garden plants.
Calgary has a growing season of about four to five months. When winter hits, Calgary and city gardeners are used to a phenomenon called a Chinook.
Calgary Chinooks pose another problem for gardens. The wind. Due to the pressure variance associated with Calgary Chinooks, high winds can dry out plants in your gardens.
Your dog suddenly has more energy as he scrambles to get outside to the garden area, on a typical spring day Calgary.
Spring is truly beautiful.
They cause the temperature to increase a few degrees in the winter, which you'd think would be good, but for Calgary Gardens, they are bad. Damage can be caused to some Calgary Garden plants because they sometimes think spring is coming. This is especially bad for out of zone Calgary Garden Plants.
A popular Calgary Garden plant called the Cedar is one plant that should watched during Calgary winters, to make sure it doesn't dry out.
I am sure that winter was designed so that Calgary Gardeners could plan, plan, plan so that when spring finally arrives, it makes it that much better.
Many trees and shrubs have stood patient all winter so that they may feel the true Calgary sunshine.
Calgary Gardeners rejoice and have a good winter to relax, reconnect and enjoy planning your garden space for next summer.
Or maybe if it is winter, get some indoor plants and create an indoor Calgary Garden!
After the winter season in Calgary, spring arrives and gardens rejoice with life.
As a Calgary Gardener, I have learned like all seasons. This includes Winter and the so called dreaded Chinook.
Perennials that have sat silent for months explode with color.
