Gardening In Alaska
Show Off Your Plants
Brittany feels it's important to stay on top of your flowers. Keep them looking lovely and they'll have blooms for a long time. Even though they have unique growing aspects in Alaska with longer days and cooler temperatures she still needs to keep working with those plants to keep them blooming throughout the season. Joe noticed that all the gardens at the Fair had a theme. We all have choices when selecting plants but here each garden sticks with a few. They didn't over do it and they all worked together. Brittany feels anybody can take a couple of plants and make a garden beautiful. The real difference depends on your combinations, the heights, textures and colors. They can be put together in a surprising number of combinations. The microclimate, created by walls and fences pushed a zone 2 to a zone 5. That's amazing, and all because of the microclimate.
