Gardening in Alaska presents big challenges, whether it's the extra effort in finding plants tough enough to survive our Zone 2-4 climate, communicating with like-minded Alaska gardeners, or keeping up with the latest trends, issues and solutions. We'll try to help with that. We'll also tour gardens from Homer to Anchorage to Wasilla to Willow whenever we get the chance, and post the best garden photos around. Presenting a forum about cold-weather gardening and for cold-weather gardeners is what we are all about. We hope you'll join us on the Talk Dirt garden blog.

A note forwarded from Central Peninsula Garden Club in Kenai:
"And speaking of recycling trees, ......artificial that is.....(green plastic that is, oil in a different form that is), the Kenai Visitor Center is looking for donations of artificial trees, preferably without lights, and with all the branches and tree stand in good shape. 7 ft and under. Pick up is possible. Contact Laura Forbes at (907) 283-1991 or email@example.com"
