Perennial Living!

A place to learn and grow 

Welcome to my gardening blog, Perennial Living! 

I hope that you will enjoy spending time here, as we learn and grow together!  My goal in writing this blog is to help new and beginning gardeners gain a basic knowledge and understanding of perennials and how to plant and care for a perennial garden in zone 3 - 4. I live in Alberta where winters are long and cold so I understand the challenges that many new gardeners have when it comes to understanding what will  grow in our climate. Although this blog is mainly focused on perennial gardening in a colder climate, there are many helpful tips and information which you will find relevant no matter what zone you are gardening in. My hope is that I can inspire those of you who are just starting out on your perennial journey to develop a life long passion for plants and deepen your desire to nurture and care for your own little patch of earth. As we care for and become good stewards of the land, our lives will in turn,be enriched and beautified. No matter how new you are to the world of gardening, You Can Do This! Happy Gardening!
