Back to update.

This is how the outdoor classroom at the Alaska Botanical Garden looked on the morning of September 23. Their Test Garden was planted the following day. With winter approaching we wonder when spring might arrive in Anchorage? Keep in touch with these Alaskan gardeners throughout the year to help predict the outcome for spring 2014.

"I hope this year I can connect with people like those who emailed me last year. Rainy and cool on planting day (45 degrees). Anchorage has had some light frosts but the ground is not frozen yet." - Patrick Ryan Anchorage, Alaska 09/24/13
