Welcome!

Gardening at USask offers pesticide-free growing advice online, free and low-cost public workshops and events, and ample ways to connect with local gardeners and gardening communities. We aim to serve the people of the Canadian prairies and northern Canada so all of our information is proven to work, right here. We realize that gardening is about more than fruits and flowers - it's about your health, your community, and building a relationship with your environment. All of our advice is free.

Gardening advice

This is a big site so we've tried to make it easy to find things. Look immediately above these lines for the tabs labeled Special situation, Sorted by plant, General advice and how-to's, etc. When you click on a tab you'll find popular pages from our Gardening advice section on our site. From any page on this site you can click on the Gardening advice section in the menu for the full list.

We've also included a site search tool here. It meeds our needs for now, but it is set up to take you to a seperate page. We hope to make it more user-friendly in the future.
