Canadian AAS Judges are Celebrating the Year of the Garden

All-America Selections has always enjoyed tremendous support from our neighbors to the north. As they celebrate 2022 as the Year of the Garden, we want to thank and recognize our Canadian judges for all the work they put into trialing the many entries into the AAS Trials. Each judge brings their unique perspective to the trial and lends their expertise in helping decide exactly which new varieties have the potential of becoming an AAS Winner.

Therapeutic Garden Invitation: Prepping for Fall!

As fall weather takes hold, we need to change our gardening practices to get our landscape ready for the season ahead. A flower garden can tell you a lot at the end of the growing season. You’ll want to assess the results of all your spring and summer work and prepare your garden for next spring. With changing weather, there are few things that can still be planted in your garden. We can prep our gardens to start planting trees or wait a little to begin planting tulips which are generally best planted in October or November. 

The Canadian Horticultural Therapy Association puts out a Therapeutic Garden invitation on our social media every week, follow us on Facebook. You can also check all the invitations that have been sent to date on our website.
