Pushing the Zone in Alaska

By Oberon46
February 22, 2015

Anchorage, Alaska, has a pretty short growing season, which is cool (55-65 F) and tends to be overcast much of the time. So, having a greenhouse would be great. Not having enough room for one on my urban lot, I fortunately discovered raised beds, and to extend the season, hoop beds. Hope you will enjoy my journey into new gardening worlds.

Mary, thanks for sharing how your garden has become what it is today. You have found great way to "zone push". I truly enjoy your posts, and I'm thrilled to see that your hard work has paid off. I'm looking forward to seeing your blooms this year!

Thanks Annette. I am trying really hard to pay attention and follow through with all the reading I have been doing. I am going to try to plant out seeds that are cold weather at the end of March, and put out cold hardy seedlings the first or middle of April. I will of course have the covers on the beds and use the heat lamps.
