I just love the Hole family of St Albert. As well as a reknown gardening author, Lois Hole was our provincial Lieutenant governor and we would often see her chatting with folks at their greenhouse. She was known as the Queen of Hugs and is sorely missed since her passing.
I recently signed on to get some more gardening newsletters...one can't be too informed about this sort of hobby! Through one of those I came across Lois's son Jim's website. Take a look, the pod casts are very informative. Now if I can get a weather guru on board, I'd be all set!
