Beautiful Gardens 2020

The tenth 2020 Beautiful Garden belongs to Kathy Benson and Nick Odynak on Nine Mile Point in Wagner. Much of it is edible, with herbs and flowers growing in among the vegetables.
If you would like your garden featured in an upcoming edition of The Leader, or can recommend another beautiful garden, let us know at 780-849-4380!

A sunflower. Benson lets them seed themselves, as long as they don’t throw too much shade on the other plants.
Potato blossoms, small and pretty.
Poppy
A pepper growing and apparently prospering in the greenhouse.
Columbines growing where they weren’t planted, but blooming bright and beautiful.
Borage, an herb with a Middle Eastern origin. Benson grows it because the bees love it.
