Synopsis:

"A visitor from down south stared at my apple tree
and said: 'Those don't grow here you know. It's too cold.'
If the apricot tree in Highlands knew it couldn't live here,
it might stop scattering white blossoms over three lawns." - Bert Almon

Edmonton has a rich and diverse horticultural history. Vacant lot gardeners, rose gardeners, and horticultural societies have all contributed to the beautification of the capital city of Alberta, and through the enthusiasm of florists, seedsmen, and plant breeders the city has developed a distinct horticultural character. In this collection of nine essays, each with a different theme, Kathryn Chase Merrett depicts the development of Edmonton's social, cultural, and physical landscape as it has been shaped by champions of both nature and the garden. Edmontonians and all urbanites interested in gardening and local history, as well as professors and students of history, cultural studies, and urban design, will delight in the colourful storytelling of Why Grow Here.

Book Description: Nine essays explore how gardeners and gardens moulded Edmonton's social, cultural, and physical landscape.
