Hey, I'm Kristen
I’m a zone 3 gardener out of Saskatoon, SK who is passionate about growing pretty flowers. Where I live, we only have 90-110 days to grow flowers, and our season often gets cut short by surprise frosts in early September, and sometimes in late August.
Every year I felt so frustrated when we had an early frost at the beginning of September, and then three completely gorgeous weeks of weather where growing flowers would have been possible–if only they hadn’t died from that first frost.
I created this system by observing some happy accidents in the garden. During a particularly cold season, some flowers that would have never made it to the first frost did, and the seed for a new ebook was planted.
I’m a former farm kid turned urban gardener and my mission is to make gardening as easy and accessible as possible for new gardeners. Not everyone has “that friend who grows everything” and I want to be that person for you, through my e-books, social media, and blog, Shifting Roots.
When I’m not growing flowers, you can find me spending time with my husband and three kids, singing, playing piano, or baking up a storm.
