the GARDENS

The gardens here were begun even before the plumbing was! A barrel was positioned to catch rain and its water was lovingly applied pail by pail to the thirsty plants. "Is this normal?" you may ask. It is, if you're fanatical like Moose Gardens B&B host Marya Morrow: "You have to have your priorities straight!" she says.

One of the established gardens at our 'old' house, featuring the annuals, perennials and other plants but NOT the roses or dahlias.

At Moose Gardens Bed and Breakfast, you don't have to stop to smell the roses - just walking by'll do the trick. We do encourage stopping, however, and enjoying the gardens - whether from afar on your private balcony or up close wandering the grounds.

A steady progression of plants bloom throughout the growing season, from the roses already mentioned to native Alaskan plants, old-fashioned perennials, brightly cheerful annuals, berries and dahlias, dahlias, dahlias (a family favorite).

Much of what is grown may be familiar to you - there are many similarities between gardening in Alaska and gardening elsewhere. There are also some outstanding differences.

Moose.

MOOSE, for example...

...are not a typical feature of the gardens in "the lower 48". To fully appreciate a moose's impact, just think of him or her as a superbly constructed pruning machine.

However, unlike your basic, every-day shears - they don't listen to instructions and don't know when to quit, making moose a VERY unpredictable feature with which to work.

And it's unfortunate, but true. Moose are very portable and don't appear on demand or on schedule. But if you really want to see a moose, take heart.

At Moose Gardens Bed and Breakfast -
you can ALWAYS see a planted moose!

While you may not see one in action during your stay at Moose Gardens B&B, they are often here and we have planted accordingly... so! you're in for a treat as the gardens are beautiful, ever changing and, (if you're so inclined) educational: you can come away from your Moose Gardens B&B stay knowing what grows well in USDA zone 3 - and what moose don't eat.
