  1. Hi Kerry

    I love your emails that I get from you. Please can you tell me how I go about fitting everything you say to work for us Canadian gardeners. I live in British Columbia Canada on Vancouver Island. I get disappointed when nothing I find that is any good applies to us. Thanks for all your time and help take care Cheryl


    • Hello Cheryl,

      Thank you so much. While we are going to summer, you are going to winter. And I am really looking forward to the warmer weather! If you bear in mind that while you are a different time zone to me, you can still use the information. It depends where you are in Canada. I set the Almanac for AEST, or now its AEDT for daylight savings. All you need to do is google “time zone converter”. Put in your city, and mine which is near Melbourne Australia, and it will tell you the time difference. Then mentally add or subtract the hours to the Almanac.

      We have similarities as we are on each end of the globe and a long long way from what “they” think is the centre of the world! 🙂 Cheers to Aussies and Canadians everywhere! Thank you Kerry 🙂

    • Opps you told me where you where! And I looked it up and you need to take 19 hours off the times I give. So if I am 11am Monday morning; you are 4pm Sunday! Wow. 🙂 Have fun in your autumn garden while I have fun in my spring one. Thank you, Kerry
