This website was initally constructed to supplement the Horticulture Inquiries Service operated by the Univeristy of Manitoba. The website contains a number of frequently asked questions (FAQ) which are representative of inquiries received from the general public. Additional pages will be added as new information becomes available.
For 3 to 4 decades, the Horticulture Inquiries Service was operated by a summer student under the supervision of staff in the horticulture section of the Department of Plant Science, Faculty of Agricultural and Food Sciences. Due to a reduction in Horticulture staff the phone service was discontinued after the 2005 season.
The website was constructed with assistance from staff and students in the Department of Plant Science, Faculty of Agricultural and Food Sciences at the University of Manitoba, including the following: Lorne Adam, Jane Dawson, Linda Pearn, Tara Penner, Bill Remphrey, Cara Ritz and Jessica White.
