It’s That Time….Again

Put the Gardens to Bed

It's That Time....Again

A touch of winter weather this past week has put an end to our summer/early fall gardens.  Sad to see the short season end but it’s time to put our gardens to bed and tools in the shed. Every year, we get questions about taking care of new plants and trees.  Should I wrap my […]

Garden Planning – More Than Just Flowers

Another way to get that color!

Garden Planning – More Than Just Flowers

When planning a garden, it’s important to think about “right plant, right spot” and create a plan with seasonal interest.  I have seen some color code their plans so they know just when the flowers will bloom.  But gardens should be more than just flower bloom times.
