  • Plant symbolism

    Plants have long been associated with symbolism. When the masses needed to be influenced it was more effective using plants and flowers to explain the mysteries of the world because most people were illiterate.  
    You may not have been able to read the words but you certainly could have related to the lessons taught by using flowers as symbols.  
    Christians were very good at this when explaining Christ’s life.

  • Prepare houseplants for outdoors

    I am feeling optimistic about our springtime weather and am as anxious as anyone to move some of my houseplants outdoors: my gardenia looks terrible in the dining room and the jasmine down stairs seems to stare into space dreaming of better days; those days are coming, just be slow about the transition from indoors to out.  
    Nothing compares to the restorative powers of the great outdoors: more light, warmth, higher relative humidity and rain water, this is what all our indoor plants are longing for.   

  • Lakes to celebrate 50th anniversary

  • Mulch matters!

    Mulch has become a landscape staple, almost to a fault when it is over applied, smothering roots and girdling trunks.  
    When done properly is can help to suppress weeds, retain moisture and moderate temperature. These things can be achieved using a variety of materials but which type of mulch suits your needs best?
    Predominately, we use organic materials for mulching.  
    Organic mulches include plant or animal derived materials like wood chips, pine needles, tree bark, grass clippings, composted manure, and worm castings.
