  • Understanding plants and their needs will make for a better garden

    With spring just around the corner, with my brain a little mushy from a long cold winter, I thought it was time to brush up on some garden nomenclature.  
    I have long been convinced of the value of understanding more about plants than the mere fact that they need sun, soil and water.    
    The more we learn about what it is that plants need and how to determine if they are getting it, the more we will enjoy the act of gardening.
