  • Be a green consumer

    What can we do to impact the environment less? Be a green consumer. Walk or ride a bike, when you can; reuse things and if you can’t at least recycle them. Buy less stuff that you don’t need? All are easily done, really, but what about in our gardens as we struggle to keep things beautiful during the growing season?

    With spring just around the corner I thought it was time to brush up on some garden nomenclature.  
    I have long been convinced in 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.
