A few dollars grows a long way.
Groundhog day approaches...
...and winter wanes. It seems a jest to some people to celebrate February 2 but gardeners know better. The day's lengthened to the point that indoor plants notice and resume growing. Outside, that same increase in light entices capped buds to swell and draw moisture, so the sap begins to rise. The willow and dogwood twigs begin to glow.
Come prune with us in a thaw, meet us for a winter conference, or reserve a date for hands-on learning at a Garden by Janet & Steven. Check our website calendar and please notice the three Secrets workshops beginning May 2.
Creating a landscape design is simple if you enlist the child within to go paint the snow or scratch in the sand. Good for daydream plans as well as disaster recovery. See it happen!
A man leaves for the grocery store and comes home to find his kitchen full up of iris projects: Testing viability after a freeze, dividing, controlling rot, investigating insects. Good stuff but in my kitchen?!
