2015: The Year of the Gaillardia

Each year, the National Garden Bureau chooses a variety of plants to feature. They explain on their website, “Each year we select one annual, one perennial and one edible as our “Year of the” crops. Each is chosen because they are popular, easy-to-grow, widely adaptable, genetically diverse, and versatile.”

Bee Helpful By Gardening

Honeybees are integral to our food system; they pollinate many fruits, nuts and vegetables, helping crops grow and produce. Recently, the bee population has been declining worldwide, which can be harmful to our eco-system in many ways. Agricultural agencies, environmental workers and farmers have been trying to solve the bee problem for several years, and it really starts with you – the gardener.
