Finally Getting this Garden Right!

I live in a small city and am fortunate enough to have a yard and garden (albeit small) to tend to. There is one bed in the back part of my yard that is always changing and evolving with each season, that I’m never quite satisfied with. This season, that’s all going to change!

White Blooms Go with Everything!

Looking for a versatile color to unite your garden beds? White-flowering plants not only add an elegant feel to your garden and help to cool it down, but also illuminate in the moonlight, creating a romantic glow in the evening hours. You can find almost any plant in white, so gardeners have a large variety to choose from.

Gardening for the Birds

Birds are one of the most fascinating creatures to watch and their chirps are often the first sign that spring has arrived. As a gardener, there are several ways to create an environment that will both attract and help our winged friends. By planting a garden that provides food and shelter for birds, you will create a beneficial, lively habitat in your own outdoor space.
