Gardening After The Winter Holidays

Now that the holidays are behind us, it’s a relief to direct our energy inward for a little while and focus on some new projects. Winter is such a great time to make plans for the future.

Early Seed Starting of Flavorful Varieties

We like to grow our own vegetables so that we can choose the most flavorful varieties and ensure that they are healthy from seed to harvest by starting our own plants.

Christmas Traditions

The origin of the Christmas tree is well documented. The modern version originated in Germany and spread to the United States in the 1820s with the influx of European immigrants.

Indoor Gardening Tips for a Chilly December

Outside, seeds and buds are slumbering. The earth is still. Inside our homes, we’re warm and happy in rooms sparkling with bright lights, views of any impending storms softened by steamy windows.

Choosing A Tree

Close on the heels of the Thanksgiving celebration, comes one of the most harrowing of all the winter holiday experiences-the Selection of the Christmas Tree. Luckily, we live smack in the middle of tree central.

Everything Holiday Houseplants

Gardening in late November? Are we crazy? Most everyone we know is consumed with holiday decorating, shopping and entertaining, but you can still squeeze in a little winter gardening to satisfy your green thumb.

Prep Your Garden For Winter!

Wow. We had amazing fall weather, but the forecasted chilly temperatures make it look as though winter is ready to settle in. But there is still time to plant bulbs this weekend, so stop into the Garden Center to stock up on a bit of color for next spring and take advantage of the 50% savings.

Preparing Our Containers and Garden Ornaments for Storage

November can be such a melancholy month. The days are shortening and we know that the icy grip of winter is imminent. Our landscapes are losing the bright autumn leaves and before long snowflakes will begin to gather on the grass and in the garden. The season for outdoor gardening is drawing to a close, and there is not much to do, save raking up the last of those leaves and preparing our containers and garden ornaments for storage.

Late Fall Gardening Tips

At long last. It’s time to take a deep breath, because the physical work, and often frenetic pace, of the growing season is over. Not having a million things to accomplish in the garden may make some folks bereft, but many others so happy.

Forcing Spring Bulbs Now

Forcing spring bulbs into winter bloom was the rage in the 1800’s. Hyacinths were especially popular. But there are others to try, too. We love vases of paperwhites and pots of amaryllis. And with a little prep time, you can have pots of tulips and daffodils blooming in your kitchen in late February.
