Why Not Succulents

ucculents make eye-catching container plants because they’re easy to grow and they can be found in most any retail center. I really love how you can grow succulents just about any where!

Catch The Wave This Spring : Add Trailing Pansies

I’m noticing as I shop the garden centers this spring a trend of new gardeners filling their carts with spring blooms like the dainty little pansies. With the variety of colors available this year it’s hard not to grab a six pack of these once known as old fashion flowers.

Head Start on Spring Gardening

One of the really cool things about having your own home greenhouse is being able to get a head start on spring. It maybe 50*F one day and then snow storm the next in March in zone 5b Ohio where I live and grow. My 10’x12′ is a safe haven for annuals that wouldn’t make it outdoors and a great place to get seeds started from the summer veggie garden.
