EARTH DAY

---Anne K Moore April 17, 2009---

Statewide Earth Days are celebrated throughout the year.  They coincide with the normal planting season of individual states.  National Earth Day is celebrated on April 22.  This is a good day to reflect on the consequences of your gardening practices.  Give some thought to what you use in your garden.  What kind of an impact are you having on the health of the planet?  Do some homework and background checks on what you add to the environment.  We all suffer or benefit from garden practices.  One person does make a difference.  Many people create change.  For instance, when you spray pesticides, donŐt just think about what it is you are trying to kill, think about what you are actually killing.  You may be saving a valuable plant.  Think about saving the planet as well.

However, the real reason we love them is the way they provide strong structure and play well with floriferous bounty during the growing season, becoming stars in their own right during the winter. If you live in zones 4 - 8 you have the largest range of choices, but there's something amazing for just about every zone! Read more...
