Top 5 Gardening Mistakes
Avoid these top five mistakes when planting your spring flower beds or pots so you can show off your green thumb to the world!
Nature’s “It” Plant: The Succulent
Succulents are everywhere these days. I’m drawn to them. They speak to me. Their calm serenity, their squishiness. They seem so comfortable being themselves. Potted in minimalistic containers or “junky” old treasures like teacups or toolboxes…they’re like chameleons, fitting in wherever. I’d like to believe they’re happy little plants, put on this earth to make all of us happy. So let’s get happy.
Indoor Herb Garden
I love fresh herbs. Love them. Yet, as is the paradox with all things great, whenever I need them, they’re either dead or eaten by bugs in my outdoor garden, or rotting in a plastic bag in a refrigerator drawer. Yum right?

Start Seeds Indoors
It’s that time of year, the sun’s shining, the temperature is rising. Surely you can get out that spade and plant a bit right? No can do. Most likely the ground isn’t warm enough, and you don’t want all of your hard work to go to waste because of a freak snow storm in April. (Fingers crossed that doesn’t happen).

It’s barely spring, but are you ready for full fledged everything’s green, flowers blooming, birds chirping, consistent 75 degree days? If you just can’t wait for spring to get here in all her glory, planting an indoor window garden might be just cure you need! Indoor gardens bring life and color into the house when nature isn’t quite ready to comply.
Rejuvenate Your Wrought Iron
Lucky you if you have wrought iron railings, fences or patio furniture! Wrought iron never seems to go out of style and it’s super easy to maintain. As you probably know, over time wrought iron can become pitted, rusty and get a chalky appearance. Instead of pitching it and buying something else, try these simple steps for a brand new look!
