All American Selections for This Year
The All American Selections have been made and announced for 2019. Review the characteristics that made them winners and determine if you are itching to get them into your garden this year.
A Gardener’s Winter Chores
Who says gardeners have nothing to do in the winter? There are chores to attend to, and vegetables to raise. Learn what a gardener can do to keep busy during January and February.
Seeds of Doubt
Open those seed catalogs that are now being delivered to view juicy vegetables ready to bust off the page and luscious annuals you can almost feel. Maybe think again if you believe your plants will turn out as suggested in the catalog photos.
Rules and Lessons in Gardening
There is a book that has everything a gardener would want to know, presenting bite-size chunks of sensible advice as lessons, with plenty of color photographs. Rules of thumb go a long way when based on experience.
Trees in Winter
Do you know a tree by its branches? Winter provides the best opportunity for you to test your knowledge by observing branches without leaves in silhouettes against the sky.
Seed Exchange and ‘How-to’ Lectures Planned
Get a jump on your garden planning at Washington Gardener’s annual Seed Exchange at Green Spring or Brookside Gardens. Or while cooped up indoors, take advantage of other how-to lectures and talks found on our events calendar.
