Want to be known as the “thoughtful and clever gift-giver” this holiday season? Like the idea of giving your loved one a gift that curls their toes and makes them appreciate you just a smidgen more? Let the Gardens help facilitate the crowning of this new holiday title for you.
Here’s the answer... sign up a loved one (or two) for a class at the Gardens for next year. The Gardens...
Most of us are able to take full advantage of all our senses within nature – to enjoy the sight of colorful foliage and flora, to smell the scent of a delicate bloom, or to touch the velvety cloth of a lamb’s wool leaf.
As summer ends and fall arrives, the gardener’s focus changes from growing all those nutritious veggies to “What is that spider?! And how do I keep it out of my home?!” Most spiders live one to two years and many of them overwinter as eggs. They later develop into adult spiders and are usually full grown by summertime. With the cooler weather, adult spiders (especially males) search for shelter in the fall and sometimes migrate into your home.
You moved here for the amazing scenery and pure fresh air and you couldn’t wait to start gardening. The plants don’t last even one season, the grass lacks the lush green of your former lawn and all the garden strategies that used to make your landscape the envy of the neighborhood are failing you. You’re not completely new to gardening – or – maybe you are. What do you do?
