No gardener should be without an herb garden. No gardener should be without a cat. With these two provisos one can also state no garden is complete without a bit of Catnip. Catnip (Nepeta Cataria ) is a rather pretty  plant growing in bushy mounds around two feet  high with serrated, oblong, slightly fuzzy, heart-shaped leaves of a  grayish green hue. They produce long spiky flowers in violet and white which attract bees by the hive-full.

Flower gardens, grow something beautiful

The flower garden can make or break the landscape. That is to say, if you have flower gardens within your landscape, they make the yard fantastic. If not, it’s broken. And what do we do when things are broken? We fix them, of course. So, grab yourself a couple of those easy flower garden designs readily available wherever you can find a flower plant and get to it. Let’s fix up that yard and  plant a few flower beds.

Tomato plant query

I received a query recently about tomato plants and I thought I’d answer it here.

Does a tomato plant die after one year or will it continue to grow next year?

Good question!
