Primary Earth-friendly Gardening Tenents:

*Tolerate minimal damage to plants and lawn from pests. *Build and maintain healthy soil by using compost and natural soil amendments. *Use chemicals as a last resort. *Use native plants when possible. They are adapted to the climate, soil and area pests. *Attract Beneficial Insects to increase pollination and decrease harmful pests. *Conserve water by using responsible watering methods.

Holiday Decorating

I started the holiday decorating!

Cyclamen with Lamium Maculatium -

I am considering moving the daphne odora from the old house to the yard here - a favorite of mine, but so temperamental!

*** Updated: In early March we did move 5 Daphne Odora to the new house. They are shallow, fine roots and hopefully they will take here.
