    The perfect place to spend a beautiful day is in the nursery looking at the fresh new plants. Once you fill your cart and bring the plants home, it is imperative you spend a little time checking out the requirements of the plant and finding the best place in your garden for it to grow to its greatest potential.

  • I receive several calls a week from residents wanting to know how to get rid of pests (moles, weeds, aphids, scale, mole crickets, etc.) in their yards. Humans have been attempting to control insects, weeds, rodents and other pests for thousands of years.

  • Rice is a versatile accompaniment to almost any meal. It’s easy to store and is always ready to use; no washing, no peeling and no chopping is required.

    Long grain rice, slender and four to five times as long as it is wide, cooks into fluffy, separate grains and is most often used in entrées, soups and pilafs or even as a side dish.
