My Little Garden - Kelli N.

My garden is very small, but still very special in my heart. It is a memorial to a very special kitty. The strange thing about this small garden is a particular rose bush. To most people it would seem a scraggly bush that should be dug up and perhaps replanted in another location. Never more than one flower blooms at a time, but that one flower is always absolutely perfect in shape and has the most amazing aroma. A garden doesn\'t have to be large to bring joy to one's heart -- my little garden with my little yellow rose bush is living proof.

When You Garden, You Grow!

Every April communities, organizations, and individuals nationwide celebrate gardening during National Garden Month. Gardeners know, and research confirms, that nurturing plants is good for us: attitudes toward health and nutrition improve, kids perform better at school, and community spirit grows. Join the celebration and help to make America a greener, healthier, more livable place!

About National Garden Month

Why Garden?

"April is a National Gardening Month for a reason. It is when we gardeners begin preparing for harvests of real, fresh, healthy food. Not yet a vegetable gardener? You do not need to be a land baron to get started. Many types of vegetables can be successfully grown in containers allowing even the most space-challenged folks the opportunity to raise their own food. Whether you dream of self-sufficiency, saving some money on your food budget, or taking control over the quality of what you eat, April is your opportunity to start."

-- Mike Dunton, Founder, Victory Seed Company
