Renovate - Patty W.

I recently renovated my house with a resulting year long disruption of my normal vegetable gardening. When I resumed gardening ayear later, I discovered that my renovation had blocked the sunlight from my vegetable garden. I had to switch to container gardening for my vegetables and change my vegetable garden to shade loving annuals and perennials.

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?

"This is the time for the woodland bulbs to come into their glory. The garden is full of Erythronium which have self seeded around - the most welcome of weeds! Trillium, slower to establish but so well worth the wait, are emerging and Anemone are popping up at the edges of the paths. Above them the early Rhododendrons are starting to flower, Camellia and Magnolia are in full bud and we know that the month will get even better as it goes on."

-- Stella Rankin, Owner, Kevock Garden and Kevock Garden Plants
