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?

"Gardening cultivates life! I'm so grateful to family and friends who showed me by example over the years how important gardening was to them. Whether it was the pure joy of a new flower or a healthy harvest of homegrown food, I learned how their efforts bring joy and help maintain fitness, too. Thank you all!"

-- Dan Long, Owner, Brushwood Nursery
