Vegetables In The Winter Garden

Vegetables In The Winter Garden

Vegetables In The Winter Garden – Winter can be a very productive time to grow and harvest vegetables, even in some of the coldest areas of the country. Most seed catalogs are now offering a full array of fall and winter options. Freezing areas will need to use a cold frame, hoop or greenhouse, but in warmer climate areas, winter harvests can be even more productive than summer!

Consider these grow-in-the-ground winter options: carrots, spinach, leeks, collards, parsnips, hardy salad greens (Mache, Claytonia, and some lettuces), cabbage, turnips, Swiss chard, and of course kale.

Array Of Evergreens

Array Of Evergreens

Array Of Evergreens – A surprisingly wide selection of evergreen plants have interestingly shaped or attractively colored foliage, which makes them useful for year-round container plantings, and winter arrangements in particular.

Extremely harsh winters can be a problem for plants in containers, but a small selection can withstand the icy, winter onslaught. Those with interesting foliage include abelia, cotoneaster, Cornish heath, euonymus, holly, calico bush, privet, box, ivy, lavender, pieris, periwinkle, and many conifers: false cypress, juniper, spruce, pine, yew, and Eastern hemlock, to name just a few possibilities.

Decking Design And Suitable Plants

Decking Design And Suitable Plants – Decking looks like having a dance-floor in your garden, perfect for walking on barefoot but sudden death to stilettos because of the gaps. Decking is very adaptable – brilliant for a sloping garden, where you can make several timber terraces linked with steps, but on level ground you can build up decking on two levels to make it look more interesting.  You can also plant through holes, build on stilts and do all sorts of things  you couldn’t do with a couple of tons of paving slabs if you’d chosen to have a patio instead. For the fashion-follower, decking is the hottest must-have garden ingredient.  

Setting Up a Backyard Theater

Setting Up a Backyard Theater


Do you enjoy entertaining your family and your friends with the latest and greatest within the world of film? Well, a backyard theater might be exactly the right fit for you. It isn’t as simple to set up as it sounds, though. Backyard home theaters require a good level of planning, a clear head, and some equipment you may not have at home right now.

Myrtle Plant

Myrtle Plant

Myrtle (Myrtus) has been grown as a decorative plant for thousands of years and yet it is still a rarity indoors. The small oval leaves are shiny and aromatic – the white flowers appear in large numbers in summer. In the fall the purple berries appear. In midwinter, many of the shoots are crowned by a series of radiating pink stems that are themselves topped with small heather-pink stars. These are immature fruits that eventually berry into purple-black, but in their unformed state they brighten the foliage and give this ancient, egg-shaped evergreen extra sparkle.
