||So Many Topics, So Little Time...
There are so many topics worth getting into at this particular time of the year, and yet there's so very little to actually do over the next week because the weather is still uncooperative. Nevertheless, I was pondering what kind of email tip to do for our subscribers this week, and after looking through the GardenLine tip archives; I decided it was time again for one of those "cumulative reminders."
What that means is that I've compiled many of the previous email tips into a four-in-one party. Email questions are easily outpacing phone calls by a 5-to-1 margin, and fortunately for me, many of them get referred back to email tips we've done on these particular topics.

It's at the Garden Center at Herman park at 7:30 tonight February 10th, and you can get directions at the Rose Society Webpage www.houstonrose.org In the meantime, here's what I put together for email tip subscribers over 2 years ago, I affectionately refer to as
And last, but certainly not least, not only is this the time of the year we prune rose and crape myrtles without fail, it's also that time when we try to "cheat" Mother Nature just a bit and get some tomatoes in the ground, despite the weather. And here's a great list of GardenLine maxims to keep in mind if you want a successful vegetable garden this year.
