With the arrival of spring, we can once again turn our attention to nature – and more specifically, our gardens. If you have acres filled with beds, you may be wondering when and how to prune your roses. Or if you’re short on land, you might be thinking about what kind of plants to use for porch and patio ideas. No matter how big or small your gardening tasks are, it’s time to think about what kind of flowers and plants you want to tackle. For inspiration, walk around your neighborhood, the local arboretum or botanical garden, or a nursery or two to find out what you like and what has the best fighting chance in your woods.
