    Growing Amaryllis with Charlie Nardozzi

    Holidays are often about visiting friends and family and gift giving. One of the most popular holiday gift plants is the amaryllis. This southern hemisphere bulb blooms in December and January in gardens in places such as South Africa. For northern, cold weather gardeners, we can have some winter color, too, by growing it indoors. Luckily, amaryllis are easy bulbs to grow. So, if you got an amaryllis for the holidays or just crave some fresh flowers in winter, try growing this exotic beauty. Here's how.

    Gardeners have lots of examples of how to beautify a fence, arbor or pergola. You can grow a variety of climbing plants that will grab the wire or wood and create an attractive wall in your garden room.

  • How to Elevate your Tomatoes with VELCRO® Brand

    How to elevate your tomatoes

    Now that your tomatoes are planted and growing strong, before they get too big, now is the time to think vertical. Tomatoes will naturally sprawl on the ground if left on their own. This leads to more disease on the leaves and fruits and lower production over all. The best solution is to elevate your tomatoes by keeping them growing vertical all summer long. Not only will your plants be happier, you'll be able to save space, too!

    Ornamental Grass

    Gardeners are always looking for good looking, low maintenance perennials. While perennial flowers add color, ornamental grasses add much more. Ornamental grasses are the darlings of the garden world for many reasons. They provide interest to a garden in all four seasons with their unique leaf blades and flower shapes and textures. Ornamental grasses are low maintenance, drought tolerant, make great cut flowers and can grow in most areas of the country.
