Don't Just Ditch the Tree

The relatives are gone, the kids are back in school, and the Christmas tree has shed its last needle. Yes, it's the end of the holiday season and time to say good-bye to your once live and beautiful tree. But don't just throw it on the trash heap (or into your neighbor's yard at 3 am).

Bulb Do's and Don'ts

Some simple things to remember about bulbs: ALWAYS plant bulbs in borders or beds with good drainage. Planting bulbs in well-drained soil is vital and the most important instruction we can give you. DO NOT use any strong commercial fertilizer or fresh manure when planting bulbs.
