  • Winter Bird Feeding Basics
    Winter is a time for repose and reflection, and many gardeners take to bird feeding to fill their need for color, texture and interaction with their landscape. If you are an old hand at feeding our winter visitors, or a newbie, these tips from the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources will guide you in feeder/feed placement and selection.
  • Overcoming the Roadblocks to Healthy Houseplants
    Do you love houseplants but have difficulty keeping them healthy? Are your houseplants overgrowing their space? Are you not sure when to water or fertilize?
  • Top Ten Performing Annuals
    Each year, hundreds of cultivars are trialed at the University of Minnesota West Central Research and Outreach Center (WCROC), Horticulture Display Garden in Morris, MN. The Garden is open to the public for self-guided tours throughout the growing season and provides a unique opportunity to compare the performance of bedding plant cultivars under our region’s growing conditions.
