Maintaining the Herb Garden

Hello Mark and Garden Talk Bloggers.  The herb garden can be one of the most productive culinary parts to our gardens.  It can also easily become a messy frustration as well.  Mother Nature has opened the faucet this week and I believe we will see some surge growth in our gardens as our plants respond to this welcome water.  A few…See More

The Poinsettia Story

Hello Mark and Garden Talk Bloggers. Tis the season for everyone's favorite red plant, or possibly pink, white, marble, burgundy, or even a mosaic of colors.

Keep that Fresh Cut Tree Fresh

Hello Mark and Garden Talk Bloggers. It is estimated that over the next 3 weeks nearly 29 million American households will be placing a traditional fresh cut Christmas tree in their homes. We all want to enjoy these trees thru New Years and with proper care from start to finish this can be achieved.

What Porch Pots Already?

Hi Mark and Garden Talk Bloggers. I just got off the roof of the greenhouse hanging Christmas lights. What a great task to get done in this gorgeous weather. This will be short, sweet but important to all those who enjoy the tradition of holiday porch pots. If you plan on stuffing some of your summer or fall mixed containers with fragrant greens this holiday season do not pull the flowers out. Instead cut them off at the base and leave your soil and root mass in your pots. This will serve as a…See More
