Scarlet Rose Mallow and One Dark NightScarlet Rose Mallow and One Dark Night
By Sharon, September 1, 2015

It started like this: She leaned over with her hand cupped around her mouth, and with her soft low voice against my ear, she whispered: "Wear yore darkest clothes, chile, an' meet me right here jus' 'fore dark. We're gonna git some rose maller seeds." "Aunt Bett, marshmalla seeds? Marshmallas don't . . . " That hand clamped itself over my mouth before I could say another word or even take a breath.

By dave, August 27, 2015

What is the absolute easiest edible plant you can grow? I spent my entire morning contemplating that question, and nothing came to mind that beats garlic.

The Most Important Garden Pass-AlongThe Most Important Garden Pass-Along
By grannysgarden, August 24, 2015

By jmorth on Aug 31, 2015 9:08 PM, concerning plant: Trumpet Daffodil (Narcissus 'Classic Garden')

Classic Garden is indeed a classic for the garden. Brent and Becky's Bulbs describe it thusly - 'Golden yellow with a bright orange trumpet, this beauty has thick substance and strong stems which keeps its head height and makes it an ideal cutflower! A seedling of N.'Glen Clova', this is a winner in the garden and on the show bench!'
