Home & Garden

  • Delight in gardening
    A couple a summers ago, James and Lynda Moore got a call from a local Do-it Best hardware store.
  • Putting unused spaces to work
    Many of us have one room in the house that doesn’t really have a job.
  • Garlic chives fit for gardens
    Is it a weed or a garden plant? Garlic chives are among those plants – paulownia tree, Jerusalem artichoke, mint and anise hyssop are others – that can parade under either guise.

Summer color

For quick, effective and beautiful summer coverage of garden arbors, fences and arches that will last into October, sow seeds of a fast-growing legume named purple hyacinth bean.

Soak the seeds overnight in tepid water for rapid germination. The vine has attractive white and purple flowers and deep purple seed pods.
