Pennsylvania garden and greenhouse lovers may be interested to know that the Pennsylvania Farm Show began over the weekend.
Horticulture lovers can gain entry for just $10 and “will be in awe” of what they find there, according to the Pocono Record.
The newspaper has also published a to-do list for 2010 gardening, which includes ordering seeds now so that they can be planted indoors or in the greenhouse in February.
Gardening correspondent Joe Lamp‘l explained that he has a number of things which he plans to do this year, including installing window boxes for plants, which he said can add a lot to the look of a home.
He also suggested that using containers can be an “easy addition for high impact” and that seed catalogues can be a gold mine of knowledge if gardeners actually read them instead of throwing them on a compost heap.
Growers may wish to follow Mr Lamp‘l‘s lead by taking pictures of their green space throughout the year to create a visual timeline of how things grow throughout the seasons.
