Gardening Guide Introduction to Our Gardening Guide
People have sought the pleasures of gardening since the earliest times. The satisfaction of nurturing growing plants cannot be measured, but gardening provides a creative outlet through working with color, shape, texture, fragrance and light in a way that nothing else can. It is a proven stress reliever, with studies showing that gardeners live longer!

Gardening can also be a very practical pursuit. Homegrown vegetables cost far less, can be tastier eaten 'fresh off the vine,' offer the home gardener far more variety, and can be much healthier. Plants are also good for the environment, since they clear both indoor and outdoor air of toxic materials, a process that makes good gardeners good citizens.
