My Hortico order came, and the shipping was one hundred thirty dollars. Ouch. There were a few substitutions and backorders, but everything seemed in good order. I could have saved close to three hundred dollars not including gas and tolls if I drove there to pick it up, due mostly to the shipping charges and the exchange rate.

Until recently, Rosemarie Hanson gardened in the alkaline soil of New York’s North Country. Now she gardens in the Finger Lakes region of NY, where the soil is acid and the deer are a plague! She is particularly interested in fragrant plants, old garden roses, tulips, gardening for kids, and kitchen gardens.

In its own way, frost may be one of the most beautiful things to happen in your garden all year . . . Don’t miss it. Like all true beauty, it is fleeting. It will grace your garden for but a short while this morning. . . . For this moment, embrace frost as the beautiful gift that it is.
