5 Tips to Keep on Gardening

8 Herbs to Grow This Summer

You can really get creative and not just grow them together in their own containers but add them to your floral containers as well. In the past, I have used chives instead of spikes for height in the center or back of larger container. I've also added trailing herbs like different varieties of thyme to the front of containers.

Interesting Shrubs - Really?

In our effort to add really unique perennials and annuals to our gardens, we can overlook the value of shrubs. Maybe it's because they can seem a bit boring. But shrubs can provide a great filler for larger beds and become a nice backdrop for flowering perennials and annuals.My favorite reason to grow shrubs is that they can provide multiple seasons of interest.
Read on to find 4 of my favorite shrubs that add color, texture and interest to my yard.
