Why I Love Sweet Peas
by Brenda Powell
Why do I love Sweet Peas? This was the question I asked myself to stir the creativity in my brain. I chose the subject for this blog, after all. I knew we received a good selection of sweet peas in at the nursery. Sweet Peas are something that can be planted early (like now) from seed or starts. They are fragrant (most of them at least) and they make a nice cut flower. I could tell you all of that in about 3-5 sentences, but that doesn’t tell you why I am particularly enamored with this lovely flower.
To find the answer, as always I searched in my memory. The first thing that came to mind was my grandfather and his garden on the Puget Sound.

In the last few weeks, we have received our biggest supply of Hellebores. There are 29 varieties. When they arrive, I am like a kid in a candy store whose parent has told her she may only pick one sweet treat. Every year I want to buy them all, they’re so sweet, but with the size of my garden, I only allow myself to plant one Hellebore. What’s not to love about them? They add color in the winter and are quite charming in appearance. Plus they do great in containers and my containers always need a pick me up in February. I can’t resist the allure of these painted ladies.

How can you create a garden with 12 months of color that’s easy to maintain and tolerates weather extremes? Conifers are the answer. Conifers are like living sculptures that you can use to accent and create the bones or framework of your garden.
Conifers offer an incredible palette of color, texture and form from which to choose the perfect specimen for any spot in your garden. They are classified in sizes ranging from miniature (less than 1’ in 10 years) and dwarf (1-6’ in 10-15 years) to intermediate (6-15’ in 10-15 years) and large (15’ or more in 10-15 years).
Experts Agree House Plants Are Good for You!
by Charlotte Campbell
My vocation as a houseplant manager met my love of science fiction when I learned about NASA’s research using houseplants to purify air in sealed environments. The original goal was life-support for moon bases (cool), but in the process the scientists found out that indoor plants can actually absorb toxins from the air and break them down into harmless by-products. Not only the chemicals released by practically every man-made material (carpets, clothing, cleaning products, computers, etc.), but also the “bio-effluents” that all humans emit.
