Spend a few minutes the next time you’re out watering to reinvigorate your potted plants for the rest of the summer.
The Pennsylvania Horticultural Society has been honoring local beautification efforts for decades, and they’ve just launched a new Gardening and Greening Contest. Enter and win.
Sometimes it seems like too much bother or expense to make festive holiday pots but a simple solution could be just outside your door.
