Unseasonably warm weather has many of us poking around in our gardens. That yard debris you didn’t get to last fall may be calling to you.

In the Garden: Garden mistakes

I want to share a mistake I made several years ago that I didn’t realize was a mistake until last summer. I like to call this “Wrong plant; wrong place.” (This was before I learned the Master Gardener mantra: Right plant; right place.)

In the Garden: Ornamental grasses can add zip to your garden

Dependable, easy care ornamental grasses are top-notch candidates for year-around interest. The majority are prized for their airy, graceful shapes that shimmer with just a hint of breeze. It’s an interesting group of mostly trouble-free plants with many that thrive in our climate.

In the Garden: Start planning now for a fire-wise fire season

North Central Washington is a complex natural environment to live in. Fire has been a part of this place for millennia — erasing and re-writing the landscape and enlivening the forest with new growth while eliminating the overstock of debris and turning it back into accessible nutrients.
