Fall 2010 issue of Washington Gardener printed and mailed!

Our Fall 2010 issue of Washington Gardener Magazine has printing and mailed this week. If you are a current subscriber, look for it in your mailbox soon. The cover story is on Vines and Climbers. There is a listing of over 20 vining plants that do well in our Mid-Atlantic gardens.

Also in this issue is the tantalizing Edibles column, “Easy-to-Grow Garlic” by Cindy Brown. She shares her tips on how to grow garlic here in the Mid-Atlantic and the best varieties for our area.

Our Daytrip is to the Monticello, Jefferson’s famous residence outside of Charlottesville, VA. I visited there myself this past summer and have to say his vegetable garden is impressive.

You’ll also find in this issue:

• Russian Sage: A Perennial Pleasure

• Best Bulbs for Soggy Spots

• Confessions of a Plant Hoarder

• Native Woodland Aster

• Seed Bombs for Guerilla Gardening

• Poisonous Weeds

• Battling Stink Bugs

• Nick Weber’s Heritage Rosarium & Dahlia Patch

and much, much more...
