  1. Connie,
    Thank you for making these articles available to your readers. There is always more to learn about our surroundings and general gardening.

  2. Could there be a follow-up to the article ‘This Month in the Garden’? More information on cutting back perennials & when for more bushy growth & flowers.
    Love your newsletter.
