Edible Theme Gardens with Rosalind Creasy
On Thursday, April 5, from 9:30 a.m. to noon, Rosalind Creasy, the "Mother" of edible landscaping, will discuss and show slides of edible gardens with various themes -- from Italian specialties to edible flowers to a rainbow of colorful vegetables to attract children. Rosalind is best known for her books: The Complete Book of Edible Landscaping, which introduced the concept of including edible plants in your ornamental landscape; and Cooking from the Garden, which covers a vast new palette of vegetables and fruits. Book signing follows. $20 payable at the door ($100 for eight-week series). For information and registration, call (626) 821-4623, or e-mail:

Clever Gardening Technique

Seedling Separators
An old fork or spoon will separate and lift seedlings gently from flats, and the handle (or a pencil or ice cream stick) can be used to ease transplants from individual growing pockets in segmented flats --- all with very little damage to the tender roots.
