Pesticide Label Awareness
The EPA is launching an advertizing campaign to remind gardeners to read labels before using pesticides. Their new Web site, Read the Label First, features a generic pesticide label with pop-up text explaining the basic statements found on labels.


The Natural Garden Habitat
The Natural Garden Habitat by Ken Druse (Clarkson Potter, 1994; $40) is the third book in a series of three about "natural" gardening by Mr. Druse. In this one, all the elements come together. Homeowners who want a gorgeous landscape will be able to use this book to create a beautiful yard that also introduces Mother Nature back into the garden. The book features inspirational photos, and it shows the results that really can be achieved using this approach.
