Nashville Lawn & Garden Show
Plan a trip to Tennessee for the Nashville Lawn & Garden Show, March 2 through 6 at the Tennessee State Fairgrounds. The focus this year is on ways to introduce some "jazz" into your gardens. The show includes display gardens, exhibit booths, and a lecture series. For more information, visit the Nashville Lawn & Garden Show Web site:


The Encyclopedia of Seed Germination
Most seed packets include relevant information on starting seeds, and if you're a casual seed-starter that's probably all you need. However, if you want to try your hand at growing more challenging seeds, or if you just like to have a reference handy, consider the
Ball Culture Guide: The Encyclopedia of Seed Germination, 3rd ed.
(Ball Publishing, 1999; $49.95). As the name implies, this book provides the germination needs for the seeds of about 300 plants, including vegetables, annual and perennial flowers, and ornamental grasses.
