Ornamental Cabbage and Kale
Plant colorful ornamental cabbage and kale for vibrantly rich reds, blues, and purples to accentuate other garden colors all winter long. Use them in window boxes or planters, to line walkways, or as accent plants. You can even use the foliage in flower arrangements.

Clever Gardening Technique

No More Lost Clippers
Paint tool handles -- especially hand clippers -- with a bright color of exterior enamel paint so you can find them easily when they're hiding in foliage, mulch, or perennials.
