First-Aid for Storm-Damaged Trees
Ice storms not only break limbs but also gardener's hearts. Knowing what to do during and after an ice or wind storm is crucial in successfully saving as many trees and shrubs as possible. The University of Missouri Extension provides information on First Aid for Storm-Damaged Trees.


Getting Fit with Gardening
Looking for ways to both get in shape and have a beautiful yard? Authors Bunny Guinness and Jacqueline Knox offer a program to combine exercise and gardening in Garden Your Way to Health and Fitness (Timber Press, 2008). Not only is there information on how to turn working in the landscape into an exercise regimen but how to handle yourself in the garden without getting hurt. Plus, there are creative ideas for designing garden spaces and information on garden care.
