The Sixth Annual Great Gardens and Landscaping Symposium
Plan to attend the Sixth Annual Great Gardens and Landscaping Symposium, which takes place on April 24 & 25 at The Mirror Lake Inn and Resort in Lake Placid, NY. You'll find a wealth of ideas and inspiration from nationally and regionally renowned gardening professionals, including Tara Dillard, Paul Tukey, Dr. Mark Starrett, and Kerry Mendez, as well as a variety of drawings and giveaways. All this at a world-class, four diamond resort! Visit the symposium Web site,, for more information and a schedule of workshops. Space is limited for some workshops and the event sells out quickly so reserve your space now.

Web Finds

Vegetable Varieties for Gardeners
The Vegetable Varieties for Gardeners Web site is a citizen science program of Cornell University's Department of Horticulture. The site invites gardeners to submit information about different varieties they've grown, then compiles the data to help you decide what to grow in your own garden. If you're overwhelmed by the number of tomato or pepper varieties, this is a good place to start your decision process!
