Humbolt Botanical Garden Home Tour
Home Garden Tours are a fun way to get inspired and see what other gardeners are doing on the home front. This year's Humbolt Botanical Home Garden Tour takes place in Arcata, Fieldbrook and McKinleyville on June 27, 2010 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. North Coast is a wonderful place to visit, so plan to stay overnight at one of the many Bed and Breakfast hotels. Registration is required. For more information call 707-442-5139 or visit

Tool or Gardening Product

Pharm Solutions, Inc. Organic Insecticide
Indoor Pharm by Pharm Solutions, Inc. is a totally organic solution for common plant pests including powdery mildew fungus and some insect pests. I use it with great success to control mealy bugs on indoor plants. The product utilizes lavender oil, insecticidal soap and potassium bicarbonate to control a multitude of problems and is certified by the UDSA as organic.
