Rose Pruning Methods
Need help with rose pruning? No, we're not talking about someone who'll come out and prune your roses for you (although wouldn't that be nice!). Instead, here's the next best thing. Rose Pruning Methods from Texas Aggie Horticulture will help get you up to speed on the basics of pruning the most common types of roses.

Favorite or New Plant

Need a plant that will do well spilling over the sides of a container or growing as a ground cover in sunny areas, and that offers culinary benefits as well? Oregano can fill the bill. It makes a great ornamental ground cover and does very well in sunny areas that tend to dry out a bit. The leaves are a staple in seasoning tomato-based sauces as well as for seasoning soups, seafood, and grilled meats.
