Garden Tips Hints and Cool Things

March 9, 2012

A Cool Thing:

Read this interesting article on possible future agriculture using LEDs, climate and water control indoors.

Tip:

1)   Want butterflies to your garden? Provide a water source like a shallow bowl filled with a few stones for the butterflies to land on and grab a drink.

FYI:

1) A ‘Search Box’ is now added at the top of the sidebar. This will allow you to search for a topic, name, etc. within In and Around the Garden. If the full article does not appear, simply click on the article’s title.

2) In and Around the Garden now has it’s own Facebook user name:  facebook.com/inandaroundthegarden
