Sanitation is the first defense against keeping pests out of the greenhouse and minimizing insect and mite infestations. Princettia euphorbias offer opportunities to be presented as a premium gift plant year-round. The ever-changing appearance of Schizachyrium scoparium ‘Standing Ovation’ gives it a lasting presence in the landscape. This new multi-seed pellet is an easy and economical way to grow basil. Multi-seasonal landscape appeal makes St. John’s-Wort a showstopper for sunny gardens, small places and containers. With the many advancements in technology and growing practices, lighting options have become more plentiful. The future of the horticulture industry is in very capable hands!
