National Garden Bureau Announces 2014 “Year of” Crops
National Garden Bureau will feature three crops in its 2014 “Year of the” program. For annual flowers, 2014 is the “Year of the Petunia”; for vegetables/edibles, it is the “Year of the Cucumber”; and for perennials, it is the “Year of the Echinacea”. The non-profit organization says it selected crops that are easy to grow, genetically diverse with a lot of new varieties to choose from.
