March 21st is the first official day of spring. The daffodils are coming up and ready to bloom. I'm starting to think about gardening. The Colorado State University Cooperative Extension Service is a great source for gardening information. Their Horticulture Online website is packed with gardening tips: fact sheets on gardening topics, a database of Colorado plants, lists of plants suited to Colorado's climate, and data on managing insect problems to name a few.
Recent titles from our collection include:
Attracting Butterflies to the Garden
Rock Garden Plants
Native Herbaceous perennials for Colorado landscapes
Homeowners' Guide: Alternative pest management for the lawn and garden.
