How about that -- she's both a revelation of herbs and a guard against early spring aches and pains! Check out "Variety the Spice" in the Kids View department, and Green Thumbs Up.

This week we've been outdoors a lot, and when we've been indoors it's been high energy craziness as we work with our Young Reporters on the new Kids View department. We hope you take a peek at their take on grown-up gardens.

Also this week, a revelation: That our granddaughter has a lot to teach us about herbs, and also about avoiding aches and injuries when we resume gardening each spring. In our Kid's View section and Green Thumbs Up we tell you the details

We've heard, "We miss you! We want to know what to do out there now, each week!" Likewise. So check our Seize Spring article with to-do list, in This Week in Our Gardens.

We hope you'll check into one of our webinars. Join us as we present the premier topics, live and build a stock for the library to come. Email Webinars@GardenAtoZ.com if you want to know more about these chances to learn and be entertained on-line.

Coming up, chances to come out and learn with your hands at our free Garden By Janet & Steven workshops, and also to see us in person at a number of locations, talking about everything from perennials to landscape design. Check our calendar.

We've posted these new items in What's Up

Also: New in the library called Ensemble Weekly Editions

We move recent news into this department as the seasons change, but we also keep adding to this season-based library from our own archives. This week, we've posted:

What's Coming Up 88: Spring start-up, tulip-defending buttercups, deer, peony protection,

What's Coming Up 125: Birds in the garden, watering houseplants, composting, celebrating an oak indoors. 17 pages and over 30 illustrations.

What's Coming Up 141: Composting, mulching choices, pruning roses, rose problems and 17 more articles on 22 pages with 39 illustrations


There are more than 900 articles in the Ensemble Editions library. To use them:

  • Choose a season and scan key word titles.
  • Or use Search on our site with your own keywords. Better than any index:

For instance, for more about pruning roses, type "pruning rose" into the Search field (top right on any page here) and in less than one second you'll have links to two more illustrated articles about pruning roses.
