Thinking about planting your favorite annual flower – impatiens – this year? Think again. A plague called downy mildew is wreaking havoc with impatiens in the Midwest, so buyer beware.
Choose from beautiful, hardy alternatives, like begonias, coleus or New Guinea impatiens.
For vegetable gardens, new varieties of tomatoes and peppers are available this year. Grafted tomato and pepper plants can result in double of the production in the same space.
