Many common houseplants do a fine job of removing pollutants from the air around you. Formaldehyde, benzene, xylene, carbon monoxide -- all of these and more are more common in our homes than you might think. Even NASA has researched the benefits of houseplants and keeps them in their various installations. What is great is that you don't have to have a green thumb to be successful with most of these plants! To learn how easy it can be to care for houseplants, check out our FREE webinar that will be presented live on Jan 19th at 11:00 am. We will be going live on Instagram and Facebook!

The cooler days are here! Though it doesn't seem like it, there is still plenty to do in the garden!

The colder days are coming, and that means it's time for winter care in your yard. Not only are your plants battling the cold, but they are also fighting against the dry weather. The best tool to have in your arsenal? Mulch! 

An unattended pile of leaves may take two to three years to decompose! So take a look at some tips for composting your fall leaves!

 

- Fall leaves are a valuable resource because they keep garden soil productive. By following a few tried and true composting techniques, you can optimize fall-leaf composting.

- The minimum size for compost bins is three feet by three feet by three feet. Bins larger than six feet across may restrict oxygen infiltration and slow decomposition.

Reducing Snow Load on Branches

- Evergreens may need to be lightly shaken to remove snow loads from branches during snowstorms. Snow can weigh the branches down which will change the shape of the tree and can break branches. A great way to do this is with a household broom. Using the end with the bristles, gently tap the underside of each branch to shake the snow off.

Wildflowers are ideal for a more natural, less formal appearance. A planting of wildflowers will become a complex, interactive plant community, not just a collection of individual plants. You may choose to model wildflower plantings after surrounding native-plant communities or use wildflowers to provide bold splashes of color. 

The term “wildflower” does not necessarily imply that such plants are native to our area. Rather, it refers to an overall “look” or “feel” of an informal planting. Many plants in wildflower seed mixes are not native to Colorado.
