Good Afternoon Great-Gardeners,

Happy New Year! I hope you are starting it off well.

With the New Year comes a new beginning. I have been working on our website to create a fresh new look. Unfortunately, I broke it, well at least for a day. If you tried to get onto the website last night it gave an error message.  I was trying to teach myself some website programing and it didn't go the way I planned.

Thankfully my husband was not mad and was able to fix it. He said that I have to learn by making mistakes and eventually over time it will get easier.

Kind of reminds me of gardening. You learn by trowel and error.
As a reminder the store is open throughout the winter for any gardening needs.  Monday – Saturday: 9 am – 5 pm and closed on Sunday.

As always, if you have any questions, comments or suggestions, hit reply. I would love to hear from you. Have a great-gardening day.

House Plant Appreciation Day
January 10th
Houseplant Appreciation Day was established by The Gardener’s Network as a way to remind people about the benefits of having houseplants inside the home.

If you are a gardener, they give you an opportunity to play in the dirt, until spring arrives in the far, distant future.

If you’re wondering how to celebrate National Houseplant Appreciation Day, the following are a few of the best green plants for your home or office environment.
No home should be without an Aloe. Easy to grow these plants require little attention to thrive. Not only do they filter the air of harmful toxins, but the leaves can be used to sooth cuts and burns, making them a great addition in a sunny kitchen window.

Aloe has been listed as one of the top five plants to have in your bedroom for a good night’s sleep.
Peace Lily
Peace Lily are associated with peace, purity and innocence.

In feng shui practices, the peace lily is said to neutralize or balance radiation emissions from televisions and computers; it is also utilized to balance a home's energy to establish a sense of peace and serenity.

It is listed as one of NASA's top ten plants to remove toxins from the air.
English Ivy

Studies on English Ivy have shown it to remove mold spores from the air making it easier for those with mold allergies to breath.

Listed as one of the top plants to have in the bedroom along with Aloe.

Herbal Recipes
Garlic Rosemary Knots
3/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
3 tablespoons chopped fresh rosemary
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
All-purpose flour, for dusting

Heat oven to 375 degrees. In a small bowl, combine olive oil, rosemary, garlic, salt, and pepper. Line two large baking sheets with parchment, and set aside.

    Working on a floured work surface, cut dough into 2-ounce portions. Roll each to an 11-inch length. Dip each in oil mixture; tie into a knot. Place knots at least 1¼ inches apart on prepared baking sheets.

Cover with plastic wrap; set aside to rise until dough does not spring back when pressed with a finger, about 20 minutes. Bake until golden, about 20 minutes. Cool on a wire rack 5 minutes before serving.

Feng Shui
I never heard of Feng Shui until I started working at a garden center. For those of you who are not familiar with Feng Shui.  

Feng Shui is the Chinese art or practice of positioning objects, buildings, and furniture, based on a belief in patterns of yin and yang and the flow of chi that have positive and negative effects.

In Feng Shui indoor plants play an important role by acting as natural air filters and provide good chi in the room.

There are many parts to Feng Shui and it can be very difficult to explain, but it does make for interesting reading when you have the time.
