RE: Tennessee Gardener Article


Bonnie, 

Sounds like a wonderful area to live with all those gardens to explore!

You should volunteer at the nature center if possible. You learn many
other concepts of gardening there along with eco systems. Most of them
are really hard pressed for volunteers and would welcome you even if you
could only come once in awhile. Must warn you though, you will leave
with a different attitude about grass, seems you find yourself ripping
it out and planting something more suitable for wildlife.
