What Houzz contributors are saying:

Grow more herbs and vegetables at home. In the olden days, people used plant remedies as cures for everything from fever to infertility. If you’ve got a sunny garden with well-drained soil, think about adding rosemary, thyme or lavender in dry areas; grow peppermint in pots (to contain the roots) and make your own tea infusions. Make this the year to experiment with new herbs and kitchen staples like onions, garlic, spinach or cabbage.Visit Colonial Williamsburg: A visit to the garden and nursery will give you a look at the many plants grown during the 18th century. The 68th Garden Symposium at Colonial Williamsburg, cosponsored by The American Horticultural Society and Organic Gardening magazine, takes place April 5, 2014.If you can’t make this year’s symposium, follow the blog by head gardener Wesley Greene, who posts about the colonial garden. You can learn a lot from Wesley’s posts, which include historical snippets from old gardening calendars and journals. You can also get the recently published book Vegetable Gardening the Colonial Williamsburg Way to learn more about growing heirlooms.More: Vegetables and Flowers Mix in Beautiful Edible Gardens
