In the past I’ve mentioned the potential value of discarded holiday greens and–if you’re snow-free–to look out for discarded or unwanted mums. There’s always more and more . . . and more timely seasonal advice to say, so that’s why I wanted to let you know there’s a resource that covers it all.

The Missouri Botanical Garden is among the best examples of its kind worldwide. As a result, although American regions, geography, and climate vary and I’m aware the advice here may not always apply to you, it’s really worth checking out on a regular basis. Note it in your garden journal!

And if you’re not sure about something you find there, leave a comment about it below and I’ll gladly reply!
