“No matter how your garden fared through the challenges of the 2012 season, now is a great time to plan new additions, replacements, and strategize for increasing the seasonal beauty and enjoyment of your garden and landscape,” said Myers. “It’s been a tough 12 months with the drought last year to extensive rainfall this spring, so I look forward to sharing information that will help people revive their lawns and gardens after such extreme weather conditions.”
