Start seeds of basil, parsley, cilantro, oregano, thyme and chives for growing indoors this winter. Herbs require lots of light for best growth. Place the pots of newly planted seeds near a window that receives direct sunlight most of the day. Your plants will be happiest there all winter!
Do not use the stems and berries of invasive Oriental bittersweet for wreaths. Dispose of bittersweet by putting into the trash to be sure it doesn’t spread.
Don’t cut down hydrangeas with colored flowers or they won’t bloom in the spring. You can cut off the flower heads for neatness.
Collect seeds from annuals and perennials that you wish to grow next year.
