A public open-house will be held Thursday February 13th, 2020 6:30-7:30 pm in North Tonawanda City Hall, 216 Payne Avenue to introduce the design concept.

When is a good time to start seeds for annuals? I want to add a bunch of zinnias, cosmos, Lantana - etc. I've always bought them and have never done them from seed - but I want to give it a go.
hello, since your group are great gardeners, is it possible to start seedings in a milk containers in this WNY weather? Please forgive me for asking on this fb page.
Can someone identify this? I picked it up as the saddest plant ever and it just exploded. Boy does it attract honey bees and carpenter bees.
I have no idea where else to ask this - but has anyone tried experimenting with growing clover as a living mulch for their flowerbeds - especially those designed to attract pollinators?
Hello there, do you need small bird houses?
