Great news from Maryland’s Cooperative Extension Service – which just happens to be routinely cited one of the best in the country. It’s their bi-monthly newsletter, “full of good gardening information and links” as one garden clubber wrote to tell me. The latest issue is right here (in PDF), and it contains an update on the fabulous Grow It Eat It program and plenty of short-but-sweet tips about beneficial insects, sheet composting, floating row covers, and fall pruning.
Go to their website and click the box “Subscribe to E-newsletter” in the middle of the page. If you still have questions, call the horticulture consultants at 800-342-2507 (8-1, M-F) and they’ll walk you through the steps.
And Visit the Home and Garden Information Center Website
The newsletter I hope you just subscribed to is yet another excellent publication by which Maryland’s Extension Service provides outstanding information to the public, and delivers it well. I refer to it extensively in my writing and gardening, and I’ve heard that gardeners (including Master Gardeners) in other states use it rather than the resources provided by their own state. So I’m just saying – it’s good.
