One of your biggest gardening questions has been about aphid control this year. They will seemingly come in out of nowhere, quietly take over and explode their population just when you first notice them. What can be done?
We show you several different methods, both with prevention that you can do right now to greatly help decrease your chance of getting attacked next year, as well as treatment options for when they do show up.

Now that most gardens are slowing down, we need your reviews! How did things do for you this year? Did you have wheelbarrows full of fruits or veggies, or were you surprised by less than expected production? We’d love to know – it helps us keep the best performing varieties and lets others know what might do well (or not so well) in their region.
Honesty and some detail is what helps us and helps other customers make better decisions. “Grew well, very tasty” is not what we need! We’re looking for a little detail as to how the variety did for you, what state you are in, what the climate is like or what challenges you had. These things will really helps someone else make a better decision when choosing their seeds.
To help jog your memory and fire up your reviewing juices, we are drawing 2 – $25 Gift Certificates this month. Each review gives you an entry in the drawing, with a limit of 10 reviews. The first drawing will be on November 15 and the second will be on November 30, with the winner announced in the following Newsletter. The Gift Certificate can be used for anything we offer and is good for a year from the date of the drawing.
To submit a review, just go to our website and click on the variety or item you want to review. Click on the “Review This Item” and give us the details. Your name and state will be published on the review, but your email will not. If you would rather send us an email with the number of reviews, that is just fine.
Good luck and let us hear from you!
