How-To Videos

We are word people, having cut our teeth on Strunk and White, but we are familiar with the aphorism about pictures. We also know that it's no fun reading long blocks of text on a screen, even if they offer information that is timely and useful. At our nursery, we are engaged daily in practically every known form of gardening. So we put two and two together, bought a camera, and went into the video business.

Below, you see the results of our video efforts to date. If you have ideas for topics we should address, please send them to [email protected].
