The best solution to the harmful bugs is releasing some spiders, although that might be a little scary for some women 😉

They don’t seem to have arrived in big numbers. Have seen some ticks though, :-(

I live in the southwest and we didn’t even have a winter this year. Most of the flowers around hear have bloomed already. I have roses blooming in late February. But all of the prettiness will leave us early this year. So i have to take the good with the bad

Thank you mother nature for such a mild spring and delighting us with flourishing beauty weeks early. especially “Cherry Blossom” is my favorite time of year.

You definitely have a green thumb. I’ve been wanting to plant garlic bulbs, but haven’t done so yet. Didn’t know that they have a positive impact on the roses, too.
Thanks for the tips,
Lina

So far, the only things I’ve harvested are fresh peas and loads of parsley. I also have several pots that contain more “rambunctious” herbs – a few different types of mint, some cat nip, creeping thyme, and pineapple sage. There’s plenty of cat nip to keep the household feline content, and a few snippets from the mints help to spark up the occasional cup of hot tea. Planting garlic bulbs around the roses seems to have really perked up the roses – lovely, fragrant blossoms this year, and less trouble with black spot than in the past. I may never grow enough to make much of a dent in the grocery bill, but I certainly do enjoy the little time spent tending my pint-sized bits of paradise.

I like to getting garden ready for the planting season to do that thing you provide a great read and tips about greenscaping practices to attract beneficial insects.
Cheers
