RENEGADE GARDENER

The lone voice of horticultural reason

Pansies schmansies. The greatest flaw in the nursery industry is that certain portions of the growers and distributors think that if a plant requires one percent gardening skill, we rubes will never buy it.

During the gardening season, the Renegade Gardener takes a short, soft look at some of his favorite plants (old reliables as well as new introductions) that just might come in handy in your Zone 2 through 4 yard, then has a little fun telling you where to stick it. Satisfaction guaranteed.
