Tips for Successful Digital Photo Submissions

    • Include yourself in the picture!
    • Save your photos as high-quality JPGs. TIF and PSD files are fine too. Don't save as GIFs or indexed color, as they limit the color and make your garden less spectacular. We resize large images to 600 pixels wide and 72 dpi.
    • When naming your files, please don't use spaces, apostrophes, quotations, commas, or parentheses. For instance, Tom's Garden '02 (pansies).jpg is bad, but tomsgarden02_pansies.jpg is fine.
    • Try to send your images as an attachment. We cannot open fancier HTML emails with the images embedded.
    • Please do not send duplicates or resend your submissions.
    • We appreciate scanned or digital photos that have been oriented correctly (rightside up and not sideways).
    • Don't forget to include a description of the photos. We enjoy the stories behind your gardens!

Gardening Tip of the Day

  • Trees can be safely planted in the fall until about 4 to 6 weeks before the ground freezes. When planting, make sure the hole is at least twice the size of the tree’s root ball. Loosen root ball and spread out roots before planting so roots are encouraged to grow outward. Stake younger trees to withstand winter winds using a loose fabric or piece of rubber hose to avoid injuring bark. Avoid using wire that can cut into the trunk as the tree grows. Add a few inches of mulch around root zone of the tree, but keep mulch at least three or four inches away from the base of the stem to prevent rot. Add some slow-release fertilizer in early spring.
