With a new catalog comes the opportunity to try new products in your garden. This year we have added a large variety of exciting new seeds, plants and gardening supplies. Over the next few weeks we will introduce you to some of our new for 2018 offerings to help you get insight into what will work best in your garden this year.
We know you have a lot of choices, but many people have limited space when it comes to growing their garden. That is why, this week we are showcasing some of our favorite new vegetables to the Jung Seed Co. catalog that not only work in large spaces but do great in containers or small gardens.
December can be filled with snow and mud – we garden addicts are needing a garden-fix in a bad way. Creating some amazing container gardens to display in a sunny window is a must. Try planting these amazing poinsettia ball containers which I originally spotted at the Chicago Botanic Garden greenhouse.
Make the balls small or large and give your holiday guests something creative to talk about for the holiday season.

There is no denying that one of the simplest and most gratifying ways to enrich our lives is to make plants a part of them. Plants improve our environment, beautify our homes and gardening has been proven to be one of the best ways to relieve stress and escape from the hectic world we all live in. If you are new to gardening or live with limited space, then container gardening may just be the perfect path for you to take towards living a greener life.
