What's in style for the garden this season? Here at Park, we're lucky enough to hear from home gardeners every day! They share with us their plans for the upcoming season, so we thought we'd pass along some recent suggestions to you.
Nearly everything for the 2016 home garden revolves around growing food. But your grandparents' vegetable patch, with its neat rows of crops, isn't the model that today's gardeners are using. (Who has that much space, for one thing?! Not as many of us these days!) Instead, gardeners are mixing up veggies, herbs , and flowering plants , which looks great and results in better pest control. They are bringing the garden onto the patio, deck, balcony, and even indoors. And most of all, they are growing it year-round, no matter what the weather.
So here at Park, we're offering everything you need for today's changing vegetable garden.
Gardeners with outdoor space for growing will find a wider-than-ever selection of vegetable varieties, not to mention companion herbs and flowering plants that will bring "good bugs" (pollinators and pest fighters) into your garden and keep "bad bugs" (destructive insects and nibbling creatures) at bay.
Gardeners who want to grow on the patio, deck, and balcony will find more "container veggies" than ever before from Park: super-compact varieties that can be grown in flowerpots, hanging baskets, and windowboxes.
To keep the goodness coming even when the weather gets rough, gardeners can rely on the wonderful new Easy Tunnels from England, which have revolutionalized the concept of row covers. For larger-scale operations, look at the complete line of coldframes and greenhouses you can assemble yourself. And for just a little frost protection, keep a supply of Kozy Koats and plant protectors at hand.
Indoor gardening has never been easier or more fun. Our bestselling Bio Dome Seed Starting System has a new member, the Pro Dome. You will find a wider range of plant lights and heat mats to accommodate all-sized spaces and budgets. And don't forget mushroom kits and seed sprouting systems to keep fresh food on your plate even during the shortest days of winter!

With proper tending, a 2 oz packet of Bush Beans plants 25 feet of row and yields 20 to 30 pounds! That is $40 or more saved at the store! Learn more about the cost benefits of growing your own garden.
Your community garden can be as formal and organized as you want, but you may want to start the first season with just a few committed gardeners and a couple packets of seed.
