April is National Garden Month! To celebrate, we have compiled the most asked gardening questions. Check back every week to see if I have answered your questions!
1) What Is A Biennial, Perennial, Annual?
Perennials are plants that will last for more than two years. Flowering perennials grow and bloom over the spring, summer or even fall, die back every autumn and winter and return again from their root-stock. A few of my favorite “sun” perennials include Mallow, Bee Balm, Peony, and Hollyhock. Of the “shade” variety, I love Bleeding Hearts, Hos... Continue Reading

Good afternoon my LCNY fashionistas and Happy April first! The sun is shining, the birds are singing and it feels like spring. The Davies household is a rockin'.

When you think of spring cleaning, does the garage come to mind? Or maybe your backyard shed? I tend to forget about my garage until it’s impossible to find anything, the piles start tumbling, and there really isn’t an inch of space to fit that one last basketball. Then, I have to organize—and more importantly, weed out the stuff. Out of all the storage places at my house, I think the garage is one of the toughest things to tidy, considering how many things we really do need—not to mention it’s typically a “man space.” Over the years, ho...
