Product Reviews Tell All
Customers share opinions in online reviews—more than 18,000 online now! Reviews are featured with each offer, right below the picture of the product.

Leaf Shredding is Fun

Leaf Shredding is Fun
Turn fallen leaves into a crumbly topping for your garden. The Deluxe Electric Leaf Shredder. Adding leaves in small amounts ensures good results.

Craving Leaf Mold

Craving Leaf Mold
It’s not a disease—just finely shredded leaves. Gardening could be an inexpensive hobby, but at my house it’s not. One of my many springtime splurges is the purchase (at $8.50 per bag) of six to ten bags of cocoa mulch. I use it in my perennial beds, applying it by the handful and only in […]

Flexible Clematis Support

2008 will be my 30th year in the garden. But it’s only my third year wearing garden gloves. Until a couple years ago, I never wore gloves in the garden unless I was pruning roses or raspberries. There are a couple of reasons I was so resistant to wearing gloves. First is that living in […]
