Wordless Wednesday recommends the Smart Sustainable Landscape
- To really care for the environment means changing the way you garden. Start by axing your overgrown plants.
- Get rid of the weaklings. Rose lovers should remember that hybrid tea roses really stink, because they hurt the planet as we take care of them. The rust, the leaf spots, the bugs, the endless ailments these pitiable creatures suffer from, and all the chemicals used to treat them, is not good for the planet, says the book Green Your Home All-in-One For Dummies!
- Put the roses out of their misery and bring home more durable plants. Get rid of all the weak, suffering plants.
- Most important: dump your chemical army! Get rid of those scary bottles of insecticides, weed killers and chemical powders. Put them into a sealed container and take it to your local hazardous waste collection center!
