Vegetables Love Flowers Giving Nature a Hand!

Did you know that flowers are the fuel for the fires of nature? Nature has a powerful workforce that will take care of many of the problems we face in the garden, if we attract and sustain the workers. Growing flowers from spring until fall in a pesticide-free garden will open the floodgates to pollinators and beneficial insects, and there's no better way to do that than with a cutting garden right in the vegetable patch. Learn why to grow flowers and how to tend to a cutting garden without pesticides. Flowers in the veggie patch is the way nature intended things to be, and that's why vegetables love flowers!
