Hi. I finally got myself signed up to the HGC blog. It was easy as pie.
Does anyone have any advice for getting rid of voles who are eating my Hostas? I have been salvaging little pieces of root plate and relocating them to Brewster. I would love to get control of the voles here, though. Thanks. Shirley

Gardens in Southern France, June 2011

This summer we traveled to the Dordogne and Lot regions of southern France. Everyone has a garden whether a yard full of flowers and vegetables, containers of flowers set outside, or roses and wisteria climbing over stone walls. There are roses everywhere!
