Parsley, Outdoor Furniture, Insect Repellants and Plant Empowerment

Ellen and C.L. address more questions from the Northwest Flower and Garden Festival in Seattle. We discuss the herb that gets no respect, Parsley, plus keeping outdoor furniture dry, escaping the insect invasion in your outdoor living areas, and how we started a podcast…and how you might start a garden business too!

With thanks to our sponsor:

Parsley is a biennial – it grows one year, blooms the next, and then it dies. So although it might make it back after the winter in your herb garden, it will quickly book and go to seed. Plant this fresh every spring for great parsley leaves all summer and fall.

Put your cushions out on sunny days, but bring them in at night or when rain is predicted. Those in rainy climates can’t have upholstered outdoor furniture outside at all times.

This outdoor craft studio was designed to keep the insects away – see the fan at the top of this structure? That’s the smart way to repel bugs.
