A gardener’s resolutions, as the new year begins, are modest ones. The world won’t end if a lawn isn’t mowed on schedule, though it will grow better if it is. There is no crime in growing too many tomato seedlings, even if the time could be spent more wisely. Nevertheless, a promise to do better by a plant is an act of optimism, focus and clarity. If, for you, 2016 was a year of loss, this is one loss that you can do something about.
"Resolve to Grow a Better Rosemary Plant. Your Dinner Guests Will Thank You." is from the January 05, 2017 Lifestyle section of The Washington Post. It was written by Barbara Damrosch and narrated by Sam Scholl.
