Understanding the Different Types of Corn

63039276.UQtYQrsjThere are many different types of corn, with the two most common types being sweet and field corn. Within these two main groups are many distinct and separate varieties, which are often categorized based on the shape of the kernel. Each variety has its advantages and disadvantages: some are bred for particularly high yields, while others are bred for their taste, and still others are bred for a particular shape.

Environment Conscious approach – We sell trees in Root Pouches

Award winning technology takes a mixture of recycled natural fibers and recycled bottles otherwise destined for our landfills and turns them into a lightweight, breathable geotextile that is then crafted into plant pots that breakdown (degrade) in 12 to 36 months once they are planted in the ground. These fabric pots are wonderful for plants – roots can cool in summer, and not suffocate from over-watering. The fabric material lets water permeate so there’s sufficient drainage without holes in the pot.

A healthier alternative for the environment!

Mysterious world of petunias

Choices can be overwhelming

It is getting more and more confusing these days just to pick all time favorite Petunia for your summer garden. New names and kinds introduced every year and adds screaming that each of them is better than the one before. What is the real best choice?! As many other occasions in life there is no straight answer… Some do better in pots, some in the garden. Some have big blossoms but doesn’t tolerate wind, some have small charming flowers and and do just right in summer heat. It is not the case when one fits all. I decided to do my part – do little research for my own knowledge and share it all with you. Hope that will help you to choose!
