NGB “Year of the” materials now available
Promotional materials for the Natural Garden Bureau’s (NGB) annual “Year of the” program are now available online at www.ngb.org. Each year the non-profit organization that promotes gardening on behalf of the horticulture industry and its members, encourages the use of the crops it has chosen for its “Year of the” program. For 2017, those crops include: annuals, pansy; vegetables, edibles, brassica; perennials, rose; bulbs, daffodil. The National Garden Bureau Board of Directors selects crops with which consumers can grow successfully. Each “Year of the” crop is easy to grow, genetically diverse and includes lots of new varieties — all traits that will help consumers and their gardens flourish.
