    This is so interesting. I read the word before but didn't really understand. I will keep my eyes open now and try to add to the information. I found that using lilac blossoms for planting dates extremely interesting.

    Most of those planting tips are not usable down here, I usually try to go by the moon phases but fail at that sometimes too. :(
