Welcome to Maine Home Garden News! We hope you enjoyed a beautiful and bountiful growing season last year. Growing and caring for plants can be a rewarding and fulfilling activity.

I hope the information in each issue of this newsletter helped you appreciate the beauty and wonder of plants in your yard and gardens.

Our next issue is coming in March 2017! Until then, peruse our archives for gardening information from past years.

In addition to this practical newsletter, your local UMaine Extension county office is available to assist you with gardening advice and information. The University of Maine Cooperative Extension also has numerous fact sheets and video clips to help you learn and grow.
