The November/December issue of Northern Gardener has been out for a couple of weeks already, and it’s packed with holiday ideas for gardeners. Dee Goerge has two holiday-themed stories in the issue: one on a wreath camp in northern Minnesota and the other her roundup of gifts for gardeners. The camp sounds like a fun event for a girlfriends’ group, quilting club or even a garden club. Among the gifts, well, I really like the look of the Womanswork high performance gloves, a brand of gloves tailored for women’s hands and work styles.
Another story you do not want to miss in this issue is Michelle Mero Riedel’s piece on using orange in the garden. A photographer and U of M Master Gardener, Michelle’s article not only tells you how to use orange flowers and foliage to brighten your garden designs, it shows you through her vibrant photographs. The issue is available at Barnes and Noble bookstores, many Lund’s and Byerly’s stores, garden centers, and at the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum gift shop. Check it out.
