rather small, green or brown insects that live on plants in large numbers.
Hull, Massachusetts (PRWEB) September 6, 2009
PerennialFlowerGardening.com, an online community and blog that discusses gardening and landscaping, now includes pages on Butterfly Garden Plants, Identifying Garden Pests, and Winter Container Gardening.
The page entitled "Butterfly Garden Plants" from PerennialFlowerGardening.com explains what a butterfly garden is, and which plants to plant in a butterfly garden. The page indicates that individual species of butterfly often prefer different plants based on their needs in terms of both feeding and laying eggs. The page also details reasons why butterfly gardens are important, since butterflies help to pollinate plants and building these gardens helps repopulate butterflies threatened by loss of habitat.
"Identifying Garden Pests" provides two primary examples of the most common garden pests and outlines information which allows readers to identify them. PerennialFlowerGardening.com states that aphids are "rather small, green or brown insects that live on plants in large numbers." Mealybugs, on the other hand, are described as "tiny, whitish-gray, and hairy." Both of these creatures are often protected by ants, a third garden pest briefly mentioned.
PerennialFlowerGardening.com describes the types of plants that grow best in the fall and winter and methods to plant them on the page "Winter Container Gardening." Container plants can thrive in the winters of certain climate zones, and most perennials are reliable plants that survive even some of the harshest winters. However, the page advises that certain container materials are not suitable for extreme cold, and instead suggests the use of metal, stone, or concrete containers for winter container gardening.
PerennialFlowerGardening.com was launched in March of 2009, and since has developed an active community with the addition of a message board. PerennialFlowerGardening.com is also now hosting its very own writing contest, the details of which are available on the message board. iGoMogul is responsible for designing and maintaining the site structure of PerennialFlowerGardening.com.
