“There are still plenty of yummy veggies you can get planted now (in mid to late June) and get a nice harvest before the summer ends. Most fruiting plants like tomatoes, peppers and eggplants should already be in the ground. Many vegetables though will grow and produce even more quickly from seed planted in early summer when the soil is well warmed up and teeming with life.”
I think it has happened to many of us, we hear or search for some natural home remedies to fight a common cold (or what we thing is just a cold) and we start taking vitamin supplements or the traditional chicken soup, don’t we? Although those vitamins and the chicken soup may help but there has been some misinformation about the winter illnesses that this infographic is helping to clarify some.
Knowing what to plant, when to plant it and where it grows best can be a tricky business. But if you want a colourful garden for every season, all you really need to get dug in are the flowering times. So Primrose created this infographic as a handy visual guide for when flowers bloom. Simply pick the plants for each season that will suit the conditions best in your garden. Then you’ll be sure to have luscious planting whichever time of year!

June 8th is World Oceans Day
The concept for a “World Ocean Day” was first proposed in 1992 by the Government of Canada at the Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro. As a result of a United Nations General Assembly resolution passed in December 2008, World Oceans Day is now officially recognized by the UN as June 8th each year.
Since 2002, The Ocean Project has been the lead organization promoting and coordinating World Oceans Day events worldwide with aquariums, zoos, museums, conservation organizations, universities, schools, and businesses. We collaborate with all organizations, including the World Ocean Network, the World Association of Zoos and Aquariums and the Association of Zoos and Aquariums. Each year an increasing number of countries and organizations mark June 8th as an opportunity to celebrate our world ocean and our personal connection to the sea.
