The National Garden Bureau (NGB), a nonprofit organization that promotes gardening on behalf of the horticulture industry, has named three favorite plants as its featured crops in the 2013 “Year of the...” program.
The crops are: Annual: Gerberas Perennial: Wildflowers Vegetable/edible: Watermelons
NGB selects crops that are easy to grow and genetically diverse, with a lot of new varieties from which to choose.
To help promote the crops to consumers, the NGB has provided downloadable PDFs of fliers, handouts and signage. And click here to download photos.
The resources are free; NGB asks only that you credit the National Garden Bureau as the source.
