I have a notorious black thumb when it comes to gardens. The harder I try, the faster they die. Seriously, plants and I are not friends. So while I was reading this article in the WSJ (Home section, not the scary part), written by the enviable Marian McEvoy, I thought maybe if my tools of the trade improved, so would my gardening skills.
Or, I'll have the best planters on the block and a pile of dead ferns. Whose placing bets?
