Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Glad tidings he brings to fans of this flower gladiolas
Maine Sunday Telegram - 1/29/2012.
By Tom Atwell – Gladioli scream summer. They show up in the garden just as the heat begins to kick in, and when you cut them and bring them inside, they last for a week or more. You just remove the spent blossoms at the bottom of the stock and let the buds closer to the top open up.

When it comes to agriculture and climate change, I'd like to see our nation take the same approach.
