It’s a new year and with it comes the oh-so-familiar new year’s resolutions.  And while I rarely keep the ones I make (lose weight, exercise more, blah blah blah) this is a resolution that’s long overdue and one that I’m thrilled to undertake: getting rid of my unused front lawn.

I’ll admit it – I’ve never given much thought to caladiums, perhaps subconsciously dismissing them as an uninspired, old-fashioned stalwart. But having trialled several dozen this year (thanks to the good folks at Classic Caladiums) I can proudly say I was dead wrong – there’s nothing uninspired with these plants.  I’m officially hooked! Similar to coleus […]
