High Spot/Black Spot Awards are Out!



The Renegade Gardener (multiple winner of the Garden Writers Association award for best on-line writing)
has released his much-anticipated awards for 2007 and they’re right here.  The list includes  landscape-and-the-law stories from Wisconsin and CHINA, the good and the bad about Fine Gardening Mag, the oxymoronic marketing term "non-toxic weed and grass killer," and the single most heinous nursery trend in America.


  1. Is it sad that I didn’t recognize the potted plant as a painted poinsetta? I thought it was going to be some marvelous new blue-foliage plant or an overexposed black-foliage plant picture.

    Those awards are great.

  2. I loved the tree part–I now feel completely confident about planting a B&B tree!–and was therefore surprised that he would still commend Fine Gardening after they botched that so badly.
