Behnke’s Gardening News Archives

One of the questions we get week after week is about finding information about this or that plant. Many times I can get the answer; however, I am the first to admit I am not knowledgeable on woody plants and perennials. I know annuals and most houseplants but ask me about when is the best time to prune, and I send out SOS calls to those that know the answers. That said, many questions you have can be answered simply by going to our web site and putting a few keywords in the search section.

While doing that the other day I stumbled across all of our old Behnke GardenNews Newsletters that we used to mail out to you from May 1994 to September 2008. These were done a few times a year and are filled with tons of great information. They are all in PDF format that you can download if you want.

Of course, remember while reading, we are now closed and have moved on, but you will be able to find most of the plants at other local independent garden centers near you. Here is a link to the November 1997 Behnke GardenNews that contains some great information.

Although she quickly learned how to pull out a perennial and get taken off of weed pulling duty.
