Community Gardens Coming to Open Spaces and Rooftops Under New Zoning Rules - Fairfax County Government NewsCenter
As the hunger for locally grown food increases, Fairfax County’s new zoning rules dramatically expand the locations where community gardens, farmers markets and home gardens are allowed.
Under the new regulations the Board of Supervisors adopted on June 25, community gardens may bloom in open space on the ground or rooftops on residential, commercial and industrial properties.
Now, fruits, vegetables, herbs, flowers and plants can be grown from the rooftops of office high-rises in Tysons to opens spaces at houses of worship to the common areas of suburban homeowners associations.
Community Gardens Allowed on Ground and Rooftops
Previously, the county’s zoning rules limited community gardens to planned residential communities like Burke or Reston. These gardens now are allowed without restriction in open spaces as long as they are under two acres, and they aren’t the principal use on a property. However, community gardens aren’t allowed on single-family home sites.
With one in three U.S. households growing their own food at home or in a community garden according to the National Gardening Association, the county made its zoning ch... Jul 5, 2019

12 annual flowers that thrive in full sunlight - The Daily Courier
If you have a sunny spot in the yard that looks perfect for a flower garden, make sure you choose plants that thrive in the hot sun without a lot of extra care.
This can be a bit tricky if you want to grow annual flowers in the mountain sun. Some plants love our sun, others faint at the thought. Monsoon humidity can bring an overwhelming mugginess to warm days, and even dry heat can be uncomfortable when the temperatures top 95 degrees F. People have air conditioning to escape oppressive summer weather, but our plants aren’t so lucky.
Perennials with deep tap roots and water-conserving leaves tolerate heat and sun better than annuals. Annual flowers never have a chance to develop an extensive root system because they exert most of their energy in producing blooms and buds, and more blooms and buds.
Choose wisely when planting annual flowers that will have to stand up to hot weather. With dry heat, a little afternoon shade and a functional layer of premium mulch helps sustain most plants and keeps away the need for constant watering.

'Of all the flowers that they had in their greenhouse, he shined the brightest': Remembering Neal Holland, local gardening guru - INFORUM
Sheyenne Gardens in 1988 on his farm in Harwood.
“It was a large nursery with stock that included huge trees and a lot of stuff that nobody else had,” Collins said. “He did a lot of it almost on his own, particularly in the early years, and running a nursery is a physical business. That was pretty impressive.” Collins fondly retold his favorite memory of Holland, when a plant Collins purchased from Sheyenne Gardens started to wilt and die. When Collins called Holland for advice, he immediately knew what had gone wrong -- Collins had not unwound the root ball of the plant before planting it, so it wasn’t getting all the nourishment it needed. “He said, ‘Oh just take a fork and poke the fork in there a little bit and that’ll move the roots around and it’ll come back and it’ll be perfectly fine,’” Collins said. “He said, ‘Oh I know it’ll work,’ and of course it worked.” “He really cared about the stuff he sold and the success of his customers,” Collins said. Former North Dakota State Senator Tim Flakoll was another of Holland’s customers at Sheyenne Gardens. Flakoll said he will remember Holland as a man as genuine and honest as the day is long who always had a gleam in his eye. “You couldn’t go away from Cheyenne gardens without having a better day because of it,” Flakoll said. “Some days you’d go into the place just to see if he was around. He really did have such a good outlook on life and he brightened people’s days not just with what he sold but how he was around people.” Flakoll affectionately reme...
