“The Plant Man,” the self-syndicated gardening column by Steve Jones, marks its seventh year of continuous publication next month.
The weekly column, which runs free in 85 newspapers in America, focuses on trees, shrubs and groundcover that even green-thumb-challenged readers can handle.
“Attractive landscaping doesn’t have to expensive or difficult to maintain,” Jones says. “And in the current economic climate, some neat, attractive planting in the front yard adds curb appeal and dramatically enhances the perceived value when you’re ready to sell.”
Columnist Jones also hosts a non-profit Web site that includes archived columns and helpful links.
‘The column is available free of charge to editors and publishers. For more information, e-mail Jones at firstname.lastname@example.org.
