The Scientist gardener post about "Hybrid Heirloom" tomatoes -- tomato varieties bred to combine the vigor and disease resistance of modern hybrid tomatoes with the flavor and quirkiness of heirlooms.
Also check out his post on a possible new short cut in apple breeding.

The New York Times does a story on Tony Avent of Plant Delights Nursery. Not an amazing article, but I'm always happy to see any gardening news in the NYT.

1 in 10 Britons have been injured while gardening. I'm willing to bet less than 1 in 10 Americans have gardened period.

The Galloping Gardener asks: "Where would we garden lovers be without the NGS?" To which I answer: America. We need a good national gardening scheme for this nation.
