Terrarium gardens are great for novice gardeners

As terrariums continue to grow in popularity they present growth opportunities in niche categories for retailers. The small glass container gardens are bringing a new set of customers to the garden center and piquing the interest of seasoned gardeners with the ability to keep and enjoy unique and rare plants, according to Green Profit magazine. Workshops that show customers how to use plants and tiny decorations to assemble the gardens in a wide variety of glassware will entice both adults and kids to build their own terrariums and help novice gardeners gain confidence. 


New computer tips

Setting up a new computer? Here are safety and protection tips: Create multiple partitions on the hard drive if possible. This will allow you to reinstall Windows if needed without losing files that are stored in a different partition. Back up everything important. Store important items on a second partition, a removable flash drive or to the cloud. Keep everything up to date. Keep your anti-virus software, operating system, and internet applications updated to the newest versions. However, be suspicious of pop-up that appear in browser windows, these are usually fake and malicious. Install security tools first. If your operating system does not come pre-installed with security software, install the security software before to install anything else. Don’t believe everything you see on the internet. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably isn’t true. Perform maintenance tasks regularly. Your computer will need both hardware and software maintenance, consult a computer technician if you’re not comfortable doing this yourself.
