Profile AmericaProfile America — Profile America — Wednesday, January 11th. At this time of year, a lot of sales material that comes in the mail is aimed at those who are tired of winter — ads for Caribbean cruises, sporty convertibles and mail order catalogs filled with flowers and plants for spring. For an avid gardener, there’s nothing better on a wintry day than to curl up with some colorful catalogs and dream about next spring’s garden. That’s why this is Mail Order Gardening Month, a time to plan which flowers and shrubs should go in which garden bed. More than two-thirds of American households enjoy some sort of gardening activity. About three-out-of-10 keep indoor houseplants or raise flowers, while nearly one-out-of-five plant flower bulbs or garden in containers. You can find these and more facts about America from the U.S. Census Bureau online at <www.census.gov>.
