Now widely used by garden clubs, this pledge originally appeared in the Boy Scout Handbook
of 1948:

Conservation Pledge
I give my pledge as an American to save and faithfully defend from waste the natural resource of
my country:
its air, soils, and minerals; its forests, waters, and wildlife.

June Horticulture Note by Carol Stocker:
“Roses: Cut flowers just above an outward-facing leaflet and then cut stems under running water just before arranging. If you have not fertilized your roses do so now.”
