Spring time is for gardening!
Excited about Spring! It's time to sharpen your tools. Collect your seeds and prepare your beds. Here are some tips to get you started
1. Start small – Gardening can be an investment. Start with container gardening if you want to give it a whirl. Tomatoes and peppers will provide color and produce to eat.
2. Herbs such as basil, sage, and rosemary can also be brought in during the winter if planted in a container. If kept in a sunny window and watered when they are dry, they should survive the winter. Trim and use in your cooking.
3. Soil – Use the right soil for the plant. Depending on the plant, you may need to check with the garden center or extension service to determine if you have the right soil to grow a particular plant or tree. Areas with clay soils do not drain well and your plants will have wet roots in rainy weather. Sandy soils drain easily, but in a drought, the plant will require more water unless the plant is drought resistant.
