Gardening this Spring

April showers bring May flowers, so it's time to start planning your garden!

Consider the size of the area you have available for plants - will your garden be indoors or outdoors?
  • Choose organic seeds from a quality company.
  • Visit greenhouses or nurseries for plants.
  • Gather basic gardening tools - shovel, gardening gloves.
  • Experiment! Your garden may not flourish at first, but keep practicing.

In small pots in your kitchen, try planting a variety of fresh herbs such as basil, parsley, mint, oregano, lavender or rosemary. 
  • Can be used to flavor dishes or creating flavored water.   
  • Add a fresh scent to your kitchen. 

Increase your vegetable intake with your own homegrown vegetables.
  • Clear the area to get ready for planting.
  • Utilize planters on your deck for produce such as tomatoes or peppers. 
  • Check your local area for involvement in community garden plots. 
  • Research what grows best in your area based on weather, soil and sun exposure.

Both Indoors and Outdoors
Select a variety of plants indoors and outdoors.
  • Decorate your home.
  • Reduce air pollution.

Happy gardening - enjoy the fresh air!
