It’s April, which means it’s time to get the party – I mean garden – started!
First thing’s first. A healthy garden requires healthy soil, and when’s the last time you checked your soil? Especially if you’re starting a fresh garden on a new plot, testing the soil is very important. Making sure your soil has a good PH balance, isn’t too sandy or heavy in clay, and can support a healthy garden is going to make all the difference in yield and health of your plants.
There is a debate that rages in gardening circles each year around this time. It’s a hot one, and it pits expert against expert on the topic of tilling. Yes, tilling is THAT hot! To till or not to till the garden soil each spring, that is the issue.
Wow, it was a long, cold winter. Finally, the sun is shining and we are enjoying some warm weather. Now that we have sunny days, we need to think about what plants to place in our gardens. Today we are going to focus on the sunny areas of our gardens. We’ll discuss shade-loving plants another time.
