When starting your spring garden take a little time researching your plant and product knowledge (fertilizers, tools and long term maintenance). Having a plan will save you a lot of time as well as money! For starters:
Sketch out your garden layout…..it is helpful to have specific measurements so you know how many plants you need per square foot, how many bags of mulch and compost you need. There is no such thing as a “brown thumb” if you know basic garden knowledge. For example: when choosing a fertilizer go organic! I always practice the organic method. Why? Because using organic fertilizers actually feeds the microbial activity, insects and earthworms. Synthetic fertilizers add salts to the soil profile and are usually abrasive and can burn roots and foliage. Read your labels and chose the right products for you and your home!
