Living Green: Spring Gardening

No Comments

We’re getting a little bit of moisture in the area, but the winds are also picking up, so, you know what that means: Spring!

Treehugger has six steps to spring gardening:

  1. Fruit & Vegetable Garden is an excellence source of information to consult before getting started.
  2. Learn more about locally evolved, grown & distributed (LEG’D) plants; they’ll tolerate your soil types and weather, won’t bring in any new and nasty exotic insects and diseases and have a smaller carbon footprint.
  3. A business card garden is a cool example of growing green while scaling down to something smaller if you don’t have room for a garden.
  4. For a slightly larger container, these recycled planters are a good-looking, sturdy, and environmentally-friendly alternative.
  5. Add some green style to your garden with furniture and solar birdbaths and fountains.
  6. Check out last year’s tips for cultivating your green thumb with green practices. Happy gardening!
