Planting Green

All this month we will be discussing ways to “go green”, “grow green”, & even “save green”!

Where else to ask about gardening than Better Homes and Gardens! If you’re thinking about adding gardening to your plan for a “greener” lifestyle, BHG has some tips for you:

1 – Have an idea. What do you want to plant? An herb garden? A vegetable garden? Flowers? They suggest starting small rather than fail big…

2 – Pick a place. Almost all veggies & most flowers need 6 hours of full sun each day.

3 – Clear the ground. Obviously you need a clear/clean space to plant.

4 – Improve the soil. Add compost & other nutrients to the soil prior to planting.

5 – Dig or Don’t. The soil should be wet enough to form a ball but dry enough to fall apart.

6  – Pick your plants. Pick plants that you like and can handle your area’s climate.
