3 Simple Steps to Spring Gardening

Spring is here!!! The Sun, The Wind, and a bit of glorious RAIN!

Here are the 3 SIMPLE STEPS for SPRING GARDENING:



1. HEALTHY SOIL: In the garden, no substance can compensate for failure in the soil. Soil should be deep, lots of bio-mass, and hold moisture like a sponge. When I start in a pot, I often use Patio Plus. Be sure to do the “DENT TEST” to ensure your soil is alive!

2. HEALTHY STARTS: Seeds are fun but Starts are better for the beginning gardener. Buy LOCAL! For the Phoenix Area we recommend:
a. Vilardi Gardens at Summer Winds
b. Utopian Harvest.com (Scottsdale and Gilbert Locations)

3. HEALTHY ROUTINES: Avoid Binge-gardening! It’s all about routines and automation! especially with WATERING!
