The weather is warming up after a mild winter its almost as if our seasons are blending. With Summer just a few months away, its a good idea to get started on your gardening by sprucing up the landscape, plant a garden or both.
A great garden starts with good soil. You can contact a local gardening center and find out what type of soil is good for your projects. See the difference between Top Soil and Garden Soil.
Looking to enrich your soil even more? Starbucks has a Grounds for your Garden program where you can get a free bag of used coffee grounds just for asking. Don’t have a Starbucks near you? Ask your local coffee shop is they would provide the same.
Looking for seeds and plants? Check out your local library, public parks, local arboretums, botanical garden centers and gardening clubs for free seeds and plants this time of year.
