Welcome to 2017! It’s a new year and a great opportunity to make some resolutions that will benefit your garden and family.
Here are 5 gardening resolutions that will benefit you and your garden in 2017.
- Use more organic products in your garden and home. Organic products are a better alternative for your family, pets and the environment. We have a huge selection of organic lawn, flower, vegetable and houseplant fertilizers and controls. For tips on how to garden organically, click here.
- Grow vegetables! Growing your own vegetables literally allows you to shop your garden for the food you need. Whether you create a large garden or try just one tomato plant in a planter, growing vegetables is a rewarding experience. Learn how to grow tomatoes by clicking here.
- Involve your children! Teaching children where food comes from and how flowers and other plants grow is not only educational but a great way to spend quality time as a family.
- Feed the Birds! Birds are very important to the garden. They eat insects, help to pollinate plants and disperse seeds throughout your garden. Start with a simple feeder or a bird house to welcome local birds into your yard. Learn how to design a garden that attracts birds here.
- Add houseplants to your home. Houseplants are not only a beautiful addition to your home; they also clean the air you breathe. Add one plant per 100 square feet of space for maximum benefits. For more information, click here.
