Get Your Dream Garden With PCHtips Spring Gardening Tips!

Springtime is “the” time to open up your garden shed and get growing on your dream garden! I personally don’t have a lot of gardening experience, but over the years I’ve known the pleasure of growing my own vegetables. (There’s nothing like fresh-from-the-vine tomatoes for salads and BLTs!) Last year, I tackled a new gardening project: I dug up the old azalea bushes on the north side of my house and planted some lovely young shade-loving shrubs. This season, I plan to learn how to prepare the soil for a bumper crop of snap peas, among other projects!

Luckily, I have spring gardening help — PCHtips!

Imagine an internet library of household hints and guides for better living, all presented in quick, practical, and easy to understand “bites.” That’s PCHtips! Full of fun and authoritative articles, it offers would-be Do-It-Yourself-ers like me smart and affordable ways to turn your “to do” list into your “Ta Da!” list. And its Gardening page makes “going green” a breeze!

Suppose you want to get started on getting your dream garden and nurturing your lawn. Visit PCHtips, click on the Gardening link, and read Lawn Care in Early Spring. There you go — you’ve taken the first steps to enjoying a “carpet” of green all summer long!

Do you live up North where the growing season is short? Giving Your Seeds a Headstart Indoors provides spring gardening tips to sidestep the problem. Got limited growing space? “How To’s” such as Create a Potted Herb Garden and Make the Most of a Small Garden show you ways to maximize the space you have.

There are so many gardening ideas at PCHtips, you may be inspired to try a new gardening project. Wondering about rooftop gardens? How to Construct a Green Roof could answer your questions. You can even discover how to save money by learning to Make Your Own Fertilizer and Grow Your Own Shiitake Mushrooms. And that’s just for starters!

Whether you want to plant outdoors or indoors, everyone from beginners to seasoned gardeners can glean a bushel-full of spring gardening tips from the Gardening page at PCHtips! It’s like chatting with a friend over the backyard fence! And after you’re done, use the navigation bar at the top of the page to visit your favorite PCH websites.

So why not bookmark PCHTips and make it your “go-to” site for “how-to” information? Keep checking back often, because you never know when more articles will “sprout up!”

Your dream garden is only a few clicks away!

Hi Joyce! Is that you in the pic above? Love this article and ‘I DO’ need to spend time in PCHtips! Will do that tomorrow. Lots of gardening questions..
This line is great > “to do” list into your “Ta Da!” lol… my kinda thing. Yes, my husband and I planted our first organic garden this year. Let me see if I can add a link on here: Don’t know if this will work. It’s a FB link from my timeline:

Organic Vegetable Garden coming up!It’s in my blood to PLANT ~ SEED ~ WATER and watch GOD bring the growth!!! APRIL Update on our Garden!

oops .. guess not. Too bad you guys can’t friend request so you could see what we have done. I’ll just copy-clip one of my NOTES:

God, today I want to thank you for all the blessings that you bestow upon us! Just the sweet thing of looking at radishes, lettuce and spinach popping through the ground is such joy… and it is all designed by YOU! Plant a radish seed ~ get radishes: plant a spinach seed ~ get spinach: plant a lettuce seed ~ get lettuce!!! God this joy makes me smile and laugh… I can hardly wait to see the rest of the garden popping through. We will enjoy the fruit of our labor as it multiplies. {Till the ground ~ plant ~ water ~ tend} I think my daddy would be proud of me…. since I am a ‘farm girl.’
Looking forward to eating the sweet organic cantaloupe and cucumbers ~ now they have popped through the ground!

Thank you for the land and home You have blessed Rod and I with and the desire to be good stewards of it and all that you give us..

Surely, You are our Good Shepard and we shall NOT want…

I used to have aloe vera plants at my house which was way back in the good old days when the aloe vera plants gets rid of people’s burns and poison ivy when I saw the aloe vera plants at a museum in Washington,D.C. on a field trip which was also way back in the good old days when I already close my Yahoo Mail account because I’m not at my Yahoo Mail account anymore at all because my parents said so.

the quote of the day:”EACH PERSON’S TASK IN LIFE IS TO BECOME AN INCREASINGLY BETTER PERSON”is true by:l.tolsoy…..it matters a whole lot to many who care to seek for a goal in life,but are all out of hope cause of someone elses spiteful being to hold them down or away from life itself.i believe that at least trying a prodject or trying out for a way to support one self is alot like gardening,you never know what you dig up or plant when you see the seed you are trying to grow conjer alot of weeds you try to seprate from a growing seed to bloom into a beautiful flower,my seed is more to me than that i planted into this game it is life itself.the sunshine that is the nurishment is hope but it seems to shine more on a failing crop and the bad fruits are spoiling the fun of the growth of the garden of life that many want to plant for their family.the pchtips give good hope to inspire but what about the delivery of the fresh blooms to brighten the garden of life us? will pch really deliver the rain of prizes promised to nurish our growing crops and bring sunshine to our shady sides of life over here soon?

Hi Joyce! My name’s Mandy…It’s very nice to meet you! I did not know you could get spring gardening tips from pchtips! Go figure! :) Thank you for letting everyone know! I to am a beginner and do not know much about planting! Thee odd thing is that I love nature! Animals, plants, flowers, hikes, mountains (I’ve climb one before)anything to do with it. I have a 4 1/2 yr old who is as well… Unfortunately I do live up North where the weather seems to get more and more unpredictable each day! The space, is also very limited and it kind of discouraged me from planting outside. After reading this changed my mind alot! Im sure it’s hardwork but im all for it! I did consider buying my own pots and planting inside but again I worry about the lack of sunlight and the proper air, over watering…Ugh alot of things. Hopefully pchtips could help me!… I try, to do my part by doing my own green projects! For example: I do not drive:)(BUS CARPOOL) I recycle plastic, paper, and metal,glass etc.. I reuses water bottles and other things that are reusable.I brang my own totes bags to the market. I save lots of electricity. Anything I can do I do so now you see why I want to take one step further and plant trees or just some type of life to replace what’s being taken! It’s enjoyable and I want to do my part and trying to save the world! :) Going to the website now! Thank you again!

PCH, Hi! I haven’t even started on a garden this year! I must plant some tomatoes though! They will grow anywhere, so I shouldn’t have a problem with them. We usually have green peppers and green beans too. I need to get started thanks for the motivation!
