Are you looking for something fun to do this Spring? Why not start a garden? The Tampa Bay area has beautiful weather and it is the perfect time to get outside before the summer heat creeps in.
Are you not sure where to start with your garden? Here are some easy steps to follow to get started.
If you are new to gardening, try starting with low maintenance plants. Some flowers that grow well in Florida are pentas, evolvulus, and the coreopsis; which is Florida’s state flower. Perhaps you are more interested in an edible garden. Some of the best vegetables to plant in April include beans, southern peas, lettuce, broccoli, okra, cucumbers, zucchini, and sweet potatoes. Just remember to keep the soil moist by watering it from time to time.
Make sure you have all of the supplies ready when you start your planting; soil, watering can, gloves, pruning shears, and a small shovel. Educate yourself on what you are planting to be sure it gets the correct amount of sun and water. Most of all, have fun! Gardening can be very rewarding and relaxing. Enjoy Florida’s spring weather.
