Last summer, I gardened for the first time. I was elated to eat tomatoes and cucumbers that I actually grew… myself. I have yet to tackle a flower garden, and my yard could use some color/texture love these days. Being a novice, I was surprised to learn that gardening projects don't end with the summer. There are plenty of flowers and shrubs that love autumn.
Gardenieres is a website full of great instructional videos and tips specific to gardening in all regions of the country. No matter where you live, and what the conditions, you will find instructions on how to grow vibrant plants.
This video by Gardenier Gina, who lives in Chicago, Illinois, is super helpful for us since we live in Indiana and have abundant clay in our soil too. Gina shares how to use Miracle Gro Expand N Grow, which expands to three times and breaks up the chunks of clay so the roots can travel through the soil and take hold! It also softens up the soil, increasing water uptake. That is particularly helpful since the soil has been so hardened by the summer's drought.
I seriously need to check out the Miracle-Gro® Expand ‘n Gro. I had never heard of it, and think it would make a huge difference from what Gina described in the video.
