Victoria Day weekend is the unofficial start to summer. There are so many great deals all around town to help you with all your gardening needs. Pull out those garden gloves and get a little dirty planting a garden. I am lucky enough to have all these stores within walking distance from my home. There is nothing more rewarding than a walk around the neighbourhood enjoying the beauty of nature I see in the gardens.
While I love to spend time outside in the garden, I don;t have a large space but do make the most out of the space I do have.

Gardening Tips for beginners
- replant using produce (onions, lettuce and more)
- use containers (bring inside for winter and continue growing)
- keep plants watered
- find companion plants that work well together
- remove dead leaves and flowers
- plant herbs that you can use all summer long as they grow
Make the most out of the space you have and sit back, relax and watch your garden grow. If you have kids, involve them in the task with their own special tools and enjoy the time together bonding.
Does your plan for this Victoria Day weekend include flipping the garden?
