Gardening: Getting Ready for Spring

March 14, 2014

We had a taste of spring weather earlier this week and according to Shane Cultra, who helps run Country Arbors Nursery in Urbana, there were lots of anxious gardeners who were more than ready to get outside. During this time in spring, before the ground is completely thawed, is a great time to take care of the gardening chores that don’t involve plating – taking leaves, mulching raised beds and pruning fruit trees and rose bushes.

This hour on Focus Cultra talks with WILL’s Lisa Bralts about getting ready for spring in the garden. We’ll hear this hour about building and starting to grow flowers and food in raised beds if you’re thinking about it, and as always, we welcome your questions about your lawn and garden!
