Lessons of a New Canadian Gardener

Posted on May 3 by Kyle

Spring is in the air, which means it’s time to get that garden started. It’s worth noting that I live in an apartment with a deck, so there is no autumn bulb planting. If you have a ground garden, you’re a few months late to the garden party…

I grew up in a home with huge gardens (it is a coincidence that my mother’s last name is Green) but everything I learned about ground gardening does not translate to potted plants and indoor gardens. My potted herbs don’t last long enough to cook with, my flower baskets burn in the summer sun, and my tomatoes stay very tiny, and very green.
