Top Three Tips for Preparing Your Garden

It’s time to start thinking about your spring garden! Instructor Glenn Olsen will offer in-depth gardening techniques in his upcoming course, “The Incredible Edible Garden.” Mr. Olsen, who has completed the Master Gardener Program and is past president of the Native Plant Society of Texas, shares his top three tips on preparing your garden below:

1. Build or buy a quality soil that is rich in organic matter and that drains water well.

2. Properly select varieties of plants that grow well in our area and for the proper season.

3. Treat your plants with TLC, but don’t mother them to death by over watering, over fertilizing and excessive use of insecticides.

Mr. Olsen’s course, offered either daytime or evening, begins on February 27. Happy gardening!
