It was a long cold winter but it’s finally time to start thinking about my garden! Each year is like a clean slate in my garden and I can’t wait to start planning for this summer. My neighbour and I have decided to do a shared vegetable garden that we can each contribute to and help maintain – and enjoy the results!
We are so lucky in Niagara to be surrounded with farmland, vineyards, orchards and greenhouses. There are some amazing garden centres that can help make your garden spectacular this year.
