Spring Gardening Tips from the Big City Gardener

Kick start your spring with these gardening tips from Timothy Hammond, known as the Big City Gardener.

Here’s an excerpt:

Hammond says he wants gardeners to find their why. Why do they want to garden? For food? Fun? A way to relax or connect with nature? He advises new gardeners not to get caught up in what other gardeners can do, especially when looking inspiration on Instagram. Instead, start small.

“Don’t try to plant your entire garden,” he says. “Don’t wake up one day like, ‘Man, I’m going to turn this whole backyard into a garden.’ Just start with one bed, and then allow it to grow with you, as your love for gardening grows.”
