- You can come in your pajamas because it’s a virtual party and
- I’m giving one lucky party guest a $25 Koetsiers Greenhouse gift card.
But first, let me share a little background on my yard, where [in the video] I’ll show you how to pot up some pretty planters and use annuals in the yard to brighten things up.
Almost four years ago, my family and I moved into our current home. We moved in the dead of winter, so I couldn’t take a single one of my beloved plants with us. (Sigh.) To add insult to injury, our new house had minimal landscaping.
Over the last few years we did a lot of work on the yard – and to save money, we did most of it ourselves. Our accomplishments include my husband driving a bulldozer, taking out 43 trees, and building a 50 foot long rock wall in the backyard. But it was worth the wait and the work. Now, we’ve finally got the basic framework of our yard in place.
what a difference!
We’re all at different stages in our gardening lives. I grew up with parents in the nursery business and my kids are old enough to be outside with me for extended periods of time, so I can stay out and dig in the garden. But some of our readers are nursing babies right now, or have no idea where to start when it comes to plants. It’s all okay. Start small. Gardens, like kids, are works-in-progress. They grow and change, but they are never done.
With that, I invite you to click the play button below and enter my garden party. I’ll share some simple tips on potting up a pretty planter and a few fool-proof tips on how to plant annuals. Plus, I’ll let you know how you could win a $25 gift certificate to Koetsiers greenhouse.
The winner of the $25 gift certificate will be announced on the next GRKids Grows on May 29.
