This month on Down the Garden Path, we’re exploring "Gardening Beyond the Basics." In this episode, we conclude our month-long discussion on how to take your gardening to the next level with a look at what you should be doing after your garden is planted.

Tune into this week's podcast as we discuss what you should be doing this month.

  • Now is the time to bring your houseplants outside and slowly integrate them into your outdoor landscape (hint: very slowly).
  • Joanne and Matthew remind listeners to fertilize indoor flowering plants with high middle-number fertilizer.
  • The importance of watering your vegetable gardens often and deeply.
  • Temperatures are ideal to apply grass seed to your lawn.
