This month on Down The Garden Path, we're talking all about growing! We all like to grow plants in many different places besides in the ground. So for the month of March, we'll discuss what it takes to get growing indoors in different places. From starting seeds indoors to raised beds and containers, the possibilities are endless! In this week's episode, we're talking about growing healthy gardens.

Tune into this week's podcast to learn more about growing healthy gardens.

We answer some common questions:

  • What is a healthy garden?
  • What signs do I look for?
  • How do I make my garden healthy again?
  • How do I know how healthy my soil is?
  • What soil amendments do I add?
  • What is the right way to clean up the garden beds?
  • How do I attract beneficial insects to my garden?
