Getting the Garden Ready for Spring
with Janet Macunovich

Even if your garden makes you happy just as it is, there are things you can do in early spring to make the whole season easier and the garden more lush. Shrubs, trees, groundcover beds and lawn benefit from your attention in the spring, and repay you with reduced needs in summer. It's also a wonderful time to rearrange or expand a perennial garden. Professional gardener and author Janet Macunovich will help you start off on that right foot toward a great season.
