Is there anything more gratifying than a beautiful personal garden? As someone who masters the art of gardening better than writing this blog post, “July means the start of summer holiday and a new rich colour palette, as dahlias, agapanthus and cosmos come into flower.” It’s that time of year when you can enjoy your free time in your garden, filling it with colorful flowers and plants. But, what if you’re a beginner, or don’t feel like a real pro?
As a first step to becoming a green thumb, we’ve selected 3 of Spreaker’s best gardening podcasts that will show you the way. You’ll learn how to do things like divide plants, plant a second round of vegetables, deadhead flowering plants, and more.
So, get to your garden, tune in to these podcasts, and sunbathe until you’ve learned what to do. You can start gardening with an unbeatable tan! Perfect plan! (But don’t forget to use sunscreen!)
