Good tools make gardening easier

Good tools make gardening easier

By Denise Stewart

While the rewards are great, gardening can be a demanding hobby if you don’t have the right tools. Digging holes, trimming branches, irrigating flower beds and distributing fertilizer all call for the help of well-maintained equipment.

Local gardeners have found the guidance they might need to make their everyday chores easier. Jodi Bay will be sharing her knowledge of selecting and maintaining the best tools to help make gardens flourish with less effort on the gardener’s part. She will be the featured speaker at the Scripps-Mesa Garden Club meeting  at the local library’s Community Room on April 23 at 6 p.m.

In the coming warmer months, the club will be holding outdoor meetings in local gardens. Observing the results of their neighbors efforts with trees, shrubs, flowers and vegetables is a relaxing and rewarding way to learn more about how to be successful working with local soil and climate conditions.

The local garden club members share their experiences with anyone who is interested in learning more on their website: scrippsmesagardenclub.com.
