Garden Poem of the Day

Garden Blessing For Children
By Ashleen O'Gaea

The Lady of Life and the Lord of Seeds
Shall give my garden what it needs.
In gentle Earth and breath of Wind
I will plant it to begin;
They will bring the Rain and Sun
And I will harvest when it's done.

Want to know how to repot your basil seedlings? Go ahead and follow these simple steps! 😊 . Thanks @rootedgarden for sharing your gardening tips! 🌱😄❤️ . 1. Pick a container that’s about 6 inches wide and deep and be sure there are drainage holes . 2. Fill the container with a blend of coarse sand, compost and top soil . 3. Water your little plant very well before transplanting . 4. Separate the little plants VERY CAREFULLY (they’re fragile little things!) . 5. Make deep planting holes for each (I really could’ve given each of these plants its own separate pot) . 6. Then if appropriate, trim the top of the plant so that it can put its energy into settling its roots (rather than supporting its tall leaves) . 7. Water well and place in filtered light for a few days as the little plants adjust . . . If you have some gardening tips to share, be sure to leave a comment below! 🌱💜 . . . 🔸Garden Quote of the Day🔸 .
