Friday File

Early Spring Gardening

SnowDropsAs the snow clears and the weather becomes Spring like, it’s time to head out into the garden. But what to do first? You can start indoors and move outside by taking cuttings of any houseplants that have started producing new growth. Then you can plant them either in a new plant pot or put them outside and see how well they do.

You can find a new course about gardening from your local botanical garden, or learn more about gardening from visiting plant nurseries.

Meanwhile, for this Friday File, here are a few quotations about gardening, courtesy of The Quote Garden and
