Hottest Gardening Trend in 2020!

 GROW YOUR OWN FOOD!!!
The hottest gardening trend this season is growing your own food. Fruit trees and shrubs that are container grown can be planted throughout the season. They do need to be monitored for water though. So only plant in the summer months if someone is available to check on them daily. They may only need water weekly, biweekly or daily depending on the weather conditions. Once the soil is completely dry to the touch they need watering. Over watering can be even more harmful than not enough water. If the soil is still damp to the touch, they do not need to be watered.
