Gardening is one of our favorite Southern hobbies. We spend weekends with our hands in the dirt caring for our prized Peggy Martin roses and trimming our lawns until they're perfectly manicured. We have competitions for the neighborhood's best lawn and bring our vegetables to the county fair to win blue ribbons. Gardening is a Southern tradition, and we're always looking for ways to improve our lawns. If you're a gardening amateur looking to start a garden, you'll want to try out these tips from our resident expert, Grumpy Gardener Steve Bender. The first thing that you've got to decide is what kind of garden you'd like to have. Do you want to grow warm weather vegetables in the summer? Or, are you hoping for more evergreen plants? If you're a beginner, you may want to try container gardening – a simpler form of growing that takes much less work and maintenance. Keep watching for the Grumpy Gardener's best tips.
