Gardening Basics

Gardening is one of life’s basic pleasures. Learn how to successfully grow healthy plants, organically or conventionally, in daunting Idaho conditions. 

Knowing your soil, water and nutrient needs, how to divide and protect your plants, how to add organic material to the soil will help your plants thrive.

Gardening enriches life, adds beauty to our homes, brings a sense of satisfaction and accomplishment, provides a healthy form of leisure and relaxation, and/or puts the unequaled quality of home-grown produce on our table.
