Spring has officially sprung, and that means it’s time to get busy in your garden. If you haven’t already planted your harvest, the first day of spring (March 20, 2015) is the perfect day to start. First things first, you’re going to need the right tools to get your green thumb going…
[title text=”Dig It”]
It’s the dirt. You’re gonna need to dig it up and toss it around before you put anything in the ground. Hence, a shovel. Or rather, shovels. This collection of “Stalwart Garden Tools” has everything a novice gardener needs: spade, trowel, cultivator and pruner. (Technically, this seems to be a set for students, but we can’t see why actual gardeners wouldn’t use it.) Get it at Walmart and receive 1% Cashback for free members and 7% for V.I.P. Members!
[title text=”Water It”]
Water your plants in style with this four-pack of adorable brightly colored “Polka Dot Galvanized Steel” watering buckets in green, red, blue, and yellow. Grab it from Ace Hardware for up to 9.2% Cashback.
[title text=”Grow It”]
Mary, Mary quite contrary, how does your garden grow? Well, with a 15-pack starter kit of veggie seeds, of course. Grow everything from carrots and cucumbers to peppers and tomatoes with this nifty little package of “Premium Veggie Favorites Garden Seeds.” Create your very own farmers market! So go ahead Farmer Ted, and get it at Walmart. Shop through DubLi.com and receive 1% Cashback for free members and 7% for V.I.P.’s!
[title text=”Prune It”]
Now that you’ve succeeded in not killing everything in sight (congratulations!), it’s time to tame the wild garden that you’ve managed to grow. You’ll need this object — very dangerous — called “shears”! Pick up either a handheld pruner for up-close-and-personal jobs, like this “Bypass Pruner,” or something called a “Bypass Lopper,” which gives you a longer reach. Pick up both from The Home Depot and enjoy 1.9% Cashback for free members and 7.9% for V.I.P.’s!
[title text=”Plant It”]
This sweet “White Swan Planter” is way cuter than your average faux-clay pot. Put something small in it, like basil or oregano, or maybe something with flowers to really push your garden into cute overload territory. Grab it from Ace Hardware with up to 9.2% Cashback.
