How Does Your Garden Grow?

As the days grow warmer and the trees and bushes begin to fill out, it's hard to think of a more promising season than Spring. Admittedly, I've always had a bit of a black thumb when it comes to nurturing my plants, but the excitement of watching tiny green knobs emerge from my own pots this year has inspired me to turn over a new leaf (pun intended). Whether you have a great expanse in which to plant or are working from a few little pots on a windowsill like I am, here are some of our favorite gardening essentials sure to get you in the mood to grow:
