Get Your Garden Soil Ready for Vegetables
Dearborn Market in Holmdel offers tips for summer gardening.
The chill of winter hasn't fully passed, but garden experts at Dearborn Market say it isn't too early to get your soil ready.
Vegetable gardens should be positioned in an area that gets 6 to 8 hours of sunlight daily, and Geri Van Wezel-Bolen of Dearborn says it's best to mix soil with organic compost.
Dearborn Market offers homemade compost in its gardening center. Customers can bring gallon jugs or buy them in the store to fill.
Stay tuned next week with Patch and Dearborn to find out what vegetables are best to plant from spring to summer.
Dearborn Market has been in Holmdel since 1925, serving the community with everything from local and fresh produce, bakery goods and gardening supplies and experts.
