Over the next few weeks, we'll be featuring gardening tips on the blog in preparation for the 2017 Home Garden Contest, brought to you by the Foundation, MOSAIC Community Land Trust and Building a Better Boyertown! The contest is open to beginner and experienced gardeners alike who reside in the Borough of Boyertown or Pottstown. Register by Friday, June 16 at 5 p.m. and you could win cash prizes for your green thumb!
Today's tip comes from Penn State Master Gardener Gretchen Lea:
"After May 15th our area is no longer likely to get frost, so feel free to plant annuals! If you're thinking of planting some peppers, you may want to wait a week or two before doing so as they like when the soil is toasty warm when planted in the garden."
Learn more about planting annuals here and here!
