Gardening doesn't have to be hard and can actually be easier than you think. Master Gardner's with Cape Coral Parks & Recreation and the University of Florida Yards and Neighborhoods Program, plan to teach you the tips and tricks to success. Like how to re-use trimmings and clippings, efficient use of water, proper mulching and more.
