Grow a Green Thumb
Author: Brad Gray
Tree Day is all about planting but not everyone has a natural green thumb. So we’ve put together a few How To videos starring Planet Ark ambassadors Ranger Stacey and Costa Georgiadis to help you get ready for the big day.
How to Plant
Do you know how to get a seedling out of its pot, how deep to dig the hole or how often to water the seedling? Check out Ranger Stacey’s video and you’ll learn all you need to know.
The Beauty of Compost
As Costa says, compost is the essential ingredient in organic growing and it’s free. Check one of these two videos to get an idea of how to use a compost or worm farm to make your garden bloom.
