GARDENING - Have you heard of Vertical Gardening? Jimmy Rockett joined us to show us what that is. Jimmy says to use light and fluffy potting soil and when you fill the container, please do not pack the soil. Once full, wet the container to settle the soil and add more soil if needed. Jimmy says it is okay to have to knock some of the soil off of your plant before you poke the plant into the liner. Once you have all of your plants in all of the holes, add some type of moss to the top to cover the soil. This performs two purposes - the first is to keep the soil at the top from spilling over and the second is to provide a great look. Jimmy says you can fill these containers up with house plants, annuals, sediums, strawberry plants and much more. For more information, call Jimmy at (205) 981-1151, email him at firstname.lastname@example.org, or visit www.rockettsbugjuicegardens.com.
