With the weather getting warmer many are getting out and beginning to work on their gardens again. There are some tips to think about with your garden as you do your planting this season, such as keeping an eye on soil temperatures.

 

Andrew Holsinger, Horticulture Educator at the University of Illinois Extension Office said although many plant traditional gardens, another option you may want to consider is planting a raised bed garden.

 

 

One of the benefits a raised bed garden can have is warmer soil temperatures. Warmer temperatures can benefit many different types of plants, and the types of soil you can use in them can have other benefits such as reducing weeds.
