It's 'thyme' to start your summer garden

Tips to help transform your outdoor space

HOUSTON – If you want to transform your outdoor space this season, the time to get started is now!  

According to Nicole Burke with Rooted Garden, there are six main components to every kitchen garden. 

  • Gravel at the base
  • Raised garden bed
  • Soil
  • Irrigation system
  • Trellises 
  • Plants/seeds

When it's time to plant, make sure you don't dig too deep of a hole!  

You want to dig a hole that's generally twice as wide [...] and the same depth as the neck of the plant.  Don't bury the neck," said Burke.
