Shake off those winter blues. Spring has sprung, Milwaukee!
The ice has melted, and the buds are beginning to blossom. And with warmer weather comes gardening season.
One of the oldest hobbies around, gardening is a great way to become one with nature, as well as to teach kids of any age about the outdoors. It's an activity that can be enjoyed by the whole family or by yourself.
We've assembled our 2001 Spring Gardening Guide to get your green thumb back in shape. Whether it's a backyard garden you're looking to cultivate, or whether you'd prefer to visit Milwaukee's beautiful Boerner Botanical Gardens, we have all your buds covered.
