Weekly Gardening Tip with Jay Harper of Harper's Nurseries
  • Do you need to change your landscape to accommodate changes in your life? Maybe you need to consider changing that garden to a raised bed planter or using a better tool to make the job easier.  Jay recommends also using a slow release fertilizer, like Ferti-lome Start and Grow, it lasts longer and you don't you have to mix it with water. Ferti-lome Start and Grow can be found at your local nurseries in Phoenix, Tucson and Northern Arizona.
