Have a pond or stream in your #garden? Testing your water is probably a good idea. Learn more: http://gardenmentors.com/garden-help/gardening-guidelines/water-testing/
Is your garden pond or stream safe? Even if it looks clear, nastiness may lurk in the depths. Lab water testing can help get the real dirt on your water.

Want to #growyourown #food ? Planting perennial food crops in your #garden is fruitful & may be much easier than sowing an annual #vegetable garden year after year. Learn more via +Garden Mentors inc:

Now is a great time to nip future pruning chores in the bud. Learn how easy it is to shape your #trees for the future without lifting a tool. Don't put it off, or you'll miss your window. Details via +Garden Mentors inc 
Spring pruning isn't always ideal. Tender new growth is easy to break with the slightest touch. Turn this into an advantage by rolling or pinching buds now!
