National Gardening Day – April 14, 2021
https://www.quartoknows.com/Cool-Springs-Press founded national Gardening Day in 2018 to celebrate the hobby of gardening and to encourage gardeners to share their expert knowledge.
National Gardening Day on April 14 encourages gardeners and would-be gardeners to pick up a shovel and some seeds and kick-off a beautiful year of homegrown bounty.
The observance is a call to action to get out and grow flower or vegetable gardens. No matter how you garden, plant in the ground, in containers, in straw bales or a square foot gardening box. Just garden!
