Spring has certainly sprung around Raleigh, NC. In fact, it’s sprung so much that everything outside is covered in a beautiful yellow coat of pollen. I’m certain that those with allergies are doing their best to keep their windows closed and stay inside, but I personally cannot spend enough time in my new garden. Because I have the opposite of a green thumb, whatever color thumb that may be, and I am certain to be the cause of any nightmares my houseplants may have (if that’s possible), I’ve decided that it would be best to get some gardening advice from my fellow Lulus. In case you are looking forward to playing in the dirt, too, I thought I’d share some of the great Gardening Books I’ve found on Lulu!
