The experts at B.B. Barns say now is a good time to plant almost all types of herbs, and some vegetables.
If you are planting outdoors, General Manager Jon Merrill said breaking up the roots of the trees and shrubs prior to planting will help their growth.
Annual expert at B.B. Barns Letha Hinman said watering is key, especially for newly planted shrubs.
"Don't just put a gallon on top. That's not going to cut it," she says. "Water is very thoroughly, let it dry, then in a few more days in the hot summer, water it again. But that first year is critical."
Container gardens with colorful flowers, succulents, or edibles, are a simple way to get creative.
