Gardening in Gardiner

Winters in Maine are long, but doesn’t this winter seem as if it will never end?  One hopeful sign is that the sunlight appears to be warmer and the days, just a bit longer.  Is anyone dreaming of spring?
Maybe the Gardiner Public library can help you with your dreams.  We have a great collection of gardening books and some even have instructions about indoor gardening, a great way to get a jump start on your outside living.
A classic title is The Edible Garden by Peggy Hardigree.  Why not set up an indoor herb garden so that your meals may have just a bit more flavor over these winter months.  The Vegetable Gardener’s Container Bible by Edward C. Smith encourages folks to garden smartly; no need to wait until spring to begin some seeds in containers.  All you need is a sunny window!
The Gardiner Public Library has these and many other titles available for you to begin your garden dreams.  Come for a visit and begin planning for warmer weather…it really should be right around the corner!
The Gardiner Public Library is located at 152 Water Street, Gardiner, Maine.  We serve the towns of Gardiner, Litchfield, Pittston, Randolph and West Gardiner.
