April, among other things, happens to be National Garden Month. And what an ideal time--it's spring, and it's the right time to get your planting done for the months ahead of garden goodness. But this isn't just about people with yards to dig up, or with seasoned green thumbs. The great thing about gardening is that you don't have to be a pro to give it a go, or even do the gardening where you live! In fact, you can celebrate National Garden Month, we say, without even setting foot in a garden. Here are 7 things you can do.

1. Start Gardening
Never gardened before? Not a problem. Have some space in your yard? Great. If not, have a balcony, windowsill, patio, deck, wall, or an outdoor spot you've got the okay to use? Great. Now: Start a garden.
