Springtime is here, and the garden is calling. Whether you're looking to plant a few flowers by the front door or grow enough food to feed the entire family, we've got plenty of tips and advice to get you started.

If you only ever think about what needs to be done outdoors or in the garden when you see the garden (which is probably when you're rushing to or from somewhere else), Fay Wolf has some helpful advice for you.

If you're planting outside, chances are you'll want to start your seeds in another container before putting them in the ground. You could spend a lot of money on tiny pots from the garden store, or... use a coconut!

And finally, for bigger gardens it can be really helpful to have raised planter boxes. They can help you keep weeds in check, and also control the amount of water your plants are getting and what kind of soil they're in. Making planter boxes can be super easy — gardening expert Ben Gould shows you how.

Thanks for watching, and happy gardening!
