Tomatoes are some of the easiest (and most satisfying!) edibles you can grow in your garden. Here, gardening guru Ben Gould shows us how to turn thin, lanky tomato plants from the nursery into big beefy tomato trees.
Maybe you prefer to grow your plants from seeds. Did you know that coconuts are the perfect container for starting seeds? Once your new plants sprout, you can transfer the coconut directly into the ground.
And finally, Ben shares a quick and easy tip on how to add compost to your garden.
• The Star: Ben Gould happened upon his passion for gardening when trying to find the most inexpensive way to travel the world through the WWOOF program in Belize and India. It has since transformed his life in beautiful and unexpected ways. He now educates children on gardening at several elementary schools in Los Angeles, has recently started his own edible garden installation business and continues to seek knowledge and learn life lessons through all of the gifts that the garden offers. He is also one of my favorite Instagrammers around.
