I haven't killed my quarantine garden ... yet. Here's what I wish I'd known before I started.

I haven't killed my quarantine garden ... yet. Here's what I wish I'd known before I started.

I don't have a green thumb and had zero knowledge about how to garden prior to the pandemic. But I have always loved flowers.  Historically, my plants have survived for a month or so on my New York City fire escape. But while quarantining at my

parents' home in Connecticut, I found myself with extra time and a lot more space for a garden than 3 feet of metal slots above a two-story drop. 

With the help of a friend who's staying with us for the duration of lockdown, I decided that now was the time to revitalize a space in the backyard that my parents had once kept as a flower garden. When we began the project in mid-April, it wasn't exactly an Eden, though I was lucky that we had a head start since I had no idea what I was doing and my friend wasn't exactly an expert in floriculture, either. 

We haven't killed the garden ... yet. But there are a few things I wish we'd known before starting.
