Food Gardening Magazine Publishes Special Garden Tools Issue

Food Gardening Network, publisher of Food Gardening Magazine, has released their April 2022 issue, highlighting different types of pruning shears, 10 DIY garden tools, plus five fruits and vegetables to plant this month.

Featuring four videos and articles, the April issue of Food Gardening Magazine helps readers determine which type of pruning shears are right for them, shares 10 do-it-yourself garden tools, and reviews which plants are ideal for planting this month.

Senior Editor and Producer Amanda MacArthur says, “As a new gardener, I remember staring blankly at the rows of hanging garden shears and figuring they must all be pretty much the same.”

In Choosing Between Types of Pruning Shears, readers in similar situations get an introduction to three types of general-purpose and task-specific gardening shears as well as a review of several models.

In 10 Easy DIY Garden Tools You Can Make, MacArthur explores some unique ideas to make gardening easier with 10 tools and accessories readers can make from regular household items.

This April issue of Food Gardening Magazine also offers readers helpful gardening advice in The 5 Best Things to Plant in April. While there is a lot that readers can plant this month, these five need to establish themselves before the summer heat.

Plus, readers will find a Thai-inspired recipe with the new “how-to” video for Red Curry Coconut Zucchini Noodles. This dish highlights garden-fresh zucchini, butternut squash, and the sweet flavors of lime and coconut milk to balance the spiciness of red curry.

The April issue of Food Gardening Magazine also includes in-depth articles about rhubarb, strawberries, and summer squash. These articles explore Food Gardening Network’s latest collections while providing valuable information on their own. Subscribers get instant access to the premium collections themselves, too.

In Dividing Rhubarb: Splitting, Transplanting, and Methods for Moving, readers can explore the options for dealing with a rhubarb plant that’s growing too large.

In Everbearing Strawberry Plants vs. June-Bearing Strawberries, subscribers can learn the differences between the two types of strawberries and discover five varieties of each, including a unique white strawberry with an unusually tropical flavor profile.

10 Summer Squash Companion Plants You Want in Your Garden shares the flowers and vegetables that will help squash and zucchini thrive by adding nutrients to the soil, attracting pollinators, or protecting them from harmful pests.

The April issue of Food Gardening Magazine offers readers four feature articles, four accompanying videos, and three Collection Close-Ups spotlighting rhubarb, strawberries, and summer squash. These collections offer comprehensive, in-depth information about a single fruit, herb, or vegetable, from starting seeds to dealing with pests and diseases and from nutrition facts to delicious recipes.
