Quarantine Tips: Start a Garden

OAK HILL, WV (WOAY) – If you’re looking for ways to pass the time at home, gardening might be a good way to go.

Sue Morris at Morris Greenhouses says that it’s the perfect time to start a garden, whether you opt to grow flowers or vegetables. The hobby is not only rewarding, but can be a stress reliever as well.

“When you can get out and dig in the soil and plant some seeds, plant some flowers, it’s just good for the soul,” said Morris. “I think we were gardeners before we were anything else.”

Morris also says that having kids help with a vegetable garden may encourage healthy eating habits.
