Managers & Landlords
Springtime is the perfect time to encourage your readers
to dust off
their green thumbs. After all, beautiful flowers and plants are an easy
was to make anyone's home more attractive. In most parts of the country,
planting can start in April. Gardeners in colder regions may need to wait
until May, or until the last hard frost of the season.
Offering prizes for the winners of a “Beautiful Balcony” contest
may help get any reluctant gardeners off to an early start. Have your
readers submit photographs or go visit their properties if your newsletter
services a small community. But even
without that incentive, an article in your newsletter focusing on gardening can be useful to those who may never have tried
Consider including in your newsletter a listing of plants that fare
well in your area, locations of local nurseries close to your property,
and the phone number of your local County Extension Agency. You may find
that April showers are bringing bunches of May flowers.
