Residents get helpful gardening tips

JONEBORO, AR (KAIT) - Some residents in Region 8 got some helpful tips on gardening Wednesday at the Crowley's Ridge Nature Center.

The president of the Arkansas Federation of Garden Clubs Inc., Phyllis Byrum spoke to audience members about color, shape, and some common mistakes some people make.

"Our friends and neighbors and our members are really interested in having a nice yard." said Sharon Holman, President of the Transplant Garden Club, "No matter how much money we have to put into our yards, we like to have a nice area around us."

Byrum says a common mistake people make is with pruning. You're supposed to cut down into the plant so that it has a natural shape, not square or round.
