If you’ve never grown transplants for a garden, this could be the year to do it. You can start with a flower or vegetable that’s easy to raise from seed.
While spring is the ideal time to begin digging and growing a traditional vegetable or flower garden, plenty of planning and other tasks can be done at any time of the year.

Spring is in the air. Even houseplants indoors feel the changing season. So it's a good time for repotting and pruning.
If you brought pots and urns indoors during the winter, you can take them outside once temperatures are consistently above 45 degrees. Place the plants and flowers in appropriate areas around your patio or deck — some plants need shade, while others require direct sunlight. If you grew plants indoors during winter with a hydroponic garden, make sure you have enough pots or urns if you’d like to replant them outdoors.
Pruning the stems of a houseplant is just the first step. After a few years, depending on how fast a plant grows, roots will fill a pot until they have no room left to grow. Roots attempting to escape out the drainage hole of a pot is one indication of overcrowding.
The most obvious reason to prune a houseplant's stems is to keep the plant manageable. For example, growing in the ground in a tropical climate, branches of weeping fig, a familiar houseplant, will reach skyward and spread as high and wide as a sugar maple's. Indoors, at the very least, your ceilings limit the desired height of a houseplant. For looks, you might want to keep the plant smaller, perhaps much, much smaller.
