Spring Planting! Gardeners across the country are eagerly anticipating the coming of balmy days and moist soil. The American Horticultural Society and Corona Tools are discussing planting tools on #Plantchat this week. By selecting the right tools for the job, gardeners save physical effort, reduce wear and tear on bodies and hands, achieve better leverage, and also save both time and money. Learn how Corona tools are designed for strength and comfort, and how to care for them with "the voice" of Corona social media, Chris Sabbarese. Contribute your ideas and experience with your favorite tools for planting.
