Our gardening endeavors are in full swing, and Farmers' Almanac has the key to a verdant sanctuary.

Since we can all afford to add a little pop of color to our lives, we've rounded up easy gardening techniques that'll help make the season feel as good as the sunshine. From proper pruning tricks to uncovering the best plant nutrients, our how-to guide will bring out the horticulture enthusiast in everyone.

(It's available in both the U.S. and U.K.)
We can't forget about Le Creuset's new trinkets. In the U.K., the kitchenware brand just launched its nature-inspired Botanique collection, featuring goodies in fig, nectar, deep teal, and artichaut. In the U.S., kitchen enthusiasts are going crazy over the new Cool Mint color—essentially springtime in the form of a dutch oven.
