Grow great plants


Courtesy of EasyBloom

We keep hearing that backyard weddings are the new ballroom, and I personally love the idea. So if you are thinking of planning an at-home party this spring, use Easy Bloom, a new tool that tests the soil in your yard to see what types of plants will grow best there.

Here's how it works: plant the tool in your yard for 24 hours. It will record data such as sun exposure, temperature, humidity and soil drainage. Then, plug it in to the USB port in your computer and you will be instantly matched to the perfect flower, plants, vegetables and more that will grow best at your house.

Use it to create a flower aisle in your yard, or personalize your menu by growing veggies and fruits that your caterer can incorporate into your wedding meal.
