CITY ISLAND - News 12 The Bronx visited a City Island gardener, who shared her tips for beautifying apartments and other small living spaces for the spring.

Barbara Burn Dolensek is a well-known gardener on City Island and a member of the City Island Garden Club. She recently published a book on the world of gardening.

For residents whose apartments have balconies, Dolensek suggests taking advantage of the space by decorating it with flowers. Those without balconies can still get in the mood for spring by growing potted plants on windowsills.

Dolensek also recommends joining a garden co-op or community garden in the Bronx for those who want more space to garden.
