Spring 2015 Is Coming

Spring 2015 seed startingSpring 2015 is coming it may not feel like it yet but it is on it’s way and very shortly. If you are an avid gardener I am sure you are aware of this, but many gardeners who are just starting out and would like to grow their own flowers and vegetables from seed will need to start preparing soon.

With Valentines Day just about 3 weeks away I have already seen the lawnmowers creeping into the garden section of some of the home centers stores in our area. I would not be surprised to see some seed racks going up next week.

A lot of people are scratching their heads and wondering why so soon, but people who have been gardening for a while and those just starting to think about a garden inevitably will slow down and linger even for a few moments to take a quick look and think about this years garden.

Gardening Experts

Gardening ExpertsWhat does it take to become one of the Gardening Experts? For many of us the words Gardening Experts brings to mind a group of wised individuals that can answer any question on gardening with out even the blink of the eye. I am a gardening a gardening expert but I can assure you that I very rarely answer any question with out thinking about it first.

One thing I can tell you absolutely is that to answer a question you need to know what the question is. As confusing as this might sound it is one of the things that sets gardening experts apart from just gardeners. For example someone says every time I plant a flower in my container on the patio it  starts to turn yellow and wilt in a week or two why? Right away I can give you 3 answers for the same question while any of them maybe right they all maybe wrong the soil is too wet, the soil is too dry, the soil is contaminated. Continue reading

Where Your Garden Seeds Come From

That story starts with a company called  Seminis which was founded back in 1994  and it was formed by acquiring a group of established companies Asgrow Seed Company,and Bruinsma and Genecorp brands. Asgrow Seeds is Seminis Oldest Brand Established Back In 1865. Continue reading

ZInnias

F_Zinnia_GiantDoubleMix Zinnias I would have to describe it as a plant that would provide vivid color flowers from the middle of summer until frost, that was ridiculously easy to grow from seed and that would attract not only butterflies but birds as well to the garden.

Zinnias are always a show stopper and there are colors of every hue so they can fit in well with any perennials or annuals in your garden and will even give a pop of color to the herb garden or foliage. Not matter where you plant the will really catch your eye. Continue reading
