Create the Perfect 4th of July Planter!

As the summer season comes barreling in, so does the most Patriotic time of the year. The Fourth of July brings about many friendly gatherings and cookouts which give us plant lovers a great excuse to spruce up our planting arrangements. Creating a decorative Patio Pot for the summer is a great way to go. It can function as the table center piece and easily move to continue to add color to your patio or deck. Mixing in red, white and blue flowers will brighten up containers and wow your guests with a patriotic punch of color.

Low Maintenance, High Color – Fall Gardening Ideas

When I think of fall gardening, I think of a second spring. Recharged by the cool air, I’m fired up to do some planting! One of the reasons I really enjoy planting in the fall is that there is less thought to it. You just plant and go! At this time of year, plants are winding down. When you do plant, be sure to amend the soil with a good compost and mycorrhizae. Top-dress with some mulch, water the plants well, and Presto! Your plants are set! Since the plants require less watering at this time of year, you may not have to go back and water again. (It is still recommended to check the soil moisture daily, especially on warmer days.) Next spring, your plants will reemerge from dormancy, no hand-holding necessary.
