These days it's hard to find any real gardening shows on TV so we are left on our own to figure things out. But AHA! There is always the internet! A plethora of information! And my 2nd resource when I can't find Paul! But there is nothing like Paul James and his "Gardening by the Yard" to keep me totally interested in tv for 30 minutes. I wish they'd bring him back during the waking hours!
One of the most interesting things I learned from him a few years ago was making and using "compost tea". This is a water based mix made from compost that is SO nutritious for your garden! I've included a link to compost tea for you to look at and see how to make it.
If you're not into making compost tea (it is a little messy), The Happy Gardener has some wonderful products that are great for your plants. One of our best sellers is "Foliar Feed" for both indoors and outdoors. It's an excellent plant food that, rather than having to apply weekly like most plant foods, you only apply monthly. Some of the benefits of Foliar Feed include:
- micronutrient foliar spray
- increases photosynthesis
- enhances plant color & vigor
- for use with glossy leaves
- available in 32 oz ready to use bottle
Spray directly on leaf. Apply monthlyThis is what makes "Happy Naturals" products from The Happy Gardener an economical choice. You could spend a fortune buying products at your local nursery that require feeding daily or weekly. With Foliar Feed, since feeding is only once a month (even in the growing season), the food goes alot further than a weekly product.
So check it out when you have time. Go to http://www.thehappygardener.info and see what I'm talking about. If you'd like to place an order, just email me and I will be happy to help!
