Garden Guide for November 2014

Re-energize Your Soil

Gardner & Bloome Farmyard Blend

Gardner & Bloome Farmyard Blend

The manufacturer of this useful amendment explains to its customers the reason they created this wonderful old-fashion product.

“In Grandpa’s day, it was common knowledge that old McDonald had the best garden and it was no secret why. Thanks to a menagerie around the farmyard, his soil never lacked a natural supply of organic additives to keep it lush and productive. Well, times have changed and most of us don’t have chickens, ducks, cows and other farmyard friends in the backyard to help out our gardens. Gardner & Bloome put together a mixture of favorite traditional manures plus a dash of long lasting rice hulls and forest humus to improve aeration and longevity in the soil. This blend is then composted to perfection, reducing odor, eliminating weed seeds and improving the texture.”

We here at Scarborough Gardens love this product particularly this time of the year as a top or side dressing around established fruit trees, shrubs, roses and in vegetable and flower beds. You can incorporate it into the soil or lay a 2” layer over the top and let the natural rainfalls aid in its penetration into the soil.

Tie One On!

Scarves

Marquet Fair Trade Scarves

These beautiful scarves are hand-made by artisans in Thailand and Vietnam following the principles of Fair Trade. We stock two distinct designs, the first being the Binh Minh Shawl which is made from 50% cotton and 50% silk. These extremely soft, comfortable scarves come in a wide range of solid colors. They are light-weight and can be used either as a shawl or a neck scarf to keep you comfortable during the chilly days ahead. The second design we stock is called Ton Fai Free Weave Scarf which is made of 100% cotton and is available in both solid colors and fusion color tones. The fabric and the open weave keep it comfortable and light-weight naturally, so you can wear it year-round. What a great gift for family, friends, or yourself to accent and brighten any outfit. Check out this video for inspiration on how to tie scarves.

Choose from hand soaps, dish soaps, surface cleaners and refill bottles. These products are made in the U.S.A. and are all 98% natural. As Mrs. Meyers says, “Hands never had it so good!”

November 2014 Garden Guide

Because we all understand the need to conserve water this year, we want to encourage plant lovers to garden wisely by following a few important water conserving tips.

Checkbox

Add cool season flowers to your garden such as Iceland poppies, Calendula, Primroses, Violas, Pansies, Linaria, and Cyclamen.

Checkbox

Plant your spring blooming bulbs such as Daffodils, Hyacinth, Iris, and Freesias. Because the gophers love Tulips, plant them in Decorative Pots that you can put at your front door or patio when they start to bud and bloom! For best results, incorporate organic Gardner & Bloome Bulb Planting Mix and Fish Bone Meal to your planting area.

Checkbox

Keep leaves which have fallen on your lawn and on plants cleared and raked. They will bury and cause plants below to rot if left unattended.

Checkbox

Remove dead blossoms on Pansies, Cyclamen, Calendula and Primroses to prevent fungus and bacteria from spreading and infecting new flower buds.

Checkbox

Prevent slugs, snails, sowbugs, and earwigs from nibbling at your winter veggies, especially lettuce with organic Sluggo Plus. Apply three times at 10-14 day intervals to stop the life cycle of these pests.

Checkbox

Protect YOUR PLANTS from disease. The first application of organic Monterey Liqui-Cop Disease Control combined with Summit Year-Round Spray Oil should be applied to your fruit trees, dogwoods, and lilacs when the leaves drop.

Checkbox

Protect your frost sensitive plants by covering them with frost blankets, bags, and/or by spraying them with CloudCover. We have affordable mini and pop-up Greenhouses available in several sizes for a more permanent solution.

Checkbox

Feed your lawn with Gardner & Bloome Organic Lawn Fertilizer to help keep it green through winter and to help encourage strong, deep roots.

Checkbox

To keep outdoor container plants happy and healthy, remove the saucers and store them until next year, or turn them upside down under the pots, or fill them with rocks so that the pot is not sitting in trays of water through the rainy season.
