When you are finished with the day treat yourself to a luxurious bath filled with Peacock Perfumerie Bath Salts.  Get started today, before you know it the holidays will be here!

A Persimmon A Day

Fuyu Persimmons

Fuyu Persimmons, aka “Apple Persimmon

This beautiful tree is a wonderful addition to the garden for several reasons. It provides a canopy of green foliage for shade during the warm months and then vibrant red colored leaves in autumn, followed by orange fruit hanging on the tree like lanterns in October and November.  Most importantly it will produce a delicious fruit that is good for you and your family. Most people think of persimmons as a fruit that needs to ripen until very soft. Not the Fuyu variety though! It can be eaten when it is firm and crunchy just like an apple. Some say it tastes like a combination of flavors similar to pumpkin pie; others think it tastes a bit like apricots with brown sugar and cinnamon. However you describe it, we think you will love their flavor and texture. This easy to grow, self-fruitful tree reaches approximately 15 feet tall and wide. It is adapted to cool or hot climates which makes it a good choice throughout our county. It is also tolerant of many soils and is quite drought tolerant once established.

September 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.
For more info go to

Checkbox

Re-evaluate your garden. Prepare to re-design unattractive areas with water conserving plants, including edibles that provide you and your family with healthy, fresh food. Some excellent low water choices include Persimmons, Pineapple Guavas, Apples, and Pomegranates. Think about planting California, Australian and South African natives to add color and texture to the garden. For best results amend soil with Gardner & Bloome Organic Compost and Gardner & Bloome Starter Fertilizer. Remember FALL is the BEST time for planting!

Checkbox

Spread Wildflower Seeds. California Poppies, Lupines, and Toadflax are particularly successful and beautiful in our climate, and are deer resistant! To get the best results keep area cleared of competing weeds and water when rain is followed by a dry spell if they’ve started to germinate. View our Guide to Success for Planting Wildflowers.

Checkbox

Avoid putting weeds that have seeds on them into your compost pile. Many home compost piles do not heat up enough to kill weed seeds. If you don’t you will end up with viable weed seeds being spread throughout your garden next season when using your compost. Add Gardner & Bloome Compost Accelerator to hasten the decomposition process.

Checkbox

Divide and plant perennials so they become well rooted before spring.

Checkbox

Don’t be tempted to severely prune ornamental grasses until February when new growth is visible.

Checkbox

Start cool season flowers and veggies from seed. Examples include spinach, kale, broccoli, lettuce, beets, carrots, peas, radishes, turnips, pansies, violas, calendulas, etc. For those of us not near the coast, you may want to wait till the end of the month to set out your seedling or Jumbo 6-packs starts. Use Gardner & Bloome Fertilizers and Gardner & Bloome Harvest Supreme for best results.

Checkbox

Spring Blooming Bulbs arrive this month. Purchase your favorites early for best selection, but wait until October through November to plant them, when the weather is cooler.  Keep tulips and hyacinths refrigerated in a paper bag in the vegetable compartment of your refrigerator for 4-6 weeks prior to planting. Use Gardner & Bloome Bulb Planting Mix with Gardner & Bloome Fish Meal Fertilizer to help you succeed.

Checkbox

Invest in quality tools and gloves to help you get the job done more efficiently and easily.
