You might have heard already heard of the Gardenieres, or maybe you're wondering what they are? What *is* a Gardeniere? Well, let me tell you! :) They are a group of green thumbs led by the famous master gardener, William Moss. They’re honest gardening enthusiasts with plenty of experience in gardening and growing.
The Gardenieres will be travelling the country, with great hopes of helping inspire us to create gardens of our own. Winning the wars over unique growing challenges faced in certain areas and communities, and reaching out to us online, in social networks and right in our own neighborhoods. They want to help!
The Gardenieres are sponsored by and working with Scott's (the makers of Miracle-Gro) and Home Depot to help make your gardening season fantastic.
There are so many interesting projects that the Gardenieres are eager to help you complete. My personal favorite, and something I've been thinking about doing for awhile, is greating a potted herb garden.
I absolutely love the tip to use a strawberry planting pot! You can really save space that way. I am so glad I saw that video, because I probably would have filled the pot with soil first and then tried to plant my herbs, but by placing them through the pot first and then adding the soil, it's much easier on you and the plants.
I love the ideas to help you Find beauty in the Fall. I've planted some mums already in pots on my front porch. I'm what you might call a bit of a black thumb, but I'm learning through the years. Good quality soil like Miracle-Gro's Potting Mix (which contains a continous release plant food to nourish plants for up to six months!), and certainly plant food like LiquaFeed® Bloom Booster® Flower Food can really help. I see they recommend using the Liqua Feed about two weeks after potting your mums (but it's also great for other flowers, vegetables, and shrubs, too!)
I will be keeping an eye on the Miracle-Gro Facebook page for more tips and videos from The Gardenieres to make my yard and garden beautiful for all seasons.
