Helpful Hints for Fall Planting

Newspaper Weeds Gone:

  • Work nutrients  into the planting hole.
  • Put in your plants.
  • Water well.
  • Wet newspapers, put layers around the plants (two inches from stems) overlapping as you go.  
  • Cover  with mulch and forget about weeds.

Weeds will get through some  gardening plastic they will not get through wet newspapers. This is a wonderful way to re-cycle old newspapers.

For Healthy, Gorgeous Roses:

  • Once a month: Take several over-ripe bananas, slice into 2 inch sections (skins and all)
  • Make a shallow hole and put in banana section. Fill hole. 
  • Sprinkle epsom salts into the soil around the base of rose bush. Water well.
  • Your rose blossoms will be huge and healthy.

Neem to The Rescue:

For leaves that have been "munched" and are lacy and full of holes, contact me for Pure Neem . This  insect control is for all of your plants and trees.  Contains no toxic additives. Good for people, animals, and the planet.
