Why Mulch??

Have you done your mulching yet for this spring? It’s never too late to mulch!

Is it worth going to the extra work of mulching your flowerbeds or gardens? Absolutely! There are several very good reasons why using mulch is beneficial.

        *  Mulch keeps weeds down and keeps them from germinating.

        *  It helps keep moisture in the ground which is a big plus during hot summer months.

        *  As it breaks down and decomposes it adds nutrients to your soil.

        *  Mulching in the fall keeps roots of more sensitive plants from freezing during the winter.

So what kind of mulch do you need? Regular undyed bark mulch is great for trees, shrubs, blueberry plants, etc. Dyed hardwood mulch does the job as well, plus it keeps its color longer. Bark mulch will soon fade but has an advantage in that it adds more nutrients to your soil since it decomposes more quickly.

 For vegetable gardens and flowerbeds planted with annuals, mushroom compost is the perfect choice.  Besides keeping down weeds and keeping in moisture, it also acts as a fertilizer to your plants. Mushroom compost is also the best kind of mulch to mulch your roses with in the fall for protection from the winter elements.

Aquatic Plants are Here!

Yes, our aquatic plants are finally here! We have our usual selection of tropical and hardy marginals, hardy lilies, and floaters. Aquatic plants are an excellent addition to  provide life and visual impact to your pond. But they have a practical value as well. They help balance the ecosystem of your pond and feed on the same nutrients that the unsightly algae in your pond feeds on, consequentially starving the algae. Stop by today to pick yours out!
