Oh, the glories of summer | Gardening

Gardening is a seasonal experience. By that I mean that there is something different to experience in every season of the year. Spring of course is a fabulous time for the northwest with rhododendrons, azaleas, flowering cherries, dogwoods, daffodils and tulips just to name a few. Fall isn’t too shabby either with a decent display of fall color in the vine maples and sumacs and some fall blooming perennials like mums and asters and of course one cannot forget the ornamental grasses. Winter even has a few highlights for us in the likes of witch hazel, hellebores, Sarcococca, and winter Daphne. But summer, oh glorious summer, may just be the most stupendous of all.

The importance of compost, mulch and fertilizer

If I am remembered for nothing else when I die, it will probably be for the question I always ask my customers when they are purchasing plants: “Have you got some fertilizer and compost?” Beyond all the planting advice and horticultural wisdom, the single most tantamount message I want to leave with all of you is the importance of amending your soils with natural fertilizers and compost and covering them with some kind of organic mulch.
