Garden Guide for April 2017

Cool Looks, Cool Herbs
and a Cool App for April

Get ready for spring with our helpful Garden Guide. This month we focus on everything you need to do for a happy well-growing garden. From garden bed preparation to soil temperature guides, we give you what you need to make your garden thrive! Speaking of thriving—our featured plant for April is mint. Learn about spearmint vs. peppermint and choose a variety that suits you. Decide if you want to dry it and make tea or use it fresh in your cooking. Either way, it’s a great addition to any garden. While you are working in your garden cultivating your mint, be sure to keep yourself protected from the elements with our cool selection of hats! Great sun protection along with style—what could be better than that? We’ll tell you what is better—these days there’s an app for everything, and yes, now there is an app to help you control your sprinklers. Read more about Blossom 8 below. Finally, think about adding some new patio furniture to your home—in adult and kid sizes! Yup, the little ones need a place to rest after playing, and why not let them relax in style? Our warehouse is full of wonderful styles that will work for you and your family.

 

Add Freshness with Mint!

Chocolate Mint

Fresh Mint: Spearmint vs. Peppermint

What would summer be without fresh mint from the garden? To add minty zest to summer drinks, salads, and sauces or freshness to any dish, choose smoother flavored mints from the spearmint family, like Kentucky Colonel, Mojito, or Mint-the-Best. Stronger flavored peppermints should be dried before using in cooking or when making tea because they have a high concentration of menthol which may cause food to taste like a cough drop. Varieties that are in the peppermint family include Chocolate Mint (think Peppermint Patty), Orange Mint, or the original, Peppermint. We suggest you plant mint in containers to keep it from taking over your garden. For best results, use Gardner and Bloome Potting Soil. Plant cool mints for a summertime treat! We have several varieties to choose from.

Watering Made Easy with an App!

Blossom 8: The Smart Water Controller

Blossom 8: The Smart Water Controller

Make your sprinklers smarter with total control at your fingertips! Save water (and money) by replacing your old sprinkler controller! Download the Blossom 8 App to your phone (Apple iOS and Google Android) and connect Blossom 8 to your Wi-Fi. You can program up to 8 watering zones, and Blossom 8 uses real-time weather forecasts to make watering more accurate: more water on warm, dry days, less when the weather requires it. Simple to set up and install and paired with a highly user-friendly interface, Blossom 8 takes the guesswork out of how long your sprinklers need to run, allowing you to “set it and forget it.”

April Tips for Success
in Your Garden
Checkbox

Get your garden beds ready for spring and summer flowers and vegetables:

  1. 1. Select a sunny area that has a minimum of 6 hours of sun.

  2. 2. Test your soil with a simple soil test kit to find the pH and nutrient levels of your soil.

  3. 3. Pull weeds before they set seed.

  4. 4. Double dig your soil and incorporate Gardner and Bloome Harvest Supreme or Planting Mix and Gardner & Bloome Fertilizers.

  5. 5. Set up a RainDrip Irrigation System.

  6. 6. Make a shopping list of the varieties of plants (particularly tomatoes) that are known to perform best in your area… we are happy to give you some ideas!

Checkbox

When temperatures at night are staying consistently at or above 50 degrees, plant warm-season flowers and vegetables outside, from seed or plant starts. Corn, beans, radishes, carrots and all other root crops are best sown from seed directly into the ground. It is educational and helpful to use a Minimum-Maximum Thermometer home to monitor the night-time low temperatures in your garden vs. the weather reports for the general area. You may be surprised to discover that you are in a warm pocket or micro-climate allowing you to get an earlier start on your summer garden.

Checkbox

Protect roses and tomatoes from diseases such as Powdery Mildew, Rust, Leaf Spots and Blight by using organic Serenade Disease Control (OMRI).

Checkbox

Night time temperatures should be close to 50 degrees or warmer consistently to ensure a healthy start for heat loving plants like tomatoes, basil, impatiens and petunias. Start your gardens early, and get a jump start on the season by using Season Starter (Wall-O-Water), Garden Frost Blankets or Pop-Up Greenhouses.

Checkbox

Check your irrigation system; especially drip systems, to be sure all parts are working properly.

Checkbox

Bait for Slugs. Apply non-toxic Sluggo Snail and Slug Control. Re-apply at 2-week intervals for a total of three applications to help break their life cycle and give you better control of these pests through the growing season. This eco-friendly product is safe to use around pets, wildlife and people.

Checkbox

Fertilize shrubs, trees, lawns, groundcover, etc., if you have not already done so this spring. Use Gardner & Bloome All Purpose Fertilizers.
