  • March is the month to feed your garden. Trees, shrubs, hedges, roses, perennials, vines, and small fruits can all be fertilized now. We stock a large selection of organic fertilizers which we know you will love! Our bulk ‘Organic Mix ‘ Fertilizer makes it easy and it is great for just about everything and is available in a large sack or in small amounts by the pound.  Not sure what to use or how?  Ask us and we will show you:)
  • Rhododendrons, azaleas, heather, camellias, hedges and other acid loving plants can be fertilized with Plant Prod ‘Ever Acid’ liquid fertilizer for lovely deep green foliage and for the acidifying that they need
  • Plant new trees, shrubs, roses, perennials, pansies, small fruits and hardy herbs. Include bonemeal, peat moss and manure or your own compost when planting and don’t forget to water new transplants frequently
  • Hold off trimming down bulbs such as tulips and daffodils until the foliage is yellowing as this process is feeding the bulb for next Spring
  • Prune summer blooming clematis back to about 3′. Leave Spring blooming varieties of clematis to prune, if necessary, after they flower as you would cut off the buds if you pruned these now
  • Prune roses when the daffodils begin to bloom (usually early to mid March) and apply ¼ cup dry Epson salts around the base and scratch it in
  • Prune Spring blooming shrubs such as Forsythia, magnolia and lilac after flowering
  • Weed gardens before the weeds have a chance to flower and go to seed
  • Compost or manure can be added to flower beds now
  • Purchase summer flowering bulbs, roots, and tubers such as dahlias, lilies, hostas, glads and plant as packages recommend.  Generally the winter hardy types like lilies and hostas are planted after March 1st and non-winter hardy types like dahlias and glads are planted after April 1st.  Begonias are started indoors from February on but do not get transplanted outdoors until after Mother’s Day (same as most annuals)
  • This is the time of year that the large shipments of new plants arrive and there is just about always something new at the Garden Centre!

Lawn Caregar big lawn

  • Control Moss in lawns if necessary (You will need two days of dry weather after it has been applied)
  • Thatch lawn to remove thatch in older lawns and dead moss in lawns recently treated with moss control. (10 days after moss control)
  • Lime lawns in preparation for fertilizing about two weeks later
  • Feed lawn with a good quality Spring fertilizer.  We like BC made Garden Pro 32-4-8 as it is made for our specific growing conditions
  • Pull dandelions and other weeds from lawn before they flower and make new seeds

Ensure plants used in  gardens will provide visual enjoyment all year long and meet the the sizes set out are set out front to back where visibility is a concern

Chafer Beetles Destroyed Your Lawn?

Some of the most extensive lawn damage we’ve seen lately has been courtesy of the invasive chafer beetle. With grubs feeding on grass roots throughout much of the year, lawns can quickly become wilted and brown as they struggle to acquire much-needed nutrients and water. Above ground, birds and small mammals act as mini roto-tillers as they search out a meal of grubs. The end result of chafer beetle infection is often wide sections of lawn, damaged beyond repair.

By amending their existing soil with a quality topsoil to improve the nutritional quality and structure of their soil – the better to support a beautiful lawn!.

Some lawns may also benefit from the addition of garden lime, as heavy concentrations of weeds and moss are one signal that your soil may be too acidic. Learn more about what garden lime is and when you should consider using before applying lime to your lawn.

Keep grass healthy, long to ward off chafer beetles

letting grass grow to combat chafer beetle infestations.

“The adults in the summer have to lay their eggs into the turf grass, and if the turf is thin or if the grass is very short then they have no problem getting their ovipositors [organ used to lay eggs] into the grass,”

More on chafer beetles in B.C.
“If your lawn is mossy or thin, or if you over water, over fertilize that makes the grass really soft, really easy to rip up, so those kinds of things make lawns susceptible to chafer beetle.

“Really if the grass is healthy and the roots are deep and your grass isn’t cut too short, then chafer beetle is not a big problem.”2017 06 19 wv Vancoiuver BC ubc eagleridge flowers aplus fire p ss a

Tree Talk

There are no doubts that coast redwood is the tallest tree species on Earth. This might be lucky (for coast redwood) coincidence – in recent past there were coast Douglas firs (in United States and Canada) and eucalypts (in Australia) of comparable height and possibly higher, but these trees were ruthlessly cut. Nowadays there are known many hundreds of coast redwoods exceeding the height of 100m… and no trees of other species exceeding this height.
Tallest and largest known tree was Lindsey Creek tree (Fieldbrook, California), uprooted by storm in 1905. This tree was 118.9 m tall, diameter could reach 11.6 m.Garden tree advice

It is believed that if there was a Robin Hood, he and his merry men took shelter under this tree, and even inside its trunk, when Sherwood Forest was much larger and easy to disappear into. It is at least 800 years old, and maybe 1,000, making its use by people of Robin Hood’s time possible. It would have already stood close to its present size by that time. major oak sherwood

The oldest known olive tree on Earth, with a tree ring age of at least 2,000 years. Carbon daters have estimated it to be about 4,000 years old, and it still produces tasty olives today. It is 15 feet thick at the base, is not particularly tall, as olive trees go, but is, quite literally, gnarly. Totally gnarly. The trunk is magnificently swirled, knotted, and bulbousOlive tree

How to keep Up with the Garden Work with Healthy thoughts

Body by ViSalus is a good health product I have been on for 2 years now.
and is a good way to keep my belly full and making it smaller with all the good vitamins involved.

and the 25 pounds that I lost in 3 months with out working out.

its worth trying because it tastes like cookies,
so any type of shake is good with Visalus in it

so i keep making them shakes so I don’t miss breakfast, which is not good for anybody.
