Save money in your garden and keep your perennial plants healthy by learning how to divide them yourself properly. Follow our helpful guide to get this fun gardening job done right.
Besides keeping plants well-watered while temps are high, now is the perfect time to look ahead to fall and fall-planted bulbs! We’re now offering pre-order opportunities for popular Mums, Tulips, and Daffodils now, to get vibrant colors added to your landscape this autumn and next spring.
Recently, we’ve seen an increase in attention focused on the plight of pollinators, in particular the honeybee. Honeybees are extremely important agricultural pollinators, while other native bees are also seeing population declines. The Rusty Patched Bumblebee is native to the Upper Midwest and was just added to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Services endangered list. Many people have been asking us what they can do to help support local St. Louis-area bee, butterfly, and other pollinator populations.
Don’t wait until it’s too late; check out this list of things you need to know before you start your 2017 spring gardening season!
