    Sol Soils...Time for Repotting

    Sol Soils...Time for Repotting

    It's time to try new and different things! It's the first day of March. The freshness and newness of a new season feel great! The Camellia buds are swelling, daffodils are opening up, and the crocus lift their heads to welcome us back into the garden.

    I took a break from podcasting. After a moment to gather my thoughts, I had a few speaking engagements here and there, traveled to some exciting places, and promoted my books. I am easing back into the podcast and the garden as well.

    I recently chatted with the two guys Travis and John of Sol Soils. March is the perfect time to begin transplanting plants that need more rooting space. Listen in to see why Sol Soils might be a resource to consider trying. Precious was pulling me as she shared how exciting it is to try a new product for our indoor jungle - Thank goodness there was no squeaky toy nearby.

    The world has changed, my life has changed, the garden has changed and there is so much to see, do, and chat about. Why not pour a cup of tea and join me?

Growing a tea garden is easy and there are a few new plants which can be used for tea, that is worth investigating. Adding a native plant should be on everyone's mind this year - consider it!

    Believing in the Garden

    Believing in the Garden

    Change in the garden will happen. Plants will die, lighting will change, and Mother Nature will certainly have her way. After a period of mourning, we adapt. It's simply life. However, there is always something left behind that gives us hope.
    Believing in the garden is simply an act of survival.
