Growing Superb Gardens and Plants

      Welcome to Garden Hobbies, a great place for you and your plants........

Gardening News:

Plant Problems.... For most  of us, our gardens are growing strong with a profusion of flowers, vegetables and fruits. However, when a problem occurs, panic understandably sets in. There's a frantic search for the cause and a quick fix. About Plant Problems and Diseases

Made in the Shade.... A shady yard doesn't mean a yard devoid of flowers and plants It means selecting and growing the right plants for a shady environment. Many plants thrive in low light conditions. Most popular among these are ferns and hostas. More on Shade Gardens.

Composting starts now.... and continues all season long. Correction: make that "all year" long. The best gardens are grown by gardeners who make their own compost. More on Composting.

Second Season Seeds - We use seeds all year long. Once the main crops have been planted, we all need seeds for succession planting, and later on, for cool weather, short maturity harvest.  Southern areas actually begin their second season in mid summer. Our sister site has seeds in stock all year long.

Fall Planted Bulbs August brings to mind bulbs for fall planting. They are now arriving in the marketplace. The highest quality bulbs don't have to be the most expensive. Look for the largest bulbs, which produce the biggest spring blooms. Storage is important to bulb health. Avoid the "big box" stores, which don't properly store them, and offer lower, sometimes disappointing quality.

Harvest Time means canning and drying fruits, vegetables, and herbs. You worked hard to grow them. Now, you can prepare and store excess foods for later use.....kewl!

Pest Protection - Protect your garden, bushes and shrubs from foraging wildlife. Keep deer and bunnies from nibbling and snacking on your plants.

Homeowners love Arborvitae. Fast growing with little care, they are among the most popular of evergreens for both foundation plants and hedgerows. More on Arborvitaes.
