Growing Superb Gardens and Plants

 

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

Gardening News:


Spring Planting in Full Swing Every gardener has got their hands into some dirt. The planting season is a wonderful time of year.  As you plant your victory garden, just be sure to provide your young plants protection against frost, cold weather and strong winds. Help young transplants to get their feet established into their new home. And, enjoy watching them grow!



In Search of Seeds! Each year, we begin our gardening season with a search for seeds for the upcoming year. It's a lot of fun browsing seed catalogs, and surfing the internet for a treasure trove of promising garden seeds. Whether you like to browse through a seed catalog by the fireside, or surf online, make plans now to find the seeds that you want to plant this spring.



Indoor Plant Starts - Starting seeds indoors to transplant later, is one of the early joys of gardening. Why let the garden stores have all the fun, when you can start your own seedlings!? While winter goes by, review the basics of seed starting, and seedling care. As a rule of thumb, most indoor starts should be planted six to eight weeks before the last frost in your area.



Pest Control - Your flowers and veggies are up and growing. ......kewl! You are anxiously awaiting the harvest. So are the birds, deer, rabbits, and a vast army of other pests. Check out the Buffet Buster! It ends their snack time...period.

 



Have you ever taken a soil pH test in your houseplants? Why not? Each pot can result in wild swings on the pH scale. An off balance pH in your houseplant's soil, often is the answer for a sick plant.More on soil pH
