Soil3 from Super Sod has become the most important gardening tool I use. The quality of this “black cake mix” compost is unmatched and the convenience of the water proof, 1 cubic yard bag that gets delivered to my house has made my life as a gardener so much easier! I only wish I knew about this product when I started my garden in 2011.

It’s Fall y’all!

Now is the time to sow your cool season flowers and vegetables!

 Larkspur is a gorgeous, easy to grow flower for brilliant spring color.  Another advantage is the deer HATE it! Sow your seeds directly in 1” of Soil3 October-December and allow them to germinate in place- they don’t like to be transplanted.

Fall is upon us and it is the perfect time to get planting for the cool season. There are endless possibilities for transforming your landscape into a beautiful and bountiful space with easy-to-grow crops that require very little maintenance.As a northern transplant, I used to consider fall to be the end season, as a long cold winter would soon turn the garden into a snowy, frozen tundra. Upon moving to North Carolina I quickly realized that autumn was not a season of finale but rather a time of incredible opportunity. As the days get shorter and cooler temperatures grace our region, fall is the perfect season to enjoy time spent outside.

I believe gardening should be a part of every elementary school’s curriculum. There is so much valuable information that can be taught to ensure the children of the next generation grow up to be the best stewards of the land and themselves.  You see, kids who learn to garden also gain an awareness of better eating habits, an appreciation for the environment, and a keen level of gratitude for what hardworking farmers around the world provide. 

When the Fuquay Garden Club approached me about raising money to install a Foodscape at a local elementary school I was thrilled! I was so inspired by the idea of local gardening enthusiasts working to educate the children in our community through the outreach of the school’s garden club teacher. It was arranged that all the profits from the 2017 Fuquay Garden Tour be donated to the Herbert Akins Elementary School Garden project.

The greatest gift we can offer as gardeners is to teach the next generation and instill values of being kind and capable stewards of the Earth.
