“Frost Proof” Flowers?

Pansies...The tuff guys in the Garden Center!

 People use the term “Pansy” when describing someone wimpy and weak…This strikes me funny because Pansies are the most durable flowers I have ever seen! Yesterday morning I came in after a night time low of 26 degrees and found them frozen solid! After they thawed in the sun as the day warmed, they looked as good as ever! Pansies are not at all wimpy!  They are the strongest little workhorses I have ever seen…They take a beating and keep on smiling with their cute little FACES!  If you want color NOW, in early Spring when it is still freezing at night, Pansies are your best bet!

New Item – EZ Composter

NEW  EZ COMPOSTER AVAILABLE THIS SPRING!

The art of composting has been around for some time.  Most people either have a compost pile or know some one who does.  But it’s not just for the savvy, green-thumbed, garden grower anymore.  As land-fills fill up, it’s becoming more and more apparent that we can’t afford to just throw away our organic scraps.  Over 20 million tons of organic trash is thrown out each year in the US alone.

The best way to cut down this number is by recycling this waste into compost for plants and vegetables.  Compost recycling does more than save the scraps from the landfills.  You save money on recycling bags, curb side services, and fertilizer/potting soil.  So the savings are lucritive for both your wallet and the planet.

Composting typically takes a long time as it needs to be aerated often, but new developments in composting technology have cut composting time down significantly.

Good Ideas has developed a line of composters that optimize composting by maximizing aeration while cutting down on compost maintenance and time spent composting.
