Florida Friendly Pumpkin Patch

October 20, 2010 by Rick

Gardeners are getting so clever with pumpkins these days. In Florida it is tough to grow pumpkins of any size with our summer heat and rain. A clever idea I have seen is to grow Ornamental Sweet Potatoes as a permanent easy to care for ground cover and place your pumpkins, gourds and corn stalks as if the vines had actually produced your crop. These imitation pumpkin vines contrast nicely with pumpkins or gourds and easily fool the untrained eye. For even more contrast you can add a colorful border to contain and frame your pumpkin patch by edging it with SausEdge.

Let your imagination run and look at some of these Links:

 

Pumpkin 1                Pumpkin 2                      Pumpkin 3                              Pumpkin 4

 

Another idea is to grow your Ornamental Sweet Potatoes in large containers as SPILLERS and arrange them on your front porch or patio with pumpkins and other colorful containers of Crotons as FILLERS and ornamental grass as THRILLERS. Try orange or black coleus for additional seasonal color that last longer than mums.

 Ornamental Sweet Potato Persian Shaield Combo

Add some Muhly Grass to your display and later plant if in a sunny spot in the garden. I also have a wonderful friend and great gardener, Janis, whose nickname is Pumpkin and here is her Blog.

Spring is Coming to The Home Depot Garden Centers

February 19, 2010 by Rick

Over the last 3 weeks I have traveled around the state and met with 600 Home Depot garden associates spreading news and knowledge about great Florida Friendly Plants. This excited team is chomping at the bit for good weather after all the freezes we have had. We did have a little sleet and snow on January 10th in parts of Florida. What an El Nino winter this has been! With climate change we know winter and summer precipitation will be greater as there will be much more water vapor in the atmosphere as the planet warms yet droughts in drought prone areas are worsening. Poor Australia! We gardeners will just have to take what mother nature sends our way.

Home Depot Associates

 

 

A good percentage of associates are Florida Certified Horticulture Professionals (FCHP). Much of what I shared with the long time Home Depot garden associates (some as much as 20 year vets) is in the post  Successful Gardening in 2010.

SausEdge - get the edge on your beds...

November 8, 2009 by Rick

At most Florida Home Depot stores, SausEdge is a new way we developed to quickly and easily ...get an edge on your beds. The unique biodegradable paper covered tube of soil and roots holds together for guaranteed success. The tube dries out slower and breathes to maintain the proper water to air to root relationship for success. Bury the tube and mulch the bed for best success. Now is a great time to get a beautiful edge on your plant and flower beds to add the finished look to your yard. Try this new innovation and see just how easy and effective it is.

SausEdge in Hand

  4 feet of Plant Edging per package – Half the Work and Half the Cost of Container Plants

Reduce the amount of turf by adding SausEdge around all your beds and add continuity to your design by tying the bed together.

It is so much easier than planting individual pots and you will be so much more successful if you use SausEdge.
