One of the
things about working in your garden is that the plants don't talk back to you. One of the
things about working in your garden is that the plants don't talk back to you. You see where I am going with this?
With all the hubbub going on these days it is so nice to just sit in the garden and work with the plants, no back~talk, just peace, and quiet. That is until you see that dreaded leaf spot, or that patch of gray fuzz. Or how about the holes? Good golly the holes!!
In their own way, plants
talking to us, we just need to listen
in order to give them a little help. Sounds like a metaphor for life.
Right around the 4th, we hear a lot of complaints about plants not looking quite right. Part of our job is to anticipate what questions to expect from our customers after a harsh/mild winter or a cold, wet spring. We need to take stock of the products that will help with these problems, and the advice we tell many of our customers. Identifying certain reason as to why your plant looks like it does, is where we can help.
In our Blog Post this week we are going to refer back to a post we sent out this past May. It is a reminder that Mother Nature gives us signals or even warning signs of impending problems... that's if we choose to "listen".
Now if only humans could take a lesson from the plant / human relationship, there might be hope for progress... here's to hope!
Have a happy and safe Fourth of July from all of us at Country Garden!
Be well -♥
