Spring is the time of year when all of us in the garden center are excited for sun, warmth, plants and new stuff.  Nothing symbolizes this more than our Annual Spring Expo coming up this Saturday and Sunday, April  14th and 15th.  With that in mind I would like to share with you some of the new garden center products you will see at Expo and in our stores this spring.

Hi-Yield has a new weed prevention product this year.  What’s different about it you ask?  Well, it provides superior control of Crabgrass and many other annual grass and broadleaf weeds in ornamental landscape areas.  It may be applied to either bare ground or mulched ornamental bed areas.  Application can be applied much later than traditional weed preventers such as Preen.

Jiffy Products has a new Organic, all-purpose soil.  100% Organic Soil, designed for the special pH and nutrient needs of today’s seed and plant varieties.  A greenhouse quality soil mix, this is the very best seed-starting mix available!

Tired of mowing the lawn at the cabin up north?  Green Guard Freedom Mix is a new blend of grass seed that requires mowing only 2 or 3 times a year.  Now that is cool!  Where’s the hammock?

What’s super cool with seed potatoes?  We have a selection of fingerlings and gourmet seed potatoes from Jack Rabbit Farms.  If you have never had a fingerling potato, you owe it to yourself to try them.  Fingerling potatoes have a creamy, almost sweet flavor that goes well with meat, poultry, and fish.  They’re a nice alternative to your standard white or red potatoes.

Want to be the neighbor with bigger and better plants?  Sylva Soils Pro-Growth Formula soil is a product the eliminates the need for manure and peat.  Pro-Growth is a complete soil product that is great for amending soil beds for vegetables, flower gardens, and even planting of trees and shrubs.  The science behind it is that it reduces compaction, releases useable nutrients in the soil and stimulates the native soil organisms.
