What is National Indoor Plant Week?
It’s a Celebration!!!

National Indoor Plant Week was established to increase public awareness of the importance of indoor plants and their many attributes.

Only some of which include cleaning the air we breathe…we like to say, “The oxygen doesn’t arrive until the plants arrive.” Statistics have proven that indoor plants increase morale in the workplace and homes. The plant is such a miraculous living thing.
Real life office studies have been conducted to measure the direct relationship between clinical health, complaints and plant installations. Recorded health improvements in offices where interior plants were added were significant. Results show a large reduction among employees in the areas of fatigue, headache, coughs and their overall well-being rose dramatically.
Further, numerous studies have shown that plants have a positive psychological impact on people. According to a recent study, employees exposed to interior plant settings demonstrated better attitudes, positive emotions such as happiness, friendliness and assertiveness.

FALL IS FOR PLANTING! PART 1

plantingFall is a great season for planting hardy trees, shrubs, vines, perennials, and bulbs! Here are some great reasons why:
Temperatures are more moderate, which means less moisture loss through leaves and less plant stress. Continue watering as needed.

Weeds are less competition for new plantings. Annual weeds should be removed now, before they go to seed. Perennial weeds can be killed off more effectively with weed killers in the Fall than in the Spring.

Check back next week for Part 2!

THINK SPRING! OUR FALL BULBS ARE HERE!

Payne’s sells ONLY the biggest, highest quality Holland-grown bulbs to make sure you get the largest, longest-lasting, most brilliantly colored blooms.

Fall is the best time of year to plant bulbs of tulips, hyacinth, crocuses and daffodils in order to enjoy their fireworks of colorful blooms come Spring.

Stop by either store and choose from our great selection!

TJ’s TIP: Don’t forget to sprinkle a little bulb food or bone meal in the hole while you are planting the bulbs and also sprinkle a little more on the soil surface to assure healthy growth. Of course, we have both bulb food and bone meal!

UNDER-APPRECIATED PLANTS!
Sorrel (rumex acetosa) – Imagine a trendy green that has a super-long season. It can be used in salads, soups and sauces. This flavorful little leaf brightens everything it touches; yet, it remains an unknown quantity to most home cooks. It’s an incredibly easy plant to grow. It’s a perennial, fast-growing, and winter-resistant green, meaning if you’re looking at a spring garden, you should stock up on sorrel. Like many other spring greens, sorrel has a pronounced flavor. You wouldn’t want to eat just a salad of sorrel, so mix young leaves with milder lettuces. Blanching also helps tone down the bitterness.
Another plant we carry that gets very little attention is Rue (ruta graveolens). Rue is commonly known as Rue, Common Rue or Herb-of-Grace. It is mostly grown as an ornamental plant, but it is also cultivated as a medicinal herb, and to a lesser extent as an insect repellent. The yellow blooms attract butterflies and bees. It is now grown throughout the world in gardens, especially for its bluish leaves, and sometimes for its tolerance of hot and dry soil conditions. It is also a perennial.
Last, Talinum (talinum paniculatum) – commonly known as Jewels of Opar or Fame Flower. The stunning lime green leaves bring a cooling feel to any garden and the tiny pink flowers look like smoke over the plants. Does well in hot dry areas such as rock gardens or areas where not much else grows. It also looks great in pots. It prefers full sun, but can tolerate a small amount of shade for part of the day. It is very easy to grow and care for. It will reseed once established. It is overlooked mostly because its flowers do not open until late in the day. But once they open, you have a very showy plant.

HAPPY GARDENING!

TIME TO BRING IN THOSE HOUSEPLANTS THAT WE PUT OUTSIDE THIS SPRING! LISTEN TO THE GARDEN GURU ON WHAT YOU MUST DO FIRST!

ferninpot

Last week, the Garden Guru mentioned that it’s time to bring in your houseplants that have been living outdoors for the Summer!

The Garden Guru suggested that the first thing you should do is inspect your plants very carefully for insects. Insects can be pretty tricky. They can hide underneath the leaf or where the leaf attaches to the stem. They can crowd themselves down in that little bitty space and they’re hard to see — so you really need to go over them carefully and make sure that they don’t have any insects on them before you bring them back in the house. A secondary precaution that Lynn suggests to do before you bring in those houseplants is… well, LISTEN to Lynn’s tip to find out!

radioTune in every Friday on KHFM Radio (95.5 FM) between 4 and 5 pm you’ll hear Lynn Payne’s tip of the week. The “Garden Guru” himself provides information on different topics including gardening tips, fun facts about plants, how to plant and prepare your garden for each season and special announcements.
