DO YOU HAVE TULIPS AND DAFFODILS? HOW ABOUT PANSIES?
ASK THE GARDEN GURU?
|WHAT DO WE NEED TO GET OUR SEEDLINGS GOING?|
ANOTHER GREAT QUESTION!
In this week’s archived show from previous years, the Garden Guru mentioned that a lot of customers at Payne’s are looking for fresh seed and asking what else they need to the get their seed going!
Lynn mentioned that they have all the fresh seed you need for for this year, and Payne’s has the right soil to start the seed in as well as small pots and plastic trays — with clear plastic covers to put over them to hold in the humidity!
Lynn questioned if you’ve never grown a plant from seed you really should try, most of the varieties are very easy to grow — especially if you have kids or grandkids — it’s an excellent project to get them involved in! AND as a rule of thumb… the larger the seed, the easier it is to grow!
Listen to Lynn’s tip on how to grow vegetables from seed!

PLEASE DON’T USE DORMANT OIL, PRUNE, OR FERTILIZE! NOT YET!
SPRING has SPRUNG … BUT the weather isn’t prime yet for feeding, pruning & using dormant oil on your plants.We’ll let you know! Possibly next week?
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF UTILIZING LOCAL GARDEN SOIL?
There are several benefits including:
- It is adapted to the local climate and conditions: Local garden soil is already acclimated to the specific conditions and climate of the region, which makes it easier for plants to thrive.
- It contains local microorganisms: Local soil contains microorganisms that are specific to the region. These microorganisms help to break down organic matter and release nutrients that are essential for plant growth.
- It is less likely to introduce invasive species: When you use soil from another region, you risk introducing invasive species that can harm the local ecosystem. By using local soil, you reduce this risk.
- It supports the local economy: By purchasing local soil, you are supporting Payne’s Organic Soil Yard!
- It can be more affordable: Transporting soil from other regions can be expensive, so using local soil can be a more cost-effective option

PREPARING A NEW GARDEN PLOT
|By National Gardening Association Editors|
Eliminating weeds and getting the soil ready for your flowers and vegetables are important first steps in preparing a new garden. Time spent in preparation reduces the time you’ll have to spend maintaining and weeding your garden over the course of the growing season and increases the chances of success.
Tools and Materials – CHECK WITH PAYNE’S FOR THESE MATERIALS!
String and wooden stakesSpadeHerbicide (*optional*)Hoe or mattockSteel garden rakeSoil testing sample kitSoil amendments, as requiredGarden fork or rototiller
Choose the Spot for Your New Garden
Vegetable gardens and most flowerbeds require at least 6 hours of full sun each day. Choose a level spot — either natural or terraced — that has well-drained soil. Thick grass or vigorous weed growth usually indicate soil drainage and nutrient levels that will support healthy garden plants.
Mark the boundaries.
Outline the new garden plot with string and stakes, a hose, or a line of powdered limestone.
Eliminate the competition for Your Garden
Remove existing lawn by slicing under the sod with a spade and cutting it into manageable pieces. Add the pieces to your compost or use it to patch bare spots elsewhere. Kill weeds by use of an herbicide, pull them by hand, or chop them with a hoe or mattock and rake them up, or use a commercial weed barrier. If time permits, you can smother grass and weeds with old carpeting or black plastic anchored to the ground. For best results, leave the covering in place for several weeks of hot weather.

ZODIAC SIGNS AND GARDENING? HERE’S THIS CYCLES PROFILE.
by The Old Farmer’s Almanac
Here’s THIS MONTHS ZODIAC SIGN PROFILE AND HOW IT CAN HELP YOU GARDEN:
ARIES (March 21 to April 20)
Aries begins the spring. You are a fiery, energetic, and quick individual who likes spicy, invigorating plants and foods. Growing onions, garlic, leeks, cayenne peppers, and tomatoes in the garden is easy for you and brings joy and excitement. (Putting all of these together in a spaghetti sauce is nirvana.) Red is your color, brave soul, and any flower of this hue attracts you. Red bee balm, poppies, zinnias, and celosia are particularly appealing. As the first sign of the zodiac, you love to pioneer new frontiers and directions. The newest plant varieties introduced by the local nursery will be sure to find a home in your garden.
