Community Service in the Garden

This past Saturday we had a very hard working high school student in the garden. He planted a couple of milkweed plants in the butterfly garden, helped to straighten out the hill area and did snail patrol in the raised beds. His name is Eddy, and he'll be back each Saturday the rest of the month.

If you know a student who needs community service hours, have him/her contact me via the gmail account; I am happy to have their help!

I will be in the garden Wednesday morning, around 10 a.m. We need to keep the myriads of snails out of the beds, they are wreaking havoc.
Dig a hole as deep as the root ball and twice as wide
 Gently roll the plastic pot, loosening the root ball
 Tip the plant out, use a shovel to divide and flatten the root ball
 Fill the planting hole with water and allow it to drain
Put in your new plant, backfill with the original soil; it is not recommended to add new soil or amendments.
