Squat Pots look great! What can I grow in them?
It’s not too late to help your plants through the vegetative stage
Transplanting made easy
Stress for your plants is a very real thing: Plant stress is a state where the plant is growing in non-ideal growth conditions that increase the demands made upon it. The effects of stress can lead to deficiencies in growth, crop yields, permanent damage or death if the stress exceeds the plant tolerance limits – yipes! Though you may try to remove the plant from the pot with the greatest care, the plant will be affected, and if it’s not replanted quickly – and with care – the stress will be difficult for it to overcome.

Isn’t a wooden planter ideal?
One of the more expensive – and harder to get rid of – mainstays in many gardens is the wooden planter. Sure, it seems like a great D.I.Y. weekend project, but it comes with a set of problems all its own that may make your garden into more work in the long run.

5 common gardening questions for this spring
No matter how many years someone’s been working on their garden, there’s always something new to learn and ask about. Because we’re well-versed in how the season changes for each grower, here are the top 5 common gardening questions for the spring season:
It’s spring – get your plants fed the right way!
One of the best ways to make sure your sprouts are well-fed is to use the best organic fertilizer, specially formulated for the vegetative state. Geoflora VEG fits this bill, and then some! Geoflora VEG is a 5-3-4 NPK formula designed to be applied during transplant and as a top dress to ensure vigorous growth in plants while also creating an established, well-supported microbial environment as your plants progress through their life cycle.
If you want a perfect garden, you have to start with a perfect planter
You may now be looking as to how you can improve your plot layout, fertilizer, soil, or choice of seeds in order to improve your yields. An easy way to do this is to use a planter for your grow! By using a planter, you’re in complete control of the soil, how much water can drain out, knowing how much fertilizer to use, as well as one of the better ways to keep pests under control and out of your garden. Not only that, but plants grown in a planter tend to have a bigger yield because of this level of control over their environment.
Outside looking iffy? Give your plants a room of their own
Not THAT kind of acid...
One of the most useful organic substances for any garden is humic acid. The word ‘acid’ may raise some eyebrows – who wants to put acid in their garden!? The good news is, it’s not ‘acid’ in the corrosive, chemical form, but rather, humic acids that are the final break-down components of the natural decay of plant and animal materials, and even prehistoric deposits. The takeaway from this is that humic acid is all-natural, and definitely not a chemical acid that we’d strongly suggest you avoid!
Getting to the root of your container plant problems…
Tribus Microbes Original is a highly concentrated, targeted blend of three growth-promoting rhizobacteria that can be used with organic or conventional growing practices to increase crop quality and quantity. These bacteria work symbiotically with the plant by producing extracellular enzymes and other biochemicals that maximize nutrient availability and uptake, improving root and stem growth, and increasing the plant’s growth rate. The bacteria in Tribus Original™ will populate the root zone of plants in all mediums and does not cause problematic biofilm formation in hydroponic applications.
