Organic Gardening

Organic Gardening

If you are like me, then you don’t know any thing about organic gardening, but you would like to then keep reading. I found a great article from a local garden center in Frisco, TX that explains a few basics for beginners like me. So if you are up for experimenting with some new fertilizers for the sake of a greener, safer environment keep reading…

Dry Fertilizer Options:
Gardenville 7-2-2: time release fertilizer helps to restore fertility and benefits microorganisms/earthworm populations.
Earthworm castings: It actually improves aeration and water retention with out burning. It is odorless organic material that is rich in slow release nutrients including calcium, nitrogen, and phosphorous.

Liquid Fertilizers:
Garrett juice: mild, made from compost tea, molasses, seaweed, and apple cider vinegar. Use once a month during growing season
Superthrive: Use as an additive once a month to any liquid fertilizer regimen. Serves as reviver for stressed plants.

Pest Control Options:
Mound Drench: Use to kill fire ants and make their mounds uninhabitable. Contains: orange oil, molasses, and humate.

Good luck with your garden. Let me know if you try these how they work for you! Call me today.

The Shoreline Trail also features five pedestrian bridges that span the natural creeks along the trail as well as several concrete low-water crossings at locations that are wet during rainy periods.

With this area being part of a wildlife management area, visitors can expect to see a number of native plants and wildlife. To help you identify these, a number of signs / panels are provided to enhance the educational opportunities of the area and awareness of the natural systems.

A map of the trail is located at both Ridgepointe & Stewart Creek Parks trailhead parking areas. Several benches, litter receptacles, recycle containers, and pet stations are located along the trail.
