What a great testimonial for growing cannabis with Hormex Rooting Powders!

“Hormex rooting powder #8 and #16 have been indispensable for my cannabis plants. I am a master grower who has most recently been a part of the Emerald Cup 2016 in Northern California and wouldn’t use any other rooting product. I’ve tried plenty and I just keep coming back to Hormex. I don’t like using gel based products at all. Aside from not rooting nearly as well, you can end up with root rot and a few other issues if you’re not careful. The #8 is great for most of my strains but I use #16 on my really hard to root ones. No one else has a product even close to it. I shouldn’t be giving away any of my secrets but I just can’t help but share. I wish I could post pictures of my results.” – Anonymous, Emerald Cup 2016 Contestant

One of the many wonderful things about Spring, and there are many wonderful things about Spring, is the fact that it’s bug season.  Yes, bug season. Now, many people cringe at just the thought of bugs and they do so for many good reasons.  Unless you are an armchair entomologist who has an affinity for the predators of the micro-jungle inhabiting our backyards, you may think this statement a bit daft. However, not all bugs are pests. Some bugs are creatures you will most definitely want in your garden.

Spring is mating and birthing season. This applies to many beneficial insects as well, including the king of the micro-jungle the Praying Mantis. Mantids play an intricate role in Integrated Pest Management, or IPM. IPM is something that all Gardeners should hone up on.  One of the greatest benefits to employing Mantids is that they almost become like pets. From watching and waiting for the emergence of hundreds of Nymphs to the eventual survival of only a few, one can easily develop a bond.  It is said that by feeding young Nymphs by hand, using cold cuts, you can train them to get accustomed to being held by hand. This author has found that very few seemed interested in processed meat but, for the most part, as long as you don’t approach them with sudden movements, they tend to feel quite comfortable crawling all over your hands.  

This is also the best time of the year to purchase beneficial insects at a local nursery. Mantids begin their life cycle in a Chrysalis or ‘cocoon’. It’s best to place them around problem bushes in the yard.  It’s important to get them fresh. Select them as you would eggs at the supermarket; you wouldn't want eggs that weren't refrigerated.  And the same can be said for buying fresh cocoons.

You may be tempted to pick up a container of Lady Bugs at the Nursery for their prettiness. However, be warned that the majority of them will venture off soon after release in search of the same cool forest that they were previously captured in. There are tricks to encouraging them to stay, like using a sugary solution (mix of water and soda pop) sprayed directly into the container before release, so as to temporarily glue their wings shut. Once again the actual results may vary or prove to be an Old Wives tale. And while you can minimize a mass exodus if you release them around the evening, chances are, you will need to release a few more containers by summer’s end.

There are numerous beneficial insects to include in the garden including White Flies in the air, Decollate Snails who eat Slugs and Beneficial Nematodes who guard the soil. A multi-pronged approach can prove to be the most effective as pestilence often appear in multiple types. Some great resources for beneficial insects and Integrated Pest Management are:

And, as always you can rest assured that not only are Hormex products safe for use around our insect friends they also create an environment that is lush and verdant for them to thrive in.

There are some 'not so good' insects in your garden that won't hurt your plants. Zika, Dengue, West Nile Virus are but only a few of the many reasons to monitor your garden for #mosquitoes. #gardeningtips http://www.virtualherbarium.org/gardenviews/mosquitoes.html

Don't be scared of the thought of a 'scarcity' of water. Now is a great time to start planning out and propagating, for a drought tolerant landscape for this summer.

Growing Plans

As winter is leaving and the days begin to get just a little bit longer, the constant Gardner is already experiencing a heightened anticipation of the coming of spring. And like preparing to go back to school, much of the excitement fizzles after the first two weeks of being thrust back into the actual hard work of it all, just as it can be with gardening. The studious Gardner, however, is already mapping out that new flower bed on the side of the house with a tape measure and using modern tools to his advantage by using sites like sunearthtools.com and findmyshadow.com to chart the sun’s path rather than creating a sundial to chart the sun’s path for the next year and severely limiting the chance that come August, that favored cluster of Hostas’ is getting eight hours of direct sunlight.

Prepping the soil is the foundation to a successful season. Oftentimes, in anticipation of a late frost, it’s okay to just wait to prep beds by simply leaving them covered with a thin layer of newspaper and cardboard topped with black plastic to trap heat and increase the bacteria levels in the soil. When it comes time to plant, simply clean of the plastic and store it away for next year. Place the cardboard into the composting bin and till all remaining newspaper into the soil for increased aeration. This is but one of many techniques that can be learned on garden.com while we wait for winter to end.

Selecting the plants that you want to see come fall. Of all the things a farmer must plan for, what they are going to grow for that season is the most important. The same can be said for the hobby Gardner. As with all hobbyists, your passion grows with your ability to grow your hobby. And season after season, the most reliable way to increase the plants best suited for your garden is to single out the genetics of your healthiest plants (those that you may want to see twenty of one day). So once again, the key is to plan ahead by getting a few of those expensive specimens that you may have been eyeing at the nursery, nurturing and feeding them for a few months and then taking numerous cuttings from the biggest and healthiest of them to clone those desired traits.

Employ the principles of French cuisine through ‘Mise en place’, essentially to have everything in place, as well as the permaculture principle that if you prepare everything properly and do 90% of the hard work in the beginning, then the remaining 10%, which is general maintenance, becomes a breeze. Happy gardening!
