Memorial Day Good Time to Plant

Hello Friends/Fellow Gardeners,

Memorial Day weekend is here. Be sure to stock up on SGG container garden kits and seeds. After a hectic day at work, what better way to wind down than to do some gardening? Besides, warmer and longer days make us want to be outdoors.

As you know, ease and convenience are key components of Sydney’s Green Garden products. After the initial work prepping for planting, container gardens are relatively maintenance free, with the exception of regular feeding and watering during dry spells.

Our seeds and kits are available online and at three Duluth locations: Mount Royal Market, Engwall’s Greenhouse in Hermantown, and at the Bookstore at Fitger’s. If you attended any of Scott’s vegetable container gardening workshops you can redeem your percent off coupon at the Bookstore at Fitger’s. Do consider taking a workshop next spring to get a percent off coupon, if you didn’t get to one this year.

After Memorial Day, Scott will plant the vegetable containers just outside of Midi Restaurant right here at Fitger’s – be sure to check it out if you shop or dine here. We’re just a short climb up the stairs from the Lakewalk if you’re out and about and have a few minutes to stop by.

As always, we welcome your questions and comments either here on the blog, or at: grow@sydneysgreengarden.com

Happy Memorial Day!

Your Friends at SGG

Container Garden Kits for Mother’s Day

Hi Sydney’s Green Garden Friends,
Container gardening kits make wonderful Mother’s Day gifts – one that keeps on giving over the years – she will only need to buy seeds and some planting soil in future years. The containers are designed to provide many years of planting pleasure! What better way to say, “I love you, Mom”, than to give her a container gardening kit?

Last week Scott gave two Whole Foods Coop workshops – one at 4th Street and the inaugural workshop at Denfeld. Turnout was great – everybody had fun and learned a lot about container vegetable gardening. Scott gave out vegetable seeds and planting guides to all participants.
Good news – Sydney’s Green Garden kits and seeds are now available online at this site, at Engwalls Florists & Greenhouse in Hermantown, Mount Royal Market, and of course at The Bookstore at Fitger’s.
The next few weeks will be busy for gardeners as they prep their gardens and containers – hopefully you can get outside and get your gardening started soon . . .
Until next time,
Happy Mother’s Day – and happy garden prepping!
SGG
