From the garden of Beth DiGioia, Resident Gardener

Here are a few of my September gardening favorites!

Appliance Epoxy

The new spray paint on the market can cover just about anything that needs a face lift.  I especially like appliance epoxy which hardens into a moisture resistant coating and lends just the right amount of shine.

Hose End Sprayer

This is hands down the best hose end sprayer I’ve ever tried.  The handy lever controls the spray so you can water delicate seedlings or blast dirt from pavers.

Super Thrive

Super Thrive is a vitamin pill for your plants.  This small bottle goes a long way because you only add ¼ teaspoon to a gallon of water.  And it’s super versatile; reach for it when you fertilize indoor plants, pre-germinate seeds, soak bare root plants, or when you’re tending to a sick plant.

Diggin’ It (507 N. Tennessee) is the place to go for hip Mexican metal garden art, bottle trees, rain chains, bird baths and wind chimes you won’t find anywhere else.  And Owner Tracey Collins is a delight to chat with.

Blue Label Herbs

Grown in Wylie, Blue Label Herbs offer a large assortment of herbs and they are guaranteed organic (they even ship the organic herbs in separate trucks).  The quality is always consistently good.

Southern Herb Growing

If you are into herbs, then you know that Madalene Hill was a legend in her own time.  Known as the “Grand Dame of Herbs in the South” she was a pioneer who contributed to the world of herbs in so many ways.  This isn’t a new book (1987), but it’s one that I reach for often.

The Blue Label Herbs and garden art are available for purchase at Diggin’ It.

FYI: Diggin’ It recently celebrated its seven year anniversary in this converted Greyhound bus station.
