Getting My Garden Ready!

Tuesday, March 23, 2010

DH and I went to Home Depot for several items and one in particular had me all excited!! They are selling Seed Blankets; buy one get one free!

What is this you ask?? It is a package with two mats that look like astro turf but has various flowering seeds in them that are supposed to attract Butterflies and Hummingbirds when they spring up. The instructions are easy enough but the hard part was done today as I had to clear the 10' area of all grass, weeds, rocks and other debris! It took DH and I two hours to clear the area in our backyard and I am really feeling it now!!

We are taking our time getting the seed blankets down because I don't want any weeds messing up the process! We will go to Home Depot again tomorrow to get some Peat Moss which is what is suggested to put down before laying the mats.

I will let y'all know if I have success in growing the flowers. Has anyone else tried these seeds blankets?? I would love some feedback!

    I can't wait until I can have a garden of my own!! I live in an apartment complex & we can't alter the grounds at all :( boooo! Just another reason why owning your own home is the way to go. Have fun with your seed blankets!!!

    I haven't tried them but have thought about it...isn't it wonderful to be planting and getting our yards ready? We still have a little ways to go before we can start getting down to the nitty gritty but I'm waiting with bated breath. It's kind of like Christmas morning with me! LOL! Anyways, have fun! It sounds delightful!

    Wow, I have to go to Home Depot! I have not seen those in several years. We had some luck with them but as I said it has been a while! I love spring!
