Online membership garden club

In preparation for the holiday season, I am re-opening access to “Through the Garden Gate” for only 48-hours!!!

This is a makes a wonderful gift for yourself or the special person in your life who want to learn how to create, grow, and maintain a beautiful desert garden.

Here is what current members are saying:

“This is amazing! Getting into your group was a no-brainer. Seriously.

But it wasn’t a just because it was a brilliant (and easily affordable) idea… but rather because I had gotten so much VALUE from your free Facebook group that I wanted more from you. The paths you already laid from your group and your backlog of blog posts are so powerful. All of what you’ve done before has laid the groundwork for success here (as someone who builds these kinds of funnels and marketing for coaches, I have some strong opinions on these things). It’s impressive. And only the beginning. I’m excited to see where you’ll take it next.”Kara Jordon

“What an excellent resource for newbies to the low desert! So many books and materials on the internet aren’t *really* targeted to the low desert.

AZ Plant Lady’s “Through the Garden Gate” membership offers a truly affordable way to get access to targeted information and personal feedback unlike any other resource out there. I have learned more in a month about how to grow my desert garden than I ever could have on my own, and without spending a fortune.”Barbara Lee

Stop wasting your time and money making mistakes or assume that your landscaper has the expert knowledge to assist you.

  • The average homeowner waters their landscape too OFTEN and not deeply enough resulting in over-watered, shallow-rooted plants.
  • Flowering shrubs are excessively pruned to the detriment of their health, resulting in green, anonymous blobs dotting your landscape.
  • The majority of desert-adapted plants DON’T need fertilizer, yet many people spend time and money in unneeded fertilizing.
  • Sadly, most landscapers only specialize in “mow, blow, and go” and don’t know the proper way to maintain plants in the landscape or proper watering guidelines.
  • You can have a beautiful landscape filled with drought-resistant plants that need pruning 2X a year or less!!!

So, are you ready to join and learn the dirt on gardening in the desert

We’ve reached the final day of our garden gift lists and today, it’s all about kids.

Gifts with a garden theme aren’t just for adults; there is no better way to foster the curious spirit of children and lead them on a path of discovery about the natural world around them than the gift of a kid-sized kit with a garden theme. As a mom and grandma, I’ve enjoyed countless hours with young children as they learn about plants and insects. Here are some gift ideas for the young people in your life.

1. Root Viewer

Foster a love for vegetable gardening by showing kids what goes on beneath the soil. They plant a carrot, onion, and radish seeds and watch the roots develop at the same time that the leafy tops grow. Click here to learn more and purchase. 

2. Butterfly Garden

Join with your kids as you view the miracle of caterpillars transform into butterflies. All you need is inside this best-selling kit, except for the sugar water. I wrote about my experience of doing this with my kids. Needless to say, they loved it! Click here to order. 

3. Grow N’ Glow Terrarium

Terrariums are fun for both adults and kids alike, allowing them to view a self-contained world. I like that this kit has all you need to make your own while learning about plants and how they grow. My 6-year-old granddaughter, Lily, asked for this for Christmas. Click here to order. 

4. Mason Bee House

Imagine the delight of your kids when they see little mason bees making their home in this little bee house. Mason bees are important pollinators and don’t sting, making this a safe and fun gift. Click here to order. 

5. Little Diggers Garden Tool Set

Young children like to work alongside adults in the garden, so how about getting them their own set of kid-sized tools? Believe it or not, we bought this when my 32 and 23-year-old daughters were little, and they used them often. All of the tools lasted a long time. In fact, we still have the little shovel! Click here to order. 

The right garden gift for a child can foster a lifelong love of gardening, and you can be the one to begin them on this journey.

This concludes my Four Days of Garden Gifts. If you missed any of them, here they are – Day 1, Day 2, and Day 3.

 

I’m counting down the days until Christmas and am helping you whittle down your gift list with great ideas for the gardener in your life. Yesterday, we talked about shopping online for Plants (amaryllis, air plants, roses, and succulents) and today; it’s all about Garden Tools and Gear to help to make your time in the garden easier and more enjoyable. I’ve created a must-have list of colorful tools and garden totes, including a pair of gardening shoes that I hope find their way underneath my Christmas tree.

1. Slogger Garden Shoes 

I desperately need a pair of shoes that I can slip on whenever I step out into the garden that I can easily clean afterward. Slogger makes plastic clogs and boots with fun floral designs. These are at the top of my Christmas list, which is a good thing as I’ve been known to walk in the garden in my slippers. Click here to order your pair. 

2. TubTrug

I’m not afraid to admit that this unassuming plastic tub is in the top five of my most used garden tools. Tub trugs are flexible garden containers that can be used in some ways – as a planter, to collect plant clippings and debris, or to harvest fruit and vegetables.  There are probably other uses, but I use mine in the garden when I am deadheading my perennials and roses. They come in some pretty bright colors and multiple sizes. Click here to order.

3. Planter Inserts

In many cases, large to medium-sized planters don’t need to be  filled all the way with soil as plant roots don’t necessarily reach down that far. Planting mix is expensive and makes containers heavy, so planter inserts have come along and solved both of these problems. The inserts are placed inside of the pots, about two-thirds of the way down where they rest and potting mix is added on top of them. They come in a variety of sizes and are extremely useful. Click here to order yours.  

4. Felco Hand Pruners

A good pair of hand pruners is probably the most-used garden tool. From deadheading a favorite rose bush, to pruning small branches, they do it all. While there are a large number of different brands, some are better than others, and the very best are made by Felco. They cut cleanly and are comfortable to use. Also, their blades can be sharpened, making this a garden tool that will last you for years. I’ve used many different hand pruners and Felco the best. Click here to order. 

5. Ergonomic Hand Shovel

For those who do a lot of container planting or work in the vegetable garden, hand shovels are an indispensable tool for making shallow trenches and digging small holes. But, digging over time can be hard on your wrists, so I use one with a uniquely-shaped handle that puts less stress on my hands and wrists. It also comes in a lot of different colors as well. Click here to order. 

 

Gardening is more enjoyable when you are equipped with the proper tools, and the gardeners in your life will appreciate these items that will make their outdoor hobby easier.

Tomorrow, I am going to share my top five gardening books that are specific for Southwest gardens. So please stop by for another visit.
