Planning Your Garden

/
“No occupation is so delightful to me as the culture of the earth, and no culture comparable to that of the garden”. ~ Thomas Jefferson From the historic flower displays at Jefferson’s Monticello to a patio herb garden, we can all enjoy the delights of nature in our own yards and gardens. Now is the perfect time to start planning this year's garden.

Attracting Butterflies to Your Garden

/
Why create a butterfly garden? Other than the obvious reason that butterflies are beautiful and their flight seems to bring a little magic everywhere they go. Butterflies are losing their natural habitat due to urbanization, deforestation and agriculture. You and your family can help by creating a butterfly sanctuary in your own backyard.

Diamonds for Your Soil

/
What is humic acid? And how is it like diamonds? Humic and fulvic acids are the decomposed by-products of dinosaur-era plants and animals. Millions of years of aging and compaction will eventually turn dinosaur-era waste into coal, diamonds and a layer of humic and fulvic acids. This acid layer is what interests us most for your garden. Humic acid can be harvested and ground into granules or dissolved into a liquid.
Dormant Spray

Dormant Spray, Part 1

/
Winter is nearly over. Here at Glover Nursery we are getting ready to begin our spring gardens. One of the best ways to prepare for spring is to use Dormant Spray on your garden. Dormant Spray is a generic term for sprays used on trees and shrubs during the fall or winter when plants are fully or partly dormant (resting).
