RainWise Contractor Fair Saturday Oct. 20th 1pm-3pm
Learn about applying for a rebate from Seattle Public Utilities and King County for up to 100 percent of the cost of your rain garden or cistern. This is an opportunity to meet a collection of RainWise contractors and learn what will work for you. No registration required.
And just like that the weather turns, and you can feel and smell the cool in the air.
At Urban Feed and Garden we celebrate the turn of the seasons by getting back in the garden! Cooler temperatures and gentle rains make fall an excellent time to plant. Fall established plants are stronger and more drought resistant the next summer. Seize the season...and the discount!
Compost and Fertilizer.
It takes a team
We get asked a lot about how to make garden beds happy and productive. So here's a quick primer on compost and fertilizers. Both are import and they serve different purposes. Compost feeds the soil. It helps to create the conditions in which plants thrive. It provides balanced moisture, good aeration, and a healthy microbial environment that allows plants access to nutrients. Fertilizers provide the specific nutrients that plants need. Whether you have acid loving blueberries, or deep feeding tomatoes having the right fertilizer is necessary for success.
Compost feeds the soil. Fertilizers feed the plants. Plants need both a healthy environment and healthy food. Just like us!
Go big or go home
We're ready for big. What about you?
We're getting bigger! Oh yeah!
We had so many plants last year we ran out of room! Imagine. We decided to push the fence line out so we can bring in more goodies. We'll be expanding our tree and shrub selection as well as our perennials. We are very excited. You will still be able to load up your car in the alley (the safest way to go) just no more parking back there, but ohhhhh, all the plants will be so good. We think, you will think, it's worth it! The fencing should be finished March 23, keep an eye on us!
Chickens are awesome.
Fun Chicken fact:
Food grade Diatomaceous earth added to your chicken's feed will keep away pests, and keep your hens healthy.
