Nice to have them nearby!

On another subject, it looks like we are going to get rain for the next 5-6 days - sigh!! In any case, I'm going to play it by ear to decide whether or not I'm going to make it to the thinkGREEN event on Saturday. If the rain lets up I'll try to make it over there. If I do, I'll be wearing tomato red!
happy dance

I fear I am probably out for the event tomorrow. pale

I've been fighting a cold all week and finally went to the doc and I have an upper resp infection, ugh. stupid kids and their germs. 2 days of meds aren't helping me yet so being miraculously cured by tomorrow morning isn't looking good. I'm super bummed to miss it- I hope if any of you make it you manage to stay dry!

cheap starters

Post  WolfHeart on 5/1/2011, 1:14 pm

for those of you looking for starters the Garden Center on Reading road has 4" pots for $.99. I got a Big boy tomato start and a Hungarian Hot Very Happy. They didn't have any paste type tom's though so I am heading back to Marvin's this weekend. Shocked That is usually a bad thing because I end up buying more than I need. pale

Free to a good Cincinnati-area home! I have items that I will not be using after all this season, and rather than letting them go to waste or tossing them out, I wanted to offer them up to anyone in the area who might want them:

- 5-lb bag of Yukon Gold seed potatoes
- 5-lb bag of Superior seed potatoes
- 4 packages of Rainbow Inca Corn (Seeds for Change)
- 1 package of True Gold Sweet Corn (Seeds for Change)
- 1 package Russian Mammoth Sunflower seeds (Seeds for Change)
- 2 packages Sunflower Mix seeds (Seeds for Change)
- 2 packages Black Eggplant seeds (Seeds for Change)

Just send me a PM and let me know if you're interested! We can meet somewhere in the area for the handoff.

Cincy sale and questions about guano

Post  Glendale-gardener on 10/7/2011, 12:35 am

Kim mentioned on another topic that the zoo doo is ready so I thought I'd remind everyone or let you know that Delhi garden center is selling off everything at 20-80% off still. I went yesterday and got a ton of stuff at 75% off, I'm not even sure if I know what to do with all this stuff! They still have half the greenhouse filled with plants too, lots of tropicals and herbs.

Also, I got a few bags of blood meal for $2 each. I've only used this on my compost until now. Any other good uses? I also got dr earth bat guano and dehydrated poultry manure. Are these usable as compost types?

I would love to have some bat quano. It's one of the best compost I've heard.



There is a Delphi center on Cin-Dayton Rd.I'm going to have to check that out this weekend. Thank you for the heads up.



bloodmeal - I thought it was a slow release fertilizer. I've read ppl applying it but can't for the life of me remember on what plants.



Was there any fruit bushes/trees left at your location?

Not sure about this but I'm assuming the sale is only at the Springdale location because they are closing that location down and it's like a "moving sale"

I got the Bat Guano at 20% off, I plan to get more if they mark it down further because I've read that it's a good one. There were some fruit trees, I saw some plum and I think cherry, I didn't check all of them. Lots of small plants inside, I didn't look at them all, I had 35 minutes to myself before picking the kids up from school!

Any word on the status of Delhi Garden Center in Springdale? Are they completely gone now?

Hey folks glad you're finding all the ingredients you're looking for!

Just a FYi- Bloomington Wholesale/Worms Way is one of our largest distributors of retail products. They tend to focus more towards the smaller hydro shops and IGC's. Great group of people! We have had a good supply of coarse ore as of late and hopefully it will help folks get what they need at a reasonable cost.

We are also introducing to all of our distributors two new products this year. First will be Super Coarse Perlite- this will be competitive with Fox Farm Big and Chunky and HydroFarm's Super Coarse Perlite. Next will be a Super Coarse Vermiculite- supply is limited to an extent and will carry a heftier price but it will be the coarsest product available from our ore suppliers. Both products will have the same bags as everyone has seen from us. The only changes are the check boxes will be gone and the Vermiculite/Perlite label in the center of the bag will be yellow on all the premium products vs. the green for all of our general horticultural products. Hopefully this will help people identify the products they are looking for and give you all the options you need in our supply region.

Thanks your business and keep up the hard work!

Also I have since moved closer to work so maybe just maybe this year I'll have time to make an SFG with my family and be able to participate more than I have in the past. Although this is our busiest season and free time is hard to come by.

Oh I almost forgot about Worms Way! thanks PVP!

Darren- yes the Delhi in Springdale is gone Sad I'm bummed because it is 2 minutes form my house and the Liberty one seems like a million miles away It was the only place I know with the variety they have. If you dig checking out cool greenhouses, head down to Winton Hills in the spring. AJ Rahn and Funke's on Gray Rd are both awesome. Not sure when they open.

I tried to hit AJ Rahn this past weekend (they are open year round) but had my directions messed up in my head and didn't have the address handy to verify. Where is Funke's?

I did hit Dayton Hydroponics and stopped by Reading Seed & Feed. I enjoyed the former and can only hope the latter is a better stop once the season gets underway (though they did have a nice variety of compost).

I'll have to take a look at Worms Way.

Thanks!
Darren

Reading will definitely be better once the season is rolling, whereas this IS the season at hydro places like Dayton and Worms Way so they're the perfect winter shopping trip!

Funke's is on the right before you get to AJ Rahn if you are going North on Gray coming up from Winton. Small and family owned, I always find something cool there and AJ's has fantastic plants.

I know this thread is about finding ingredients but is anyone taking classes at the local ext offices or at the Civic Garden Center? March looks like a busy month for me. Lots of classes I'm interested in. I know I can learn everything online but there is something about a classroom that makes it "stick" with me.

Score on Vermiculite!

Post  Glendale-gardener on 1/10/2012, 2:43 pm

I just stopped in at Reading Feed and Garden and they have a crap ton of medium vermiculite at $15.99 for a 4 cu. ft. bag.

They don't have it out yet, just ask for it at the register and they'll have someone get it from the other bldg for you. They have a lot but I'd still get it soon if you need it. Once they put it in the main bldg, it will probably go faster. I only got one today because I had a stroller taking up all my cargo space but I'm going to go back later this week and get a couple more.

Wow, that's a heck of a price. Where was it located? Are you expanding your garden this year and need the extra for a new batch of MM?

I was thinking about picking up a small bag of medium for seeding but was going to stick with the recommendation for coarse in my MM.
