Good Afternoon Great-Gardeners,

The last few weeks have been a little chaotic. My dad has been in and out of the hospital with what we first thought was a stroke. Thankfully though it turned out not to be one. The doctors have told us that they think it’s his blood pressure, but they are not 100% certain.  

Among all the craziness between work, home and hospital we did manage to take a day trip to Phipps Conservatory in Pittsburg Pennsylvania. It was a gorgeous day filled with beautiful flowers.  If you have never been there it is worth a trip, especially in the summer time.
It is time to start thinking about making a trip to Wilson’s for all of your gardening needs. We have had many shipments come in over the last week of trees, shrubs, perennials, foliage and herbs.

Our annual/veggie house is starting to fill up with gorgeous flowers and slowly, but surely the vegetables are being stocked.

As always, if you have any questions, comments or suggestions, hit reply. I would love to hear from you. Have a great-gardening day.

Do You Know Your Gardening Tools?
When it comes to gardening there are tools for everything in the book. The following are some along with their purposes. Discover if they are a must have for your garden!
A trowel can serve many purposes - cultivating the soil in a small area after it's been initially broken up; digging, planting or potting in situations in which a transplanter is too small. Can also be used like an oversized spoon to mix soil with additives like fertilizer or vermiculite.
Loosening your soil is what the hand cultivator is all about. It is used to aerate the soil and make it easier to remove weeds. Cultivators are great for preparing your soil before planting and tearing into those stubborn weeds.
ZenBori Soil Knife:
Functions as a scoop, knife , saw and weeding tool all in one. Depth markings on the stainless steel blade can be used to ensure bulbs are planted at just the right depth.

Works great for cutting roots, transplanting, and digging in the garden.
Joint Weeder: 
The blade's multiple cutting surface angles and unique shape work for removing weeds from the cracks of sidewalks, driveways, and other weed infested surfaces.
Long Handle Garden Hoe:
Are efficient tools for weeding, cultivating and breaking up hard soils. They are great in vegetable gardens for weeding in and around crops and flower beds where you might need that extra reach.
Collapsible Gardening Bag:
Ideal for collection of leaves, lawn clippings, weeds and more.
Bypass Pruners:
Also called hand pruners or secateurs, bypass pruners are a type of scissors for use on plants. They are strong enough to prune hard branches of trees and shrubs. A must have for any gardener.
