If, like me, you don't really have a green thumb- never fear. Miracle-Gro has launched the The Gro Project. The Gro Project is going to help you, whether you are a beginner, professional or a self-proclaimed failure gardener (like me) by giving articles, videos and advice for common gardening products. The Gro Project can also help you find the right products that you will need to create the garden that you've been dreaming of.
Miracle-Gro wants people to know that gardening shouldn't have to be extremely difficult. By allowing people to share their gardening tips, projects and photos- the hope is that a community of gardeners will be created, making gardening fun for everyone!
For example, I visited the Miracle-Gro Facebook page and got the great idea for their Toyarium project. It's basically a plant garden in a fish bowl (or other glass container) with a few of your child's toys in it. Most of the items needed, may already be in your home.
Here's what you'll need:
• Fishbowl or other glass container
• Your favorite succulents and cactus
• Miracle-Gro® Moisture Control Potting Mix
• Plastic toys or figurines from your kid’s room
• A spoon
I know that I can get a glass container from the dollar store, so then all I'll need to get are the plants, Miracle-Gro® Moisture Control® Potting Mix and rocks. Easy, Peasy and I know that my daughter will love this! She's been asking to plant something for a while, but we don't have a yard or a space to grow an actual garden, so this is a great way to grow something indoors (that hopefully I won't kill)… you can't kill cacti, right?
What I'm really loving is the Miracle-Grow Pinterest page. Go check it out! There are videos, photos and ideas for lots of fun garden projects including:
- Creating a container garden
- Tips for planting a raised-bed garden
and my favorite one
- how to repot your plants
I have struggled with this for years. I know I should repot a plant, but it seems hard and I think I'll mess it up and therefore, I avoid it like the plague. Then, my plant dies, so…
I have dreams of being a great gardener. My mom and my grandmother excel at this task. Me? Not so much. But maybe, with the right tips, I can actually do it.
Check out the Miracle-Gro Gro Project for that extra nudge that you need to get started on your gardening too.
