Fruitful Container Gardens Add Beauty and Flavor


Posted by admin | Posted in Garden Planters | Posted on 15-11-2014


Milwaukee, WI (PRWEB) May 28, 2014

Picture harvesting a few fresh strawberries for breakfast in the morning or perhaps picking a few apples from a backyard tree to cook up into a pie. Its possible to add fruit to the landscape even if you garden on a balcony or small lot, says gardening expert and author Melinda Myers. And even if theres plenty of space, gardeners are sure to appreciate the fun and convenience of reaching out the backdoor and harvesting some homegrown fruit. Myers suggests the following strategies to get the most out of growing fruit in containers.

Strawberries are excellent container plants. Grow everbearing or day neutral varieties, in order to harvest strawberries throughout the growing season. Reduce the workload and increase success with a self-watering hanging basket( Or dress things up a bit more with a decorative container. The haystack hanging baskets have the beauty of coco fiber lined planters, but require half the watering. The AquaSav liner is a combination of coir and recycled plastic designed to conserve moisture. This means better results with less watering.

Dont stop there. Add some dwarf fruit trees to patio plantings. A dwarf apple, peach or pear will provide beautiful spring flowers, nice foliage for the summer and fruit for gardeners and their families to enjoy. Select self-fertile varieties, those that only require one plant to produce fruit, if space is limited. Grow dwarf trees in large weather-proof pots with drainage. Those in cold climates will need to provide some winter protection, but the first harvest is sure to make that extra bit of work well worth the effort.

Try growing lemons, limes and other citrus in a container. The fragrant flowers and glossy green leaves are a beautiful prelude to the tasty fruit. Even cold weather gardeners can put their green thumb to the test by growing a Meyer lemon, Kaffir lime or other citrus in a container. Just be sure to move the potted plant indoors for the winter and back outdoors next season once the danger of frost has passed.

And dont forget the blueberries that are high in antioxidants and flavor. These nutritious beauties require moist well-drained acidic soil. Something most gardeners do not have. This makes growing them in containers where the soil can be controlled a great option. Blueberries provide seasonal interest with their nodding white bell-shaped flowers in spring, colorful fruit in summer and yellow, orange or red color in fall. Though only one plant is needed to bear fruit, gardeners will more than double their harvest if they grow two.

So get outdoors and survey the patio, deck, balcony or garden for space to add a container or two of fruiting plants that are sure to add beauty to the garden and flavor to meals this season.

satellite phones

If you are an extreme prepper, survivalist, or an adventure guru, then satellite phones are something that you must think about when it comes to your kit. Unlike regular cell phones, these phones don’t use cell service to get a phone call out. It uses satellites that are set in place. These phones can be used in areas where there is not a lick of cell service available. When you are in areas that don’t have communication it can cause a potential risk for your survival. That is where satellite phones come in. They simply send a signal to a satellite,which in turn sends it back to earth to a control center. From there the control center sends it to where it needs to go. This can be great during an emergency and you will feel good that you have a form of communication.  Satellite phones are a great addition to your emergency bag when you are packing for a survival bag.

Speak and Speech Nutrients Reviews

Nourish Life Speak and Speech Nutrients Reviews

Nourish Life SPEAK from Speech Nutrients, with ‘important nutrients needed for normal and healthy speech and coordination’, results from Mark Nottoli’s business endeavour. Interestingly, “Mark has a knack for product development and package design. He enjoys studying the latest developments in the world of nutrition, dialoguing with leading researchers and translating scientific developments into tangible, beneficial products.” Browsing the Speech Nutrients site led to Mark’s colleague Roy Bingham and Apraxia Research dot com.

As neither Nottoli nor Bingham are paediatricians it is puzzling to read that SPEAK (the name and the packaging seem to vary from site to site) is “pediatrician formulated”.

“Formulated and patented by a pediatrician and noted researcher, the speak™ formulation includes seven nutrients in servings and ratios determined to be most effective. SpeechNutrients speak™ contains concentrated, ultra-purified omega-3 in addition to efficacious amounts of two forms of vitamin E. Omega-3 supports a healthy inflammation response while working synergistically with the antioxidant vitamin E to reduce oxidative stress. Optimal amounts of both d-alpha and gamma tocopherols function as key antioxidants and operate with omega-3 fats to support neurological health and provide essential nutrition. Due to the theoretical blood thinning effects of omega-3 and vitamin E, vitamin K (a normal and healthy blood clotting nutrient) is also included. This precise combination of pharmaceutical grade ingredients is delivered in a convenient 2-capsule serving resulting in greater ease of use for parents and children.”
