Plant a Flower Day: Easy Flowers to Grow

March 12 is Plant a Flower Day — and just in time! It’s still a little early, but you can see a lot of little flowers sprouting already! But even if you’re in a part of the country where the ground is too cold for planting, you can start your planting indoors. Either way, we put together a list of easy flowers to grow in the spirit of Plant a Flower Day.Nigella flower

Nigella Nigella flowers are also known as Love in a Mist, which, you will see when they bloom, is an appropriate title. They’re cute little blue flowers framed by whispy fronds similar to fennel. They’re also hardy plants, so they will be around quite a while after you plant them. Their flowering time is relatively short, but when they’re not blooming they have great seed pods that are great filler for dried flower arrangements.Coltivazione di girasoli in un campo umbro

Sunflowers Sunflowers One of the most impressive flowers to grow from seeds is the the sunflower. They’re generally drought tolerant but require a lot of direct sunlight. They also grow to be quite tall — some can reach heights of 16 feet — so they’ll need plenty of space when they’re transferred to their outdoor home.Ehrenpreis / Veronica

Veronica Veronica Veronica seeds love sunny spots and can grow well in many types of soil. They bloom all summer long making them a favorite for birds, bees and butterflies! The average germination time is two to four weeks, so right now is a good time to start those inside. By the time it’s shorts weather, you’ll have beautiful blue blossoms in your garden.Natural Sweet Pea

Sweet Pea Sweet Peas Sweet peas are great because they germinate fast and they bloom early so you can get a little instant gratification in your garden as soon as the sun starts shining. They grow best in cooler temperatures, so you want to start them as early as possible before they shy away from the heat of the summer. They also need a trellis to climb.Gaillardia or blanket flowers and wasp visit flowers to obtain nectar

Blanket Flowers Blanket Flower Blanket flowers have a faint resemblance to daisies — they can add sweetness to any garden. They’re native to Mexico which means they like loose, sandy soil and, after a moist germination period, they like a dry, hot, sunny climate which means they’re drought-tolerant. They also bloom all summer long so you’re guaranteed constant color in your garden.Columbine flowerColumbine Columbine Columbine are easy to grow, but they’re not made for every climate. They thrive in cooler environments with a lot of sunlight — which is probably why it’s Colorado’s state flower. They can grow in warmer climates, but it’s best to plant them in spots with a little bit of shade so they don’t get too hot.

Upcycled Garden: Ideas to Get You Excited to Dig

container-gardenSpring is almost here and that means it’s almost time to start digging in your garden! Gardening is an uber-hobby. That means it can combine elements of other hobbies: art, DIY, decor, cooking, and upcycling. While we know lots of ways to make our lives easier and less expensive by upcycling and repurposing unwanted items, upcycling in the garden makes your yard one-of-a-kind. Here are 5 garden upcycling ideas to get you excited to dig.

Dangling Delight Bring your garden up to eye-level with hanging container gardens! An old birdcage or a hat that’s too pretty to pitch in the garbage can be hung with a simple hook to suspend draping flowers like geraniums or fuchsia. On your porch or deck it gives your outdoor decor a little color and a lot of character. While hanging plants look great, you may want to keep your watering can at the ready — they tend to dry out a bit quicker than plants in regular containers because they’re more exposed to air.

terrariumTerrarium Training Curating a terrarium is a good starter container garden. Glass containers are easy to come by to create cute terrariums if you’re not quite ready to build a full container garden. Indoors or outdoors, old vases, pickle jars or pitchers can hold the layers of charcoal, sand and soil as a base for tiny trees, ferns and grass. Terrariums require minimal maintenance, it’s just a matter or trimming and watering to keep them green.

Tried & True Tomatoes The container garden-friendly tomato makes a practical plant for the decorative garden. They work best in larger containers — hanging from an old bucket or watering can, they can draw eyes up rather than to the ground to keep your outdoor decor lively and interesting. Just remember tomato plants require soil with a lot of nutrients to make your tomatoes flavorful and juicy. They also need full sun for a majority of the day, so a hanging container that you can move with the sun is an excellent way to add fresh ingredients to your summer salads.

Flower Flow Flowers can dress up just about any kind of container — even an ugly old shoe! Take inventory of the containers that are still useful but might be too worn to be used for their aesthetic value. An old suitcase that might be too heavy to travel with, an old desk drawer (or an old desk!), or a child’s wagon can be quite beautiful with the right flowers flowing from their openings. Look for colorful flowers that tend to sprawl like calibrachoa to bring your old but cherished items back to life with elegant overgrowth.

herb-gardenSimple Seasonings Herb gardens are probably the easiest gardens to build using repurposed items around the house. They can be big displays using wooden pallets or they can be small enough to fit inside your kitchen. They’re good for small containers because their roots don’t spread the way the roots for tomato plants or carrots do. Use mason jars, tea tins, mismatched coffee cups, or coffee cans. With a good combination of potting soil, compost, and sand (or perlite) and your herbs should thrive indoors. For an outdoor herb garden, think a little bigger. You can use wooden wine boxes carefully stacked at different angles to create a small vertical herb garden or you can use an over-the-door organizers to cover a blank wall and give it a little color and a lot of life!

LTD Commodities has hundreds of items to get your home ready for spring — indoors and outdoors! Whether you’re curating and indoor container garden for your kitchen window or you’re dressing up your walkway, look to LTD for a happy garden!

6 Trees to Plant in Your Garden

White-Beam

Whitebeam

When we start planning our gardens, our brains take us to all the flowers that decorate our yards and vegetables that fill out our summer menus. The one thing we sometimes overlook are trees to add a little more color and shade for your backyard oasis. Here are 6 trees to plant in your garden.

Whitebeam Whitebeams grow to be about 40 feet tall and are decorated with white blossoms and bright red berries. Not only are whitebeams beautiful, but they work well in gardens because they are very adaptable and can tolerate heat and wind and different types of soil.

Adirondack Crabapple Crabapple trees add a splash of color to any yard or garden, but the Adirondack crabapple is lovely for gardens because they only grow to be about 18 feet high. The delicate white flowers make it a jewel in anyone’s garden crown, but it’s also a very practical tree as it is disease resistant and drought tolerant.

Weeping Birch The weeping birch doesn’t have colorful fruit or blossoms, but its loose, limp branches bring character to a yard. They only reach heights of about 15 feet, so you can almost predict how much shade you’ll get where you plant you weeping birch. The weeping birch needs a lot of sunshine and does well in acid soils.

Judas-Tree

Judas Tree

Judas Tree If there were a tree to illustrate love, it would be the Judas Tree. They’re small with a maximum height of 40 feet so it does well by the garden, but they also decorate the garden with its bright pink blossoms shaped like hearts. To keep Judas Trees lovable, plant them in well-drained soil with full sun or partial shade. One bonus for the Judas Tree is that it’s generally pest-free.

Carolina Silverbell Silverbells are a little bit bigger — they grow to be about 33 feet tall, but the height doesn’t dwarf the impact of their blossoms for which they are named. The tender petals of the white flowers face down like bells. What makes them great for a yard or garden is they are pest-resistant. To keep Carolina silverbells happy, plant them in moist, well-drained acid soil and full sun.

Japanese-Maple

Japanese Maple

Japanese Maple The Japanese maple is popular for gardens because they only grow to be about six feet high, but they are also unique looking. The leaves aren’t like regular maple trees — they’re wispy and almost feather-like. Some varieties produce green leaves but others can have deep-red leaves even in the summer. To keep them thriving, plant Japanese maples in a spot with full sun and sandy, well-drained soil.

It’s time to bloom! There are so many plants and accessories to add to your garden — it’s hard to put a limit on your ideas! But LTD Commodities can help you put your gardening ideas into action.

5 Vegetables You Can Regrow in Your Garden

Our garden planning is coming along nicely, but, with the spring snowfall, we won’t be able to start planting for another month or so. But that time gives us an opportunity to explore all of our planting options. We’re trying to stick to a budget, so what we’re looking at this week are vegetables we can grow from our kitchen scraps — and there are a lot! Here are 5 vegetables you can regrow in your garden.garlic

Garlic You need it for everything! In your salads, pizza, pasta, sauce — just about every type of culinary challenge requires garlic. Planting a clove or two is a sensible money-saving project. Garlic can be planted in the fall or spring, but if you’re planting in the spring, put it in the ground as soon as the soil is warm and soft enough to be worked. They’re easy to plant — one clove produces a bulb and each clove should be planted about 2” down with plenty of organic matter mixed in with the soil. The only thing you need to be really careful of is drainage — too much water will cause rot.

onionsOnions Just like garlic, you can never have too many onions — and they taste so much sweeter when they’re free! They’re pretty easy to grow — when you’ve cut up an onion, save the root part that you usually toss. It should be a little bit dry (calloused) before you plant it. When it’s ready, bury it in a sunny spot in your garden under an inch or two of soil and let it sprout.

potatoesPotatoes Potatoes are a staple in just about any culture. It’s a hardy vegetable that is eaten year-round, so you’ll be doing your meals and your wallet a favor by planting a few in your garden. When you see a potato sprouting eyes, it’s ready to grow. Cut the potato up and let it dry out for a day or two (like onions) before you put it in the ground. Holes should be about 6” deep and the pieces of potatoes should be planted with the eyes (sprouts) facing up. They love lots of sun and require a good amount of water to produce healthy spuds.

romaineRomaine When we eat in the summer, we eat salad alongside our grilled meats — and growing the lettuce in the backyard is a great way to cut costs at the grocery store! Romaine is not only easy to re-grow, but it’s also the most nutritious type of lettuce. Saving your stumps is a win-win-win!  To get it going, let the stump soak in about a half-inch of water that you should change frequently (every 1 to 2 days). Put it in a sunny spot and in just a few days you’ll start seeing growth. You can keep growing it just like this, but it’s better grown in soil and you can transplant it in your garden after a week.

vertical-planterBasil Right now is the perfect time to start basil cuttings indoors to transplant in your garden. When you have your package of basil, make sure there are leaf nodes (they look like branches will sprout from them). With kitchen shears, cut just below the node and remove any leaves from the bottom two inches. Stick this in a clear glass of water and put it in a sunny window. Make sure to change the water every other day and it should be ready to plant in soil in about four weeks.

At LTD, we’re all about saving you money. From ideas for growing a great garden on a budget to brightening your home with products at discount prices, shop LTD for all your home improvement essentials.

Guide to Upcycling Wooden Pallets

Wooden-PalletWooden pallets: they’re everywhere, they’re free (or almost free) and they’re versatile. Inside and outside they can be converted into inspiring and functional pieces of furniture. Here is a brief guide to upcycling wooden pallets .

Before You Get Started Wooden pallets are used for shipping; they keep items secure during long distance transit as well as in warehouses when goods are being moved by forklifts. They’re very sturdy but discarded fairly quickly after use – making them the perfect material for upcycling. But, because they’re cheap, discarded materials, working with them comes with pitfalls.

Selection Because they’ve traveled across the country and maybe an ocean or two, pallets have likely been exposed to chemicals and bacteria. When you’re choosing palates from a pile, use your instincts. Don’t take anything home that looks or smells terrible – it’s probably not safe. Try to stick with the clean ones and look for stamps and markings to tell you if it’s safe to use.

Preparation Scrub down the pallets with a strong disinfectant and soapy water to get rid of any bacteria lurking in the wood. Rinse it well. Bacteria grow in moist spots, so make sure it’s completely dry before starting your project.

Dismantle They can be tough to take apart, but if you’re willing to work with shorter pieces of wood, you can saw off the joints connected by nails and avoid the hassle of nail removal.

Wooden-PalletOutside Projects

Patio Furniture Pallets are sturdy enough to stand up to most of the elements which make them ideal for patio furniture. There’s no limit on the size of outdoor seating. It can be as small as a single-seat bench or big enough to accommodate five people. Construction is minimal and requires few tools. The most thought you’ll put into it is for the color of the cushions to finish off the furniture.

Gardens Pallets are a practical material for getting creative with gardens. If you just want a simple raised bed, it only takes about three pallets to put one together. With even less work and fewer pallets, you can turn a wall into garden; all you need is your garden supplies and finishing materials (landscape fabric, staple gun, staples, and sand paper) for the pallet.

Inside Projects

Beds If you’re familiar and comfortable with platform beds, wooden pallets can be collected and fitted to make a bed in just about any size and shape you need. A drill and brackets are about as complicated as the accessories get to put together a durable bed frame.

Shelves Wooden pallets as shelves give a living room or bedroom a rustic quality when the texture is left untouched. But pallet wood is, generally, good quality – some are made with cherry wood or maple – so when the wood is sanded and finished, the product can be elegant.

Wooden-PalletTables Pallets can be transformed into tables of different sizes – an end table, a coffee table and even a dining room table. Because you’re making it yourself, you can tailor the table for your needs – add compartments or drawers to make magazine storage or shelves to put books.

If you’ve never thought about upcycling pallets before, you will now. Even the least crafty people can turn out an original furniture design with the wooden pallet.  As your ideas about what you can make with them start to develop in your head, you’ll start noticing how easy they are to find and once you get started, you’ll find they’re easy to work with, too.
