Fall Gardening Inspiration

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Miracle-Gro for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.


When we bought our house, one of the things I was most excited about was the almost 2 acres of empty land just waiting for me to do something with it!  Ever since my first visit to Rosedown plantation, I've dreamed about planting a huge garden that wanders over the entire back of our property with gazebos and fountains and a gorgeous brick path winding through it.


Unfortunately, I haven't got a green thumb…or a green anything for that matter.  It's amazing really.  All the other women in my family could grow a rose bush in a block of cement, and here I am trying to grow one measly little row of cucumbers, and it is an epic fail!



Then, I discovered the Gardenieres! The Gardeniers are hand-picked green thumbs led by master gardener, William Moss. They’re real-life gardening enthusiasts with real-world experience when it comes to growing, anything. The Gardenieres will be covering the country, inspiring us all to get out and garden, facing unique growing challenges and meeting you online, in social networks and, occasionally, right in our own neighborhoods. All to make this the most remarkable, most conversational and most enjoyable growing season ever.



I was instantly excited by the West Coast Gardenier, Teena Spindler's video on planting bulbs.  I love the tips she gives on how to place the bulbs, and enjoying your garden while waiting for the bulbs to bloom.  She definitely inspired me to give my gardening dreams another try & Find beauty in the Fall!


A couple of products I would like to try to ensure that my next gardening attempt is more successful are:


•  Miracle-Gro® Garden Soil for Flowers & Vegetables

    I’m like Kelley and have a brown thumb too, lol. I even killed a cactus once, how do you kill a cactus? I will have to watch more of these videos and see what I can learn. My main thing is I forget to water my plants… :/

    Same here – no green thumb for me! I tried an herb garden this year, but it attracted bugs – and then the bugs attracted BIRDS and before I knew it, none of the plants had leaves anymore. 😛 Thanks for the tips!

    You sound JUST like me!! I could kill a silk plant. I got these GORGEOUS lil mums to do that mums in a pumpkin post. I was going to make a tutorial out of it. I’ve been trying desperately for the last two weeks to just bring them back to life!! I need E.T., can someone get me E.T.?? LOL
