"Let us tell you 'bout the birds and the bees, and the flowers and the trees..."
Birds and bees are some of nature's best garden helpers. They pollinate flowers, eat pests and serenade us with soft buzzing and singing. We'll be talking all about attracting new bird and bee buddies to your backyard!
Skagit Gardens, Skagit, WA
Lucia will be presenting some new bird and bee forage perennials for 2014!
James will be talking about the exciting and exotic world of orchids!
O'Toole's is greener than ever! In collaboration with ZLight USA LED, a Colorado-based LED lighting manufacturer, all three of our stores are getting rid of our old gas-bulb lights and upgrading to energy-efficient LEDs. This will reduce our lighting energy by up to 54%!
Representatives from ZLight USA LED will be on hand to answer questions about LED lighting (and give away some fantastic door prizes). We'd love your feedback on our bright and friendly new lights! Wear something green and get a special treat!

"To be a successful farmer one must first know the nature of the soil." ~ Oeconomicus
A healthy soil is the first step to healthy plants, and just before spring is the perfect time to see which nutrients you are lacking and, sometimes more importantly, which you have too much of.
RapiTest Soil Test Kit
One of the easiest ways to get to know your soil is by using a home test kit. They are super easy to use and, while not as accurate as lab tests, still give you a basic idea of what's in your soil. The Soil Test Kit from Rapitest allows you to test soil for pH, nitrogen, phosphorous, and potassium. It uses a simple three-step process: mix soil with water, pour liquid into comparator and add contents of capsule, then compare color instantly for test reading.
CSU Soil Analysis
For a more detailed soil analysis, you can send a soil sample to the CSU Soil Test Lab. Just pick up a collection jar at any one of our three locations for free. Then, fill up the jar according to the directions and answer the included questionnaire. Then just mail it off to the soil lab. You can include a check or CSU can bill you. A basic test is about $28. For more information, call the lab at (970) 491-5061
Our popular gardening classes, O'Toole's University, continue throughout March. And unlike other universities, O'Toole's U is absolutely free! There's still plenty of room, so sign up online or at any one of our three locations today!
