LET'S TALK ABOUT THOSE PARKING LOT CEDARS... 
There are basically 3 ways to grow a cedar.
One way is to dig it bare root in the field in a ball in spring. The larger the cedar, the more important it is that it has a large root system to support itself, so it's not uncommon to find a large root ball with this type of cedar. To ensure they can be planted all season long, they are sometimes placed into pots to keep them upright, and to make them easier to handle.
Another way is to start it as a small cedar in a pot, and grow it from very young in progressively larger pots until it is a bigger plant with a dense complete root system. This 'container growing' means you have NO TRANSPLANT SHOCK, and with deep regular watering and feeding the first season it will grow and thrive.

At Grobe's... these are the only 2 ways we sell cedar.

The third way is to clear a field of old, field grown cedars and place THEM into plastic pots. As heavy root balls cost a lot to freight, the smaller this pot is, the cheaper it is for the seller. So, fewer roots go with the plant. Makes it easy to plant, and cheap to buy... but it is much harder on the cedar.
In fact, someone unsuspecting might believe it is a container grown plant. It isn't.

So what happens next?  No roots to collect water and then this...
Dead cedars
So...does Grobe's offer an inexpensive quality cedar?
We do - and they are now available this spring.
But not for long, because they soon will be gone.

GROBE'S HAS 'SUPERFOODS'
What are superfoods? They are fruit bearing plants where the fruit borne imparts tremendous nutritional punch. Whether it be elevated vitamin C, high concentrations of anti-oxidants, or other reputed healthy imparting properties... we have them.

Lingonberries
Cranberries
Black Chokeberry (Aronia)
Haskap Berries

Goji Berries
Seaberries (Sea Buckthorn)
Haskap Berries
HASKAP? WHAT'S A HASKAP?

Haskaps are members of the honeysuckle family that offer edible berries much like a blueberry. They are also known as honeyberries. They grow very easily in our climate to about 4'+ tall and wide. Their 'claim to fame' is their great hardiness, adaptability, and the fact that the berries provide 5 times the anti-oxidants of blueberries.
At Grobe's we offer for 2014 four varieties. Two are the very best from the University of Saskatchewan breeding program, and two are the very best pollinators available for them. They bear 'loads' of berries, usually starting within a year or two.
DO YOU NEED A POLLINATOR?
We believe you do - and so does the top researcher at the University of Saskatchewan where they were bred.
Read here more about this.

Lawn
Grobe's 6-Step Perfect Lawn Program
It's a complete year long fertilizer program for anyone to achieve professional results by doing it themselves. It is designed for a 3000 sq. ft. lawn area and NOW includes 6 applications of lawn fertilizer throughout the year. Unlike similar 'package' programs, it uses the latest granular slow-release fertilizer technology to deliver a balanced feeding including micronutrients and phosphorus to ensure strong growth. The primary nitrogen source is UMAXX stabilized nitrogen, which is eco-friendly as it the only fertilizer available to homeowners to include two inhibitors that limit nitrogen loss due to volatilization to the atmosphere as well as due to leaching to the groundwater. This exclusive slow-release 28-4-12 fertilizer with 1% iron and micronutrients feeds equally well regardless of weather or soil temperature, will deepen turf colour, and is entirely used up by the turf. It can be used in fall to dormant feed, and what isn't used by your turf will be retained in the soil over the winter for later use in early spring.

The summer fertilizer component of this program is a bio-based organic slow release 5-2-4 golf-course greens fertilizer that has 70% organic matter content and micronutrients including 2% iron that will improve drought and stress tolerance, stimulates soil microbiological activity, and will give controlled growth without additional summer mowing work for you. New also to this program, 4 independent 3-year University studies have shown that it aids in minimizing 6 common turfgrass diseases, and with over 34 BILLION BENEFICIAL BACTERIA in every bag, it will naturally aid in reducing your thatch too!
Total Cost if all components bought separately - 125.00

Need Help Controlling Lawn Grubs?

APPLY NEMATODES NOW!

Lawn grubs are the larval stages of June Beetle or Japanese Beetle, and while they enjoy turfgrass roots they can feed on other plant roots too.
Nematodes are microscopic roundworms that when applied properly to the lawn (soil temperature over 10 degrees Celsius, overcast conditions, watered in well) will seek out and infest damaging lawn grubs. Live organisms, they are safe around kids, pets and even earthworms and are at present the only available control for a grub pest in Ontario. They can be stored in your refrigerator for up to 60 days to permit you to get this job done when convenient. While best controlled in late summer or early fall, a spring application will help to reduce grub populations as well.

For the finest shaving experience you have ever had!

This exclusive line from the Cremo Company of California offers a full shaving experience unlike any other. We love it!
How is it different?
The Shaving Cream does not lather, but an almond sized amount will coat the face or legs with a light cream that will allow 'back stroke, against the grain' shaving without grabbing. It will be the closest shave ever experienced.  It is super slippery and concentrated, and a single tube lasts for months!
It containes no menthol and is ideal for even the most sensitive of skins... it's really THAT good!
The Face Wash cleans deeply and gently, rinses completely and has absolutely no scent. It's not a jarring 'scrub', but a face freshening cleanser.
The Face Moisturizer, once used for 2 weeks, will convert even the most 'un-moisturizer wearing' of men. It is non-greasy, readily absorbed, soothes the skin and also has absolutely no scent. You will see and feel a tremendous difference.

All products are individually available for less than $ 9.00 each.

Convert him to 'shaving in the shower' for an even better shaving experience.
Hot steam and water softens the beard for an even closer shave.. and no messy sink ring to clean!

WE ARE GOING TO MAKE IT EASY TO SWITCH TO THE SHOWER!

Purchase a Men's or Women's Cremo Shaving Kit
(6 oz. of Cream, 4 oz of Moisturizer, 4 oz of wash) for only
25.99
And receive a Shower Shaving Mirror FREE !
