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...
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.
Here's a picture of ours including the roots. We invite you to compare.

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 2012 three varieties. Two are the very best from the University of Saskatchewan breeding program, and the third is the very best pollinator 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.

|I Heard Your Radio Ad... What Is This New Lawn Program You Have?|
Grobe's 5-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 includes 5 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 golf-course fertilizer that can be applied at any temperature, and does not need to be watered in to work. It can even be applied safely to wet grass. It is safe for pets and kids, has an 85% organic matter content that will improve drought tolerance, contains 15 essential micronutrients including 4% non-staining iron for great turf colour and will give controlled growth without additional summer mowing work for you.

"Who is the Cider Keg?"
The Cider Keg is a family run business consisting of 100’s of acres of orchard and farm land in the heart of Norfolk County near Vittoria, Ontario. They cultivate and grow the finest quality Norfolk apples. These apples are harvested at their peak and travel from the orchards to their cider mill where they combine the perfect blend of apples to make cider through their own belt press. This then is finely filtered to produce the perfect quality naturally sweet apple cider - non-alcoholic and with no artificial sugars added. This cider is carbonated and bottled under pressure to seal in the perfect flavour and bouquet until you open a bottle to share with friends and family."
