Sprout’s Giveaway: “Healthy Garden Healthy You”

Here at MasterGardening.com we can’t get enough of Dr. Earth’s Organic Fertilizers. They are a fantastic product. Most fertilizers only feed the plants but not the soil the plants are growing in. The founder of Dr. Earth, Milo Shammas says, “The nutrition your fruits and vegetables provide you is only as good as the nutrition you provide your soil.” All of Dr. Earth’s products contain Pro-Biotics which brings life to the soil. Dr. Earth conducts extensive research and formulates the perfect nutrient ratio based on specific plant’s needs. They use natural sources instead of chemicals to boost nutrients in the soil and plants. For example nitrogen is derived from fish meal and alfalfa meal while Potassium comes from kelp meal and cottonseed meal.

Beyond the Dr. Earth product line, Milo Shammas has written a fantastic book, “Healthy Garden Healthy You” which highlights 100 easy-to grow plants and their health benefits. “In reading Milo’s book (Dr. Earth) you will be treated to answers to every organic gardening question you could possibly ask. This book is the A to Z of organic gardening as it relates to you health and beyond,” states Bob Tanem, KSFO, America’s Happy Gardening.

Here is your chance to win a free copy of Milo Shammas book, instead of just 1 winner we will have 3!

Entering to win is easy- Just complete the following sentence by posting a comment below and you will automatically be entered into the random drawing. Then check our facebook page tomorrow morning (1/25/11) to see if you won! And don’t forget to check out all Dr. Earth’s great fertilizers at MastergGardening.com.

    I talk to my plants when I’m working with them doing anything. I talk to them as a tiny seed, and give them a place in the soil to unfold their secrets and begin to grow. I talk to them as tiny seedlings, encouraging them to grow strong and healthy. I sing to them as I work in the greenhouse and water them. I give them pep talks and blessings when it is time to become productive plants in the garden and yard. I apologize and thank them for their sacrifice if I have to take them out early for over crowding, disease or food. I try to always remember our energies are shared, and to give them kind words to grow by. Its what I’d want if I were a plant!

    Yes. Please enter me into the drawing. I would love to learn more tricks and tips for growing tomatoes, green beans, and other vegetables as I plan on having a green house that I can grow vegetables and herbs in. I also plan on having some fruit trees in the near future. This book sounds like it would be very informative for me.

    I talk to my plants; I tell them jokes and we sing songs together–at least, that’s what I tell my grandchildren. The sunflowers love to sing in harmony and the black-eyed Susans have a small, but sweet giggle.

    I talk to my plants to let them know I love them for all they bring to my life and for the life giving oxygen they provide. Beside that, it’s also scientifically proven plants that hear encouraging talk or have soothing music played to them absolutely respond in positive ways.

    I talk to my plants to let them know that the grandchildren are coming to play. They perk right up. The children love to play in the garden, hiding ,finding ..snakes,frogs bugs,butterflies. They enjoy deheading, rubbing their hand up the stack of a herb it , eating mint leaves. I’m always given a handful of freshly picked flowers along with the biggest smiles. I talk to my plant and thank them for the wonderful connection they have made with the next generation of gardeners.

    I talk to my plants but all they want to know is when the cows will be here. Seems there is a love/hate relationship with them. They love the warmth and goodies but are tired of carrying the bovines on their backs. Some beings are just never happy.

    I talk to my plants because I they have feelings too. They need to know they are loved and appreciated for all their hard work and what a better way then to praise them!

  44. January 25, 2011 at 9:25 am #

    You say this like it’s an odd thing! I talk to them to encourage them but most likely it’s just the hot air and CO2 that they like, but I prefer to think it’s the great compliments I bestow on them.

    I talk to my plants by the light of the moon
    I sing them sweet songs as the sun warms their blooms
    I soak up the love and the beauty they share
    knowing one day, I will rest in their care.
