Issue 45: USA & Canada

Piecing it Together

Who doesn’t want to improve their gardening game? We asked some of our writers to share their top growing tips, and they delivered. The topics are varied, from Av Singh offering advice on putting garden beds to sleep in the fall to Anne Gibson explaining how to balance soil pH. A green thumb often isn’t enough when creating the perfect environment for your plants. Making informed decisions comes from experience and knowledge.

We are pleased to introduce Martin Osis and Xavi Kief; they will cover the magical world of mushrooms. In 2019, Paul Stamets opened the world’s eyes to the importance of the mushroom kingdom in his documentary film, Fantastic Fungi. There is so much to learn! The relationship between fungi, plants and our planet is undeniable. The healthiest soils are teaming with life. A better understanding of the symbiotic relationship between plants and fungi can make you a better grower. If you decide to grow them yourself and eat them, you will be a healthier person. A win, win.

Last but not least, another edition of The Great UK Hydro Store Survey was just completed for Garden Culture Magazine UK. If you would like to read about what is going on in the UK market from the perspective of progressive grow shops, please check it out online: GCMAG.co/2022

It is an ever-evolving world, but gardening is certainly here to stay!
