International Sunflower Guerrilla Gardening Day 2011

International Sunflower Guerrilla Gardening Day will be on May 1, 2011. I just found this  out on a blog I visited and I will participate.  For those of you who don’t know what guerrilla gardening is,  ‘It is for anyone interested in the war against neglect and scarcity of public space as a place to grow things, be they beautiful or tasty’. You can find more information on I have tons of sunflower seeds and plan to go around town planting them in places that have just dirt in hopes of beautifying  more of Santa Fe. I think sunflowers are perfect for here as we don’t get a lot of  rain. Join the ranks and plant some sunflower seeds on Sunday May 1, where ever you live!

    Do you have a favorite mycorrizial fungi product?
    Do you have a recommended merchant to buy this from in Santa Fe?

    Thanks Jannine. You presented to our Master Gardener class recently & I enjoyed your talk immensely.



    • Yes- I just saw that Santa Fe Greenhouse has some Mycorizzial products. I bought ‘BUSHDOCTOR MICROBE BREW’ from them and will try it this year. It is a liquid. It says on the directions to use 2 tsp/gal of water every 2 weeks. I think a bottle would last the whole gardening season. I can’t remember what it cost (I bought it a month ago), but didn’t seem like it was exorbitant. I use to have to order myco on the internet so I’m anxious to see how it works. The Microbe Brew also has a bunch of soil bacteria and microbes in it besides the Mycorizzial so that will be good for the soil and plants as well. All these things help the plants fight off diseases. Thanks for checking in and feel free to ask questions and share your experiences as well! We all learn from each other!
