Miracle Gro's The Gro Project: Simplifying gardening for a whole new class of gardeners.  Gardening can actually be fun and enjoyable!

I’ve been known to say once or twice that I’ve been dealt a black thumb {urban dictionary definition: A wannabe gardener who kills plants. Opposite of green thumb}.  That kinda sounds like me.  Sadly, my gardening prowess is far from A+.

Yet, with each Spring that rolls around, I feel the drive and excitement to keep trying in hopes to one day have a gorgeous garden + a bright green gleaming thumb.  At the moment, with each sprouting bud, a thought of accomplishment passes through with a little mental, pat-on-the-back.  I’m doing it!

As the warmer days approach, the time I have to devote to the garden is very little.  Thankfully I recently learned about Miracle-Gro’s The Gro Project which showcases fun garden projects that are easy, manageable, and that even a girl with a black thumb can tackle.  Yes, that’s me!

I know you’ve heard of Miracle-Gro since they are the leaders in lawn care and landscaping products.  They have been working hard to simplify gardening (they must have heard my woes) for a whole new class of gardeners to show that  it doesn’t have to be complicated and take a huge amount of time.  Gardening = fun and enjoyable?  YES!

To celebrate the movement of The Gro Project, I’m throwing a backyard BBQ.  Who doesn’t love a par-tay!  But before the big day, I have some prep work.  I’ve been working hard on getting the garden, patio, porch, and deck ready for Summer.  And of course, the outdoor spaces involve plenty of new DIY and gardening projects.

Take a look at a few of the projects that I’m in the midst of…Miracle Gro's The Gro Project: Simplifying gardening for a whole new class of gardeners.  Gardening can actually be fun and enjoyable!

Other details for the fun backyard BBQ party will include pillows, lights, accessories, and of course good food and drinks!  I want to create an inviting, serene, and relaxing outdoor oasis. Like this one that I adore…

As I’m finishing up the details and putting the final touches on the party which will be in a few weeks (a few projects still need to be worked on), I encourage you to head over and learn more about The Gro Project.  It’s a great place to ask questions and share gardening successes (and fails).

In the meantime, if you are hitting up your local gardening center to start or continue your gardening and planting endevours, check out some of the great planting and feeding products by Miracle-Gro.  And remember there is a difference between Garden Soil and Potting Soil.  Confession – I always used to use just one for pots and the garden.  I learned that that’s a No-No!  There are different nutrients and fertilizers in each kind  depending on if the flower / plant is going into the ground or in a pot.  To continue long lasting flowers throughout the Spring and Summer season, try out the LiquaFeed All Purpose Plant Food Advance Starter Kit or the Shake n’ Feed All Purpose Plant FoodYou won’t go wrong!

Lastly, the Miracle-Gro Pinterest Page is an awesome resource with links to many articles and projects.

I gotta run to continue my outdoor projects and gardening…

Do you have a green thumb?  (or a black one like me)? What magic trick do you have or use to get beautiful flowers?  What is your favorite flower to plant? How do you keep your flowers lasting all Spring and Summer? OR do you find gardening too complicated and time consuming?

    It looks like there are some fun project ideas. I love getting things ready in my yard but struggle as it warms up. Maybe ideas like this would help me stay motivated.
