Going Green (Thumb): Your Organic Solution to Handling Garden Pests

Posted & filed under Garden Center, Landscaping, Tips.

Have you been going green? In addition to your green thumb, you may also be looking into more natural, organic, environmentally friendly ways to manage your garden. When pests such as wasps, aphids, mealybugs, whiteflies, beetles other bugs invade, you’re likely looking for ways to keep them out. But finding a safe, non-toxic pesticide is not always easy. And, finding one that is effective can prove to be even more center

We all want to protect the environment, our families and our food. But many ‘natural’ insecticides aren’t always the most effective. That’s until you discover the wonders of Neem oil.  As your local garden center in Greensboro NC, we would like to discuss Neem oil and its many incredible benefits.

What is Neem Oil?

Neem oil is an all in one solution to many of the problems that southern gardeners may face. Neem oil is derived from seeds and fruit of the evergreen tree, Azadirachta Indica. It is most commonly used in organic agriculture but can be applied to all areas of the garden including roses, trees, shrubs, fruit,vegetables, even houseplants. And, it is effective. It has insecticidal, miticidal and fungicidal properties that work.

Neem oil is the insecticide every gardener and garden center could want. It can safely be used on food and leaves no dangerous residue in the soil. It effectively reduces and kills pests as well as prevents powdery mildew.

Is it Safe?

As a garden center, we love Neem oil. What makes Neem oil so great is, unlike chemical pesticides, it is harmless to humans, pets, birds and beneficial to insects such as bees and butterflies. This is especially important because of how necessary bees are to agriculture and our environment. Bees need all the help they can get! And, a natural insecticide s a great way to ensure their safety while keeping your garden pest free. After all, bees and butterflies are no pests!

Other Uses

Neem oil can also be used to treat fungal issues that are most prevalent in hot and humid climates, such as powdery mildew, black spot, anthracnose and rust.

And, these are just some of the reasons our garden center loves Neem oil! Try Neem oil for your garden and stop on by our garden center so we can answer any questions you have about it or about organic gardening in general.

We are a garden center in High Point NC, and we have a few expert tips to help you make the most out of this year’s growing season!

Spring Clean Up

Start by cleaning up leaves and debris that remain from the fall and winter months. Dead leaves and vegetation can cause pathogens, mold and rot that can harm your garden. While this rot is a natural function of the garden’s decomposition cycle, you should have it in your compost pile; not on your beautifully maintained garden.

March, April & May is for Mulching

Spreading mulch not only serves an aesthetic function, but also serves to protect your flower beds from the heat of summer. A layer of mulch also helps suppress weeds while retaining mulch and moderating the soil temperature. But, be careful not to over mulch, as this can cause rot and prevent healthy growth. Need mulching advice? Stop our garden center today!

Start Planting

The best time of year to plant perennial flowers and gardenias is in the early spring. Visit our garden center to learn more about what types of flowers, trees and shrubs thrive the best in our climate and environment.

Fall Landscaping Prep for New Deciduous Growth

Posted & filed under Landscaping.

The colors of the fall have erupted on our fair state. The temperatures are dropping and it is time to prepare for winter. Your landscaping likely needs a little bit of love before the freeze sets in. Our trees, which in the average lawn or on the common property tend towards being mature deciduous, need a little upkeep help from their human contemporaries. Some of these tasks you may wish to do on your own, some you may not wish to pursue but instead opt to hire a landscaping professional to help you prepare your planted wares for the winter. If you are indeed looking for winterization prep help or the acquisition of additional deciduous trees or shrubbery from a well-seasoned landscaping entity service in Colfax NC and other nearby towns, look no further than Edgefield Plant & Stone Center.

Raking Leaves

A deciduous tree is one that sheds its leaves every single year. There will be plenty of raking to do in their honor, but this is something many willingly accept as tradeoff in exchange for the brilliant colors emitted annually when the leaves begin to turn. The year’s leaves essentially are spent but that in no way means that you cannot add additional trees and shrubbery to your landscaping. In fact, deciduous trees thrive when planted newly in the fall. We at Edgefield Plant & Stone will only encourage your purchase of new plants for your landscaping. We can most certainly help you with the design or just the planting of new trees on your property. In addition to the movement of plants, we also like to provide sage advice that will help your trees live long and healthy lives, thriving in our climate through means of general upkeep and care. The following are just a few tips for the planting of deciduous trees this season:


Think of mulch as a blanket for the root systems of your trees and shrubbery. A blanket of mulch insulates those roots against the elements. When applying fresh mulch it is advisable to go with 2-4 inches of mulch against the base of the trunk of the plant in question. A task normally carried out in late November or early December, the mulch will work as a means of buffering it against temperature extremes. With stabilized temperatures you have yourself a healthier start to life.


The root network of any tree is of paramount importance with regard to its health. If you are planting in the fall, there may not be enough time for it to establish a hearty root system before winter is upon us. Be sure that the plant is placed in area where it will receive adequate sunlight and water access. Adding fertilizer is not a bad idea either.


Access to light is essential to the life of your tree. We are not talking merely of the branches and trunk, the ground that covers the root network is also in need of sunlight. You will need to rake and provide general maintenance of the area throughout the fall and winter. Photosynthesis, plants absorbing sunlight and converting it to nutrients. Sunlight translating lightly to food for trees, it is absolutely necessary that they are granted this access.


When your new trees are planted, you will need to water them. The winter may offer rain and snow but the intermittent nature of such precipitation may call for you to get out and water the plants. Be sure to provide them with an inch of water per week if they do not get such otherwise.
