Gardening quotesApril days are upon us. Those long spring days spent outside in our gardens are ahead of us. The temperatures are warming up and we start to see more and more buds and blooms. Now is the time when our garden to-do lists seem never-ending…and we couldn’t be more thrilled!

There are no days in the whole round year more delicious than those which often come to us in the latter half of April... The sun trembles in his own soft rays... The grass in the meadow seems all to have grown green since yesterday... though there is warmth enough for a sense of luxury, there is coolness enough for exertion.

Gardening It's All in the Family

Creative Gardening Pairings from Monrovia

March means that spring is almost here - the first official day of spring is Sunday, March 20th. We are springing forward, days are getting longer, and plants are starting to sprout up from the ground. We are even enjoying some early spring blooms like Helleborus and pansies. It’s time to get busy and start prepping your garden for the growing season. We’ve got some tips and tricks to share with you. 

Add these tasks to your March gardening “To-Do List”: 

Prepare Your Trees

Prepare Your Trees

Early March is the time to prune peach, plum, cherry, and apricot trees. If you hadn’t pruned your apple trees and any other shade or fruit tree back in February, prune them now as well. Apply dormant spray to fruit trees, shade trees, and shrubs to help control insects such as aphids, scale, and mites that will be coming back in the spring. 

 

Prepare Your Garden Soil & Beds

Prepare Your Garden Soil & Beds

It’s time to shake off the winter vibes and remove the winter layer of mulch from around perennials and roses. Rake out debris from your flower and shrub beds. If you are planning on moving your shrubs, do it now before they start to bud. 

Once the soil has dried out enough, nutrient-rich compost can be added to flower beds. Don’t work the soil if it’s too wet because it causes compaction. 

Check the consistency of your soil - it should crumble when squeezed in your palm and then be released. Apply fertilizer to your shrubs and perennials. Some shrubs may also need an application of iron in March.

Prepare Your Flowers

Prepare Your Flowers

It will feel as if they’ve just arrived but make sure that spring-flowering shrubs like forsythia and lilac are pruned as the blooms start to fade. Also, prune your rose bushes as the leaf buds start to swell. Summer flowering shrubs like potentilla and many spireas can be pruned at the end of March or early April. 

Start begonias, dahlias, and other tubers indoors for earlier blooms. For more on starting bulbs indoors, check out How to Start Seeding Indoors

Prepare Your Garden Tools & Equipments 

Prepare Your Garden Tools

It’s time to break out your equipment and make sure your garden tools are still working and in good shape. Service your power equipment and sharpen your lawnmower blades. Now is also a good time to organize your tool sheds and storage areas so that come gardening time you won’t waste any time finding what you need. 

If short days, spent mostly inside have given you the winter blues, we are almost there! Getting back out in the garden has numerous benefits for our mental and physical health. Take care of these gardening items in March and springtime will be here before you know it. If you’re a newbie ready to start a garden, the expert gardeners at Glover Nursery are so happy to help.

5 Things to do While Waiting for Spring

The Very Real Benefits of Gardening Therapy

As a family business that has been part of the Salt Lake valley for over 130 years, one of the things we are constantly evaluating is what we can do to help our community. We want to be able to provide you with helpful, relevant, and insightful knowledge having to do with all aspects of gardening. We are all working very hard to be safe and stay healthy during this unprecedented time as we all adjust and grow with this "new normal".

As gardeners, one thing we keep coming back to to stay grounded during this time, is the very real therapeutic benefit of gardening.

Garden Therapy

The phrase “Garden Therapy” is one that’s been used for decades for a variety of reasons. Often it was a bit tongue-in-cheek when we bought a few more perennials than we told our spouse we would. However, these past few years has brought the THERAPY of gardening to the forefront of our minds. We know from experience the benefits of garden therapy.

There are untold benefits from gardening for our mental health. From digging in the dirt, caring for plants, watching them grow, harvesting our own food or maybe even creating beautiful bouquets to enjoy around the house.

Entire programs have been built around the physical and psychological benefits of working in a garden. There are some truly interesting studies being done in the field of horticultural therapy. This article from Psychology today hits the nail on the head.

Though we are not trained therapists, we are trained gardening experts. Within the overall theme of “gardening therapy” are dozens upon dozens of reasons that we’ve found create a sense of peace and wellbeing.

We did a poll recently in our Glover Gardening Group on Facebook to see what people found to be the most beneficial aspects of gardening. Here are the top 4 answers from you our gardening community.

1. Gardening is Your Personal OasisGardening with family

Be it English style or traditional Japanese Zen, your garden reflects your own tastes and preferences. Whether you grow at home or in a community garden, your garden is your own. This makes it much more enjoyable to spend time outside in the yard. If you’re new to gardening, we highly recommend working with a landscape designer to give some expert guidance and avoid costly mistakes. Garden design is personal but a landscape architect will work with you to create your dream landscape.

2. Gardening Is Beautiful

From early spring blooms like Crocus or Pansies to late fall blooms like Coneflower or Mums, there is something that will bring color and texture to your garden all season long. Flowers bring a sense of joy with their blossoming. There are other benefits to be had as well – tinctures, cooking, aromatic satchels, or just a bright bouquet on the dining table.

3. Gardening Allows You to Grow Your Own Food

During a regular year it is nice to pick your own tomato or gift a neighbor with some of the extra zucchini you’ve grown by hand. But during times like this, there is something deeply comforting in growing your own veggies, herbs and fruits.

It’s a fun experience, but also a deeply satisfying one. When your first harvest is ready and you get to enjoy the fruits of your labor (pun intended) you will not regret the time spent in your garden.  Check this link to see what veggies and herbs are available and ready to plant now at Glover Nursery.

4. Gardening is a Good Workout

With everything going on the gym may not be a viable option for many people right now so as we wait for things to normalize, there is always exercise in the garden. Being in the garden, digging, pulling weeds, and planting all are great forms of exercise. You'll be working different muscle groups and burning some calories. No, it’s not the same as a Crossfit session, but it’s better than nothing!

A study in the Preventative Medicine Journal reported the results of a meta-analysis of research examining the effects of gardening, including horticultural therapy, on health. They found substantive evidence to suggest that gardening can "improve physical, psychological, and social health, which can, from a long-term perspective, alleviate and prevent various health issues facing today's society."

If gardening is something that appeals to you, we are here to help. No matter your experience level, whether you are a novice who has no idea where to get started or an expert that would love something new to bring to your experience, there's the perfect gardening task for you.

We will keep you updated on everything we have coming in this spring to make your 2022 gardening season, the best yet!

We look forward to seeing or speaking with you soon. Happy Therapy!

4 Steps to a Bountiful Harvest with Your Victory Garden

 

While we are all going through this time of recalibration together, yet “socially distanced” from each other, one of the things we notice trending again are Victory Gardens.  Though we are not at war, the effect of this pandemic certainly feels like it at times.
Gardening has become one of the few activities we are allowed to do and, in fact, are encouraged to do. Victory Gardens will allow you to exercise both your mental and physical well-being.

Fascinating things about humans.

Our homes and gardens are our safe havens right now and as a result we are seeing a growth in….well, in growth.  As far as the timing goes, it couldn’t be a more appropriate.  Spring is upon us and it is time to plant.

As we do not know how this crisis will affect us long term, a number of people have started growing their own food source – some are doing it for recreation, and some as a genuine way to ensure fresh food for their families throughout the season.

If a Victory Garden is something that appeals to you, we are here to help.

Step 1 – Where to Plant Your Victory Garden?

 

Step 2 – What to Grow in Your Victory Garden?

 

Step 3 – When to Grow?

 

Step 4 – When to Harvest Your Victory Garden?

 

It’s a lot of information, we know.  If you haven’t grown your own food before, it can feel overwhelming.  But, that is why we are here.

You can view what is currently available to start getting ideas for what you may want to plant in your own garden.  If you're looking to start anything from Strawberries to Onions to Cole Crops we've got what you're looking for in our Veggies, Fruits, and Herbs page.

We have the plants and expertise to help you start your own garden with everything needed for success. Now, that is a Victory indeed.

Find details on how we are safely conducting business under the “Stay Home, Stay Safe” directive on our website, link here.

We are open from 8am-5:45pm Monday through Saturday at 9275 South 1300 West.

See ya soon.

Huge selection and very helpful and knowledgeable staff. I’ve bought may plants from them and all... but one have survived, and it was hassle free to return the one that didn’t. I love that they have multiple size selections for plants so that I don’t have to get a tree that’s huge already if I don’t want to. I also appreciate that they label where things are at so that you can find things if you are looking for something specific.read more

I highly suggest this nursery - the only reason it only got a 4-star is because they are very... pricey. Great help, great products, just way too expensive. Parking is a real bear too - I'd suggest going off-hours for the best parking. Even on the busiest weekend, the employees keep up with the check out lanes so the wait to check out has never taken more than 10 minutes.Best nursery I've found in Salt Lake County.read more

We have been frequenting Glover Nursery quite a bit while we are re-landscaping out back yard. We... have found their staff to be extremely helpful and very honest. Their staff have guided us toward better plant selection many times to help meet our desire to have low-water plants as much as possible. They also offer up to 5-year warranties on many of their larger plants and trees, if you use certain products when planting. We will continue to return to Glover time and time again for our landscaping needs!read more

Ordered 77 plants and 3 trees from them and they all arrived looking healthy and vibrant.Ordered mulch this summer as well, and they gave a quick refund when we accidently ordered one too many truck loads of mulch.Have a few plants that are struggling after being planted. If they don't make it I am anxious to see how seamless the plant warrantee is.read more

This is the third year in a row that we have purchased our Christmas tree at this nursery. We have... had very few issues with the trees themselves and the customer service here is top notch.The gentlemen who help take the tree to our car and tie it down are always very kind and professional. They do a great job every time. We haven't had any issues with the trees sliding around on the car and they have never caused any damage to our cars.The customer service has always been very professional as well. They are considerate people who always make sure we are happy with our trees.The only issue we had was the first tree we purchased from them. It did dry out a little quicker than we had planned but luckily it was very close to Christmas, so it was no problem. They have a good selection of trees and carry everything from little tiny two foot trees to enormous 10 foot plus trees.I highly recommend this nursery, not only for Christmas trees, but also for gardening all year long. The staff is always knowledgeable and great to work with.read more

You'll find better service, better expertise, and surprisingly competitive prices. The plants are localized to our climate, instead of the Bonnie brand that everybody else sells and who knows where are grown. You'll find a large selection of fruit and ornamental trees, bulk soil amendments (bagged too), bedding plants, and the great variety of goods you'd expect to find at a large local nursery. I'm glad a rediscovered this nursery after Western Gardens closed our local store.read more

We've also used their delivery services and well as their planting services- both of which were wonderful! They arrive on time and the work is done very professionally. They also have staff that are very knowledgable about the plants and products they sell, which is something other nurseries are seriously lacking with their employees, so that's something I appreciate! All of our purchases from trees, to flowers to veggies have always done great, I couldn't rave about them more!read more

My girlfriend and I decided as first time plant buyers to make this the first nursery we visited in... our quest to find the perfect ensemble of pet safe, shade friendly, and easy to maintain plants because of the rave reviews Glover's has (which I spent an hour reading through simply because they were pleasant to read). Rett kindly greeted us within about 2 minutes of us starting to browse the rows and rows of plants. He asked what we were looking for. We explained and he quickly pointed us to which spots of the nursery would have plants fitting our criteria. He taught us where to look to find plant information which was very helpful to us newbies. He provided wise words: to start small with our plants and to grow our garden as we became more comfortable with our green thumbs. He answered every question we had with knowledge and the occasional--and very welcomed--joke! We will always come back to Glover's after this amazing experience on our very first visit. Thanks Glover's and thanks Rett!read more
