Plant Mature Bamboo Plants And Help The Environment

If you have been watching the show racing extinction you know how bad we need to create more oxygen and less carbon dioxide. Which is exactly what bamboo does. It creates more oxygen than trees and plants about 4 times as much. It also takes in more carbon dioxide than these plants. If everyone grew bamboo we could change the climate. And cut down on the amount of carbon dioxide that enters the atmosphere. And my prices are the cheapest around. We are conveniently located at 51 Enzweiler Rd. in Alexandria, KY 41001.

We can even install them for you also for a small fee usually 5 to 10 dollars a pot. We have excellent deals going on right now and there is still plenty of time to plant. The sooner you plant the better. We will tell you how. And we are always available if you need advice about your new plants. The customer service does not stop there. If your bamboo starts to get out of control we can help.

The Best Time To Plant Mature Bamboo Plants

Plants are dormant right now so it is the best time to plant in my opinion. The larger the plant you start with the faster they will spread and provide you with all the privacy you need for the upcoming years. Privacy is becoming one of the most important things there is in these trying times. People want there privacy back and I don’t blame them. Mature bamboo plants will spread about 10-15 ft. in one year. Non-mature plants will spread about 3-5 ft. in a year. The larger the grove the faster it spreads. The larger the grove the larger the canes. And that is what most people are looking for. Mature bamboo plants make great products and timber for building larger structures. These mature bamboo plants are hardy to -15 degrees f. And most years hold green leaves all winter long. Now don’t get me wrong we have had some bad winters lately and the bamboo has suffered some damage but when the time comes to shoot new shoots, they never fail me. At least for the last 19 years and counting. So get yours today from the sidebar or you can visit my Amazon store to check out all of our products. www.amazon.com/shops/A13JAQNPXDNX Here are just a few of our reviews from verified Amazon customers.

Bamboo Why Not?

Bamboo is one of the most widely used plants on the planet today. Bamboo is responsible for thousands and thousands of products on the supermarket shelves today. And you don’t want to be a big part of that. Well I certainly want some of that action. It’s the whole reason I started doing this many years ago. Bamboo actually supplies me with many of the things I use around the house and I think of more every day. Not to mention the products I build and sell which is again growing every day.



The Bamboo Business

Bamboo is sustainable and will keep supplying my business for many years to come. Having the bamboo gives me so many options for products for my business. When I started growing bamboo most people hated the plant. Now that products are being produced every day it is a lot more accepted. It is needed for our environment. With bamboo being more widely used as timber it is cutting down the number of trees that need to be cut. Which will again help the environment. Without it my business would suffer greatly. In fact it has become the biggest part of my business and couldn’t run my business without it. Imagine having an unlimited supply of lumber to build with or a privacy screen surrounding your home.

A Bamboo For Everything

Let me tell you having 50 different species of bamboo you always have just what someone is looking for. From ground covers to giants we carry quite a few of each. We try to carry plants for every season. And plants for every reason. We also carry many of the plants most nurseries do not carry. We take pride in our plants and we guarantee most of the plants we sell. Cold hardy bamboo plants are what we sell and we would never sell you a bamboo that is out of its zone requirements. If you would like to get your bamboo grove started today you can visit me at 51 Enzweiler Rd. Alexandria, KY 41001. But you must call first I am open by appointment only. (859)242-1602 Jeff.

Organic Grown Vegetable Starts Getting Started Right

Organic grown vegetable starts are the best type of plants to use when gardening for your family. I know you want healthy plants to grow for your family and Gabelman’s Gardens offers the best in organic grown vegetable starts. Grown in soils with all natural mixes of organic compost. We guarantee that your plants will do well and we stand behind our products. This will be our third year of offering these magnificent plants. If you come out to visit I will show you how I do it and you will see for yourself. It’s all about quality grown plants. And we are serious about customer service. We have these plants available for the next 3-4 months but they won’t last. They always fly out of here. Because we take our time to make sure these plants are taken care of everyday. I think it’s all about quality and not quantity. I would much rather eat an ear of Silver Queen Corn than Peaches and Cream. Peaches and Cream is a hybrid bred for quantity which in my opinion is very tough. Silver Queen is an heirloom variety which has been grown for many, many years grown for its sweetness and soft corn. It’s exactly that element that we try to capture with our organic grown vegetable starts. We grow the heirloom varieties and we always will. Simply because they have the best taste. I mean that is what it is all about to me. If you are going to go through the trouble of doing all the work for vegetables you might as well use the best quality plants to start with. And right now with the deals we have going on you won’t get your plants cheaper anywhere than Gabelman’s Gardens. I guarantee it. And you can not get this kind of buying experience anywhere. If you would like to stop by and get your garden started off right give me a call at (859)635-0922. We are conveniently located at 51 Enzweiler Rd. Alexandria, KY 41001. The plants we have available right now are.

***Update*** The vegetable starts are flying out of here so get yours today!!


Ponderosa, Beefsteak, Roma, Celebrity, Big Boy and Better Boy




Yellow Straight-Neck, Black Beauty Zucchini

Water Garden Ecosystem

A Water Garden Is Nature’s Beauty On Display

Water Garden

Water Garden

A water garden is a fun and relaxing hobby. A water garden is a peaceful way to recharge your body, mind and spirit. Waterfalls are an excellent way to relieve the stress of everyday life. Watching a waterfall can lower your blood pressure. It is a proven fact. If you have fish swimming around enjoying the water garden even better. It is fun to watch your pets swimming around looking for food. You might even get to see your fish trying to swim up the waterfall. And its even more fun to feed them. Once they get used to you feeding them, they will be looking for you everyday. Mine can hear me coming across the deck and they start getting excited swimming around the area where they feed. Some can even be trained to eat right out of your hand. Now take all of that and add some beautiful flowers like waterlilies and you are set. The gorgeous blooms of these magnificent flowers will have you wanting to go see them in your water garden. Water gardening is very easy to do because all things in the water garden work together to create an entire ecosystem.

Water Garden All Living Things Working Together

A water garden is an amazing ecosystem that is run by nature. All things in a water garden work hand in hand to keep the little world running smooth. It starts with the water where all things will live. Then comes the bacteria that consume the waste and turn it into fertilizer for the plants. The plants provide shade, protection and oxygen. The fertilizer helps them grow big and strong. The shade cools the water and blocks the sun from growing algae. The fish waste will also help to fertilize the plants making them grow bigger and produce more oxygen. The waterfalls help to aerate the water removing harmful gases that would otherwise make the fish sick. So not only does the waterfall aerate the water but it also puts oxygen into the water keeping the balance of the water garden. Bacteria and amphibians will find their way to the pond and live there as well. it helps the environment by giving these organisms a place to live and thrive. With the population explosion they need as many of these types of environments as they can find to keep the circle of life rolling on. The more of these environments we can provide the better.

A Great Water Garden Is All About The Construction

When thinking about water gardening think most about where to put the water garden. Because you want it where you can get the most benefit from it. Like right outside a picture window on next to a patio or garden sitting area. Maybe near a fire pit. For the simple reason that you want to be able to relax when viewing it. Which will relieve your stress. The sound of running water is so soothing. Also another big thing to remember is size. When it comes to water gardening size  matters. Always try to make your water  garden as large as possible the first  time. Or you might end up putting it in again when you decide you made it too small. The larger a water garden is the easier it is to take care of. And the more space you have for large plants and large fish the happier you will be. I made mine larger 3  times already and it still isn’t big enough. I need one the size of a large swimming pool. Waterfalls are a must when it comes to water gardening. When my waterfalls are running I can hear them in the spring and summer from my window. The sounds of the frogs croaking at night will put you right to sleep. Another thing to consider when water gardening is depth of the water. Water depth can be a big problem if the Great Blue Heron comes for a visit. Because he can wipe out your whole water garden in one afternoon. But if  the water is too deep he will just move along to another feeding ground. I found this out the hard way. The Great Blue Heron and I had a couple of battles over the years. I would chase him off and he would fly up the street way off into a tall tree. When I got in my car and drove away he would come right back. He sat and watched me leave and would come right back every time. Wiped out all of my fish 3 different times. I was so mad. But they are a protected species and you can’t kill them. So you just have to outsmart them. So I drained all the water gardens and took out all of the plant shelves, made the walls of the pond very steep and very deep. He never came back. If they can stand in your pond and eat they will keep coming back until they have killed all of your fish. One time he just went and killed some fish never even ate them.

In A Water Garden Planting Depths Are Important

When planting plants in a water garden the depths to plant different plants vary. So make sure and do your research before planting water plants. A water-lily has a depth preference from 1 foot deep to almost 4 foot deep depending on the variety. Water lilies are tropical or hardy depending on the variety. Hardy water lilies can handle very low temperatures provided the water garden is deep enough to protect them from freezing solid. Tropical water lilies will not survive our winters(zone 6) unless grown indoors for the winter or pulled from the water garden and stored properly. Which I have not tried yet but plan on it this year. Marginal on the other hand need to be planted near the water’s surface too deep and they will die. Lotus are hardy and can be planted deep up to 4 foot deep. And they are beautiful when they bloom in a water garden. Floating plants do not need to be planted in soil they just float around in your water garden. But keep in mind that these little plants multiply rapidly and can cover a pond completely in just  a couple of weeks. Which is a perfect opportunity to make a little money on the side selling the extra plants. But these plants will not survive our winters unless taken inside and grown indoors. And that can become a very stinky mess. I tried it one year with no success at all. Now that being said under the right conditions it is possible. I just don’t have the capabilities.

A Water Garden Can Be A Great Addition To Any Garden

Along with all the other different types of gardening I do water gardening is one of my favorites. Because you just put all the ingredients together nature takes care of the rest. And you have a stress  relieving way to end or begin your day. The fish are happy to have a nice place to live instead of cramped up in a tank. they have their own little world with everything they need right there for them. Water gardening is a great hobby for kids of all ages. Just be sure to never let a small child around your water garden without supervision. Accidents happen and children can fall in trying to feed fish or touch them. Water gardening is a great way to get out of the house and enjoy life. if you would like to see our product list check out my Amazon Store  www.amazon.com/shops/A13JAQNPXDNX

Planting Vegetable Seed Secrets Revealed

Planting Vegetable Seed

Planting Vegetable Seed

Planting vegetable seed is the best way to grow your own vegetables in my honest opinion. One reason I feel this way is because you control everything about growing these vegetables. You can grow them all organic or use fertilizer. My personal favorite way to grow them is all organic. Because I don’t want to have to worry about pesticides or preservatives going into my vegetables. I want only what nature would put in them. I feel like that is the healthiest way to grow them and they will give us the benefits that we need for a strong healthy body. Planting vegetable seed is pretty easy and can be done almost any time of the year with the help of a heated greenhouse. Planting your seed early will result in an early harvest and longer growing season. Which is what we all want regardless of how we grow them. Using rain water to water the plants with will insure no chlorine burn and the plants will thank you for that. I like to use compost tea made from fresh rain water. There is no better option in my opinion.

Planting Vegetable Seed To Sell

Planting vegetable seed to sell is a whole different animal. You are only growing to sell these plants so your attention should be on how to get the most out of your space available. How to grow them as fast as possible. How to grow the healthiest plants possible. Organic vegetable plants sell best and you can charge a little more for them because they are grown organically. And last but not least you need to figure out the best ways to sell your product. Farmers markets and local greenhouse stores will buy your plants from you or help you sell them. And there are many other ways to sell these plants, but I am not going to tell all of my secrets. I will give you another secret. I use bottom heat to grow all of my seed. It helps them germinate faster and the roots grow faster and stronger. That is a fact.

Planting Vegetable Seed Early To Get Ahead Of The Competition

Makes sure you are planting vegetable seed early so that the competition doesn’t beat you to the sale. I made that mistake last year and it cost me. I could have had time to grow and sell to more crops if I hadn’t started so late. So for that I could have made maybe another $2000 if I had started earlier. This year I am getting started a lot earlier and I am going to plan it out much better. Plus I added on to my greenhouse so I have twice the amount of space. It’s gonna be a great year inside my greenhouse and I can’t wait to get started. So I am starting today doing some greenhouse maintenance. So that when I’m ready to plant I won’t have anything stopping me.  I am doubling the size of my vegetable start business and it is a great success so far after 3-4 years of doing it. I really enjoy planting vegetable seed to grow and sell starts and grow for my own use.  www.amazon.com/shops/A13JAQNPXDNX
