PHASE III -
Adding from the ground up!
=========================================
In conjunction with EARTH DAY 2007, PSBP implement the third phase of planting to the existing medians between Hwy 67 and Red Bird Lane on Saturday, April 28th.
Immediate NEED!!!
We are in need of community givers to help with watering the floral beds/trees or provide $$ donations toward the cost of having a landscape company do it for us.  Please email us @ PolkStreetProject@hotmail.com if interested in helping with our current watering  situation.

Gardening Tips   
********************************************************************************************                                                                           
1. When planing you flower beds, make sure to plant some varieties which can be dried for winter arrangements.                                    
                                                                           
2. When purchasing plants, opt for ones that aren't yet in bloom. Many plants without blossoms will actually bloom sooner when planted
 than those already in bloom and often will grow better.                       
                                                                            
3. For your flower bed borders, consider scattering poppy seeds. The seeds don't need to be covered and will grow quite rapidly which will give a colorful border in no time.                                       
                                                                            
4. When planting trees, be sure not to add organic matter to the soil. Organic matter won't help with the trees growth or to establish it and can make it so the tree roots don't spread in the ground properly. When you dig a hole, make sure to keep the soil removed so that you can fill  in the tree with it.
