Noot is the secret sauce that keeps my plants alive and thriving

Noot is the secret sauce that keeps my plants alive and thriving.

This front garden bed of mine, ugh! It has been a chore getting it to be what I want. I am not the most plant knowledgable, but the way the builders left this hodgepodge of a bed when we bought the house was too unorganized. My front bed lacks color and I have tried to ‘guess’ my way into the right set up, but then I am left with a mess or just brown and dark green 3 of the 4 seasons. I am finally soliciting my sister to help me design the garden as she has come to love gardening so she can now help me.

Noot mix

She gave me some tasks to do before we shop. I am moving some plants around and even transplanting a boxwood we feel won’t work here in the end, but I love the health of it so I want to keep it. I am adding a few English Daisies for some spring color as I wait for summer plants to be available to buy and plant. To do this, I am using the trusty Noot, where every watering offers no-fuss organic fertilizing that fuels long lasting, natural growth. Noot keeps my plants alive and thriving.

Noot food

Whether planting or transplanting, the nutrients you give your plants to root and thrive in their new locations matters the most. I have old soil on top of clay/rocks, so I have had to add more layers of better soil and really make sure I am giving them the best feed.

plant food

Noot nourishes plants with 18 powerful organic ingredients combined with beneficial bacteria. Noot makes caring for plants easy with monthly delivery and comes in 3 varieties – Noot Mix (standard for all plants), Husky Mix (for root health) and Rescue Mix (for damaged/strained plants). To use, just pour it on the soil and Noot converts ordinary water into a complex nutritional and microbial solution that every plant craves.

feeding plants

With the Noot plan 7 gallons of feeding fits within 2 glass tubes for under $20. Choose how much you need delivered from 3.5 gallons to 300 gallons worth of plant food. Noot Works with most houseplants: tropicals, succulents, ferns, palms, cactus, bonsai, calathea, orchids, anthuriums, monsteras, aroids, and even kitchen herbs. Simply, mix 1 tsp of Noot every 1/2 gallon of water. No PH-ing needed. Learn more at Grow with Noot!

The Spunky Stork clean, organic, non-toxic clothing for babies and children

The Spunky Stork

I have to start by saying that with social distancing, the baby I am gifting my onesie to is unavailable to us right now and I am so sad because this is too adorable to keep at my house! This onesie by The Spunky Stork “My Sibling Has Paws” is perfect for a first child (who’s only siblings may be the family dog). Maybe Maya is unsure about it below, but when that baby visits she is so curious and protective of him. They have dogs too so I can’t wait to be able and give him his easter basket I still have here until we can get together.

Dog Onesie

This is my first experience with The Spunky Stork and right away I can feel the quality in the fabric. It is soft yet thick and snaps at the bottom and pleated at the shoulders. They source only 100% GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) certified organic cotton material. We love sustainable products here!

Sibling onesie

Have you seen the chemicals and dyes used in much of the infant/toddler clothing in stores? It is a lot for those new immune systems of theirs. Clean and organic is the best clothing option for them. This is why you will find only white in colors – to avoid toxic dyes. Non-toxic dyes are hard to develop and would be cost prohibited for a piece of clothing.

Just wait until you see their Mother’s Day and Father’s Day Twinning sets! The designs and sets are too adorable! Find the baby, child, Mom or Dad clean, organic, non-toxic clothing for babies and more at The Spunky Stork available here!
