An old German superstition holds that if a hibernating animal casts a shadow Feb. 2 – the Christian holiday of Candlemas – winter would last another six weeks. If no shadow was seen, legend said spring would come early.

This year, both Wiarton Willie and his American cousin, Punxsutawney Phil, predicted another 6 weeks of winter a few days ago on February 2 (Groundhog Day). Yet this week we are experiencing temperatures in the double digits (Centigrade).Today was 11 degrees and more of the same tomorrow.

In front of little plaza near our office is a lawn that catches a lot of the sunshine since the lawn faces south.

Lo and behold that lawn was a beautiful green colour. It was a refreshing sight to see that patch of turf. Don't know if it was starting to grow, but it almost seemed like it was ready to be fertilized by the Turf King technicians.

 

OnLine Payments

The other day, someone mentioned that he wasn't able to find the place to make an online payment. Sorry that we have failed to give you all the necessary information. The online payments option is not something that is done within our Turf King site.

By online payments, we mean that you can make a payment to your account through the major Canadian banks and through the Credit Union association. Go to your bank or credit union site, log in with your user name and password. Look for the Bill Payment section. Most often you will have to add "Turf King Hamilton"" as a biller. Use your 10 digit account number for this purpose.Then go through the steps of making a payment from your bank or credit union account.

By the way when you call the office, please say "This is Mary Jones or Bill MacDonald." Don't say "This is account number 1234 5678 90." We prefer to talke to Mary or Bill, or Mrs Smith, not a number. The account number is mainly for the internet banking. Even when trying to find your information, we can usually find it just as fast with your name as we can by using your account number. Plus it's so much easier to remember and use your name than a string of digits.

Deep root feeding

It's not too late for 2008

Call Now for Healthier Trees & Shrubs

Deep root feed your trees and shrubs this fall. Once the plants have started to turn colour, growth has stopped and it is safe to apply nutrients to the root zone. (If fed too early, the presultant plant growth will not have enough time to harden off before winter.)

 

When fed in Late October through early November, the nutrients are taken up by the tree and shrub roots and are there ready to be used for the Spring growth.

 

We were exploring the gardens in Hampton Court Palace this summer in London England.We were amazed to see these enormous yew trees. Here in Canada, we see very few yews of any size. At Hampton Court, there were yews with trunks that were easily 18 inches or more in diameter. Hampton Court was built in the 1500 to 1600's. These huge yews could be several hundred years old.

Deep Root Feed makes Sense
