This site cannot cover everything about gardening but IS specialized to the mulch method. Almost all of this information can be applied to conventional gardens as well. We also limit our expertise to organic gardening and do not condone newspaper or plastic mulch. A limited amount of our seeds will be available for purchase.  

Any suggestions/ tips please send us an email to  opskelowna @ GRMinc . ca


REMEMBER: When the leaves fall it is time to load up your mulch garden.
