Dave Epstein: Hi I'm Dave Epstein this is Growing Wisdom. I am here on the tradeshow floor of New England Groves and if you’ve watched our videos for a number of years, you know that this is where horticulture professionals come in order to find out what’s the latest and greatest not only in tractors and tools but plants, as well as techniques. So there are a lot of things going on in a tradeshow forum. We’re going to take a look and introduce you to a couple of them.
So one of those new products that we’re talking about is the Aroostook Blend Hay & Straw Mulch and we’re here at the Coast of Maine booth and we’re with Cameron Bonsey. Cameron, this is pretty neat stuff tell me about it.
Cameron Bonsey: Well this is our Aroostook Blend Hay & Straw Mulch and the key to this is its dehydrated and through that dehydration process your weed seeds are killed. So if you go to seed your lawn and you put this over to retain moisture, it’s not going to infect your lawn with weeds and it’s going to breakdown quickly into the soil because it’s very fine and it’s going to feed the soil on top of just being there to protect the seeds.
Dave Epstein: It smells great and you're touting it is an alternative because we don’t want people going out and taking the hay. You can buy this product and it’s great for the environment in that way.
Cameron Bonsey: Well that was the key and so this is a modern alternative to that and it is environmentally friendly too.
Dave Epstein: Awesome stuff. So just one of the many things that horticultural professionals come to a show like this for to find the latest things that are out there. We’re going to go on to the tradeshow floor and see what else we can find.
So here we are I found this tool booth and some of the cool things that they're touting—this tool which is great for folks with arthritis or little bit elderly. So these are some of the tools that the horticultural folks will come and buy and then they can put them in the stores for you.
We also have booths with products like composters, as well as rain barrels and those are some of the other products that you may see at your garden center this coming year.
So that’s just a little taste of some of the things here at New England Grows—a place where the horticulture professionals are coming to bring the latest product to you and of course we’re bringing the latest videos to you every week here at Growing Wisdom.
