{spring fling must-haves} and a giveaway!!!

This is a sponsored post and giveaway by Central Garden & Pet. All opinions are 100% my own. Please see full disclosure below.


 It's spring, and you all know what that brings! It means trips to Home Depot, Lowe's and other home & garden stores to get flowers and plants for your yard and garden. It's probably the most popular place in town on a Saturday morning!  I love hanging flower baskets, and a few weeks ago we went to get some for our back porch. I LOVE red, and it was my color of choice this year!

While we were there, we also perused the fertilizer aisles for something that help us keep our flowers happy and alive.  ☺ Am I the only ones who stare at all the products there, not really knowing anything about them, or how to choose one? Well, that's me.  So, when I had the opportunity to try out a few different kinds of plant food and insecticides, I jumped at the chance.  I'm excited to share them with you too!


This week we tried a lawn and plant food by Ironite. This is our first spring in Texas, and with all the heat, I knew my flowers would need something to help them out. Ironite® Plus Lawn & Plant Food 12-10-10 contains fast-acting nutrients for lush growth, strong roots, colorful flowers, and abundant fruits and vegetables, which is exactly what I was looking for. It's also dual-acting, and  feeds through foliage and roots formulated with 1% Iron and does not cause plant “burn.”

It is SO easy to use.  All you do is hook it up to your hose, turn on the water, and then you can easily spray it onto your lawn, trees, shrubs and flowers.  This container covers 5,000 square feet!

Once it's hooked onto your hose and the water is on, you can  turn it off and on by just turning this little green knob--easy, peasy! You can apply it every 2-4 weeks as needed.

10 days later...so far so good!  The flowers are still alive ☺, and beautiful. I LOVE looking at them through my family room windows everyday!
