Tulips, often viewed as a sign of spring, as they’re one of the first flowers we see each year, have some pretty cool roles in history. In 1940 the Dutch Royal family left Holland for Canada to escape the German invasion. To thank their hosts after Germany’s defeat, the family gave Canada 100,000 tulip bulbs, and they continue to send 20,000 each year. To celebrate this gift the Canadian Tulip Festival was created!

JACK’S JOURNAL: Yup, that’s right we are bringing JJ back! We have been watching the trends and listening to what YOU are asking us… so over the next month we will be sharing fun tips on “Bringing The Outside In”

THIS WEEK: Pumpkin Succulent Centerpieces. Who doesn’t love a fun fall centerpiece?! Create your own one of a kind, long-lasting fall decoration that is great for the home or office. It is super simple – here is what you need:

1. Pumpkin - of course 🎃
2. Sphagnum Moss & Succulent Cuttings (we like to use jade,
sedum, hens and chicks, and burrows tale) – you can grab
both from your favorite garden cent
3. Glue Gun

Next, glue the sphagnum moss on the top around the stem (PSA be careful the glue is HOT🔥)... next place the cuttings throughout. There is NO wrong way, just use your creativity and some have fun! Oh... and don't forget to share your pictures with us!

It is the orchid blooming time in New York City. Should Jack's Original and the Blooming formulas be used at the same time?
Thank you for your help answering my question via Messenger! These are the mammoth petunias the day we brought them home last year, June 10th, from our local greenhouse that daily uses and highly recommends your Petunia FeED. We followed suit and continue to this year as well, and am gifting part of my 25 lb bag to family so they, too, will have beautiful petunias all season that won't become leggy in August!
Can the 20-20-20 be used to water your Christmas Tree?
We had a nice little Christmas cactus and now look how it's grown. Thank you Jack's
Quick question...I want to use Jack's Classic 20-20-20 in a metered sprayer, so I'm making a liquid concentrate from the powder. Any suggestions on the ratio of powder to water to make a concentrate that will apply at the usual 1 Tbsp per gallon rate? Many thanks!
I love this product. Just recently went onto the website and I cannot find product labels. You have pictures of the lables, but they cannot be zoomed in. So I have no idea what is in the fertilizer or the rates
