Calloway’s Nursery Publishes New Video On Saving Water With Neil Sperry

July 29, 2019 - /PressAdvantage/ - Fort Worth, Texas based Calloway’s Nursery (CN) is delighted to announce the launch of a new video that they hope will help inform the public how to save water as they tend to their plants. Kim Gotcher of Calloway’s Nursery stated, “Water is a precious commodity to all Texans. We are delighted that N. Sperry, our local Texan gardening expert, has taken the time to help everyone save water and enjoy their garden. His video on saving water, and the tips it contains, will be permanently available for anyone to view on our website.”

Texans enjoy having beautiful gardens, and they especially take pride in overcoming challenging conditions to show off their favorite plants or grow their own produce. Interest in gardening, as it has in the rest of the US, has grown significantly across Texas over the past few decades. Young and old enthusiasts alike want to actively develop their own green thumbs, seeking to make their gardens unique and help the environment at the same time—often going so far as to use professional landscape design and installation services to help ensure they are making the most of their garden.

Even those who do not think they can garden often find that a little bit of help from Calloway’s Nursery, and some expert advice from Neil Sperry, is sometimes all it takes to transform their patch into something they are proud to show off to their family, friends, and neighbors.

In the article featured on CN’s website, Neil highlights a number of key factors that can make all the difference in any gardener’s efforts. He begins with soil preparation, noting that the black clay soil found in the North Texas area is just not very receptive to water, it just runs off. Droughts, heat waves, and even poor watering can cause this condition. Depending on a garden’s current state, there are several options to consider—and the teams at any of the CN garden centers can provide advice to address such issues.

Sperry notes that using mulch is a good method by which members of the community can raise soil moisture in their gardens, as it helps retain moisture that would otherwise evaporate. It also helps prevent weeds, which can often take up a lot of the water that gardeners would prefer was used by their prized plants. Sperry also recommends that new plants are watered by hand for the first year, in addition to soaking them deeply every two to four days. Gardeners should also use a water breaker and a wand. It is worth watching Sperry’s video in full to hear all the advice he provides.

The full video, and many articles that are just as informative, are freely accessible on the Calloway’s Nursery website, where visitors can learn more and sign up for their rewards points, birthday savings, and special email offers. The nursery’s website also provides a map link to their locations which can be downloaded to any phone using Google Maps. Calloway's Nursery is a popular gardening destination among customers, with hundreds of reviews and recommendations shared online. This customer and fan engagement extends to Facebook, where over 32,000 people follow them to keep up with their latest posts.

In her recent Facebook review, Kerry M. relayed how she went looking for a specific plant that was unfortunately out of stock. However, she added that, “the Store Manager, Tom, not only called the surrounding stores to locate one for me, he also offered to pick it up at the location that had one in stock (in Hurst, TX) on his way home tonight—and is bringing it back to the Flower Mound location for me to pick up tomorrow. What awesome service, and a huge time saver for me. I have been a loyal customer of Calloway’s and will continue to be. Thanks, Tom, for all you do for our community!”
