Use the Mulch as a powerful social media tool designed for the gardening clubs.

Use the Mulch to promote your club and help local gardeners by telling:

Would you like to get more people to join your club? Would you like your club to be helpful to the community? Do you have a specific expertise? Would you just like to help others be more successful in their gardens? Now you can!

Wouldn't it be great if it was easier for local gardeners to benefit from your knowledge?

We want to work together with you to use our FREE online features and tools to create an amazing resource for your existing club members, future members and the community as a whole!. Let us show you how the Mulch can help your club.

Gardening clubs can use the features of the Mulch to create value for your existing and future members:

  • Plant Lists - Create community, by connecting customers through the plants they are interested in, Here's an example.
  • Monthly Plant Care Reminders automatically sent directly from YOU using our system. Here's an example from Mitch's southern California Garden.
  • Publicize Events, including seminars, classes, sales and special events.
  • Create Private Groups for your members to communicate and ask questions.
  • Share Photo Galleries.
  • Tag Plants instead of people - now you can TAG a plant photo and share it with your friends. Great for recommending plants!
  • All for FREE!

The most unique tool on the Mulch is our Plant Care Reminders feature.

Our new Plant Care Sharing feature lets you easily create care instructions for your local area, and the plants you're familiar with, then we deliver that information directly to interested gardeners in your area at the appropriate time. Our online tools/features can take your current regular monthly "Plant Care Sheets" and "To-Do List"s you give to your members or the community and turn them into interactive social media marketing tools! These personalized plant care reminders are automatically sent to local gardeners (including your member) each month. This is the most targeted marketing opportunity available anywhere! Best of all it's easy and it's free!

As a club you could say - "we have free monthly care reminders for this plant which can automatically sent to you if you'd like". Wouldn't that be a great way to help the gardening community and get a whole bunch of publicity at the same time?

The Mulch can send your plant care knowledge directly to interested gardeners.

The Mulch takes your plant care expertise and automatically creates customized Monthly Plant Care Calendar for your clients! It's the future of Plant Care - start taking advantage of this fantastic feature today. Contact Us Now!

All you need to do is complete an easy to use form which lets your customer know when to do any or all of 14 different tasks, including when to buy, plant, fertilize, prune, sow seeds and water.

With this system you can tell people:

  • What products you recommend?
  • What local climate issues affect plant care.
  • When to buy plants (maybe at your plant sale?)
  • When to plant seeds.
  • When to fertilize... with what product
  • When to Prune... with what tool.
  • When to increase or decrease water.
  • And much more!

Advantages of Using our System:

  • Leverage your knowledge (you already have this, we're just helping you communicate it to your members and the public).
  • Increase your brand awareness - your name and logo is seen every time people review instructions either on their personal profile of when we send personalized lists to their email.
  • We promote Plant Care Providers in newsletters, forums and email blasts.
  • Get NEW members.
  • We're constantly advertising and getting new gardeners to visit and join our website. These members are potential new members for you.
  • Increased web hits through links and heightened exposure.
  • Care instructions are search-able by Sunset and USDA climate zones, region, or Company.

You may be saying this seems like a lot of work - not really, you already know how to care for the plants you sell, you just need to complete our form which breaks it into monthly reminders - and we'll help you in any way we can. In our system you're not telling them HOW to do it, just WHEN to do it. So it's not hard, you're simply using our system to tell them in a new better way what you ALREADY tell them.

Once you've finished a plant once - you don't have to ever redo it (unless you want to), so you can start with a few of the most common plants you use and gradually create more. In addition we've made it very simple to create monthly care reminders and COPY and PASTE them to other Plants, so you may create ONE set of instructions for Woody Perennials and easily to all plants which qualify. You can create reminders over time - don't have to do all the plants at once, so one week you do Palms, then next Roses, the next Salvias - before you know it you'll have your whole nursery done!

In addition, the majority of your membership is coming from the local area and the climate which is unique to your location. Small differences in plant care timing can really make a difference. Our system embraces this issue, and takes your expertise and leverages it to increase sales.

Features:

  • Completely customizable to your organization.
  • You absolutely do not have to have any advanced computer knowledge. All you need to do is be able to have access to the Internet, and be able to write (a little), cut and paste.
  • You have complete control over the content you deliver.
  • Club spotlight, including description of your organization, contact information, logo, links to your website (if you have one) and much more.
  • Covers 14 critical tasks, including when to fertilize, prune, water, treat for disease or pests and much more.
