The BUFCO Blog

ver the years many of the same questions pop up from excited and exasperated gardeners who are looking for practical ideas and tested solutions to common gardening challenges. “How do I feed and mulch my soil?”, “Why is there fuzzy white stuff on my zucchini leaves?” and “What can I do about the @#$%%&* squirrels?!” We share many of the same challenges and we think the BUFCO blog is an inviting, helpful place for you to find some answers, new ideas and a little inspiration.

There will always be something new for us to share so please check in often and let us know what you think. If you have questions, requests for specific posts, or want to share your own great ideas, please do send them our way. We’d love to hear from you!
