What's in Bloom this month?

MAY 2021

Enter to Win the Bloom & Grow Photo Contest!

In case you missed the announcement during Bloom's Earth Day event on responsible feeding and fertilization with Homestead Gardens, we are teaming up on a photo contest that will run all season!

Take a photo of something you’ve grown in Bloom and upload via this form for a chance to win $150 gift certificate to Homestead and other prizes. The contest will run through Labor Day to give your juicy tomatoes a chance to ripen and your late bloomers a chance to flower!

Customer of the Month: Quiet Waters

Quiet Waters Park, a 340-acre park in Anne Arundel County, is new to Bloom, but its horticulturalist, Matt Pruett, is an old friend, having used our products at River Farm in Alexandria.

"I am excited to bring Bloom here to Quiet Waters Park, having seen its benefits both as a soil amendment and a topdressing. It works great and provides visible benefits to plants. I also love the environmental aspect of using Bloom. I will be incorporating it in every planting we do," said Matt.

Welcoming New Bloom Team Addition

Bloom is pleased to welcome Jimmy Larimore, Bloom Scale Technician, to the team! Jimmy is no stranger to wastewater, having worked for Charles County's wastewater treatment plant before joining DC Water three years ago. He's also no stranger to Bloom, having used it to topdress his lawn and incorporate into his garden, in addition to helping get Bloom into Ace hardware stores in his community.

This spring, he left his position as an operator at Blue Plains to take on a new role with the Bloom team, which entails everything from scheduling trucks and managing blends to helping set up a fruit orchard showcasing Bloom's benefits. "My job is so dynamic, and Bloom is such a great product. I'm happy to be here!" says Jimmy.

Photo of the Month: Capitol Sports Fields

This soccer field at Carroll County Community College is pretty enough to be a screensaver, thanks to a green-up from Bloom. 

The field is one of many in the DMV area under the expert care of Capitol Sports Fields, a family owned company in Hyattsville, Maryland, specializing in both natural and artificial sports turf.

Farmer Resource Available on Bloom vs. Chicken Litter

Many Maryland farmers take advantage of the Eastern Shore's prolific chicken production operations to fertilize their farms with chicken litter, a natural, recycled by-product. Fresh Bloom has increasingly taken foothold as a low-cost, low-odor alternative to chicken litter, but how do the two products compare? It's hard to find data on the question, so we've put together a resource page providing a side by side comparison to help.

If you're considering Bloom for the farm, reach out with any questions!
