Welcome to Daddy Pete’s Plant Pleaser, where our mission is to help you grow…one plant, one garden, one business at a time.
As a company we continue to build upon the foundation that our owner, Alan Smith, has established with a passion for excellence, quality you can trust, great customer service, creative product design, and a spirit of innovation.
As a North Carolina Century Farm, we are committed to building upon our rich, farming heritage of knowing and cultivating the true value of a product that most people find useless: cow manure from dairy cows. We compost it to help you grow...one plant, one garden, one farm at a time.
As craftsmen of an American heritage brand, we continuously seek ways to improve our composting process; and we also find the best materials available to mix with our composted cow manure to create a full line of products that will help you grow…one plant, one garden, one lawn at a time.
As pioneer men and women cultivating your own lawns and gardens to grow your own fruits and vegetables, we offer recipes to help you bring your harvest from your garden…to your kitchen…to your dinner table.
So let your inner farm out…jump into our website and indulge in our knowledge. Come discover farming through the eyes of Daddy Pete’s. Timeless products…unparalleled quality…our goal is to become more and more creative, so that our creativity equals your increase.
If you weren’t able to plant your Fall vegetables in August, the month of September is still a great time to plant the following items: broccoli, cabbage, carrots, cauliflower, collard greens, lettuce, mustard greens, onions, radishes, spinach, and turnip greens. In addition, you can plant the following two new items for September: brussel sprouts and garlic. Daddy Pete’s Potting Mix and Daddy Pete’s Raised Bed Mix work well for planting these items. And for top dressing these same items, Daddy Pete’s Barnyard Fertilizer and Daddy Pete’s Organic Fertilizer are excellent ways to naturally fertilize your plants. If you are amending your existing soil, Daddy Pete’s Cow Manure and Daddy Pete’s Lawn & Garden Soil work as incredible soil amendments to your existing soil.
In addition to planting your Fall vegetables, don’t forget that September is a good month for transplanting perennials, planting Fall bulbs for next year, prepping and sowing lawns, patching lawns, and for taking soil samples to confirm the best method of fertilization for your lawn. You can also over-seed with rye grass for a green cover for the winter months. Daddy Pete’s Sandy Loam Top Soil is a great product for sowing and patching lawns; and Daddy Pete’s Barnyard Fertilizer is a natural pelleted fertilizer that is a safe way to fertilize your lawn, and it can be used in a spreader.
