When peninsula gardeners gear up towards another season of growing, many envision colorful masses of wildflowers, meticulously tended planter boxes or even giant heads of cabbage tagged with a state fair blue ribbon. Whichever growing season area they pursue, any gardener will admit that despite the kaleidescope of colors or expanses of garden green they desire, their pursuit has a definite "dark side". Essentially, one of the key components to their ability to grow things - dirt.
Growing plants can look easy and in one sense it is simple. Take a seed and put it in the soil, add water and watch it grow. But to grow quality plants that produce at optimum performance is another story. Add to the challenges of growing in our Alaskan summer daylight, and the "dark side" of gardening becomes increasingly important.
The owners of Trinity Greenhouse, Ron & Kathy Sexton and Dan & Juli Sexton, focused their attention on developing a foundation to grow both their beloved plants as well as a successful business. Trinity Greenhouse began operation in 1976, and by 1992 the Sextons launched their specially blended potting mix "The Master's Mix" for sale to the general public.
Packaged onsite at their K-Beach location, Trinity Greenhouse also offers their potting soil to local gardeners on a year round basis. The Greenhouse is open seasonally, and is an enjoyable visit for even non_gardeners to enjoy.
