What are you best home and garden tips for the season? 
Jason Ramey, supervisor of sales support, answered the rest of the questions. He says: Take care of next year’s garden weeds now. Plant a thick cover crop of mixed greens (mustard, turnip, collard and kale) to keep weeds from taking over during the winter. Till them under in the spring to add a nitrogen boost to the soil. By mulching around the plants with leaves removed from the lawn you help yourself and your garden at the same time. The leaves eliminate the chore of weeding and prevent dirt from splashing up on the leaves, making them easier to prep for cooking. Leaves also add organic matter to the soil, keep the soil warm so that you can enjoy them most of the fall and winter months, and avoid going to waste in the landfill.

What are your featured items this season?
PSNC Energy's 0% financing on all natural gas logs are always the go to item this time of year. However, we are starting to see more interest in outdoor fire features that add warmth and ambiance on cool evenings. Fire is just magical. It is one of those things every generation has relied on for a basic human need. All my memories of people gathered around fires involve smiles, laughs and connecting with each other on a basic level. It will always be part of my patio entertainment.

What are your home or garden pet peeves?
Propane grills at a home with a natural gas meter! It’s more convenient to install the “spare” (and usually empty) tank on your grill while your food and guests wait?

What is the strangest client request you've ever received?
A blind man asked me to teach him how to operate his gas logs, and after about 20 minutes, he had it down pat! We had some great laughs while doing this and it was an awesome growth opportunity for me. I will never forget explaining the remote control’s functions, how many button presses and beeps to expect at each stage of operation, etc. After I repeated the whole thing several times, he turns to me, smiling, and says, “I can tell when they’re on because there is heat coming from the fireplace. I got that part.” What a laugh we had! I’ve never forgotten that day.

What is your favorite part about the home show?
New ideas that fit our lifestyle. Let’s face it: We are not California, New York or Chicago. We are unique for the same reasons those other places are, and it’s okay! “Southern Charm” is what makes us unique and the Southern Ideal Home Show keeps this in the mainstream of what is popular in other parts of the country.
