I'm a little confused about what fertilizer to use on my vegetable garden. I'm a newbie veggie gardener. I never had a sunny spot for a veggie garden before, but my new home has a garden space that the previous owners used. I tried looking it up but I've gotten suggestions of 10-10-10, 18-6-12, 19-5-9, and 21-7-14. I guess my question really is do I need higher nitrogen? or should it be even (10-10-10)Thanks ::)
I have a plot for a veggie garden that was used by the previous owners of the house I just bought. I'm in zone 5A - what fertilizer should I put down and till in before planting? I'm a newbie veggie gardener and just plan to start with a few plants to see how it goes this year.
the term "Landscaper" is used so loosely now, If you can own a fancy lawmower, gas sheers, blower with a decal on a truck you can call yourself a landscaper.
In my photos you can see where the neighbor landscapers butchered lilac bushes and stomped all over my plants.
I better not get started on this subject. :)
Down this garden path are 5 Pink Rhododendrons. The foliage is dark plum colored most of the year. The first time the landscaper planted them on the west side of the brick house and they started to rebel. We lost several but saved these and moved them to the east side under shade. We also learned that they don't like to be under a downspout.
Brooke, it could be. If so- I have no idea how it got there! lol
Is it a tree peony.
No idea. Anyone help me remember what I planted?
Thank you, Marti! That's exactly what it is! :) I looked up Star Magnolia (Magnolia Stellata) and the pictures looked exactly like my tree!!
It's so pretty. I hope it doesn't go terribly cold again!!
Susan - Looks like a Star Magnolia. I used to have one till too many freezes after blooms popped out killed it off. Blossoms don't like extremes of heat (short-lived bloom time) or cold, but it's really pretty when it's blooming.
