I"m asing zone 9 people if anyone grows iris, I've had mine for one year and not even a bud in sight. I have not fertilized them, any suggestions
Thanks Bob..rabbit food? Wow, I didn't know that could be used. I've tried growing knockouts but, with all the beautiful colors out there I'll buy one. The ones I have are a DA and a Grandiflora. They are just now producing rose buds. I'm sure they'll be small this year. I'm hoping to see bigger blooms next year. I will definitely try rabbit and alfalfa. Awesome!
Hi Jessie ... ignore all the hype about knockouts not needing to be deadheaded and/or pruned back. I cut mine bac by about 1/4 evertime a stem finishes blooming and they come right back vigorously. No need to worry about 5 leaves or anything like that...just cut it off. Add some rabbit food or alfalfa meal from time to time and they will bloom all year very nicely. :)
Thanks everyone :) Some of my spring plants are drying out so it's time to replace them, lol. I like both penta and lantana. I'm trying roses for the first time this year and so far they are doing well.
Jesse, I like lantana also. It is drought tolerant, full sun, comes in different colors and attracts butterflies.
Coleus for the shade and dark red pentas and knockout roses for the sunny areas now throuh September, Jessie. There are some others but those bloom pretty much all the time and give good color. ..Bob
Hi everyone, do any of you have summer flower favorites that can tolerate Florida sunshine and heat? I always find myself having to water plants every other day just to keep them from wilting in July and August. Thanks!
Hi John Jardin, I saw your jungle and saw somehthing I am quite interested in I collect oriental blue and white and in your feb 14 2011 there is an oriental man in blue and white, is there someplance i would be able to purchase this?
Thanks for all the info on keeping cats away, i am using pine cones and those black plastic trays from the nursery to put all of your plants on to carry to your car. No cats in 2 weeks, cross my fingers
My Jasmine seems to have survived the storms. Some others weren't as lucky.
