Oops, the pic you were looking at was Cycads and Cercis...Cycads are a little more tempermental.

What zone are you in Bonnie? Cercis is fairly hardy, as is the Opuntia. Zone 7 and up for the latter.

Bonnie i just stoped in to congraulate you on being featured . Your yard is amazing . i love all your photos . my yard needs more work but that will come along in time . I really like the saphire blue Irisis . i have been thinking of putting some blue irisis on each side of the porch door i have white phlox on each side of the porch and red miniture roses comming up between the phlox and the door . all surrounded by snow on the mountain .but i am not sure if the irisis will look right . so again CONGRATULATIONS . P.S. any suggestions on how to get the asparagus stalks to thicken up . mine is just spindly and it has been there for years . long before i moved in .

Seed Life Chart, how long will they last?

Posted on March 22, 2012 at 4:46am 0 Comments

Okayy, not everyone thinks toads are beautiful, but they really arehelpful workers in the garden!

Every day, a single toad can eat around 100 beetles, ants, June bugs, grasshoppers, slugs, moths, sowbugs (roly poly) army worms and other pests.  That's around 3,000 a month!
