"I think that if you pinch them now, the flowers will be a little late. If you don't they will be finished blooming long before the fall. I cut my mums way back, maybe to 4- 6 inches tall. Each time you cut them the stems will branch, so my…"
"Hi there. I'm catching up with emails and came across your question. I'm a garden professional who cares for customer's dahlias, as well as my own. In fall, before frost I label the dahlias (I use landscape tape) with the variety name…"
your containers are fantastic! I read they're mostly for your clients so I have a question.What to do with people that don't keep up with watering their pots??Other than going to their house every other day and doing it myself!It's frustrating to me to do these beautiful arrangements and then see them all sad and toasted looking....
Corin, I have a question for you since you are in the business...I have a problem with identifying a flower. If you go to my home page an click on photos you'll see one picture of small white flowers. The picture isn't very good in quailty because the flowers are growing in rocks. When they first bloom they hang over like a little bell and then when they open they almost look like cosmos.. Do you have any idea what they might be? I have quests ask me all the time what they are and I just can't find them. Thanks, Karen
Corin, I'm sorry I'm pretty new to this site and haven't really figured out my way around yet. I just saw you slide show. Your gardens and arrangements are really amazing. Your dahlias are awesome. I'm VERY impressed.
Thank you for the comment on my picture. Actually the pic. is from last fall...the colors haven't turned that much yet. They are just starting but for me it's way to soon. Door County is called the New England of the Midwest. It is a beautiful place to visit....and to live. It's a very artsie place. Lots of gardening also. Come visit some time. You won't be disappointed....now I sound like I work for the Camber of Commerce! Karen
"Thanks Tammie, yes I like I like to color co-ordinate and the brighter the colors the better. The hardest colored plants to find are a true red, then the next hardest is a true blue. The red flower here is a geranium."
"No Matha not really, they both smell divine. It depends on your climate to which will grow the best. The ground growers like a very cold winter, the tree peony grow better for me in a warmer climate."
"Hi Clare and Linda, we even heard about the big expected snow storm you were to get in the USA.
So glad it did not happen for you both. It does look so pretty and crisp white, but I,m glad I,m nit feeling the cold.
We are having a much milder summer…"
