"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…"
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
"Agreed! Heucheras are tough little plants and the different colors they come in are so pretty. And to me, a big bonus is that they seem to be critter-resistant here. I love the Limelight heuchera, too. What a great idea to pair it with the Peach…"
"Thanks so much for the feedback, Grant. It means a lot coming from such a knowledgeable gardener as you! Yes, all of our bleeding hearts go dormant as soon as it starts to get hot. Last year, I overplanted these with coleus. Will probably do the…"
"Thanks Grant. The solar lighthouse was a gift and at night, the top lights up and spins around. Regarding the edging, we make the hard shovel edge once in the spring and then maybe once around August and it stays pretty nice."
"Hi Grant, it sure is a magnolia (little gem). The caption was meant for my picture of the pink lilly. I don't know how it ended up on this picture. I wish I could share the aroma coming from this flower! "
"Makes me want to say awwww. . . My clematis is just two years old & 2/3 of it got whacked by the weed eater. I did it myself :( It's the montanii (small pink blooms)so I know it will be huge next year. The first one I purchased had…"
