Thank you so much. I'm from the Midwest and a garden-outside person. I planted, removed. and moved my flowers a round all the projects of my pool. But I hate to say it "very rich dirt". I know…"
I am a newbie for the group. I moved to Florida in October. I planted a large Sabel Palm and a trio Foxtail. With the cold weather we have for the winter i am worried some of the lower fronds are turning brown. Do I trim…"
"My choice of fragrance is "Sweet Autumn Clematis". It has small star like blooms and just grows like crazy. It has a clove smell and very frangrant. I tried to add the picture but it didn't work. I put it on each side of my swing…"
"Hey, I don't agree with GrovespiritZ11's advice! September is too soon...and you are better off planting your bulbs when you know that the weather is going to stay relatively cold. Say mid-october till the ground is too hard to digg! I…"
Yes we are still covered with snow, I use to live in Roscoe, Ill. for years but then moved up here I'm right on the borderline basically..we're in the same zone .By the way your Yorkie is adorable!!
Hey, I don't agree with GrovespiritZ11's advice! September is too soon...and you are better off planting your bulbs when you know that the weather is going to stay relatively cold. Say mid-october till the ground is too hard to digg! I don't get onto this site very often, too much time on FACEBOOK! You will want to fertilize with a bulb booster, especially if they are just being planted for the first time! If you haven't planted them yet, it is not too late!
Wow! That tree branch setup is very interesting! I have four bird feeders in my backyard, 3 with black sunflower seed and 1 with thistle seed. The birds that come, and they are many, perch on the small trees I planted nearby. Look at my personal page and you will see my yard.
I like the idea of the Bird sanctuary. My mom is a bird nut, that might be an idea for a good Christmas gift. Maybe do some research on plants that attract birds. She has an huge open area behind her that is on white river. This site is great, if you have anything you need to know about gardening, etc. Someone on here will have a great suggestion. There's something new to learn everyday.
I found your message in the email, but not anywhere else. I took a photo of the PA woods with a regular instamatic camera called a Cannon Power Point A540. I really like it, but i plan to get a more professional camera in the future.
"Unfortunately we lose them about November and can't grow much except with heat under lights until sun returns in March. Petunias especially need some heat to start them again in January here. A mild winter I can sometimes save one but…"
"Elizabeth, that one is Quasar. It's my first year with it and I think it's a winner! All these get various amounts of morning sun even though there's a tree above & in front, I still have to water them daily due to wilting by noon…"
"I water at least once every hot day and fertilize with water soluble at least once a week, sometimes more when temperatures and sun are full blast as they were in June and July. They do not get full south sun either---either east or west is what I…"
