"In the long run it's easier to get the soil in balance and plant companions that attract beneficial insects, then the plants will take care of themselves. Otherwise it will be a constant battle. I do little more than deadhead my…"

David Austin's William Shakespeare vs. William Shakespeare 2000

Has anyone grown both to know the difference? If so, would you recommend one over the other, and if so, why? Even if you have only grown one, what was your experience? I'm trying to determine which I would like to order.See More

"The bottom is some sort of aloe. The middle looks similar to Frithia, so may be related."

"They are, but some are terribly invasive. At the bot garden I worked at, there was one area that it was a constant battle. There are a few of the varieties I have on this page."

Garden Girl replied to Stacie Porterfield's discussion mums ...blooming.....ALREADY in the group Zone 5
"If you haven't let them bloom, only bud, you can.  I had to do that last year, too, and they did fine.  It may even if they have bloomed; I just don't have experience with that."

What kind of gardening do you like to do?
Mostly perennial (cottage garden style) and veggie. I used to work at a botanical garden. Now I work for those who can no longer maintain their gardens alone, but want to continue to enjoy them.
How much time do you spend a week on average in your garden when weather permits?
Everyday, as much as possible.

I'm a gardening junkie and love to learn, help and teach others in the garden. Check out my blog, Garden Rambles to see more about me and my website, The Obsessed Gardener to see my plants!

I just literally got 'little lime' hydrengia's this year.  We had an additon made to our landscaping and those were the first ones i bought.  I have never grown hydrengia's, kinda scared.  But thought i'd give it a try.  So far so good though :)

Have you been to Munsinger Gardens here in Saint Cloud?  I live on that road a few blocks down.  It is the ONLY thing to see in Saint Cloud:)

Welcome to Garden-Share! The Group page is a great way to meet other gardeners and get started on Garden-Share - congrats for joining so many groups!  You'll get the most out of them if you interact with other gardeners, make comments, and ask questions.

Also, there are Videos to watch (how-to, humor), Blogs to read (informative, entertaining), Photos to look at (beautiful, unusual, inspiring), and new friends to meet. If you have photos (or videos) of your garden, please share them - I'd love to see photos of your garden!
