Mike-I did check it out and it looks wonderful-Have you checked out my "Sage Gardening Tips" group? My thing is roses and irises. I created the group to have a place where I (amd others) could offer their expertise-also those who had questions could come and post their questions. I have a couple of great Master Gardeners write articles on it.
If you'd like to create a discussion about your zero-scape-you could leave a link to your web-site. Think about it. You could offer a lot to our members.
Hi Mike, nice to find someone here from California. I had my pond cleaned as it was almost toxic from so much algae. The pond is fairly large and we had numerous water lillies, which were removed in the cleaning process. We had lots of tree frogs leaving their black eggs all over the lily pads which I thought was killing the lilies, but the frogs are gone and where once the lily pads filled the pond, they are now sparse and getting smaller and smaller. My pond cleaning lady says it is the normal course, but w/o the liliy pads providing the only shade I am afraid the fish will die. Should I just replace the lilies and is this the season to do so? Judging from your pictures, we have many of the same plants you can view mine on http://sbgardening.ning.com under Terri. Also, I have several Zwartkopf planted by the previous owner, but over time they have become tall and spindly. A few times I have beheaded and replanted them successfully, I am considering trying it again. Also, I have two Proteas which are doing great, but I am hesitate to cut the flowers as I have read they are susceptible to disease, should I use a tar on the cut part of the stem??
"Thank you Clare :)
Believe it or not, it's just organics.
Early Spring: Corn gluten (This is a pre-emergent weed control)
Early Summer: Alfalfa pellets, also used as small animal food (Slow-release Nitrogen)
"Lorraine, this is the first year we've planted tulips in a long time. We gave up on them many years ago because the squirrels would always dig up and eat the bulbs and if any did manage to grow, the deer would eat them. We got around those two…"
