Orchids

Did you know...that you should never plant an orchid directly into a metal or glazed pot??  Orchids leaves and roots are extremely sensitive to those materials and your orchids will not flourish in them, or even worse die.Always plant the orchid in a plastic or non glazed clay pot, then put that in your decorative pot.See More

"Joan, if your vine looks like the leaves on these castor bean plants, then it probably is a Virginia Creeper.  The other plant that has a leaf like this is a wild strawberry, but it would have runners like a cultivated strawberry plant does,…"

Hi Rita... You have a beautiful slideshow on Garden-Share. Spring is here, looking forward to more of your lovely garden pics. I tried the Castor Bean, no luck with sprouts. I planted the seeds in February since  our winter turned out to be a warm season. I will check again in a week to see if anything sprouted... Happy Gardening !
