Keryn, USDA Zone 10 Australia replied to Hildegarde Fischer's discussion Orchid-Cymbidium in the group Orchids
"I have no problems with cyms, they flower during my winter outside, the whole plant stays out all year. They are very well shaded by trees from the hot sun in summer, and when the trees loose their leaves in winter they flower. My winter temps never…"

"I'm not an expert on orchids but we put our mostly cymbidiums outside for the summer, under a shade tree and left them out  until the fall nights were dipping into the 40 degrees F.  We brought them in and put most of them in a glass…"

"The Cymbidiums do need cold temps to set the buds. We live in Virginia and we leave ours outside.  They can take it down to 35 and prefer that for setting buds.  Our plants bloom every year.  Feeding is also very important.  But…"

"Hi Hildegrarde found out that is the kind I have. And no blooms on mine yet either. Think they bloom in the winter. You can take them outside from what I understand like Christmas cacti."

Harry Larsen replied to Hildegarde Fischer's discussion Wisteria vine in the group Gardener's Lounge
"I read that the seeds are poisonous, so if you use them for craft purposes, make sure they cannot dislodge and be eaten. Also, some say the leaves have toxins, you may want to use gloves when working around this plant."

Dwarf fruit trees

Posted on October 29, 2009 at 6:55am 0 Comments

This spring I started a Brown Turkey fig & a dwarf peach tree in pots. They grew quite well. I 'm wondering if any of my Zone 5 gardeners have any sugestions as to what I should to to winterize them. I would like to just bring them in the garage. My garden center told me to plant them in a sunny location in my garden. However the first of Dec. I am going in to have both my knees replaced. Right now it is rather difficult to do any digging.

This is John Wagner and it will work till about june than I use Bayer incest and diesese control once every 6 weeks till the end of season, Till today I still got roses blooming on the knockout rose. The sulfer spray kills the over wintering blackspot and later the Bayer protects against bugs and blackspot too, I used to have a strong case of blackspot here in the rose garden till sulfer spray!, Happy gardening John

Just bring your geraniums inside and plant them in pots. Place them in sunny windows and don't overwater. They bloom all winter and are ready to be placed into the garden next season. Best, Kathy
