We just (finally!) started a gardening blog. Yes, it is long overdue.
What’s on your gardening mind?
Having problems with my crape myrtles blooming for shot period and half blooming at the same time. Some time they get white spots on the leaves . Help, I love my crape myrtles.
Is it true that you can just put a stalk of a lilac in the ground and it will grow?
I appreciated the information about the Trumpet tree. I bought a small green leaf at a grocery store for 25 cents (the label was gone and it was end of season) I have never had so much fun, watching something grow into what I now have on my patio. Not quite 2 meters high, with beautiful peach-yellow blossoms. BUT it is getting cold where I live so I desperately need to know if I need to find a green house for it over the winter or can I leave it out side? It gets down to maybe 10 degrees Centigrad on occasion, but only for a few days at a time. We have some snow for a couple of months but it never lasts long because the temperature is more often around zero (32 Fahrenheit) Help! What do I do?
I’m looking to plant lilac in my front yard and it does get poison ivy there is it possible to plant the lilac and it not become over grown with poison ivy?
You need to knockout the poison ivy. Your local garden store should have a herbicide that is effective agaist Poison ivy. I have used it, and it works.
I wold kill th epoison ivy first. FOr more on growing Lilacs, see: http://www.gardenersnet.com/lilac.htm
Would it be ok to re-plant my 3 year old cherry tree now? There is blossom on it!
Spring is a great time to replant trees and shrubs. Dig deep and wide to get as many roots as possible. You might lost the blossom. But, if you wait until next year, you risk losing many more blossoms.
