Planting Fall Bulbs
2008-09-10 10:00:00
When it comes to planting fall bulbs not only do you get the benefits of gardening you get a mini life-lesson for free because if you prepare well, lay a good foundation and take some time to plan ahead you'll get the rewards down the line.Just when think you can't take any more winter and you're emerging from cold and darkness, up will pop these pretty little flowers and suddenly life is okay once again.I know very little about gardening in warm climates but if you live where the ground freezes I can guide you through the simple steps to guarantee some rewards for your labors.1. Start thinking now. Right now. In Anchorage if you want flowers in the spring you'll need to plant bulbs in the fall by the last week of September at the absolute latest. This is probably a little earlier than for places like Utah, Montana or Minnesota but it never hurts to plan ahead.2. Decide what you want to plant. This will of course be limited by your climate but even here in zone 2 we can get...

Earth Day: Planting mangroves, saving lives
2008-05-11 10:51:00
The 9 o'clock sun on May 3 began to burn down on those assembled at Angke-Kapuk Nature Recreation Park (TWA Angke-Kapuk) in North Jakarta. The air was becoming hotter and hotter, but this did not wilt the high spirits of the hundreds who had come from the Regina Caely Church Community in Pantai Indah Kapuk and from the Telkom Vocational Senior High School) in Daan Mogot, West Jakarta, to listen to Murni's briefing on mangrove-planting techniques.Sri Lela Murniwati, 64, who is known simply as Ibu Murni, has been working at the TWA Angke-Kapuk since 1998, when she received a decree by then forestry minister Djamaluddin Suryohadikusumo appointing her to manage the 99-hectare coastal park.Murni's entry to reforestation is unique. One day when she visited Benoa, Bali, she saw the lush vegetation of mangroves growing there, and was inspired her to green an area.She began looking for a place in Bali that needed reforestation, but encountered several obstacles in the process. She thus sw...
Planting Stones and (Un)finished Jobs
2008-05-08 15:46:00
We made a little border for the plants that run along side the edge of the house. Because it hardly gets any sun we aren't going to invest in any more plants there since they probably won't make it. Instead we are thinking about putting down wood-chips. But it's still up for debate. It might not look like much but considering it used to look like this (see below), it's pretty big improvement.Also, Alex finally tackled the blocks that were on top of the garden wall. He had taken one or two down last fall and then decided to pretend they weren't there since it was a very, very frustrating job. Everytime he tried to crack them and take them down, parts of the wall would start coming off. However, he finally got them off today and there are only a couple stones that need fixing. I can't find a 'before' shot because all our old photos are on my old hard-drive, which is still at the computer hospital in intensive care.

Garden Planting
2008-05-05 06:00:00
The older I get, the more I kick myself about having such a high-maintenance yard and garden. My kids are plenty old enough to do the mowing, but they are still too short. But Princess learned to use the new lightweight electric string trimmer (which is less powerful but more reliable than the old gas trimmer), and that’s a big help. We don’t have a tiller, and the guy with the tractor is never in a hurry to plow. So for early planting, I built a small raised garden with concrete blocks and filled it with soil and compost. I planted carrot and broccoli seeds. Guess what came up? Pumpkins, sunflowers, and tomatoes. Looks like my compost didn’t cook itself thoroughly over the winter! But the plowman came Friday, so I’ll be out in the big garden putting out tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, and corn for the next couple of weeks.

Boomers Planting a Debt Bomb
2008-04-30 16:37:00
“The biggest U.S. financial crisis isn’t the housing crunch. It’s the government debt bomb being planted by baby boomers to explode in the faces of their children and grandchildren.” This is an interesting article in the Baltimore Sun. It really has given me a great deal to think about. We have certainly created quite a challenge that Gen Y will inherit (along with trying to pay off student loans, pay for healthcare, housing and the escalating price of food and fuel). The article points to our $9 trillion in debt, which is going to leave us with very little resources to address our major concerns surrounding healthcare and education. We need to get on this today! Start getting involved and doing your part to help out.  Contact your political leaders, and by all means…if you think a certain candidate can help the economy, please get out and vote in your primaries and for the national election. I don’t believe it’s fair for us to just sit...
Planting Zones
2008-04-30 04:24:00
Planting zones in the United States, which are also known as Hardiness Zones, can be thought of as the rate of survival to the plant life in that particular region during cold periods, such as winter. In effect it is the survival rate ability of a plant during the winter months that can fruitfully live on into the next growing season. The zones were first developed by the United States Department of Agriculture, or the USDA. After the USDA developed these zones, they were subsequently adopted elsewhere. They are categorized according to the mean of the lowest temperature recorded each winter, termed the "average annual minimum temperature". The USDA Hardiness Zone Map divides North America into 11 separate zones; each zone is 10°F warmer (or colder) in an average winter than the adjacent zone. Probably the most important consideration in determining what garden and landscape plants you can grow in your garden is whether or not they will be able to survive the climate in your grow...

Alice's article about planting for climate change has been published in this months Garden Design Journal. Read more about bimodal plants that can ride the storm.With changing weather patterns, designers may need to consider a palette of plants that are able to cope with more than one extreme.The capricious weather we have been enduring over the last few years has highlighted the need for a new approach to our planting choices. In the past we could identify gardens as 'boggy' or 'dry' with some ease, and then plant them accordingly, but things are becoming less and less predictable. Weather extremes of flood and drought can both occur in the same garden within a short period: often without warning. If we can no longer rely on the accepted weather cycles of previous years, we must take action to adapt our planting designs to cope with the unpredictable impact our volatile weather may have on growing conditions.In recent years we have all become experts in drought tolerant planti...
Tree planting and growing - an earth friendly and joyful task
2008-04-24 05:14:00
A wee bit of an avocado plant to a now grown one:-) right in the middle of our backyard.My humble contribution to earth day is attested by these photos of fruit trees as well as plants I was able to grow in our backyard, starting almost six years ago.There's the jackfruit tree, photo of which is at the left above this line. Then the next is my favorite forget-me not flower plant. Makes me feel like a real mother plant Mom whenever I prune her unwieldy leaves. Then there's our squash plant, where we are now able to harvest its flowers playing its nutritious role everytime we prepare our green salad recipe. Then at the corner of the yard, two other avocado plants, now also fully grown but taller than what we have in the middle of the yard.It feels lovely to see them plants grow each day, pruning and watering them just like you 'do' for a child.Happy Earth Day! Better Late than never.Cheers!
Planting Lilac Trees
2008-04-22 02:32:00
On Sunday my son and I planted three lilac trees for my wife. She loves lilac trees and we've been trying to decide what to plant along the west side of the house. That side of the house has two retaining walls the step the land along the "walkout" basement.The lilac trees we bought are about 36 inches tall with a root ball about 10 inches in diameter. The directions recommend a hole about 2 to 3 times larger than the root ball. Our lot is VERY sandy, in fact there is about 5 inches or so of loam on top of what I call beach sand. The good thing about this is lilacs like a well drained soil. So, we dug the holes and then filled the bottom with some good loam.Lilac trees grow best in a soil with a pH between 6.0 and 7.0. Unfortunately our soil has a pH of about 5.3 (see previous post on soil testing). After I put some soil in the bottom of the hole I applied some dolomitic lime to help "sweeten" the soil and raise the pH so it's not quite as acidic.Then we planted the trees making s...

More Planting...Lawley Green Space Group
2008-04-14 11:11:00
Saturday saw more planting being done by the Lawley Green Space Group. We concentrated on the new wildflower area, that is down towards the bridge that crosses over the brook. Virtually all of the 300 wildflower plugs have now been planted , shared between the Orchard and this area. The post that have been supporting the existing trees in the area have been removed, as they are now large enough to support themselves, and cut up to make the edging for the bed.3 more trees have also been added, 2 crab apples and a flowering cherry. the bed has also been split into three areas by paths that lead you down to the brook. One of the trees has been planted into the beds with a view of giving all year round interest. The path takes you to the fence in front of the brook, where you can watch and listen to the stream running into the brook. We got permission from English Partnership to clear out the brook so we could make it into a nice wildlife feature as you walk over the bridge. We have rem...
The Root Of All Things: Planting Roses Properly
2008-04-12 04:55:00
Okay. You've bought your roses and they're all lined up, ready for planting. You've amended your soil and it is just waiting to receive your roses. All you need to do is stick them in the ground, right? Not quite. You don't want to rush this part... planting your roses properly will ensure they get off to a good start. You may have bare root roses, a rose that is already in a pot or a rose that is not established. A non-established rose is a plant that does not have enough root growth to hold the root ball together. If you have either a bare root or a potted rose, the method of planting is very similar. By now you've probably decided where you want to plant your rose. First you want to dig a hole. Be sure to locate your roses in a place where they will get at least six hours of direct sunlight and that the soil has good drainage. You may want to test the drainage before you plant your rose. Dig a hole one or two feet deep and fill it up with water. After two hours, if there is ...

Information on Planting Goji Berries
2008-04-07 02:01:00
The Goji plant is quite hardy. It likes full sun except in hot climates. What else would you expect from a plant that originated in the Himalayas? Hopefully you’re not in a hurry for the berries. The shrubs don’t usually bear fruit until about the third year. But you can use the leaves in a salad while you wait. You’ll know your shrubs are about to bear fruit because you’ll start to get small purple/white trumpet flowers from summer until the first freeze. You can get your Goji shrub to become more bushy by nipping buds so that it forms more branches. A wide variety of animals such as rabbits, birds and deer also like to snack on Goji berries . Beware of the tomato worm and other insects. Tags: growing goji, goji berry plants, goji berries, gogi, goji, goji berry

Seed Planting Tips
2008-03-24 04:06:00
Any reliable seed house can be depended upon for good seeds; but even so, there is a great risk in seeds. A seed may to all appearances be all right and yet not have within it vitality enough, or power, to produce a hardy plant. If you save seed from your own plants you are able to choose carefully. Suppose you are saving seed of aster plants. What blossoms shall you decide upon? Now it is not the blossom only which you must consider, but the entire plant. Why? Because a weak, straggly plant may produce one fine blossom. Looking at that one blossom so really beautiful you think of the numberless equally lovely plants you are going to have from the seeds. But just as likely as not the seeds will produce plants like the parent plant. So in seed selection the entire plant is to be considered. Is it sturdy, strong, well shaped and symmetrical; does it have a goodly number of fine blossoms? These are questions to ask in seed selection. If you should happen to have the opportunity to v...

Gardening Throughout The Year - A Seasonal Planting Guide For Beginners
2008-03-06 06:42:00
Multi-Seasonal Gardening in One SeasonGrowing a garden can, at times, be almost an art form. This is because it is not always as simple as planting something and letting it grow. Even though it would work to do that, many people understand that careful planning and consistent effort are required in order to grow a garden that will produce consistently throughout the growing season. This would be true of both a vegetable garden and a flower garden. Either one will need to be planned out and cared for in order to have real success with your gardening. So what all is needed in order to make sure that your garden produces well throughout the year?For the vegetable garden, you will want to make sure that you plant according to the growing season, especially if your growing season is short. I know that when I had a garden in Pennsylvania my growing season was from April to October, but there was a wide variety of types of plants that could be grown during that time. In early spring I woul...

Planting Container Plants Outdoors
2008-02-25 18:27:00
Outdoor plants are great for patios, porches, decks and rooftop container gardens. Lined up on stairs or balanced on railings, outdoor plants can offer both a wide variety of color most of the year. Whether potted in urns, baskets, and barrels or on top of pedestals, a large number of outdoor plants provide different backgrounds, textures and arrangement possibilities throughout the year, according to blooming season.Many varieties of plants, flowers and shrubs prefer lots of sunlight. Some of these types of plants include, but are certainly not limited to:? Azalea? Bougainvillea? Agave varieties? Clematis climber vines? Ficus? Jasmine? Morning GloriesEach of the above mentioned varieties will offer a rainbow of color for your outdoor container garden and will soak up the sun without wilting if care is taken to water adequately. Many such plants thrive in full sunlight, and some are even drought resistant. Of course, depending on the climate where you live, you can find dozens of va...

Could Creation of Universe Be Similar to The Analogy of Farmer Planting See
2008-02-19 20:43:00
Could the image of the creator planting seeds be similar to the anology of the image of a farmer planting seeds. For example in this scenerio to start, lets say maybe there are only two seeds. The first seed would have been the universe itself, which we are told started out as a very small thing, much smaller than a mustard seed. Yet it has grown into a giant tree, that all the stars and planets can find shelter in. Then lets say the second seed would be the first microorganisms planted on our planet, billions of years ago. Then if the concept of a front-loaded evolution could turn out to be correct, then this could all be the direct design intervention that may have been necessary. And so from this tiny seed grew the huge tree of life that we see around us today.So perhaps the proper analogy of the creators action in the universe is that of a farmer, planting seeds in his field.

Planting Rye Grass For Easy Green Winter Lawns
2008-02-16 06:08:00
For many locations, the end of autumn and the approach of winter is time to start thinking about planting rye grass. Rye grass, which comes in both annual and perennial types, provides a beautiful green turf that grows quickly and can be lively when ordinary grasses are dormant for the winter. It also is one of the earliest spring grasses and is also used for temporary ground covers or to augment other grasses.Many grass varieties are difficult and ornery to grow. However, rye grass is easy to plant and grow. Seed the soil and water it. That's about all there is to growing rye grass. It can be hand sown, applied using spreaders, or by broadcasting the seed, all with little trouble. Rye grass grows best the more contact it has with the soil, so for best results prepare ahead a little.Ground covering you no longer desire, should be cut closely, destroyed with herbicides or burned. Herbicides (week killers) require careful following of the directions. There will be a waiting period be...
Sunnydale, California Resident Planting Fake Ron Paul Fundraiser Links
2008-02-14 01:00:00
A small group of people (or one person posing as multiple people - hard to say) has sparked a widespread fundraising scheme that has reached Ron Paul supporter websites all over the net. It's called Ron Paul Racing, and an AT&T internet user from Sunnydale, California is working away, using screennames like ritsystemz, Beer Can Bob, Layin Rubber, NASCAR fan, and others, planting messages on Ron Paul supporter websites asking for donations, which friendly Paulites initially ate up as support for presidential candidate Ron Paul. Except for one thing: the money doesn't really go to Ron Paul.
