I had a silver maple sapling come up in one of my flower baskets when I brought them inside last fall..It stayed alive in the basket all winter and even had 2 little leaves on it. This spring, I transplanted it in a 5 gallon bucket making sure to get all of the roots even the tap root. It's doing wonderful and now has at least 10 leaves on the top of the "knitting needle" sized stem (or should I say trunk?). It's definitely getting taller but I'm not seeing much growth in the
circumference. Is there something I can do to help it along? I really don't want to lose it as it's an offspring of a very large Maple we recently had to cut down due to disease. Thank you for any advice you can give me.
It was a beautiful morning, so my son and I got our hands dirty. While I planted flowers, he rearranged the newly purchased vegetables awaiting their designated place in the garden. Little did I know that he apparently has an eye for floral design. I call it Fire Red Tomato Truck, but do you have a better suggestion?
I've always wanted a potting bench and when I found this one last year at Big Lots my potting bench dreams came true! The problem is that now it looks so pretty all dressed up with mason
jars and a vintage galvanized bucket and cute little wooden boxes that I can hardly stand the thought of getting it all dirty. I know I must actually put it to good use (you know that whole form meets function thing) and that it is very handy for doing actual potting. But, sometimes I wish it could just stay like this forever! ~Vanessa #MayGarden
