how to plant it, I found a video that said to put it into the ground sorta lying on its side but then pull it up into the upright position. Said the part underground would form roots and send up new plants (I think that what's she said). Shown here is a screen shot from the video showing how she's lying part of it down into a long hole in the ground. She also said to put some bone meal into the planting hole to produce more tomatoes instead of more green parts. Ideas on whether any of this is a good idea?
together into this longer planter. They've lived outside all spring thru fall on my shady deck for years and have always done well. But look what happened this year. The now brownish and not-so-pretty areas were new growth, I believe. What do you suppose made this happen? Nothing bad is happening to them right now but I want to make sure it doesn't.
I need some suggestions regarding some larger low-light indoor plants. I seem to be able to find plenty of indoor plants that require a good bit of light, but not very many low-light. So far, I have only purchased a Chinese Evergreen. Which ones have you all had the best luck with/your favorites etc? Thanks ahead of time!
This plant sheds its leaves in winter and in May bears new leaves then buds then these white flowers with yellow centers. It is a perennial and very hardy. This shrub is very old and does not need pruning.
When I bought my 1880 Victorian home two years ago, I grumbled about the invasive climbers the previous owner had planted to grow up the porch (a wisteria and a trumpet vine!). But I
became accustomed to the constant pruning required and love the charm they add - particularly when they are in bloom. I'm now getting the house painted, and they need to be removed - at least temporarily. Because both are so agressive, I strongly suspect that if I cut them back, they will eventually return...but have concerns I may lose one or both. Any advice??
