I have a large amount of seashells from the beach. Would like to add to my windchime collection as well as get additional ideas from you crafty folk (except a lamp). Any ideas and how do I make the holes in the shells without damaging them?
WHAT ARE SOME GOOD GARDENING PROJECTS FOR THOSE OLD CLAY PIPES THAT WERE USED FOR SEWAGE OR WATER PIPES. i HAVE BEEN GIVEN 6 OR 8 OF THESE AND AM THINKING ABOUT STANDING THEM IN ROCKS IN A CONTAINER AND PLANTING SOMETHING IN THEM.
Here is the finished product from all the suggestions I received as to what color to paint my shutters. These pictures were taken during a dreary day, but it never cleared up, so I'm
posting these anyway. I actually took the advice of some members and printed the pictures I posted and tried different paper scrapes of each color we were considering. For my husband and myself, it was hands down black. hope you can see them!
I keep posting pictures of this slope, but can't seem to do it. The pictures do not tell the whole slope, believe me. I need retention walls and some plantings. Sometime think I should
take out all the trees...but there are dogwoods back there and is shady during the summer. Looking at other scenes of slopes on our site and they are gorgeous!. How do I get started> Remember there are just the two of us and no machinery. Just hard workers.
When is the best time to snip cuttings for rooting? I have had the strangest luck with all sorts of things. The Angel Trumpets that I would root in the fall, I now find that the top
growths root in water just as well during the spring, summer, etc. Also, how long should something be left in the water to root. My dwarf gardenias that I rooted in water grew long and bushy roots, but when I transplanted them into their own little pots, some did not make it. Also, I have waited until this month to transplant last year's cuttings into the ground outside. But am scared that frost my kill them. They are heavily mulched, but what exactly is the time period that a rooted plant like gardenia and angel trumpet should be(1) removed from the rooting medium, kept segregated in little plastic pots, then introduced into the yard. I really like propagation!
Mu husband and I located a business where parking lot was being chewed into oblivion and brought the pieces home and made a walkway. We even placed stone statue with under-lighting in the middle to memorialize our son. This is mostly in the shade bur sure would like to have blooming plants in the center. Along the walk we planted dwarf gardenias.
