The benefits of hydrating seeds in Authentic Haven Brand Natural Brew prior to planting increases germination. As you can see in the first photo North Carolina gardener Tom Mann is
soaking Camellia seeds prior to planting. Once planted he will continue to feed 100% natural nutrients to condition the soil. This allows the plants root system to absorb the nutrients needed to stimulate strong healthy root growth.
The second photo is a "side by side" seedlings on the left were sown and fed water and on the seedlings on the right were hydrated in Authentic Haven Brand Natural Brew prior to planting and then fed 100% natural nutrients. As you can see the seedlings on the right are heartier with fuller growth. read more http://www.manuretea.com
Had this old package sized mailbox so decided to repurpose it into a mini shed out at my vegie garden. Now everything I need is right at my fingertips and everything stays dry and clean! So many people ask me why there is a mailbox out in my garden!
If you live anywhere from the mid-Atlantic states south and west to Texas, oxblood lilies, Rhodophiala bifida, are an excellent way to add vivid pops of color to the garden at a time when
it is often looking tired and bedraggled. Related to the amaryllis, these natives of Argentina and Uruguay were introduced to gardens here when German immigrants in South America sent bulbs to compatriots who had immigrated to Texas. They are happiest in dappled shade, but handle heat and cold, drought and rain with aplomb. Louis the Plant Geek has an encyclopedic guide to their care and culture on his blog at: http://www.louistheplantgeek.com/a-gardening...
Yep, that's a 10 foot tall tree made out of different diameters of steel round rod complete with colored bottles my mom collected from friends and a few she purchased from the internet.
She estimates that it cost about $300 for materials. $150 for the metal and $150 for the colored bottles. Lots more about my mom's DIY bottle tree (and where the bottle tree tradition came from) on the ol' blog. #SummerStyle
