Then, of course, there are host plants, such as milkweed and rabbitbrush, which provide egg-laying sites and food for the caterpillars that eventually…

Want a garden full of lush plants? Learn the proper way to water — not too … – The Times-Picayune

Posted: Friday, June 20, 2014

So far this summer, we haven’t had to deal with drought. In fact, we have had more issues due to too much rain, rather than too little. Excessively wet soil combined with high temperatures can create stressful, and potentially destructive, conditions for bedding plants, perennials, vegetables and shrubs. After it rains, the soil is saturated; pore spaces that usually hold air are filled with water. Normally, gravity quickly pulls the excess…

Surround tomatoes – and all greenhouse crops – with tagetes. Ideally plant these in the ground and add hanging baskets full of them, too. This will help protect the tops and base of the tomato plants from whitefly. 3 Time for Florence Many of us sow Florence fennel too early – in spring.

Armchair gardening – Glens Falls Post-Star

Posted: Thursday, June 19, 2014

I have an admiration for home gardeners. They look so relaxed as they tend their rows of plants, weeding and nurturing the soil. As summer progresses, so does their commitment to the fruit and vegetables in their charge. Battling bugs, birds and blight, they toil through the summer months in hopes of a bountiful harvest. By the end of the season, they are paid with a delicious reward, if Mother…
