  • How to keep dogs from diging in your flowers. I've found a solution!

    I'm so happy, I found a way to keep Roxie from digging up everything I plant! A friend of mine told me to put some of their poo around the plant and b/c dogs won't dig in their own poo they will consequently leave the plant alone. It works!! I… More

  • Is this what I think it is?

    I rescued some plants from Walmart yesterday & this is one of them. I THINK it's a bromeliad, but not sure. Poor thing was completely dryed out. I brought her home, re-potted her in some good soil, & gave her a big drink of water. This morning she was standing… More

  • The J.Beetles Will Not Eat List.

    I came across this list and thought I would share it. I consider it a general guideline because some of the plants listed have been attacked by the beasties. For instance, I know that petunias and dogwoods have been affected by them here in my area. Sorry for the long… More

  • Don't know

    I don't know if what I have constitutes a cottage or not. My son says it's wildly random and it drives my daughter crazy because she likes order. I had started out with the intentions of a formal garden, (I had never gardened flowers before) somewhere over the years it… More

  • Repotting during the summer?

    I believe it's time to replant my gardenia in a larger pot, but I wasn't sure if doing that in the summer is a bad idea? I know that planting anything in our AZ heat isn't a smart thing to do and can sometimes kill the plant. Do the rules… More

    My gardenia's leaves are yellow and dropping off. I read somewhere it was a lack of iron. Anyone have any other ideas? I have one planted under a very large Crape Myrtle tree. (1st picture if they come out right)The other one is in the front flower bed and gets… More

    I live in west central texas and my gardenias are looking horrible. Can anyone give me some advice on saving them? I tried to post a picture of the gardenia but it will not load here. More

  • Gardenia

    Gardenias like acid soil, so fertilize it with miracid or a similar one. They like moist soil, so don't let it get dry. In the winter, put it at an east window and try to keep the air around it moist. Otherwise, it will get an infestation of spider mites,… More

  • Hi, I'm new

    Hi, I just joined today. Found this forum using Stumble Upon. I normally hang out on the Garden Web forums and sometimes the HGTV ones. I live in Georgia, just a bit north of Atlanta. I mostly garden with natives, but have a few special (to me) non-native plants -… More

  • Gardenia

    I was given a Gardenia early summer. Wow did it ever perform, new growth every week. Blooms were pushing out of it every other day. Well, now it seems to have slowed down a considerable amount. Its turning yellow, (the leaves) on the underneath, and its wilting quite a bit.… More

  • Full shade produce? Does it exist?

    I am moving into a condo in Culver City CA (90230) with a patio with an approximate 4' x 6' area where I had hoped to have a lovely vegetable garden and some citrus trees. To my disappointment, I realized the reason there's nothing but rocks over soil there now… More

  • Growing gardenias

    ...ly as tricky to grow as my book suggests? It says gardenias have very specific watering and temperature requirements. I love their flowers and the foliage but I wonder if it might be a lot of work to care for them? More
