    Two years ago I bought this 6 inch twig that was supposed to be a rugosa rose from Aldi for $1.99. Didn’t have high hopes that it would do anything. Last year the thing got huge, but never flowered. This year happy to report that it is ev...

    Pretty sure it was psychological. I’m taking the week off to stage my house— clean, clear, and declutter. In the winter I bring in a bunch of planters and pots, and last week I put them back out. Two of them are heavy ceramic planters ...

    I’ve got “Xan’s Krims” although full disclosure, they haven’t been credentialed, or whatever it is for backyard cultivars. But this is year 12 (13?) from the original Black Krim Urmutter, and they are utterly adapted ...

    Before we moved, in the last few years, I collected some clematis seeds. After we moved, for a few months, I had this baggie of clematis seed floating around. A few weeks ago I mashed them into the dirt in a pot and left it sitting outside. Well...

    I bought a small potted fig tree about a few weeks ago, and it was doing well until I transplanted it. I bought a “selfwatering” pot, thinking it’d be handy as I’m usually away over the holidays and so it’s less likel...

    Such a lovely afternoon, mostly spent in the garden. The Eggplant Fairytale got planted in a big pot. The purple beans’, Trionfo Violetta, planter got moved from the patio to Shade garden against the fence. They are almost tall enough to sta...
