No matter how well graded or managed your yard or golf course may be, too much rain in a short period of time can create puddles and mud. What can you do?
It’s time to enter The Pennsylvania Horticultural Society’s annual City Gardens Contest which has been celebrating the success of local gardeners for nearly 40 years!
As summer gets going, the ‘cool weather crops’ that do well in the spring, such as lettuce, begin to go to seed.
If you have clover in your grass and you see the little white flowers blooming this time of year, you might want to let them stay a while.
Whenever we seed, fertilize, water and mow, we owe a debt of gratitude to our forefathers, those who took the time to learn so much about how things grow and generously pass along what they had learned.
While Spring seems full of garden tours, I’m happy to say there’s one coming up just as Summer gets underway, featuring four unique private gardens in the Upper Perkiomen Valley.
It’s easy to get distracted by so many flowers blooming from March until June – but it’s the lushness of the green leaves that’s really the life of spring.
It started as a weed, but became a star in my garden. Philadelphia Fleabane grows about two feet high with masses of pretty pink flowers that have yellow centers like delicate daisies.
One of the best things I’ve ever planted is Baptisia australis, an easy care native perennial, better known by its common name, False Indigo.
While lots of littler trees have fabulous flowers down low where we can see them, the tulip poplar blooms high above us. So, keep an eye out for their fallen flowers and take one home as a treat.
If you think you can’t really grow anything because you don’t have a garden or a yard, look around. Maybe there’s a space where you could plant a little something that will keep you – and your neighbors – smiling all summer long.
The hopeful time before the gardening season really gets started is one of the best parts – planning things out in your head. But now it’s time to stop planning and start planting!
Planting a flag of flowers for Memorial Day weekend gives you a great display for all our patriotic holidays through the summer.
This is a good time to put perennials in those shadier spots so you won’t have to crawl under conifers and shrubs to plant so many annuals every year.
