1 Plants,flowers and gardens on Thu Jun 19, 2008 10:41 am


hey all !
hows ur garden growing?, any tips or secrets?

I have orchids blooming now ,well five of them are,I have 15..

also got my first ripe tomato, yesterday
we had an awful time earlier with spider mites, we finally got rid of them using dawn detergent four drops to a quart of water.. blasting them with water will get rid of them also, drowns the little buggers LOL
epsom salts are good to put around all plants~it adds magnesium to soil and plants which helps with photosynthesis,and and the action of light on the chlorophyll in green plant cells..

well we are getting a nice rain,slow, with out the lightening/thunder
the plants/flowers,garden are enjoying a nice drink`
It is beautiful to see how all perk up with a gentle rain..lkind of a slack blooming time..

,hollyhocks are blooming,hydranga bushes are, mine are pink..I think that means by soil is alkaline
or does that mean acidity? will have to look that one up
oh yes, the bachelor buttons are blooming also.. i have a sea of blue ones in my front yard..
also my year old raspberry vine has a nice bunch of raspberries.. to pick soon,

honeysuckle is blooming, and at night when the breeze is still, the fragrance is lovely>>Takes ye Breath away,` especially if ur sharing it with your soul mate~~ Very Happy
