    DAMMIT! This is the kind of thing, I need to know when I order. Why the hell wouldn't it say that? I had the same trouble with the cherry trees, that's why I had to order a second one of those...

    Thought I would share a picture of my home and front gardens. I can't wait until the warm weather. I really enjoy gardening.

    Very nice.


    I have not done anything except finally get the chance to mow my lawn. We have gotten nothing but cool and very wet weather and over eight inches of rain last month. The ground is a soggy mess, and most flowering plants are not doing so well bloom wise-especially fruit trees.

    I have a few shrubs to plant, some thing to rearrange, but can do nothing with this wet weather. And more rain today, tomorrow, etc.

    lovely garden, smurfette!

    we did some gardening yesterday. i planted a miniature rose (rise and shine), a new rosemary bush, a juliet tomato and a french thyme plant. those are just my small garden at home. later this week, we will be planting the bulk of our big garden, which is down the street. for that garden, i've got more tomatoes (cherokee purple, green zebra, caspian pink and jaune flamme), kale, melons (tigger & hale's best), pole beans, radishes, fingerling and blue potatoes and corn.

    hey, question for any tomato people...what is a good heirloom variety for drying?

    we dug up our late started 2010 garden, and I'm going to plant a lemon tree (I drink loads of iced tea and thought it'd be cool to grow my own)

    i need tips on what kind of lemon tree to buy. anyone?

    i like lisbon lemons...they're on the tart side. meyers are good if you like sweeter lemons...great for lemonade. the good thing is pretty much any lemon tree should do wonderfully where you're located.

    Check into getting a Meyer Lemon tree. I have heard that they are the preferred lemon to use by chefs in recipes.

    I am new to gardening. Just started this spring. I have what I think are tiny horn worms on my one and only tomato plant. I'm trying a organic product to get rid of them. It' is know as Dipel dust or BT. Any one else use this? Should I trash this plant and start over?

    I am soooo jealous of all of you with your Rosemary, and bamboo, and frickin lemon trees. I wish I could plant that stuff here. *garden envy*

    I love garening. Though I have lots of pre-2WW apple trees on my possesion I'm trying to get rid of them and plant new ones. I live in a rather cold climate so there's not many possibilities for my garden.

    Smurfette, your garden looks beautiful!

    Things are picking up here finally - the crocuses are out, the robins are singing (we have one guy in our yard who's trying his hardest, although I still haven't seen any females around), and almost all the snow's gone. YIPPEEEEE! It's SPRING!

    Coming back to look at your pretty flowers and nice looking dog(I love dogs!) puts a smile of my face! Such a nice happy comforting pic!

    If the weather is ok I am putting flowers out this weekend!

    Thanks Soj! That's very sweet of you. I love gardening. It's so relaxing and therapeutic.

    I work for a flower merchandising company and we are getting a black petunia this year. I have never seen one and I'm so excited to see it.
