    Re: The Gardening Thread

    Hey Anka! Remember that peace lily you advised me to replant (a long time ago)? Well it started flowering again! I couldn't believe it.

    Kinda busy so I didn't click the link, forgive me if this is covered in it: I 'played' with this idea years ago and I've been planning on picking up where I left off. NASA did a study on which plants...

    Re: The Gardening Thread

    Update on my end: I didn't do any major redesign. I did plant though because of the timing. I have a small herb garden as well as some collards and tomatoes. I live in the suburbs so I don't have...

    Re: The Gardening Thread

    Actually yes, good timing.

    I'm completely redoing one section of my yard. I want an area to sit out and read and not constantly worry about upkeep. I haven't designed it yet, but I want to have...

    Re: The Gardening Thread

    Here's the gardenia, along with the area I want to clean up. As I said before, the soil is just sand. Fine grain sand like at the beach. If you grabbed a handful of it, it would run through your...

    Re: The Gardening Thread

    I need advice for a gardenia: I planted it about 2 years ago. It never grew, it just kinda hung in there. It does bloom every year but not much. It looks really shoddy right now. The soil definitely...

    Ditto, but different coast. The heat here is absolutely brutal. My plants can take the morning sun but they must be in the shade around 2pm-ish. Some plants can take it (like rosemary) but very very...

    If my father read your post he'd glare at me and say, "I told you so." I can be hard headed at times. And thanks for the compliments, much love.
