These are fascinating plants, but I have had a tough time keeping them alive, will have to follow your advice more closely next time!

I love these plants, but have not had luck with them. Thanks for the tips...it does make more sense now. I do know that they need lots of water and its difficult to keep up with it when drought conditions roll in. Maybe I need a DIY sprinkler system?

Here are some gardening tips for drought conditions.

Wow. Yours is huge! We have one that is about 25 feet high and bloomed in the early spring. It is such a welcome sign of warm weather, enjoy!

Love it. Wish we had such fun birds in our yard...just finches and (my favorite) cardinals.

They are sort of cute, as long as they don't get too close. We had a mom and her babies take up residence in our next door neighbor's tree (big hole in the trunk), fun to watch, but then they got spooked and went away.

Looks great. Keep up the good work. I know it's hard work!

One thing to be aware of is that nurseries typically stock plants that have been "forced" into bloom a little early. While there's nothing wrong with this, you have to realize that when you then plant that rose bush in your own garden it won't bloom as early the next year. We all want instant gratification, but.....

Love it. So, do they only get to be a certain size and do you keep them in pots the whole time or eventually move them into the ground?

I have a few plants, brunnera is one, that self seed, so I let the small ones grow a little during the season then move it in the fall to a more organized location. Lots of free plants that way--I even have enough to give away to friends.

Great tips...I didn't realize it takes so much planning, so this is good to know.

Wow. What a great site. Hope they return! I just saw this interesting link on owls...from a kid's perspective.

Love it. They are so fun to watch in the garden. We planted three butterfly bushes last year and they are huge! Here's a good link to what plants you can add to attract butterflies:

I like Benjamin Moore's desert tan, has a little more yellow than a beige or ivory and is nice with red.

Wow. I've never seen one like that before.

One other thought is to take the doors off when doing the painting. Some people don't because it adds step, but you can get to so much more when you do.

Just saw this online and it has some cool photos, too. I wouldn't have thought about painting floors, but it looks great. Just take your time.

Best Answer

I use Sluggo, but it is expensive. It is more organic than some of the slug killers, though. I also try to clean out all the dead leaves from around plants, as they love to hide there.

Love this picture! Our daffodils did not amount to much this year...will have to do some more bulb shopping in the fall. Does anyone have ideas for where to buy good bulbs or what specific type of daffodils to get that are hardy for zone 5 and make a good show?
