This article describes a nearly painless way - using a tool that I invented - to install black poly irrigation pipe with little impact to the lawn or gardens.

So what happened to "Caramel Cocktail" and it's pollinator "Sugar Daddy"? It won awards, and then disappeared. I've searched to be able to purchase these, and they are nowhere to be found.... ?

By lovesblooms on Mar 5, 2015 8:06 AM, concerning plant: Passionflower (Passiflora sanguinolenta)

I truly enjoyed this plant, which I received as rooted and unrooted cuttings from a plant trade last year. I grew two outdoors, and each plant branched nicely and filled a 10" hanging basket that got blazing afternoon sun from around 3:00 to sunset all summer. I watered when it wilted, which wasn't every five minutes. Surprisingly. it liked to use its tendrils to climb up, but I just detached them to let it hang.

The foliage was lush and beautifully shaped, like small green butterflies. The exotic-looking pink flowers didn't smother the plant by any means, but the ones that showed were delightful.

I let the plants dry out when I brought them in for the winter and I'm afraid I've lost them, but I recently decided to soak them and see if anything happens. I'd taken cuttings when I brought them in, but allowed those to dry out, too (sigh).
