Wild Iris RowsWild Iris Rows
By Sharon, June 29, 2015

I stood on a little knoll and looked around me. It was like nothing I'd ever seen, acres and acres of color spread out like a treasured old patchwork quilt made of random shapes and sizes. It was pieced together with strips of green and shades of brown that gently covered the rolling hills. It was an iris farm and every plant seemed to be blooming in glorious color!

Start with a cutting that still has its growing tip. Put in a small cane to support it as it grows. Keep potting on so that it does not get pot-bound.

More Than Just a Sea of GreenMore Than Just a Sea of Green
By Paul2032, June 24, 2015

There was a time when the Hostas available to the average gardener were predominantly shades of green with an occasional one that was gold or bluish. That is not true today, as the work of some dedicated hybridizers and mutations from Mother Nature have given us a wider palette of hosta colors to choose from. Careful selection of some of the lovely cultivars available today can make the Hosta Garden something more than a sea of green.

Add a Splash of Color to Your Hosta GardenAdd a Splash of Color to Your Hosta Garden
By Paul2032, June 23, 2015

It goes without saying that tastes vary. Hosta purists might recoil at the addition of a strong primary color to the cool blues, greens, and golds in their garden. To others, including me, the judicious addition of a splash of strong color to a mature planting can add excitement and visual interest.

Companion Plants for the Hosta GardenCompanion Plants for the Hosta Garden
By Paul2032, June 22, 2015

Hostas come in a great variety of colors, sizes, forms, and textures. A shady bed featuring only a number of well-chosen Hosta cultivars can provide great visual interest, but the addition of some companion plants can add to the overall beauty and diversity.

This was very disappointing in this year's trials. It has very little resistance to TSWV. Not only are fruits affected, but the vines are going down as the fruit begins to ripen. I had high hopes for it as Mountain Merit is a very good TSWV tomato. Mountain Majesty is the poorest performer claiming TSWV resistance that I have tried to date.

A large (8-12 ounce) TSWV-resistant, round, red tomato. It is a vigorous determinate. While the fruits show some of the yellow spots and flecks of TSWV, they are maintaining size and quality. Plants seem unaffected. Best performer in this year's trials. It has an excellent disease package.

By plantrob on Jun 28, 2015 1:48 PM, concerning plant: German Garlic (Allium senescens subsp. glaucum)

I'd grow this allium even if it never bloomed. The bluish-green foliage on a mature plant is marvellous: broad, just a little curvaceous, with a smooth rounded tip. They take a few years (from seed) to reach this stage, but it's worth it. I grow them in the rock garden.

By MikeD on Jun 27, 2015 12:04 PM, concerning plant: Brussels Sprouts (Brassica oleracea 'Hestia')

100 days. Richly-flavored, bright-green with yellow interiors, 1-inch diameter sprouts. For cold-winter areas, sow early as a spring transplant for summer-fall harvest. In mild-winter areas, plant late summer / early fall for winter-to-spring harvest. Tolerates both warm and cool weather. Harvest from bottom to top of stalk over several weeks.
