By zuzu, April 28, 2015

My Experience with Rose Rosette DiseaseMy Experience with Rose Rosette Disease
By gemini_sage, April 27, 2015

I moved to my current home 8 years ago, and I brought almost every plant from my garden with me, including about 50 roses. It was an exciting time, as I had lived in a wooded, shady hollow, and I was happy to give so many sun-loving plants an appropriate home. I had chosen rose varieties for shade tolerance and disease resistance, because I knew the shade and moisture would be inviting for fungal diseases. Although we experienced a terrible drought that year, the roses did respond well to the sunny, open environment, and they settled in nicely in spite of the dry growing season.

By Ecograndma, April 20, 2015

Do you have limited gardening space? Do you have poor gardening soil? Would you like to limit water use? Is it necessary for you to garden in a seated position or are you tired of stooping over a garden bed? Re-purposing stock tanks as raised garden beds might work for you while avoiding the high cost of labor and materials in traditional construction.

By mjsponies on Apr 27, 2015 4:57 PM, concerning plant: Leafless Beaked Ladies' Tresses (Sacoila lanceolata)

The bloom spikes pop up in the spring anywhere from late April through late May. The bloom spikes appear before the leaves do, so they seem to come up out of nowhere. We've got them growing in several spots on our property, and we have put markers out so that they don't get mowed by accident.
The spikes are anywhere from 12 inches tall on younger plants to 24 inches tall on mature ones.

By RoseBlush1 on Apr 27, 2015 11:39 AM, concerning plant: Rose (Rosa 'Silver Cloud')

You can see the 'Angel Face' lineage in this rose in the ruffled petals. When Ralph Moore was asked why he used 'Angel Face' for breeding, as it was commonly considered a weak rose in this part of the US, his answer was, "Because it was there."

'Silver Cloud' is prone to black spot in my garden. I do not spray and the rose recovers quite well.

An old-time, round red radish that is very early. Not as good as Early Scarlet Globe, but quite acceptable and reliable.

By RoseBlush1 on Apr 26, 2015 11:31 PM, concerning plant: Rose (Rosa 'Little Eskimo')

Although this rose was registered by Ralph Moore as a miniature rose, it is actually a polyantha. When asked why he did not register the rose in the polyantha class, his answer was, "No one is buying polyanthas now, but they are buying miniature roses."

By Lilydaydreamer on Apr 26, 2015 6:23 PM, concerning plant: Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Developing Story')

This Daylily is fantastic and needs to be more widely distributed.
Good Increase, well spaced branches, bud builder and a beautiful bloom that opens and closes clean. Looking forward to see what it passes to offspring.
