Variegated Vinca Vine - Love It Or Hate It?Variegated Vinca Vine - Love It Or Hate It?
By SongofJoy, April 22, 2014

Flooring for GreenhouseFlooring for Greenhouse
By Eric4home, April 16, 2014

We poured a concrete floor for our structure. After leveling the space by digging down a bit, we put up 8" forms. For the next step we put down recycled 3" closed-cell foam and covered it with poly. We left the center open for drainage and brick so we could access the power and water if repairs are needed. The pipe next to the shovel is the hydrant.The floor tilts to center 1"/3' to keep water from freezing the walls loose from the base.

By Skiekitty on Apr 23, 2014 10:48 AM, concerning plant: Rose (Rosa 'Sweet Fragrance')

This year, at the nursery, sniffed 4 different bushes tagged this rose. None of them had any scent. Nor did they look like the bushes last year as the blooms were more coral than apricot.

'English Bluebells' have the following characteristics that help distinguish them from 'Spanish Bluebells':

By Marilyn on Apr 22, 2014 9:20 PM, concerning plant: Darwin Hybrid Tulip (Tulipa 'Orange Sun')

The flowers of 'Orange Sun' start out yellow with some orange and then age to solid orange. It provides a beautiful and mixed color variety of flowers while they're in the aging process. It has become one of my favorite tulips. The name of 'Orange Sun' is perfect because the flowers age from yellow (sun) to orange coloring.
