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.

Water Beds for Daylilies?!?!?!Water Beds for Daylilies?!?!?!
By fiwit, April 11, 2014

Until fall 2013, the only water beds I'd ever heard of were for humans. Then Daylily hybridizer Lee Pickles described the water beds he made for his daylilies, and I knew I had to try it for myself.

Daylilies in My Living RoomDaylilies in My Living Room
By profesora, April 10, 2014

Plants in the house soothe my soul, caress the air, blend color and texture naturally, and rescue me from deep depression. Dark dreary days contribute to depression, but plants and blooms counteract those days. I know that it is not this simple, but it helps.

This plant is very easy to root from cuttings. I have had no luck starting it from seed.

By farmerdill on Apr 15, 2014 4:56 PM, concerning plant: English Pea (Pisum sativus 'Blue Bantam')

This variety was introduced by Burpee in the early 20th century. After it was out of circulation for years, Burpee has reintroduced it. In my early childhood we grew Thomas Laxton and Little Marvel. In the 50's we replaced Little Marvel with Blue Bantam. Much more productive than Little Marvel and a good eating pea.

By texaskitty111 on Apr 15, 2014 11:12 AM, concerning plant: Boysenberry (Rubus 'Boysenberry')

I believe this to be the best tasting berry of all. Not dry like a raspberry, seedy like a blackberry, sour like a gooseberry, or pithy like store bought strawberries. It's wonderful cooked or fresh. Grows on second year vines. Thornless version still has small thorns, original version (bigger thorns like blackberry vines) sets more fruit. Hard to find if you want to buy.

I have always thought that this flower is beautiful. I have never lived somewhere that it would grow. I've heard that it's easy if you live in the right place (cooler).
