An All Things Plants Favorite: GarlicAn All Things Plants Favorite: Garlic
By dave, August 27, 2015

What is the absolute easiest edible plant you can grow? I spent my entire morning contemplating that question, and nothing came to mind that beats garlic. As everyone knows, it's a bulb, planted in the fall, grown through the winter, and harvested in very early summer. It requires no special care during the growing season, and has absolutely innumerable uses. Let's talk about this incredible plant.

The Most Important Garden Pass-AlongThe Most Important Garden Pass-Along
By grannysgarden, August 24, 2015

We often refer to an heirloom plant as a pass-along. These are very dear to us, but there is an even more important garden pass-along, which is the garden practices and garden knowledge we adhere to in our own gardens.

This is a seedling of 'Pink Pansy' (and in my opinion far superior!)

By Mayo62 on Aug 28, 2015 2:32 PM, concerning plant: Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Wilson Spider')

I bought 8 fans and planted them on 4/17/2015.
Because my borders were already filling up with annuals I put them in a big pot.

The fans increased from April until now from 8 to 18(!).
It produced 11 scapes and started blooming on 7/17/2015, last flower on 8/10/2015, with a total of 51 flowers. :-)
I took away all spent flowers, so I don't know anything about it's fertility yet.
It is making 2 prolifs though :-)

I haven't measured the flowers... sorry Sad I promise to do better next year!
Flowers were well placed and didn't cramp each other.
The scapes ranged from 19 to 22 inches high. Scapes were sturdy and most were well above the foliage
Leaves and fans are narrow, but there are a lot of them.

This afternoon I took it out of the pot to put it in a border (annuals are gone :-D) and I found that in 4+ months it made a lot of roots...
Perhaps this is the reason the scapes didn't get as high as they should?

All in all this is a spider that I really love and I'm sure it will only get better now that it is in the ground :-D

This jolly plant will reseed itself freely. I let it pop up wherever it likes (within reason) for a bright splash of color throughout the summer. Both the flowers and leaves may be infused or decocted and used as an antiseptic. The flowers may be added to a vinegar hair rinse, and may also be used as a dye plant.

One of the hardest plants I found trying to I.D.! It almost looks like an allium but it has no purple or white flowers and gets huge!
