By SongofJoy, April 22, 2014

I seem to have a love-hate relationship with the variegated vinca vine. I know its invasive tendencies, but I still admire it for its hardiness, its striking blue-purple flowers, and its lovely variegated foliage.

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 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.

By eclayne on Apr 22, 2014 4:35 PM, concerning plant: Purple Coneflower (Echinacea purpurea PowWow® Wild Berry)

A no fuss echi with a long bloom period. Beautiful flowers are bee magnets and it's easy to divide. In well draining soil they can take lots of water, I have one with Japanese Iris, or no supplemental water.

By Bonehead on Apr 22, 2014 10:50 AM, concerning plant: Goat's Beard (Aruncus dioicus)

Native in the Pacific Northwest, found in damp forest edges, most commonly seen along road shoulders in the mountain passes. The root may be used as a poultice for sores, or as an infusion for colds and sore throats. Aruncus is from the Greek aryngos (goat's beard). I have had difficulty transplanting this, but I keep trying. It is a lovely statement plant, especially in a large swath.
