Clinging Seeds SolutionClinging Seeds Solution
By wildflowers, April 24, 2014

For those seeds that are clinging to the inside walls of the plastic or cellophane seed packets, making it almost impossible to get them out, I found that rubbing the packet with a fabric softener sheet (dryer sheet) does a good job of stopping static cling.

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 eclayne on Apr 23, 2014 9:06 PM, concerning plant: Dwarf Banana (Musa acuminata 'Dwarf Namwah')

This is a highly variable variety of M. acuminata. Quite a few patterns of variegation are known, as well as different shades of green, from dark to chartreuse. While each individual plant is generally color/pattern stable, pups will often differ significantly from the parent plant. The leaves will usually turn a solid green over the winter months with warmer weather bringing a return of their previous years pattern or color.

This plant is easy to grow if you keep a pan of water filled under the pot. Very, very sensitive to drying out.

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.
