Wild Iris RowsWild Iris Rows
By Sharon, June 29, 2015

I stood on a little knoll and looked around me. It was like nothing I'd ever seen, acres and acres of color spread out like a treasured old patchwork quilt made of random shapes and sizes. It was pieced together with strips of green and shades of brown that gently covered the rolling hills. It was an iris farm and every plant seemed to be blooming in glorious color!

Start with a cutting that still has its growing tip. Put in a small cane to support it as it grows. Keep potting on so that it does not get pot-bound.

More Than Just a Sea of GreenMore Than Just a Sea of Green
By Paul2032, June 24, 2015

There was a time when the Hostas available to the average gardener were predominantly shades of green with an occasional one that was gold or bluish. That is not true today, as the work of some dedicated hybridizers and mutations from Mother Nature have given us a wider palette of hosta colors to choose from. Careful selection of some of the lovely cultivars available today can make the Hosta Garden something more than a sea of green.

By plantrob on Jul 1, 2015 8:32 PM, concerning plant: Chinese Green Dragon (Pinellia pedatisecta)

Quite the spreader - it seems like every seed it sets grows into a plant, and some pop up in unusual places, including spots in full sun, where they do fine despite their reputation as a shade plant. They quickly grow a small bulb, which grows into a large flattened bulb over the course of a few years. While I like them, they've gotten out of hand in a few garden areas, so I treat them with caution these days.

By farmerdill on Jun 29, 2015 8:55 AM, concerning plant: Tomato (Solanum lycopersicum 'Mountain Majesty')

This was very disappointing in this year's trials. It has very little resistance to TSWV. Not only are fruits affected, but the vines are going down as the fruit begins to ripen. I had high hopes for it as Mountain Merit is a very good TSWV tomato. Mountain Majesty is the poorest performer claiming TSWV resistance that I have tried to date.

By farmerdill on Jun 29, 2015 8:48 AM, concerning plant: Tomato (Solanum lycopersicum 'PS 01522942')

A large (8-12 ounce) TSWV-resistant, round, red tomato. It is a vigorous determinate. While the fruits show some of the yellow spots and flecks of TSWV, they are maintaining size and quality. Plants seem unaffected. Best performer in this year's trials. It has an excellent disease package.

By plantrob on Jun 28, 2015 1:48 PM, concerning plant: German Garlic (Allium senescens subsp. glaucum)

I'd grow this allium even if it never bloomed. The bluish-green foliage on a mature plant is marvelous: broad, just a little curvaceous, with a smooth rounded tip. They take a few years (from seed) to reach this stage, but it's worth it. I grow them in the rock garden.
