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.

Echinacea Clean UpEchinacea Clean Up
By clintbrown, August 18, 2015

If you don't like the appearance of your Echinacea seedheads in late summer and early fall, you can still tidy up their appearance and feed the goldfinches and other birds as well. To clean up, I wait until the stalk just below the seedheads turns brown/black. Cut the stalks and bundle like a bouquet and tie to the base of a pole or small tree. I do this so the finches can have the seeds, and it looks neater. The base of a shepherd's hook that holds your birdfeeders is an excellent spot to tie your seed bouquet.

Do You Have Plants That Need Consistent Watering?Do You Have Plants That Need Consistent Watering?
By daylilydreams, August 14, 2015

I recently planted a Ligularia Desdemona that needed a bit more consistent watering where it is planted. While trying to figure out how to meet the needs of this plant, I came up with an idea when I spotted a empty juice container to be recycled. I know other plants sometimes require consistent water and I decided to share my idea as it may be helpful to others.
