This plant is very easy to root from cuttings. I have had no luck starting it from seed.

By farmerdill on Apr 15, 2014 4:56 PM, concerning plant: English Pea (Pisum sativus 'Blue Bantam')

This variety was introduced by Burpee in the early 20th century. After it was out of circulation for years, Burpee has reintroduced it. In my early childhood we grew Thomas Laxton and Little Marvel. In the 50's we replaced Little Marvel with Blue Bantam. Much more productive than Little Marvel and a good eating pea.

I believe this to be the best tasting berry of all. Not dry like a raspberry, seedy like a blackberry, sour like a gooseberry, or pithy like store bought strawberries. It's wonderful cooked or fresh. Grows on second year vines. Thornless version still has small thorns, original version (bigger thorns like blackberry vines) sets more fruit. Hard to find if you want to buy.

I have always thought that this flower is beautiful. I have never lived somewhere that it would grow. I've heard that it's easy if you live in the right place (cooler).

This is a beautiful little plant with dainty pink and white flowers. I have grown this plant twice, but it has failed to return in spring. Most likely not hardy here in my zone 5.

Don't touch the seed pod! I did as I was intrigued with it but felt it for days after in my fingers. What looks like hairs are actually very sharp needles that penetrate the skin!

By gardengus on Apr 14, 2014 4:54 PM, concerning plant: Goji Berry (Lycium barbarum)

My two small plants managed to produce over a cup each of the berries. I hate reporting that the flavor is not pleasant (my opinion), but the berries have so many healthy ingredients that I found other ways to eat them. Just a tablespoon in any fruit smoothy and they go unnoticed. I did try a few dried then added to tea ...and, well, with some honey they didn't ruin the tea. Dried and dipped in chocolate, they were almost good , but most things are good covered in chocolate.

This plant multiplies rapidly!

Love this rose. Compact, not leggy. Pretty generous with blooms. Survives my zone 5 with winter mulch protection. FTW!

Every single plant of this I have purchased (all grafted) all reverted back to Dr. Huey. Will try it again in 2015 by ordering one from Palatine. Love this rose. Good vase life, smells wonderful.

By Skiekitty on Apr 14, 2014 1:27 PM, concerning plant: Rose (Rosa 'John F. Kennedy')

Was told by rosarians that this rose would not grow here in Colorado. I planted this rose back in '08. Blooms for me every year. Not very generous with blooms, dies back to the ground every winter, but produces beautiful white blooms every summer. Tolerates poor soil.

One of my favorite miniature roses. Love the lavender/russet color combination. No scent, unfortunately (at least none that I've smelled), but a very dependable rose that grows in partial shade for me.

By Skiekitty on Apr 14, 2014 1:21 PM, concerning plant: Rose (Rosa 'Dr. Huey')

I think everyone who's grown roses has grown Dr. Huey. Most store-bought roses (especially "body bag" roses) are grafted onto Dr. Huey rootstock. It's a single bloomer and sends out incredibly long canes like a rambler. The canes are easy to distinguish from the "desired" rose, as usually they're darker (almost reddish) and have smaller thorns. Dr. Huey is an incredibly hardy rose that is not easily killed. It will send out suckers everywhere! Too many of my desirable roses reverted back to Dr. Huey the 2nd or 3rd year.

A very unusually colored rose, it stands out in my garden. Survives zone 5 winter with mulch protection. Got about 3' tall and bloomed generously 2nd year in the ground.

By Skiekitty on Apr 14, 2014 1:18 PM, concerning plant: Rose (Rosa 'Denver's Dream')

This does not seem to be a strong miniature rose. I have tried to grow it 4 different times and they never seem to survive the summer, let alone zone 5 winter.

By Skiekitty on Apr 14, 2014 12:47 PM, concerning plant: Scarlet Monkey Flower (Erythranthe cardinalis)

Needs more water than I was willing to give it (not xeric). Beautiful red flowers, but smaller plant (less than 1foot tall).

Not a strong tree. Have tried to grow this tree 3 different times in 3 different places and each time it died. Beautiful red flowers, but never seems to survive zone 5 winters here.

Mine started out Harlequin but reverted to a solid green leaf with red flowers. Odd.

My plant is a volunteer. I bought a red butterfly bush and this grew out of the base! Beautiful silvery-blue flowers, not woody at all like a butterfly bush. Dies to the ground every year in my zone 5 with no protection, comes back every spring. Butterflies love it!

By Skiekitty on Apr 14, 2014 12:40 PM, concerning plant: (Vinca minor 'Blue and Gold')

An evergreen "weed," this particular cultivar reverted mostly back to the standard green leaves. Only here & there are the yellow vines apparent. First plant in my yard to bloom in the spring, last to bloom in the fall/winter. Snow or ice doesn't seem to bother it at all. Very strong vines. Leaves are very leathery. Survives zone 5 winters with no protection, in full shade, in full sun, it doesn't care.
