Prefers soil that is gritty, has sharp drainage and low fertility.

This is a very tough little peony! It started opening just before we had a very heavy snow storm this Mother's Day, followed by several nights of below-freezing temps. Most of the other varieties had some damage, but not Nosegay. I highly recommend this variety if you live in an area with late spring freezes.

I just bought this rose from Home Depot.

What a gorgeous, big, red, fragrant bloom!

I just bought this rose from Home Depot. Blooms are fragrant, peony-pink colored, and old fashioned. They age to a lavender-pink.

Star Roses is marketing this as a "floribunda romantica." Very confusing marketing, but a nice rose.

I am glad to see more Radler roses available locally. IMO, this rose is much nicer than the ubiquitous Knock Outs.

In addition to being vibrant and gorgeous, this plumeria also has a strong fragrance.

Pole bean type. This bean originated in Russia and was obtained by Nellie Chernoff, of Saskatchewan, Canada, in 1952. The pods are yellow and are said to taste similar to mushrooms when cooked. Of note, the pods tend to open ("shatter") when dry.

This Hawaiian variety is very close but - in my opinion - not identical to a Thai variety known as 'Linda'

A classic grey zucchini, tapered cylindrical shape, speckled mid-green color. Very vigorous but compact bush-type vine. Good disease resistance. Does well here.

I love hardy own-root roses!

When I saw a healthy own-root specimen of this rose in Walmart for $5, it leaped into my cart! I need some more "tough guys" to keep William Baffin company at the edge of the yard.

I have been admiring pictures of this rose for a while, so I was delighted to find one locally: at Walmart, of all places.

A good alternative to red Knock Out roses.

I wanted to buy my neighbor his first ever rose. It had to be a no-fuss manly rose!!!

I was looking for a hardy, disease resistant, reblooming, colorful (but not pink) shrub or floribunda rose on its own roots and already blooming. I was thinking of a red double Knock Out rose, but didn't see a healthy specimen in the stores. I saw this rose in Lowe's next to the Knock Out roses. It has pristine, shiny, dark green leaves and deep red blooms.

One advantage of buying roses in big box stores is that you can see how the blooms age. (They don't deadhead the roses. I suspect they may not even water the poor things.) Milano's blooms stay red as they age, while the red Knock Out roses fade to a garish reddish-pink color. I saw very slight bluing on a couple of blooms: just a fine line around the outer petals, much less than on many very dark red roses.

The blooms aren't fragrant, unfortunately.

By kylaluaz on May 19, 2015 1:32 PM, concerning plant: Cucumber (Cucumis sativus 'Bushy')

I chose this variety because it's said to only grow a five-foot long vine, or so, and I have limited space. I only intended to plant out two from the seeds I sowed, but it turned out that two I planted out first in containers, thinking I'd give them away, developed faster than the two in the ground. So now I have four. When I transplanted them from their winter sowing jug, I could smell the cucumber scent on the roots! And I am thrilled that all four plants now have fruit. Couldn't be happier with the plants so far. (Seed packet was purchased from Seed Savers Exchange.)
