  Turning my garden over today! YEAH!!!!!

Ooh, I have soil envy: mine's still frozen!

For herbs, if you don't mind a big reseeder, try borage. It grows very easily from seed (probably the way you'll have to buy it), it attracts bees like crazy (a good companion plant for those cukes and squash), and the star-shaped true blue flowers can be crystalized to put on cakes or eaten raw with the young leaves (they taste cucumberish and are very good in salads). When they start getting too big (up to 3' tall) and/or raggedy looking, just pull them up. If you let them go to seed, you'll probably be able to get two crops in one year.

Also, basil grows well (and tastes good!) with tomatoes and green peppers, tomatoes also like chives and parsley, and onion likes to grow with summer savory and chamomile. Thyme and sage are also pretty easy to grow and are perennials to boot (just trim them back by about 1/2 in early spring).

Best of luck and yummy eating!

  When is the right time to start seedlings indoors?
Posted by: flower_child - 02-24-2006, 05:20 AM - Forum: Gardening - Replies (1)

I will be starting most of my seedlings next weekend. I live in Illinois, zone 5. I'll wait a couple more weeks to start my tomatoes. I use those little Jiffy peat pellets. Once they start growing pretty good, I transfer them to peat pots with potting soil. But before I transfer them I take the netting off. Last year I had great results. I hope they come out good this year.

  Weed Killer
Posted by: sharron11 - 02-21-2006, 12:44 PM - Forum: Gardening - No Replies

Is anyone familiar with a weed killer that can be used in cool temperatures? Heard about it awhile back on a garden radio show but didn't write down the information. It is for chickweed and other weeds that thrive in cooler temps. Thanks for any info. [color:green]

  When to repot a ZZ plant??
Posted by: KT0491 - 02-13-2006, 05:15 PM - Forum: Gardening - No Replies

I have a ZZ plant, Zamioculcas zamiifolia, still in the original plastic pot from the nursery. The tuber is pushing on the inside of the pot, distorting the pot. Do ZZ plants like to be pot bound or is this a sign to pot up a size? Thanks for any help!

  Why plant coral bells
Posted by: amf - 01-13-2006, 04:20 PM - Forum: Gardening - Replies (1)

Heuchara will need a shady spot that is well endowed with organic matter and is evenly moist but well drained. They can brighten up a shady spot with the colors, especially some of the newer cultivars available, and are generally quite easy to care for as long as their needs are met.
