Good morning gardening chums :)
I caught myself some Poison Ivy a couple weeks ago and then again a couple days ago. It's all down between my fingers and they are actually starting to hurt. I'm pretty sure I thought it was a weed and pulled it up and that's how it got between my fingers. Unfortunately, I can't be 100% sure about that which is a problem because I don't know where I keep getting this from. I've walked my entire property and don't see Ivy, Oak or Sumac yet I know it's here somewhere.
Anyway, I thot this would be a good place to ask if anyone had a remedy for the burning and itch I'm having. This is the second time w in 3 weeks that I've gotten it and it's worse than last time.
Please send me your suggestions. I'd really appreciate it :)
Is anyone doing any garden planning? I don't have the land or access to have a garden this coming spring, but I am curious about what others are plotting and planning.
Hi everyone. It sure is quiet around here ... I myself am guilty of not posting anything and I should be because there has been so much going on in the garden this spring!
Today I'm here to ask a question: After your Lilies bloom (Think Stargazer, not Day-lily), is it safe to cut them back? Does the bulb feed off the greenery throughout the summer or is it okay to just cut it off? If so, how far?
I've searched all over the internet and I can't find an answer to this question. Help!
Thanks in advance :)
I ordered a set of Yukon Gold from Gruney's Seed and Nursery Co. The instructions that came with it are a little confusing. First I should say that I will be planting them in "Potato Bag" planters (Self contained and movable sacks of earth that are designed for potatoes). The part of the instructions that is confusing is where they say,
"Do not dig up entire plant.
Carefully dig larger tubers, leaving the
smaller ones to continue to grow. Harvest
for winter storage when plant tops begin
to dry. Leave tubers in the garden for a
day to cure the skins, then store in a cool,
dark, airy place."
How can I dig the larger ones up if I need to leave them in the ground after the plant tops begin to dry? This just doesn't make sense to me
Please give me some advice. Thanks
