|Most of us love the gorgeous flowers of hydrangeas! We have lots of Big Leaf Hydrangeas (Hydrangea macrophylla) in stock and more coming. They look lovely massed together in groups and enjoy part shade. They are calming and cooling.|
We have other hydrangea types too (Oakleaf, Smooth, and Panicle). If you plant each type you should have hydrangeas blooming most of the summer and even into fall!
We've gotten lots of shrub shipments this week - including one from the West Coast with lots of awesome plants!
|FROM WILMA: Playing in the rain is something we liked to do as children. Yesterday I donned my rain gear and had fun “playing” in my garden. I planted okra and zinnia seeds, transplanted perennials, and fertilized hollies with Hollytone. I also divided an heirloom Hosta plantaginea (aka August Lily) that I will share with my cousin. He and I have memories of the original plant growing in our aunt’s garden.|
“Even if there is a 100% chance of rain, still water in your transplants.” - David Carson, Haywood Community College. I heard this quote many times in my horticulture classes. I was tempted to bypass this advice but, lo and behold, the rain stopped soon after I finished transplanting.
With wet conditions, slugs are beginning to have a field day on some plants. Check your plants often – they especially love hostas. I also discovered this morning that they really like basil. Sluggo is an organic OMRI approved treatment for slugs.
