This year we have received a new series of Clematis from Monrovia.  They were developed by Raymond Evison and have been bred for the following:

  • Ideal for growing in containers, patios or small spaces.
  • Compact, easy care, bushy habit.
  • Long flowering period from Spring to late Summer.
  • Vigorous regrowth each spring.
  • Can be enjoyed indoors before planting outside.

We are currently offering 5 of the varieties including Fleuri, Ninon, Parisienne, Rebecca, and Zara.  From the pictures and descriptions they look like an excellent plant, especially for patio planters.  Long lasting blooms on a compact plant, whats not to love?

Fall Container Gardening Made Easy!

 

There’s more to fall than mums! (Although we do have a large selection, so come check them out!)

The variety of color and texture for fall planting is anything but dull, even for the blackest of thumbs. Everything we have will last until the first frost in November, so why wait! Cabbage and kale will last even longer.

Above are samples of some awe inspiring fall displays that are easy to replicate and call your own.

 

Using Celosia as the focal point, or any tall, bright plant (Intenz shown here) is a good beginning. Next, surround the center piece with different sized cabbage and/or kale for texture. Last, add some pansies, asters, ornamental peppers and/or small/medium pumpkins/gourds for pops of color. And of course, don’t forget some mums!

Quick Tips:

If you are using containers that are taller than the plants, you can flip smaller containers over and stack them inside. You can also grab a brick/paver, depending on the size of your container to elevate the plants.

If you are planning to plant the flowers, we reccommend using some Fafard Ultra Container mix.

Til next time,

Leafminer is a flying insect that lays eggs inside the leaves of your boxwood and then hatch and grow into small wormlike larvae. While inside the leaf they eat and feed off the boxwood, leaving it weakened and stressed.  You might have noticed that the outer portion of your boxwoods are yellowed, puckered and otherwise unhealthy looking.  This is where the leafminers are living. In a short time the leaf miners will start chewing and producing a loud chattering noise and then emerge as a winged adult, breed, and deposit more eggs in your boxwood continuing the cycle until your boxwood is either dead or extremely diseased. There are several things you can do to due to fix this problem as it will only get worse if left untreated.  The best option is to use a systemic insecticide with imadicloprid which causes your plant to become toxic to insects and kills any eggs laid within the leaves to die.  You can also spray with a foliar spray that has some residual while they are flying around, although it is difficult to get the timing down especially if you are working.  Finally if you would like to go with a non chemical approach you can prune off the infected chattering leaves (this must be done before they hatch, like today) and destroy them (garbage bag) or bury them well.  Wilt stop (pine oil) or All Seasons Oil can also be tried for another chemical alternative.  Finally, when treating this it’s important to fertilize the boxwood because the plant is stressed and needs help.  Stop in and we can assist you if you have noticed this problem.  It is very common and can be treated.
