How do I post photos?

Category: Photos | Posted: Tue May 13, 2008 9:54 pm

I'm enjoying seeing all the photos on various blogs and I have lots to share. What's the easiest way to do this or can you direct me to the section of this site that provides directions. Thanks.

Successes and Challenges in Seed Starting Spring 08

Category: Seed Starting | Posted: Sat May 10, 2008 11:56 am

I got my training seed starting when I worked at Brooklyn Botanic Garden's Education greenhouse. Decided to try at home in my new place in Winston Salem Nc where I have a much sunnier option than in my apt. in Brooklyn, NY.

So far, I've gotten some success but my failure to label properly and my emergency trip out of town (had to pass along to my sister for care) gave me special challenges. Still I've gotten the following to sprout well:

lima beans, moon flowers, larkspur, etc.

Have problems with the zinnias and sunflowers so will direct sow.

Will come back here with progress report when I actually get some flowers.

Red Garden

Category: Garden Designs | Posted: Sat May 10, 2008 11:42 am

After much contemplation I decided to use red as the main color for a bed in front of our house. Along with two bright red double Knock Outs, I used 2 red verbenas, 2 red (yes red) dianthus and 5 English boxwoods to define the border and provide winter interest. There are large shrubs (not sure of variety) behind this border and grass in front. I used red to pick up on the brick of the house and to provide colorful interst from the street. I have two large white containers on the stoop with red caladiums and begonias. Sounds like a lot of red but I decided that the one color with a lot of plant variety would have more punch than a mixture since this is a small bed.
