By |2020-02-25T14:26:38-05:00February 25th, 2020|

Houseplants 101: How to Propagate Plants By Kier Holmes, Gardenista.com As a garden designer who also loves making homemade gifts, I often propagate my houseplants. Giving away or swapping the plant babies is a rewarding project—and if you take up the same hobby, you can give yourself a pat on the back for practicing environmentalism and frugality. Depending on the plant, you’ll use one of several propagation methods—from rooting a leaf to taking a stem cutting to coaxing new roots to grow in water. Whatever method you choose, multiplying your houseplants will yield satisfying results (and thoughtful gifts for [...]

Rebecca Paredes, author of a beginner’s guide to creating a terrarium on the website Green Future, says terrariums are the way to go for those with little time [...]

Mid-Winter Witch-Hazel

By |2020-01-30T12:59:18-05:00January 29th, 2020|

Mid-Winter Witch-Hazel By R. Wayne Mezitt These January temperatures we’re now seeing are among the warmest on record for this region. During these last days of the month, our ground remains unfrozen and nearly all the snow we received in December has vanished. Warmer January conditions are generally not problematic for winter-hardy plants, provided “normal” colder weather returns soon. But some observations are interesting. Gazing out my bathroom window at my January landscape vista, the view is mostly dominated by tawny shades of dormant foliage and branching, with random verdant-toned interspersions of rhododendron foliage, needled evergreens and tree-trunk lichen. [...]
