Controlling common problems with annuals

By Felix on March 26th, 2009

Now that Spring is here, or let’s say that it should be here (we had a little snowstorm yesterday and are expecting two more this week) I wanna share some thoughts about how to control common problems with annuals. As you have already figured out, I love annuals. Just have a look at the white Easter Lily which should be blossoming somewhere around you. Isn’t nature incredible?

Annuals are among the most varied, most beautiful and most colorful flowers to design your garden with.  The sheer variety of annuals, the many colors, shapes and textures they come in, has made them a favorite among gardeners for many years.

With so many different annuals on the market, their ability to resist common plant diseases and insect infestations can vary quite a bit.  While some types of annuals are virtually impervious to disease and insects, others require much more care to remain trouble free.  When choosing varieties of annuals, it is always best to choose disease and insect resistant varieties when ever you can.  Doing so will allow you to use less pesticides, and they will generally be less trouble in the long run as well.

Prevent Common Plant and Flower diseases

By Felix on January 16th, 2009

Gardening is a wonderful, relaxing hobby for many people, and it continues to top surveys of favorite leisure activities. Most of the time a garden provides a soothing, relaxing environment, and healthy, attractive plants.  But as you know,  flowers and plants are prone to a number of diseases and pest infestations.

skullSimply paying attention to the condition of the plants in your garden may be the best way to keep disease outbreaks at a minimum.  Every garden is different,. You will develop a feel for what is normal, and when you should interfere. That will make it much easier to spot outbreaks of deseases before they spread throughout the garden.

In addition, simply keeping the plants in top condition is a great way to prevent disease.  Just as healthier people are better able to fight off infection, so too are healthier plants.  The better the overall condition of your plants, the better their immune system will be able to fight off disease.

It is important to be on the lookout for the first signs of problems so that they can be treated promptly.  Commen symptoms like blackor white spots, holes in the leaves and wounded stems can be signs of of a desease.  If you notice any of these conditions, it is important to diagnose and treat the affected plants as quickly as possible.  This is because an outbreak of disease, or a pest infestation, can quickly spread throughout the garden.

A Guide to Bulb Flowers

Since my early childhood days bulb flowers like crocus or tulips marked the end of the winter. Show off, that the spring is here and summer isn’t that far. Their really is some Power in every Flower.

Just about every flower gardener will work with bulb plants at one time or another.  Bulbs are loved by gardeners for the ease with which they grow, their hardiness and the fact that they can bloom again and again for many consecutive seasons without the need to replant.  With all these advantages, it is no wonder that bulb plants are so popular among both new and experienced gardeners.
