Fresh update on "garden center" discussed on GardenLine with Randy Lemmon
"Building up and building up. So this is one of those independent nurseries and garden centers. There's two of them that will have these fruit trees. They can help you find specific fruit cheese. They can help you order specific fruit trees, but they got the Citrus and they got the Berries. Fruiting trees. They got him coming in. Check that out. Now. Here's the deal that I was talking about. No, By the way, let me give out the phone number for the first time this hour because we're gonna need to go ahead and fill out the board with your guard line Questions. Last hour. Good hour. We were able to do several calls, but deep dives on several those calls. I think we could do that again this hour, But you got to call in and ask your question. All questions are fair game. But I really enjoyed when the last calls we had being able to help find the fruit trees make those suggestions because we're prepared for it this weekend, as opposed to last weekend back to the deal. Warren sudden gardens. King with Garden Center. They have their parent company, the Warren's family. They have a soil mulch. Compost manufacturing side up there in the just north of the king would area You see it? You may not know it, but it's ah, It's a big looking like soul yard up on 59, just north of North Park. Warren Southern Gardens on North part Kingwood Garden centers on Stone Hollow chest. No ridge at both of those locations. They have bags of their heirloom compost, its leaf mold compost. Really good compost can be an average price of about $15 back. Today. If you get three bags and $36, so I'll do the math for you $12 a bag that's a great deal. This deal is good. You don't have to go do it today. If you know you can't get out there today. Obviously it's good for a couple weeks. January 31st first is the deadline on the three bags for $36. If you need some compost by the back, we want the healthiest compass. We need the quality compost by the bag. I would venture to guess that you could never find this kind of quality at a big box store and a bag of compost. And this is why it's called heirloom leaf mold compost, and it's the heirloom soil line from our friends at war in Southern Gardens. Which now owns and operates the King would garden Center. So you have war in Southern Gardens at 16 75. North Park, Kingwood Garden Center, Stone Hollow, a chestnut ridge right behind the building that used to be Stein Mart just off King would drive.

And then you'll never want a garden again. I want to help. You have success right away with fruit trees, So we're gonna help you pick out the right variety. You know, say you want to do a peach and a Citrus. I couldn't do that. Don't use apples, peaches, Citrus nectarines, Citrus avocado. Don't Don't try to overthink this yet. Get get your hands dirty this early spring of 2021. Let's have some success and then we'll talk again. Later in the year and again in early of 2022 about what else we can add to the area. You can do a lot of different fruit trees on a typical quarter acre backyard like the it was Daryl and Carol, and he's got Back yard wide open in the area where he wants to do a couple But you will eventually find that you can do more than just a couple. I just don't want you to do more than just a couple right away because I need you to succeed. With some basic steps. That doesn't make any sense. It makes sense to me, friend. But if that did make it eases, call me. I'll clarify for it.

Christmas trees business thriving during pandemic, helps struggling families
"Cropped the kidney. It's stuff that tree up. Yeah. The Grinch stole the whose Christmas tree, but one are about a business is doing its level. Best to make sure families who don't have a tree this year can get one and get one for free. They've done this for the last two years and 20 twenties. The trifecta. We're joined now by Julie Actor with Actors Garden Center in Nevada in Julie. Thank you for joining me this morning. Good morning. Thank you for having me. Tell me about what inspired this idea for you all. But that's all started back in 2018. And we're going into the week of Christmas. And we had all these extra trees that we knew we weren't gonna sell. On guy just couldn't bear the idea of all these trees going the way so we came up with this event to donate the trees, the families and need. It was ended up being this huge success and we just heard so many amazing stories, and we had So much amazing support that we decided that we wanted to do it again in 2018. So last year we brought in about 55 extra trees and Our customers, all donated ornaments, treat them decorations, and we distributed that the trees. This is now our third year and I think Over the past few years was given up about 135 trees, families. I'm wondering, and you may know better, obviously, because we're upon it as this year. Have you seen more people in need of trees because obviously the economics of the pandemic. Yeah, definitely it So this year was, um, a little bit tougher for us. We brought in extra trees that we actually pulled out early. So I've been scrambling for the best week trying to find extra trees that we could do this giveaway. And we're able to thinking about 30 from my local tree. What And then our friend that Jensen Flower and garden actually donated the rest a barrel unfold trees, so kind of Ah group effort, and I know there's a lot of people out there this year that That didn't have it in the budget says to get against Christmas trees. We're really excited that we're able to pull this off and really excited for you. But today, I was going to say, I mean, it must be bittersweet. The fact that there's such demand that that makes you feel good that you're helping people but also that there's such demand that a lot of people are are really struggling. I wanted to ask. It's been a rough time financially for so many. I don't have to tell you that you're experiencing that and seeing that with with customers who need trees. How has the business How is your business survived? Drink over 19. Yes, There's kind of a roller coaster for us. We do about 80% of our years sales and three months and the pandemic hit right before those three months started. So it was pretty scary for us in the beginning, and there's like the very real possibility If we shut down the Let's get that out of business by the end of the year, And so that was pretty scary that we ended up being very fortunate. And with everyone staying home and working in their yards, our industry kind of boom sharing this all of this We've been very, very fortunate this year that we've done so well and we're just excited that we could give back and help people that weren't so fortunate that and I imagine I'm sure your employees are thankful that they're able to continue to work as well because of the difficulties. I'm just curious was your business, one of those to take advantage of the P P p when it was available. We did, um, we actually shut down. We went to it. An online store for about a month and a half we were forced to close were considered an essential business. That we lost a lot of employees. It just didn't feel comfortable being there. So which transitions you an online store for about a month and a half, which was an experience in itself on and then reopened in May that thinks that it's kind of in a roller coaster for us. It's been a crazy year and we're just very fortunate that That we came out. Okay with it all, Julie, With the moment we have left If you were talking about that you've gone through your trees, but
"And welcome back to the show. Fred your plant of the week with a plan of the week. Marcus something that i saw and it might well. I've admired for years. Yeah when i see them here and then they're somewhat common down where my daughter lives in north carolina it is called or named southern magnolia. So they're magnolia is indeed in that family it has a beautiful white somewhat fragrant flower and so on but the thing that was remarkable about three weeks ago when i saw it anything else had well most of them had defoliated and i haven't been driving by a place where there was a southern magnolia standing. Oh fifteen eighteen feet tall. Probably ten or so white at that point man absolutely a magnificent deep dark green. I happened to be there when there was done. And it was on the tree in a manner such that they just the leaves just shined. Well i got my attention and then other things came up when we talked about other plants. But then i went back yesterday with his pretty white out to the beauty of that treat now i. It's one. I don't recommend very often. I'm one to speak of the care where you plan it. But one i saw the v. One i saw was standing on a bit of a hill. Oh he time. Eighty and it was facing south east and absolutely well. There's up against or or near a very large old brick home et cetera. So that the the plant where it was on the hill or near the hill was standing. where it was well drained. I'm quite comfortable. Those people properly placed it by digging a wide but shallow hole. Getting planted probably did a little bit of acidifying the soil and then whatever they did they must have added a lot of organic because the tweet was flourishing. It's one that i would not plant certainly not a street tree and i've even cautious where i put it on a property. But we've caution in selection Talk about magnificent beauty you that snow a few weeks ago and then Probably even right now on through many many winters it just absolutely outstanding when when you think of nothing much happening in the wintertime think southern magnolia and think magnificence with the leaves partly snow them partly without snow snow under the tree sunshine on. It doesn't get any prettier than that but again not not advised for just the average callous use of our heavy clays but that's still magnificently to think about and i know there's a particular variety that you like. Michael is it's one call brown betty now I think it's probably the only one nurseries would have to sell and at for use in this area. It is known to be hardy against our cold. I suppose there could be an extreme below minus twenty. They take it out here in central ohio but that is so exceedingly rare that it is an app to happen and therefore with with the reliability on nursery people picking plants that are apt to grow in this area. I would think they're going to be seeing a tag that says southern magnolia and then the variety called brand betty. So that's Let's just say that's probably what you would find in the garden center or nursery now if the if in general the southern magnolia doesn't do well in the heavy clay soils what what type of soil prep to get this ready for planting well. That's that's a darn good question. Mark and like i say dig a hole that is measured depth so that you're not putting it to deepen toward our claim then where i always recommend that the whole at least twice as wide as the ball of the plant i would even go out of. We'll call it four times white so it's a two football. I'd be looking at a bid that is bordering on eight feet wide just to be sure that prepared the soil. I've had a lot of organic I might even put some grits in the soil. But it'd be careful don't use Don't use crushed limestone. 'cause that's that's the ads are opposite of acidifying and Then i would be careful that. It's not in a lower wet spot period as i say the tree that i saw and admired so much in passing by was on the edge of a hill to where i'm sure it had good drainage so that we're the plant does need water. It's it's capable of handling the heat and drought of summer in north carolina. But then when you water it you soak the daylights out of it yet. Excess drains away in the tree goes on and becomes beautiful.
What to do about black spots on my Dracaena?
"Collins. Says i have a. That's about a year old. It sits in a south facing window. I've started to notice clusters of black spots on the leaves. They don't rub off so. I don't think it's mildew i only wanted to plant when it's dry and the pot appears to be well drained. Do you have any ideas. Well i have an idea now. And that's all it is at this point not being able to see the leaves and him checking to to see if there's a fungus on them there still could be a fumble type of disease in those leaves. It could be that it is simply getting too much sun Amplified by the glass as a matter of fact in that south window You might try and moving to a spot where it would still get light from that south window but not not the plant would be to the side of the light pattern. That would be one of the things you're seeing is usually Except for us. He said he waters only when it's necessary and and that is the best way to handle those I know they can be killed quickly by over watering pot that doesn't have a drain or simply watering too often. And so on South window seems to be one of the things to be careful. And as i'm speaking of that. I'm thinking about where i have seen her sina and I'm i'm thinking of a couple of situations where they the plant had never been turned and they. I don't know how they were but they had literally leaned toward the window. And we're leaning against it and i think in this case it was an east window so it'll be just morning sun but it was the craziest looking and it had literally taken a nosedive over onto the window now beyond that then If he is where he could get the plant checked out. Take a leaf for two to a garden center where there are experienced people there and have them check to see. If it looks like it is indeed a fumble body and that wouldn't wipe off in many times leaf. We'll have fungal parts between the upper and lower layer and so on but i i have a hunch that it might be the direct south exposure. So maybe stay in that same room but just move out of the direct sun pattern. I that's about the only thing. I know telecom. 'cause sounds like he's doing everything else right and they're a plant can can age gently So i'd say give it a try.
Growing a String-of-Pearls Plant
"We're going to talk about a very hot house plant. There are trends in house plants. Last year was monster. It's probably still monster but one plant. That's super popular right now and i'm going to try really hard to pronounce this correctly but whatever i do i'm going to do it with conviction it's curio rally anise used to be called scenario rally ennis. And it's known as string of pearls or bead plant and this is in every magazine photo of an indoor garden. Everybody's crazy about this plant right now. Are you crazy about this plant sale. Well it it's funny. Because i recently did buy one i few years ago had a big rain chain out in my porch and i planted all of the cups in the rain. Chain with succulents. That's fantastic. I love the and and the top one i planted with this curio. The string of pearls so that they dangled down and over the edges. But it's funny that now it's kind of hard plant to find. I know at my garden center. They have a hard time finding growers. Who are growing this plant. So i just want to caution people because it suddenly you know what used to be a grandma plant that your grandmother had in her window and every time she wanted to give you some. You're older you're is right now. It is a hothouse plant. That people want partly. Because i mean that's pretty unusual to have a plant that instead of foliage has little green round beads. Right it's it's a cool looking plant. I'll give you that. It's a cool. It's a cool looking plant. It's also an easy plant for people who tend to not water. Their plants often enough and in fact the way that you can go wrong with this plant is by giving it too much water but as with most succulents you also need to have adequate light so waterboarding it in a room with no windows is not gonna be good for this plant. Either you need to have it in a window and probably not a north facing. It'll it'll survive in north facing window. But you'll notice longer pieces of stem between the little green balls and it won't be quite as luscious looking as it was when you bought it at the garden center. It's funny because you almost always see these in hanging pots. The cascade down or up on a pedestal so that they can cascade down so i thought to myself. How does this plant grow in nature right you. Can you can picture some of the Epa films all living in trees. And i thought is is a plant that lives in trees but it turns out. No it is not. This is a plant that is native to africa where it grows is a ground cover and this gives you a clue if you cannot find this plant somewhere but you have a friend who has it. Think about how it grows in nature. I know we say that all the time but it's a really good thing to do that. Plant the stems grow along the ground and where it makes contact with the ground it sends out roots and that indicates or should indicate to you that it will not be difficult to route a cutting of this plant. So if you want it and you can't find it and you have a generous friend. Maybe they'll give you a piece. I have never seen one actually bloom indoors. I'm sure that it could if you had a really bright window or greenhouse. But i have to say those flowers are so cool looking and this is also really weird. I know they kind of remind me of the corona virus because there they're white and they're round and they have these read statements that stick out all around the flower. So if you google it like the flower of string of pearls. You're going to see one of those things that looks like a depiction of the corona virus. But don't let that stop you from growing this plant please
President Trump Continues To Deny Election Results And President-Elect Biden Plans for His Presidency
"Briefing on monocle. Twenty four and welcome to today's edition of the briefing with me. Andrew miller the white house continues to echo with the post-election tantrum of us president donald trump who spent the weekend insisting series of the kind of all capital tweets which always indicate an ordered mind at work that november thirds election was rigged which wasn't and he won which he didn't president elect joe biden however seems to have decided that he has greater priorities than worrying about any further legal challenges. Launched by rudy giuliani from garden center. Parking lots and is focusing on plans for reviving a hopefully imminently post pandemic economy on joined by suzanne lynch washington correspondent for the irish times season. Welcome as always to the briefing. We'll look at joe biden's plans shortly but first of all is donald trump's wining actually gaining any traction. Is anybody taking him seriously. And i was there at the march on saturday now wasn't a million maga- march of as he'd predicted but there were tens of thousands of americans. They're waving flags and singing hymns in some cases holding signs saying the steel and alleging that the election has been stolen so he is getting a lot of traction from supporters and on conservative media gems. Here with on fox news for example bush. Look the facts are. The joe biden has won the election and as these various states moved to sir officially certify those election results in each stage. Who's is going to be happening in the next week or so. I think that it's going to become more likely. The deriving will become clear on the wall to donald trump. That it's time to go. And unfortunately though he is digging in as you say at science no sign of him conceding jaw and of course. The question is what's doing to american democracy. We've got a lot of 'small. I want a sizable minority of this country. Who believe the dumb from did not win the election even though he did so. I think it's a sorry state of affairs here. In this country that we now have a president who is refusing to concede does president elect joe biden basically appear to be a policy of ignoring him as far as possible. Yes yes. I think you're right out of there on. It's quite a clever policy. So it's almost like a child in the coroner's having a tantrum don't give them any attention. He just get an expert system toxic of strategy been taken by joe biden. He was at questioned on this last week and he did say it was an embarrassment and it was going to damage ed donald trump legacy but he did step back from launching a full scale attack on trump at particularly there is an issue now that a federal agency here. The gsa is using to at handover resources and information. If you'd like to the incoming president like it should so joe biden would be his rights there to criticize ups in clever to be averse holding back. If you know i put the moment so that strategy described exactly what he's adopting. I think one of the reasons he's doing that is because he knows that a lot of donald trump supporters at be this way and he has said during his campaign he wants to beautify reach out to the other side. If you like so. I think he's trying to tag anais and try not to inflame further tensions at a stage trying to lower the temperature. So that's the strategy. But i do think along with this goes on. It could become more problematic for example if they really are not going to hand over these resources. Gsa people are expecting. Maybe this week they will would. If that doesn't happen with then we really could see things become more tense here and with the biden campaign that i'm saying listen hang on. We need this information on his time feud handed over. We will doubtless cross that bridge when we get to it but for the moment what do we know of what. Joe biden plans to put into action. Once he does become president on january twentieth. Well he has said that in his first few days he's going sign executive orders whereby we expect him to rejoin the paris climate accord for example. Aba expect to happen at more. Also maybe something on immigration we for example. There's been the rumbling row about daca. There are the end. The kids known as dreamers. Young people who came to america brought to america by their parents illegally and they had been given amnesty essentially under the obama administration trump reversed. It got stuck in the courts but we expect maybe by to do something on this however other plans is due to unveil economic plan of some kind or make a speech today at in delaware but a lot of that is gonna be dependent on whether he democrats have controlled and the sanish at that looks unlikely it comes to senate runoff races in georgia in early january democrats have to win vocals raises which i think very tall ask if they don't if the only way one they're not in control of the senate republicans are and that is gonna make difficult for biden to push through some of his his policy issues on tax for example even energy and he's talking about not doing in green you deal but actually quite a progressive platform in terms of energy infrastructure. So that could be stymied by the by sanish. if republicans are in control there. What do we know as well about what. President-elect biden wants to do differently in terms of handling the pandemic obviously. There is good news on the vaccine. And there's been further good news just within the last hour as a. Us vaccine is now claiming to be ninety five percent Effective or thereabouts But that's still going to take weeks and months to implement a new cases are clearing one hundred thousand today. What does he want. America to do differently until that vaccine is ready to roll when it's been quite interesting in the last few days because one of the maggie appointed a new advisory board on corona virus is one of the members of the board has been doing interviews and the words lockdown has entered the lexicon here which on a national level and a lot of people are against us at here in this country. And you know nobody has mentioned the idea that we should have national lockdown and vigers now has netted the biden campaign has pushed back on that day. No no this is. Just one of my advisers is what we're considering so that would be considered very much to nuclear option here. As joe biden has to kind of tread carefully. The issue here is at each stage has a lot of power about how they handle the krona virus. So he's going to have his highness flow trying to add. Push through suggestions to republican control states. You know the governor saif kosher for example you know is a bit in. Denial about corona virus doesn't want many restrictions like high was joe biden going to ensure a national mandate for anything. It's going to be difficult and at the moment he has been talking about mask wearing. Because there's still a lot of resistance to the us in this country. As i saw on saturday after march were few people were wearing masks. That seemed to be what he's focusing on at the moment and the other thing would be my distribution of the vaccine making that more equitable already. The governor of new york has criticized on trump's plans. That saying that you know well off people will end up getting the vaccine not poor people who are more affected by cold so we expect to see him focusing more on that more equitable distribution of acting when we get faxing point suzanne ledge. Thank you as always. That was suzanne lynch with the irish times in washington.
Can You Use Vinegar Mixed With Water to Get Rid of Black Spot?
"And she says some of the plants that i'm bringing indoors from my deck have black spots on the leaves now. I read that apple cider. Vinegar mixed with water can be brushed on the leaves to kill the fungus. Have you ever heard of this. Yes definitely I have never done it. However i know people that do it. It's it's what i call a home remedy I would only cautioned the amount of vinegar in the water. So i would stay with one maybe two tablespoons in a gallon It will become Well if you if you get it too. Strong vinegar can be a weed killer. So let's go to that point but to To go one or two at the most dealers bones of vinegar in water and she could even dip them or brush it on or however you can do it but it should work to. At least it won't stop that black spot but it can stop the fungal bodies from growing and getting to be seed well into what it called. They're seen stage can stop the disease. But i don't think she can cured and make those leaves green again now. If you if fred hauer has black spot on some of the plants that he's going to bring inside what do you do. I don't bring them in now. Let me explain that I try to not foster things like blackspot however it is a fungal body is so very tiny. We never know it. We're breathing it. All the time is it. Lands as anyone Spore lands on a leaf of peony or a line lock or or whatever it may be I have one one peony. That is absolutely beautiful. Gray right now has nothing to do with the plants nature. So i won't even think about bringing that in I will cut it off at one inch above ground. I won't even put those leaves in the compost pile. They'll go into the trash And she can do the same now. sure what leaves she would be trying to preserve if she's trying to get a given plant seed head and leaves and all to come along if she wants to make a bouquet and and etcetera because i i use dried bouquets here She could indeed dip or use that solution to stop the disease from well from advancing on the leaves that she's bringing in and it certainly could stop it from carrying over into the next year is just reduction reducing the chances of one more sport case but as i say Next year that's going to be those little spores in the air. Everything that can contract a fungal disease which in this case is Well anyhow it is is just one of those things where next year the very plants that she's taking the cuttings from and so on. She should start in the spring knowing that they are susceptible to the audi mildew start spraying them to keep that from getting to be a problem during the course summit. Needless to say when. I mentioned that i totally beautiful great. Dna it's not good It's it's attractive where it stands and so on but i. I don't even want to think about that. Carrying over. because that means that plant unto itself is susceptible and. I want to get all the sports. I can't wait from it so it's one of those things where yes One of the one of the things that she can even do is along with the cider. Vinegar she can use one or at the very most tablespoons of horticultural oil. Now that's just it is We well it's a horticultural. Oil is listed such on the in the garden center on the shelves and so on. It's very highly refined so it's not like oils that are used as a Well pre grow season situation for other things but It will stop both the carryover of insects and insect eggs by using the horticultural oil. The vinegar will hopefully slow down or stop the black spots and so on and go from there now Backwards to black spot. I have very few roses anymore. One of them is. It never has had a touch blackspot. One of them is almost killed every year And i just kind of let it happen but Well prevention is the key to bomb insect problems and disease problems.
Hope Springs - Growing Flowers From Seed, Clare Foster
"Welcome back to our conversation with clear Foster Gardiner writer editor sharing with us about her garden life journey especially, as it relates to growing flowers from seed were back to hear more about the different kinds of flowers to grow from seed including annuals by annuals, grasses, herbs, perennials, and more. When I look at the. The table of contents and see. How that flows? What criteria did you to set for your contents and the flowers you would include which aren't always traditional flowers. They are also flowering herbs, flowering grasses, It's a, it's a lovely wide range. Will thank you. Yeah. It's it wasn't encyclopedic in any way we didn't want it to be really we we wanted to include the plants and the flowers that we will really growing and that we knew worked really for people. So, cutting flowers and as well as herbs and the the more the edible side of things Yeah. So we really focused on on the plants that the that we were we were growing and that we could recommend first hand. and and I think again because Sabina was working for children seeds and had access to different varieties we were quite Specific in varieties that we were recommending even though those change all the time I mean this quite a few. Varieties now of a certain flowers that we would have put in and they've the because they they just changed the the whole time and find new things. New Exciting colors. So yes. So just just the the the plants, the that we recommend ourselves I think was the the main criteria. And the publishers wanted us to do the be friendly section which I think was a very good idea actually because I think there's a loss of interest in. Oversee ecology and biodiversity biodiversity at the moment and insects in particular. Yeah and I I. Really. This is one of the things that resonated with me about the book when it first came across my desk was the way it is you know it's a pretty straightforward book. It's about growing flowering plants from seed to fill out your your garden over the course of the season. on one level, and then when as I was reading, I kept sort of making little ticks along the margins or underlining because he does get to a lot of universal cultural conversations. The gardening world is having is grappling with right now that I think are all important and you know among those would be Ecological and Seed bio-diversity. So you know just the fact that of trying to grow from seed opens up for almost any Gardner a whole range of plants you would never find at the local garden center and it also then as you are seeing, as C. J. changes changes with the trends if you are growing from seed in that seat is able to come true from seed that you know it reproduces for itself. You are also protecting the biodiversity in A. City of seed so it gets to cede sovereignty and. And I think that is a I'm not sure what it's like in the UK. But that is a very big topic of conversation here for heritage varieties for culturally significant varieties among different groups of people. The indigenous seed keepers network comes to mind immediately the seeds of the African diaspora here in the US is it's a big part of that garden communities, conversation and then you know you, you mentioned the fact and it's clear if you ever grow from seed, it's much more. Economical you spend a lot less money. You create a lot less plastic waste in the world because you don't come home with your you know ten I'm not sure what the equivalent would be in the UK. But you're fourteen dollar one gallon pots using a lot of soil that comes from somewhere and water and and whatever chemicals might have been put on it at the nursery you bypass all of that which I think is an important thing to point out and Made me laugh when I saw comment on one of your instagram posts claire from Genie Blom who said you know annuals are going to save the world and Which is, which is true. But you you never you never preach these things in the book they come up as a result of what you're what you're. Educating people about and sharing with people because you never get far from the fun and the color and the joy. So. As you were working on the book with Sabina were some of these bigger cultural conversations sort of. At the forefront for you. Yes. Yeah I think so. the trouble is with with the book of of of this sort of this size. Is. You're limited with your word count. Quite the lot of text was cut, which is, which is a bit of a shame in a way but but yes, absolutely, I mean these things it is the subtext for the for the whole book. Ready. But more than anything I think an keeping that content that the simplicity simplicity of the framework. Was Key because I just want to encourage people to try to try doing it. And and Yes for the fun of it and the Colorado Avalanche in the garden. And and and. For The expense lack of expense that you can create your own garden so cheaply and so quickly I mean I've just you know I haven't had to ask by any annuals for my pots this year I've grown from seed and and And it so satisfying I, mean just just the whole process of it I I didn't think I can kind of do without it now it's something that.
The confusing world of potting mix ingredients
"There is a huge and confusing world of blunt potting mixes out there. You've ever stood in the garden center. bags and not quite sure what to buy. Then I'm here to help and I've elicit another expert to odd that up on the matter my guest this week missed a house plot. Ak Vlada Nicholas Cage is a house plant care specialist from Washington, D. C. With a huge following on Instagram, and he also makes them pretty awesome tiktok videos to I. I came across him via a wonderful Tiktok where he was doing a matchup between computer games and House Plant Care, which is absolutely brilliant. Open link to that in the show notes because we're GONNA be doing some decoding of posing mixes I'm working out exactly what you need I. Guess. The first question is, do you need to make your own bespoke potting mixes from individual ingredients or can I buy something off the shelf? Here's missed the house plans thoughts on the matter. There are two general types of wanting me sold out there. You have mixed plants for succulents and CACTI. We'd succulent Yes. The lot of them are good in you could use straight out of the bag. However with tropical makes in most cases for most Hobby House from growers. This use some extra of the bag. The main reason is most of these commercial makes or not or. Yes. It's all about the holes. POROSITY is really important concept to grasp when it comes to choosing your house plant potting mixes and the truth is that not all hose grated equal in soil water narrow held in for spacey's in between particles in these horse can be different sizes. We can generally classify his micro pores or lower floors in microprocessors smokers. These breweries they're often leads it to the naked eye while Mike reports are not in my reporters important for who who'd area because they hold oxygen. Whereas Mike reporters are important for absorbing holding water so It's important to maintain both adequate. In water supply for all planned growth in a city to have both micro in. In the soil. In when they say the most policies aren't enough. They don't have a lot of these reports. They don't provide a lot of Austin for the roads. In order to have a good solid structure, it has both micro might reports you need a goods ratio of small medium, large particles in particles of different sizes. Probably most commercial mixes the problem is a they contained mostly Moss, which consists of very fine particles. So you'd have only only fine particles the slow only pretend micro voice, which means it will retain water. You won't have a lot of oxygen into also compact very easily. If you've listened tonight sustainability episodes, then hopefully, you'll have some awareness of the sustainability issues that are surround Pete and its use in house plan compost. But it remains the fact that many many production nurseries still supply their house plants in potting mixes that contain an extremely high level of Pete. So how come those nurseries can grow plants the look amazingly lush and well but when we get those plants into our homes with and don't change the potting mix they start to struggle well, fortunately Vlad's on hand to explain that as well when a plant is getting locked to light it photosynthesis more and as a result three, pulling more water from the soil. What this means, the roots will not be sitting in west, salt for a long time. So the chances overthrow brought will be low. And this is why plant nurseries can grow in these next. Nurseries provide huge amounts of light. They have ruled stay have walls made out of glass. Fifty Times more than the plants in our homes. So nurseries actually need party makes they retain a lot of water which is why they can use these leaks. Straight out of the bag, but the problem with growers is bid. We don't have this salon life in our homes and. Most people even if they do have a lot of wife. Did Not provide to their clans is deeply usually choose plan place from based on that where to look good noth- according to how much light is to get in a plant doesn't get a good amount of lights it will synthesize less and. Pulling less water from the soil meaning, they will be sitting sweat soil longer and increase. Should you be changing the soil on your new house plants? The me get them home from the nursery. This is a subject of enormous debate in various house plant forums. But here's Vlad take plants in nurseries. They usually go through periods of very. Intense growth and the soil that the coming could be. Deficient imaging by the time you get them. So if plans is Lutheran deficiency, of course when giving new so soon as you can continue developing well, also there is accumulation of salts in the soil over time, they will burn the roads. So the longer you leave a plan inside soil more damaging will have on the roads. So If a plant needs to be deported usually. Again.
How Can I Amend the Potting Mix in My Outdoor Planters for Next Year?
"He has a bunch of pots and wooden boxes that he put plants in this year and instead of doing a garden next year, he's going to do the pots again must've liked it. So he says, what should he do to the soil? Once this year's crops are ready for to get them ready for next year. Once everything's done this year he says they had fresh potting soil in them this season and he's wondering if he should amend that with maybe Peat Moss or compost well, no First of all, I like his idea and and You can indeed grow a lot of things in in pots I. I've seen five gallon buckets with holes in the bottom that that you can grow things in. I've seen some of the fanciest horse jobs that you can imagine that are mega priced the that are all going this direction now There's a cautionary statement that has to be made at least in my opinion where if plants that are in this current years growth or any current years growth start to show divac that would if you took it to a garden center and they help you make a decision what it is, if they say that it is a fungal material. Or, bacterial or whatever. Then I would start thinking in terms of a complete change out of the soil. But until that happens where where a professional grower wouldn't dare. Put ponding material back in the old file and grinded up into it because of disease carryover and crop insurance and all this good stuff. But if the home owner such as myself I have baskets that I simply take down stack I, throw a piece of plastic over don't run constantly wet, dry, frozen, and so on, and then in the spring because there has been some shrinkage of that soil, it's on, I will add more actual just putting soil however it depends on the I'll call it the. Context in terms of Peat Moss. I'm a Big Peat Moss Lover Because of its water holding capacity and drainage. Now, that's one of the main ingredients in many of the potting soil because it does imbibe water and hose it only until the X. can drain away then moves back in the soil, and that of course is quite idea for all plants.
Why Is it Hard to Find Burning Bush in Most Nurseries?
"Carry. Send in a question and she says this year I tried to buy more burning Bush for our yard because I like the fall color but our local nursery has discontinued carrying them. They told us that burning Bush is now considered an invasive plant. Why is this and can you recommend some other plants that will give good fall color? Well, I I. Think I got answer all of that and and let's start with what invasive means burning Bush does not have a flower. That's very conspicuous at all. You have to be looking for it to find it no big deal in the spring. However, the little fruit that set are almost nut like and they drop to the ground or birds eat them to get the well the outside of the little seed head off and so on, and then of course, they make droppings off through the woods and it Cetera most of those seeds are viable and most of them therefore turn into burning Bush burning Bush. Is Most, beautiful to us when it's out in full sun the more sun it gets usually the more red you get. However, it is a denizen of the darker woods and it is much like honeysuckle and probably just a close second from the invasiveness of honeysuckle the wherever, wherever tends either dropped eight or going to become plants, and as they move well as they grow and then repeat the cycle off through the woods. It's actually clogging the floor of the woods that is detracting from our normal natural native plants. So that's that's kind of why it's. Bad I actually many people most people are probably not going to deal with burning Bush thinking. It's still beautiful in the fall. However, I have to compliment on air the nursery garden center, whichever it was that is no longer can handling the plant.
Identifying Sedges and Rushes
"GONNA start off with a section for the plant new talking about what the differences are between surges, grasses and rushes and C. L. had a pneumonic device or saying that I really liked and I. Bet. It's going to help you remember what the differences are. So C L would you share that with US please note this sort of to my mind when I was at the Garden Center where I work the other day and one of my fellow employees, he brought a a plant but some customer had growing in his lawn and he said I always get confused between the correct the sensors and the grasses, and I'm not sure which this is and he gave it to me and I said, well, here's how you can remember said just have edges Russia's are round and grasses have nodes from the tips to the ground. I like that one a lot. It's a good thing to help people figure out how to identify their own plants for so many reasons first of all, because you know it's good to know what you have but second of all, if you come across something unexpected or unknown in your garden, maybe something you didn't plant it'll help you figure out whether it's something you want to keep in your garden something you WanNa pass along to a friend or something you WanNa, throw on the compost pile so Let's start with having edges because it's such a nice raw and said just which is the genus Karic's right We have a native such as I think in every state first of all and important to know what they are because sometimes I know in my area people say, Oh, what is that grass that is growing in the woodland and it's so pretty and nobody ever knows that I want that in my yard right but it isn't a grass, it's a and it's either character Pennsylvania or or. Appalachia and these are native such as in our area, and they are beautiful and the edges is they just have a blade that has an edge, the outside edges, and then Kinda fooled in the middle and that goes all the way down in the plant. So so she cut in cross section, it would almost triangular. That's right. Yeah. That's right and one of the really nice things to my to my mind because my. House in Pennsylvania is in the woods and what I love about the characters that. So many of them will tolerate some shade whereas in in the ornamental grass category there there are some grasses that will tolerate but most of them, really like full sun. So using a character is a great way to get that shape into your garden. If you've gotTa Shadier spot the native ones, they are beautiful dark green, their drought tolerant. So they are not spreaders like grasses are usually they're mo- grow more in clumped, but once they get established in an area. They are fairly thick and almost look like a very long lawn in shade, and so they're very pretty and then there are those variegated ones or any number of them that make either great single specimen plants in your garden. Or make great ground cover I have carrots ice dance in my garden, and that's a very vigorous grower and as such, it makes a great ground cover and another way to use these characters. Especially, some of the larger ones some of them that are maybe a little bit taller than you might expect ground cover to be is. A great transition plant. It helps link different parts of your garden bed together. So if you've got a MAGENTA flower here in an orange flower here and you don't particularly want them next to each other plant, some carrots in between in in some kind of interesting shape with a curve and and help the the garden, make the transition from one color to another and if you use a variegated variety of. You're going to have that color in your garden all season long because it's not something that you plant for its flowers, you get the color from the foliage itself. So let's talk a little bit about Russia's when we have both. Russia's that are native and Russia's that are not and they are indeed round. They have a blade that comes up oftentimes they have a little flower on the end of that round leaf and we often find Russia's growing in places where the soil is a little bit moist. Although, I will say that in my area of new, England John Fuses is our native rush and I see that kind of popping up willing to take its chances in drier areas as well. So and these are very pretty plants. They are pretty and they have I mean the texture. So interesting. So you mentioned that there round and unlike the. If you caught a blade of a rush. In half and Cross section, you would see that round shape of the stem, some of the taller ones. Open and spreading sort of vase like shapes. So it's a plant that you can see through and appreciate the structure of the plant almost like a living sculpture in your
Rejuvenation and Propagation With Ken Druse
"I called you the other day and I'm like Oh, it's a mess everything. So overgrown and I'm telling you about my call is that's taken the. Anna's hip in the Salvia swamped by the whatever and you're laughing at me and so. What's the time for can? Besides facelifts. But just just because you aren't having guests visit doesn't mean you let the whole thing go to pot. Or you're thoughts go to pot. He's GonNa Discipline Me I publicly out loud on the radio. You said, you're pinching things so they get kind of thicker but. You May. It may be time to cut stuff back I. Guess I'm I'm using a modest sounding verb but yeah, you're right some cutbacks will you I have these big balls you've been here and you know people who visited if seen them through like big low terra cotta bowls on the patio and other places they're kind of you know and I group smaller pots around them but they're they're sort of the big statement centerpiece things for my annuals usually and and you know. Not. Everything grows at the same rate and put it all in when it's small, you know little things from the garden center but then something's grow more lushly than others and so like the Coleus, for instance. 'cause you know. Yeah. When you're cutting those Coleus bag you you mentioned that you could route them in water. You can also in some situations, just stick them back in the same container if you've got space and then that'll get even more lush and full without hanging over and losing its Bottomley's and stuff. Because, when you when you pinch or break off that parent plant branch and you'll get more leaves on that one, and then you have these pieces that you can either sticking or route in water or I like to use per light. Okay. So containers with like a pot of per light. SMALLPO- of per light and. Moist in the per light Tampa down really hard that really seems to help, and then I drill a hole in the per like with a pencil and sticking my cutting and firm the per light back around the cut and again, and you want to remove a couple of bottom leaves of the cutting the cuttings about. Four to six nodes long. So it's depending on the type of plant. Three to five inches long and some some plant. Coleus. Might route and two to four weeks. Then you have a new plant with roots and you carefully pry it out of the per light or in the case of water, you want to move it when the roots are less than an inch and a half long and sometimes roots made him water have a little trouble adjusting to a lower oxygen or higher oxygen medium. But anyway, you can stick them back in the same container that you took them from or just what you need Margaret. Another container of Coleus definitely need that. That's absolutely what I need. 'cause I'm doing such a good job managing the ones that I have this year. But seriously it has been kind of an epicure in the sense of We all are realities are changed Completely you know our patterns of life are changed. I mean, I'm stating the obvious and and on top of that in our region and many other regions, there's been severe weather so we have had. I've had almost no rain until a hurricane in fact, I should ask you how did you do during the hurricane that was just a couple of days ago I had a couple of inches of rain. Outages Day or two but not. Terrible terrible like many areas nearby had much. No, you were praying for rain. Also, a lot of areas they're still places New Jersey that don't have electricity. We lost power for almost twenty four hours. But we had five and a half inches of rain, and then that's stopped and then the wind came in the wind was really a lot of wind but. Knock would not trees and I've got tree did trees here. So I thought Oh that's GonNa be something there was there was one stick about four and a half feet long from the ash tree that was stuck into the lawn straight up. It's always funny when that happens in a big storm when it's also like spear gets thrown and it yeah, it really lands like right as if someone. INSERTED. It with with force while someone did. Yeah. Now, I had a couple of inches of rain and ninety. I keep saying to myself is this whole year? The theme weatherwise has been it never rains, but it pours it won't rain for a month practically and then we get the torrential gully washers. It's almost no rain. Yeah. Half. An hour of tons of you know you think finally and then it turns out it's dry under the trees sometimes. And you got to listen to half an inch but I was thinking about what we were talking about just before if you make a new plant and you potter it up of Coleus or a sweet potato vine or Begonia. You can carry. You can try to carry that over in a very sunny window inside and by March that's probably not going to be a very pretty plant, but you can cut that back and it'll make new growth and then make cuttings of the new growth and you can save a lot of money because you can use that to fill your those cuttings to fill your containers.
Season Extending with Niki Jabbour
"So so here we are I'm waiting for my first ripe tomato as well, poly, tunnel or no poly tunnel because I don't have one. But you know I know I need to start fresh with some other crops tonight for instance put in another row of Bush beans the other day and you know so. What are some of the food crops and a lot of people who are listening are probably new listeners new readers of the website you know. Lot of people have gotten into the throes of gardening this year in great numbers, and even some experience gardeners have like. Expanded what they're doing because of the the sort of situation out there so if we haven't stretched the season before really if we haven't grown. The second or third sewing of this like what are the things that you would want us to try your hand up most of all? I think the most important thing to i. realize is that anybody can succession plant growing up I had this. We had this little family vegetable garden, and we never succession planted, so when initial crop of beans was done that was it we never had were beans, and now as you mentioned kind of us up every square inch of my garden, but even people listening who maybe are in condos or only have a deck. You can still succession plan pot, so everybody could should be success and planting if you definitely want to get as much food as possible this season. So for me right now. I am putting more Bush beans in like you said every two to three weeks until mid-july I will put Bush beans in I'm also planting fall crop of sugar snap peas I'm talking Zucchini and cucumbers in the garden because they take anywhere from fifty to sixty five days, and I still have that in my season before that frost, even with the fall factor worked in so this time for that. You know soon it'll be time. Time to for the fall and winter, carrots and beets, and of course cabbages, cauliflowers, all of those cabbage cousin Crops Broccoli. I'm starting them indoors right now under my grow lights that I can put them in the garden in about four weeks, because if I direct so those in the garden there, it's going to be hard to keep those little seeds and seedlings happy in the intense heat incentive summer class the slugs. Even though it's been dry, they have been. Just brutal. Describe this year I mean it'll be hot and sunny out there. handpicking slugs explain it, but they're multiplying like crazy. I'm picking teeny tiny ones. Giant fat ones about point where all of a handful of slimy slugs. I don't even care anymore I'll just. I'll just keep on picking them. So I do like to start something's indoors undergraduates, because it's a little easier than trying to nurture them along in the garden when the soils hot and dry right, so that's one of your tactical approaches is to start it in a more controlled environment, and have these like homemade plugs to plug in when you see that square foot come available when you pull some of that lettuce right? Yeah, and it's one of the easiest things you can do if you have girl lights. Because even like mentioned lettuce. Let us won't germinate when it's hotter than I don't know the Fahrenheit but twenty seven Celsius so probably eighty Fahrenheit I guess so. If you want the lettuce fall and winter start them in doors and mid to late August. Plug them in your garden when there are a couple of weeks old and you'll just bypassed the frustration of trying to keep the seeds and seedlings happy in again that hot dry soil right now. The list you just gave which I know it wasn't like the comprehensive list at you're reading from a script or something, or from one of your books by the way but it includes almost everything except for like tomatoes, peppers, eggplants, and potatoes. Right I mean it's. It's pretty comprehensive that you can push a lot of things. You can do it again with a lot of things and. Although Margaret, you're making me feel a little guilty because I actually have a few tomato suckers I've rooted. And I'm just going to try to put those in and see what happens, and I might have accidentally gone to a garden center today and I might have accidentally bought another pepper plant, so we'll see what happens. Nor I wouldn't plant those and early July, but I'm going to give them a I'm gonNA. Put them in pots I'm GONNA put them in my poly tunnel and maybe I'll still get harvest from this year I. You know I. Don't think it's a bad thing to experiment and try new things. Sometimes it works. Sometimes it doesn't,
Early June: You Can Still Plant
"I would like to say, is that for most people in most parts of this country? Early June is not too late to plant. Now there may be some areas you know in the Florida, you know Texas where it's very hot already. Even in those areas you can probably put in some of those heat, loving plants, tomatoes, eggplants that stuff. Yeah, yeah, but in most parts of the country you can still be planting in early June, and frankly through most of June and it. You can still plant some things from seed so if you haven't yet. Yet put in seeds for your summer squash or your cucumbers or your beans get them in the ground now the warmer soil temperatures will mean that those things will be right out of the ground and up and running, and we'll just catch up. You'll be amazed at how quickly they catch up and other things like the Salads and the Rubella and crops like carrots and radishes by all means plant though seats so are you saying that the warmer soil temperatures will shorten the germination time on those seeds? Yes, yes, though the warmer the soil, the shorter. Shorter Germination time for most plants you can plant a lettuce seed in April in it might take two to three weeks to germinate that same lettuce seed in May might take a week to germinate, and that led a seed in June will be up and three days. Well, that's great especially. If you're an impatient, Gardner like me now I wish I hadn't planted my lettuce seeds. Already because I'm going out there every morning and I'm looking and I'm like where are you? Where are you come on, show your face. Okay, that's good to know it is. Is Not, too. I think a lot of people do think if they haven't already started their seeds by June that they've missed the boat and I'm glad to know that that's not the case that's right and in terms of planting from plants, you know it is a little late to start a tomato from seed right in the ground, but you can certainly plant tomato plants and eggplant plants and pepper plants now so it's not too late to get those in the ground implant form if your garden centers still have them or if you have had them. By your kitchen window, or or in a place you are feeling more and more guilty that you have put them in the ground that happens to a lot of us. Don't feel guilty. Just get them in the ground. I have a friend in Wisconsin and so he's like zone four and he posted the other day on facebook. Because other people are saying Oh. Yeah, there. These are tomatoes. Got Them Ready I'm going to put him outside and he's like. Don't do it. We're going to get some more frost up here and he. He really is a hardcore about this, and he said he said. Said I don't want the earliest tomatoes I want the most tomatoes, so he waits, and he puts his tomato plants out later, because then they are more vigorous, and they do produce better because those soil temperatures are warmer, so take a lesson from that it's not just a matter of last frost date that's deceiving without testing the temperature of your soil with the soil thermometer. You can get a good idea of soil temperature by what your nighttime temperatures are, and if the nighttime temperatures in your area are going below fifty at night, then the soil is too cold for those warm weather crops. But once you can look at that long range forecast in you see that the nighttime temperatures are reliably above fifty for the next seven to ten days. That's a sign you can plant, and for some regions like northern Vermont to and Cape. Cod and northern Wisconsin that fifty degree at night often doesn't come until into June well I. think that's the perfect takeaway and we should end it right here. I did not know that about nighttime temperatures, being reflective of soil temperatures, and I would say to all of our burgeoning vegetable growers there. That's the most important takeaway from this
Try to Help Local Growers During Pandemic
"Know that during these. Pandemic Times, but it's been hard on a lot of businesses, but especially Oh, especially, the local mom and pop type businesses out there and when it comes to the garden centers. If, you're going to go out and buy your annuals or buy something like that they might be. The wants to go to I. Well I would agree mark now I the bigger growers in and Cetera I'm going to allow to handle themselves, but on on the specialty places smaller. Well they're. They're beyond mom and pop by all means, but at the same time they're. They're smaller growers. I have heard the amount of the gas bill per November December January February March It's thousands of dollars a month to heat the greenhouses in which they're growing the annuals that we're either have planet or ready to plant. They have hundreds and hundreds of hanging baskets in the top of these greenhouses They've built them they. They had the basket itself. They have the soil. They have the flowers in 'em. Then they hang them and drop water tubes down in them for watering purposes, they again a significant investment in each and every one of these things and. Right now I think there probably is some overstocking and I well I have my personal preferences in terms of where to buy flowers, but at the same time I would rather go to somebody that has put things in a bigger basket. That will stay well. Let's just say with being cramped routes longer into the season. they they build in much more color and interest in character into the plants, some hanging some right etc. I I'm just going to recommend strongly the where I. Do not have any details and I'm not sure WANNA. Know Me know. I would I would like to suggest that these growers may have some overstock. They may have some deals for your even if they can just turn their cost over, they will have maybe one in this pan-demic, because this this market shutdown, all of which is critically necessary. Happened right when they should be coming into strong growth, having finished crops ready, and so on so If you never bought a flower before or hanging basket, do it now and consider your local grower.
Tomato Success with Craig LeHoullier
"You're also like a lot of people this year though you're sort of exploring new territory literally you are but a lot of people. There's been this enormous. I mean I was talking again for that story in. The Times talked to thome stearns of high mowing organic seeds and he was saying they had a three hundred percent increase in Gardner Home Gardener sales this year and some weeks. They were up as much as five times normal week to week. And and so many people gardening garden centers or having bumper business even though with the restrictions and so forth on on on shopping. And so you know you're a little bit of a new gardener too because you're new snow as you're absolutely right and the PRI the perfect timing of our move at a time where you know there are some really real challenges and difficulties with covert. I get to go through and share an experience of what it's like to garden in a new zone in a new area when confronted with New Space. New Decisions to make. So I you know all of us you and I are both and there was many of educators and in garden coaches and people who are trying to inspire new gardeners to stay gardens forever. So I'm hoping that opportunity allows me to share what I'm doing the things that succeed the things that go wrong. I'll be very open about all of it and then learn what. I can about gardening in Hendersonville in my particular yard this year. And we'll make some adjustments next year so I am you know. I've been gardening. Forty years to be able to still be as excited about gardening. Forty years into a hobby is just to me It makes it a very unique cobby. Don't you think and we'll also give people the heads up that you've been doing these really fun which I've been coming to. Instagram lives on Fridays. And sometimes at other times Friday afternoons and you're at NC tomato man on instagram. And you people can like ask you questions the new show us how you're doing things and what stage the plants are out and I mean they can just chime in and say what do I do about this. How do I stay that? What so? Let's talk about some of the things I mean I think in Raleigh you grew in Straw bales and in growing bags that were set on the surface of your very famous driveway. Your driveway driveways right. Yes and where? Where are you growing tomatoes and other things now? Are you growing in daggs in bales? Are you growing in the ground? What are you doing now? So we're we have about a quarter of nacre backyard that is quite sunny and but we have our septic field back there so one of the things I did not rush into is getting a shovel and digging up the soil I learned a lot about container gardening. Straw Bale gardening but will focus mostly in container gardening. And we'll definitely growing. I garden for years and years and years traditional garden. And so you never really forget about that experience. But it's it's a work in progress because I've got. Let's see twenty nine plants planted but another seventy or eighty that needs to get in there and they will probably go into ten gallon. Containers grow bags. You know. Maybe some going container. So it's you're catching me where it's a work in progress and figuring out day by day as I go along. What's the worst thing you ever did to a tomato may? Maybe the worst thing that ever did to to a tomato when it still rewarded me is we do seedling. Sales in the spring and all gardeners have lots of things that you don't sell. Don't get given away get forgotten. They just sit there so I had some sun goals that were at least two months past sales type they were. They were a foot and a half tall of just a stem with maybe a few leaves coming off it and they even. They didn't look very good. So I'd find those and thinking. Oh I've got space for another son Gold and they just bury. It is deep as I can and it leaves out in it produces delicious son go so I guess. The moral of the story is tomatoes. Tough gardeners I think in general especially new gardeners really. Don't WanNa make mistakes and we tend to maybe over care for and baby are plants. And I've learned through the years that tomatoes really do respond well to some tough love along the way. There's very few things that actually will kill them and make them disappear. Some of those things have teeth and But yeah they're very forgiving and You know we'll probably talk through some tips in this in this chat we have about what do you do? What are the things to do to help build in quality from the Front? And what are the things you do over the course of a season to ward off really sad stories and just put a smile on your face at the end of the season. Because you've you've succeeded you've got what you want. You've got delicious tomatoes and on the table in jars in the Freezer. So you just talked about that stretched out spindly overgrown overdue transplant of the Sun. Gold and how you can really deep also up north. We haven't planted because it's been snowing and stuff and even in a lot of other places people quite a bit to the south halfway between you and me or more people have had some frosts recently. It's been really nutty so not to worry. If you haven't planted yet folks I have a friend who even here up north one year. He was so busy with work assignments. He didn't plant tomatoes till July fourth weekend and he had the best rocky ever had but one of the things with an overgrown planners Finley plant like you said is planet really deep because they can make those adventitious roots off the stem right. There are plant. That can do that. So they can. Really root in Super deep not suffocating. It right absolutely and I actually also plant eggplant peppers deeply a As a few friends of call me I tend to be a bit of a rule breaker and yes. I read books and I read blogs but then I kind of put my thinking cap on and I think why can't I try this? And it has helped me to develop some new variations on techniques through the year and You know succeed more often than not. So we'RE GONNA WE'RE GONNA plant deep. I plant even a normal six inch. Kind of a seedling. Stout small seedling. That's maybe six weeks or so growing. Muno that I might have grown myself. I plant them deep. Do you take off the lower leaves. Do you create a splash like barrier to get prevents fungal spores from the soil from getting up onto that plant. Like what's your sort of I. How do I put it in the ground? And what am I thinking about? When I'm transplanting? So great question and it's a it's a really wonderful thing for beginners to consider as well because You may you may be looking to garden area. That's been gardened a long time he may be looking at something that you're just digging for the first time yourself. You may have a container. I think it's really good right from the start Your stand we're kind of soil you've got so is it. Does it dream? Is You if you dig a hole in? It rains that rain still there the next day or do you dig a hole in it. Rains and the water gone in five seconds. That tells you if you're to sandy during too quickly you're not retaining water so those roots are always going to be searching or if you've just got so much So much of a barrier to drainage that your roots are literally going to drown the plants. GonNa look like it's dry because it's wilting. But it's actually drowning because it's not getting oxygen so working organic matter and soil and maybe sending the sample off to an extension service just to get an idea if your three main trans n. p. k. nitrogen phosphorus potassium are in good balance At that point on you just dig a nice like you said Various much as the stem as you can or if you dig deep you can dig. How're you can dig diagonal and kind of been the plant in? Berry that stem because of photo tropism the plant grow up right. It may stick out of the ground bent but it will go right up toward the sun. It's almost like a trench and the two thirds of the stem is below. The root ball is at one end. Say at the left and then the most and sort of been the upper part in the upper couples. That's up and then you fill in that trench and your tomato will again. Can you say it will grow up

"And it's been Chris, and which walking to John Stanley from Australia, and we're talking to sit Reisch who is from America. Sit is a director of American hold and with connections to the garden centre group and John. Is consultant who flies around the world. Sit drives around America. And we're gonna lost them some interesting questions on garden centers. So without further ado and this tantalizing question for both of them. If I were to open a garden center today. What would be your recommendation and your ideas in terms of what the trends are right now for independent garden centers where it's going is the good ideas at a bad idea. What would you include? What would you not include because typically an independent garden centre has little bit of everything the focuses clamp material? And then they'll have probably landscaping services, and perhaps some add ons of pottery, and such it may be some pharmaceuticals clap harm, suitable fit is the traditional way the way to go. When you see happening. What's the growing trend in independent garden centers? That's a long question. Can we break that into? Yeah. I part of there's one word answer. Don't don't don't open or start a garden centre garden centre is not what you wanna do for the future. You wanna create a? Retail experience for the consumer that is built around the guard. But is not a place to go for everything that you could want related to. The the big picture is that we want people to come to experience the garden a different way than what we're used to see and a good way to think of that. I wrote down the mood accessible accessible, you know, the garden should be perhaps the most successful thing to center lives. It really should. It's around us. You know, it's out there. All we have to do is go out and get involved in it. And when you say the garden, you mean the room outside you can meet your lawn. You can mean your vegetable garden convenient flower garden, you mean, whatever's growing pretty much wherever plants could be experienced it could be indoors to there's an indoor guarding their house plants, those types of things that you can be involved with and you know, it's easy as getting one on touch walk outside the door. Even if it's a weed Atlanta lion is food. Can I just follow the through the Alabama? All he's one of the good news of the industry are now is. Rather? Experienced had a love of you in the industry, and she Comference two years ago said I garden center is confusing to a millennial as best buy as to my grandmother. So just to follow that through. We have set a garden centers to confuse the consumer of today. We put too much stuff in the. Malaka supermarket than any job experience or lots of. The garden center was sort of accidental success. It was a result of by product of the population as a baby members. So we had millions of homes built across America suburbia pumped up, and what happened what we needed lawns. Trees. Trump's and thanks to basically, create a. Something other than just so that's where the whole concept really arose out of. And it's not that it's a bad thing. But the fact is that actually relatively low percentage of baby boomers ever did anything with gardening. We missed the majority actually. So if when we look forward, let's be inclusive. Lots include everyone, this is an acceptable thing. It's freedom people, and it's just a matter of desire, and it's also inexpensive if you do in comparison to other things that we do the cost of a hamburger fast food joint is much more expensive than cost of a plant at wherever you can. Point a bit different than. In the future. I think if we look at it in terms of this is just part of who people are there's a people plant connection that's natural and built and we're born this way, there's not a person on earth living breathing that doesn't have some degree of spring fever when spring rolls. We feel fall in the air. This is all part of experience of nature implants, so it's part of and it's acceptable everyone. How can we make that available to everybody? Can we enable them through that? Can we put this in perspective, but the photo of Agung from meal tonight, we will spend more money tonight than the average American spends on that garden any ah? I'm not going expense of the that's pussy perspectives. Analyst honest together quitting financial perspective. But let's more restaurants. So so that leads me to another intro. I in question an ago's back to the eighteen vegetables of the right time of the year. And if you think about it, we've got a completely clear sky tonight. So we get lots of date, which we wouldn't be getting all boxing, Dole's or not boxing, all air, conditioned, cau- or all books in the big bulbs, but we won't around. And so it's more than just an experience gardening. It's actually a healthy pursuit of of how we should be living. And so what we're really saying is that you check you want to change back to a healthy living experience. Which would include sued. So we've got to include. We very first interview was with the lady who grows hundreds of vegetables with an inning among stole her landscape here in town, and it was explicit Wilson. I think that somehow we have to educate people in that way. And that may be what the doll centre needs to needs to laugh to trail around it self that gives people that experience shows them that it's easy to do one of the problems. We're going to the language of the consumer Simas. I went to a God sent off to note sent to see what's that? It was a growing me an I'm big printed signified now. I've no idea what that means. I'm holding contrast, quite what does my thirty five year old consumer think that he's so education is about solutions ideas and inspection lock technical language. Absolutely. Yeah. People have a natural curiosity. We all do. And they have a natural curiosity about class. Just the same as they do about technology easy. It is for kid to get turned on by a computer or video game. Well, then turn on about plants outdoor experiences. Just as easily if we don't make seem so difficult when we produce complicated words and processes make him tried figure. What a certified news the rump. Peggy and. Oh, yeah. That's exactly a macoutes. Just went walled over the radishes. It was. But the problem the they will have in was that the growing season for them was in. They were in Tennessee was from January to may. And then the schools broke up. So those shoes void of stuff that they're gonna forget what we have to try and do then it's fine to why of continuing that all year round.
