Growing Superb Gardens and Plants

 

      Welcome to Garden Hobbies, a great place for you and your plants........

Gardening News:


Plant Problems.... For most  of us, our gardens are growing strong with a profusion of flowers, vegetables and fruits. However, when a problem occurs, panic understandably sets in. There's a frantic search for the cause and a quick fix. About Plant Problems and Diseases



Made in the Shade.... A shady yard doesn't mean a yard devoid of flowers and plants It means selecting and growing the right plants for a shady environment. Many plants thrive in low light conditions. Most popular among these are ferns and hostas. More on Shade Gardens.



Composting starts now.... and continues all season long. Correction: make that "all year" long. The best gardens are grown by gardeners who make their own compost. More on Composting.



Fall Planted Bulbs August brings to mind bulbs for fall planting. They are now arriving in the marketplace. The highest quality bulbs don't have to be the most expensive. Look for the largest bulbs, which produce the biggest spring blooms. Storage is important to bulb health. Avoid the "big box" stores, which don't properly store them, and offer lower, sometimes disappointing quality.



Harvest Time means canning and drying fruits, vegetables, and herbs. You worked hard to grow them. Now, you can prepare and store excess foods for later use.....kewl!
