Bulbs 101 Although I have very little problem with "plants" garden or house....bulbs seem to give me a hard time. Maybe ya think because I dont know what I'm really doing? ! Soooooo,Im taking a class this Tuesday!! I am so excited...to learn the in's & outs,and to finally learn when to dig and when not too...Ill share after the class.Im sure I am not the only bulb dummy!!! Have a great crisp week!!!!
This week end was our annual fair...I only entered 1 house plat this year...( I knew this one was amazeing) as my ornamental pepper plant had grown to a small bush,with color ranges from yellow to deep purple on the peppers...it has never produced different colors of fruit before....I just knew this one was a winner.....She really had grown up from a seed,from a plant that my son had bought me about 15 years before...(I save the seeds each year incase) heheheh
Can anyone tell me the care and upkeep of Chinese lanterns,I cant seem to find anyone who knows about this plant. I have tried for years to grow it from seed....One night this summer,while walking past my garden,I saw a flick of red,to my surprise,I had a whole bunch of lanterns growing & blooming! I think just maybe in past years I have weeded these plants out,not knowing what they were? How do I care for them with a Coinnecticut winter fast approaching? Do I need to cut them back..?? Please any help will be appricated!
