Ask the Gardener: Does it really matter if you deadhead flowers?
There are also many kinds of so-called "beardless'' iris that lack the fuzzy flower strips. These include moisture-loving Louisiana and Japanese iris and the easier and more popular Siberian iris. These seldom need division to keep blooming, but if you want to propagate them, just use a sharp spade to slice off and dig up a piece of root without lifting the entire plant.

Master Gardeners share their knowledge on 'Edible Flowers'
Just for flavor. To make it more exciting and to appreciate the gifts Mother Nature has given us," Morgan said.
The Louisiana Master Gardener program is a volunteer organization offered by the LSU AgCenter. Individuals undergo an eight to nine week horticultural training program to become certified Louisiana Master Gardeners. The training covers all aspects of horticulture including lawns, fruits, vegetables, flowers and nuts.
Once certified, Master Gardeners share their knowledge and skills with the community through proven, research-based educational programs for Louisiana residents.
"Our entire program is geared around educating the public," LSU AgCenter assistant horticulture agent and Master Gardener coordinator Anna Timmerman said.
There are about 150 Master Gardeners in Orleans, Jefferson, Plaquemine and St. Bernard parishes. These volunteers are required to perform 40 hours of volunteer service the first year of certification and 20 hours a year thereafter.
To aid in their education mission, Master Gardeners sponsor 40 public teaching gardens in the area. Some of the gardens are located in LaSalle Park in Metairie, Rivertown in Kenner and Dutch Alley, Federal City, Botanical Gardens and Audubon Zoo in New Orleans.
"We really try to be diverse with our projects," Timmerman said.
Abbott enjoys her role as a Master Gardener. She has accumulated knowledge, recipes, tips and more about the plants she grows which she wants to impart to others.
"Why keep it to yourself," Abbott said. "It is so much more fun to share it."

Down To Earth: Spectacular Colors And Winter Flowers Make Witch Hazel A Garden Delight
Hamamelis vernalis is a native species that is quite hardy (zone 4) and can be found along streams from Missouri to Louisiana. Finally, the species Hamamelis virginiana, another native, can grow quite large—to 18 to 20 feet. It’s also found throughout much of the eastern US.Most of these plants grow to 5 to 6 feet in the average landscape, although they have the potential to get larger, depending on the cultivar chosen. Their broadly upright habit makes them ideal for use in most gardens and they work well even in a small space. They respond well to pruning and can be kept to 4 to 5 feet easily. They also add spectacular fall color, as do many plants in their family (Hamamelidaceae). Leaf colors in the fall can range from yellow to orange, gold and bright red. Fall color alone makes these plants worthy of use. They have spectacular foliage during the summer months as well, with rounded, slightly wavy leaf margins and a nice, clear green color.If you’re looking for a good resource for this genus, try Michael Dirr’s “Manual of Woody Landscape Plants.” He has a great chart listing all the relevant cultivars of each species. Arnold Arboretum in Boston has a wonderful collection and they should be in flower now, if you can make the trip.There are 33 cultivars listed in Michael Dirr’s manual. In searching through nursery catalogues, typically you’ll be hard-pressed to find more than two to three listed. However, during a quick online search of Broken Arrow Nursery in Hamden, Connecticut, I found they list 38 cultivars and many are quite spectacular. I may have to make a trip this spring!...Apr 6, 2018
Out of flowers? Flour? Businesses contend with supply crises
We are constantly having to network to find new suppliers that may have quality wood," says Woods, whose company is located in Tickfaw, Louisiana. His suppliers are demolition companies, and most sites with the wood he needs are in industrial revolution-era towns in New England and along the Mississippi River. "We go wherever we have to," Woods says.At Widespread Electrical Sales, owner Scott Vaughn also travels the country in search of equipment that may be decades old."We rely on big industrial plants that are closing, buy the right to their power distribution systems, and rip them down," says Vaughn, whose company is based in Wheat Ridge, Colorado. He also gets obsolete equipment from decommissioned call centers and data centers.Widespread Electric sells about half a million breakers a year, with some costing as much as $25,000. The cost is worth it for a business that otherwise would have to retrofit its power systems.Supply shortages are an inherent part of the electrical business, Vaughn says."It's directed by the manufacturers themselves," he says. "They put out a product line and sell it with a planned obsolescence program behind it."_____Follow Joyce Rosenberg at www.twitter.com/JoyceMRosenberg .
