Make plans now to garden with habitat in mind - Englewood Herald
Resources for information are plentiful: public gardens (Hudson Gardens, Chatfield Farms, Denver Botanic Gardens) … public parks, nurseries, county extension services, garden clubs and more, depending on how one wishes to access information.
Of course, NO pesticide is a cardinal rule here, which may result in some chewed-on leaves and blossoms, but hungry birds will consume those insects if a garden invites them to hang around.
An added attraction is the host of migrating birds that pass by in summer and fall. I really believe they remember a spot that was welcoming. Keep binoculars and bird book handy near a window and teach kids to enjoy "let's look it up."
Start with a bit of research and perhaps a particular corner of your yard. How much sun is there? Is the soil reasonably workable? Perhaps soil should be tested if the property is new to you.
Check a local nursery, where employees know what is what - and where a proposed purchase will grow happily - and choose a few shrubs that will provide berries (Western sandcherry, elderberry, one of several currants, wild rose) - see lists on the CSU Extension site and that of the Native Plant Society.
If the property is new, a careful consideration of trees is in order and soil amendment will no doubt be necessary. If there are none, start one or two trees if possible-they are slow to mature.
The City of Littleton holds an annual sale. See website to order.) Of course, if there are already a bunch of trees, get acquainted with them and any particular needs they might have.
A selection of native perennials will mix well with some colorful annuals to attract pollinators and brighten a gardener's flower bed - or pots. Garden club members and other neighbors usually are happy to share plants once established and may want to suggest favorites that do well in your immediate vicinity.
Beware of what are considered "aggressive" plants - those that want to take over a garden (think mint - put a barrier around it!)
Learn when a particular variety blooms, color and size and plan placement. There's lots of help out there online and in print, as well as at your local nursery.
Pay particular attention to predicted future size and shape of trees and shrubs. We've all seen huge evergreens smashed up against a house! A native shrub that provides handsome leaves, nice flowers and, later, berries will be a good investment as you water, fertilize and talk to it.
Consider the native Oregon grape/holly with its evergreen leaves, yellow blooms and berries, for example, or chokecherry and know that birds will plant more of them where they wish, once the food source is established. (You may disagree on avian placement.)
If establishment of a Certified Wildlife Habitat appeals, see information on the NWF website. Application forms are available and there is a $20 registration fee. Which also provides a subscription to the nice NWF magazine.
For an additional $30, one can obtain an aluminum sign for your yard (or there's a pricier wall plaque - but I'd prefer to invest in plants.)
Low-water plants are the way to go, versus those that require daily watering.
Some communities regulate landscape appearance, so be familiar with rules in your neighborhood, if any.

Tips for Growing Dahlia Flowers
Can you walk us through the seasonal calendar for growing dahlias?
Here in the Hudson Valley, I plant dahlia tubers around May 1. I plant them 4 inches deep and refrain from watering until I see green shoots emerge above ground, usually by mid-May. (It's very important not to water them at planting, because it could cause the tubers to rot.) Most dahlias like to be staked; I put the stake in at planting time when I can see exactly where the tubers are. To promote maximum dahlia stem sturdiness, especially for the varieties with the larger blooms, my former Locust Grove colleague Susan MacAvery liked to plant the tubers 6 inches deep and then gradually fill the soil in.
The emergence of green growth is also my cue to fertilize; I scratch in a tablespoon of granular fertilizer on the surface around each plant. Generally, dahlias will benefit from 5-10-5 or another fertilizer (organic or synthetic) with a higher middle number, the "P" (potassium), because that macronutrient promotes bloom. If you use a fertilizer with a high first number, the "N" (nitrogen), you promote vegetative growth at the expense of flowers. I don't recommend liquid fertilizers for dahlias, because they push growth too fast and they are almost all too high in nitrogen.
As soon as the stems are about five inches tall, I pinch them above the second whorl of leaves to promote bushier plants with stronger side shoots for cutting. I mulch the plants once they're vigorously growing. You can mulch with newspaper topped with a well-rotted organic material (like leaf mulch), but don't use cardboard, because it can hold too much moisture and rot the tubers. Grooming dahlias weekly is important; remove spent flowers to put energy into new flower buds but also to reduce pathogens.
Dahlias bloom their hearts out from late August all the way through to hard frost. Let the plants freeze, leave them in the ground for 10 days, then dig them up and cut the dead top foliage off. (One year I was out of town at the 10-day mark and didn't get to dig them until two weeks after that; they were fine.) Interestingly, the size of the tubers doesn't necessarily correlate with the size of the plants/flowers. Some large flowers have small tubers and vice versa.
I urge folks: label your tubers as you dig them up, even if you think you will remember. One year [Steinhoff chuckles] I thought I had saved 15 different kinds of dahlias, but it turned out I had only two! I recommend putting a nametag on a string around each tuber and then putting them in bags or newspaper. I store mine in my basement, where it's about 60 degrees in the winter-and the tubers do fine. Some people store tubers in peat or vermiculite; I don't, because I want to be able to easily inspect the tubers in the winter. I cull any rotting ones and also see which ones are producing eyes. There will always be some tubers that don't produce viable eyes, and these have to be chucked.
Any other tips or stories?
