Master Gardener: Autumn crocuses thrive in cold climate gardens
October, but these bulbs will enhance this relished bloom time. I was inspired to plant these bulb-like corms by Kathy Purdy, author of the blog Cold Climate Gardening. She is very enthusiastic about this plant, definitely a favorite of hers. She mentioned an online half-price sale at Brent and Becky’s bulbs, so off I went. I purchased three of her favorite varieties, which will provide an extended bloom time in my yard. My Byzantium and Dick Trotter varieties were already in bloom, with the flower stems curved around the bulb in its package. My instructions were to put them entirely in the ground, then enjoy the blooms next year. The Giant variety had no flowers, and probably won’t bloom this year at all. These autumn crocus are large, tough plants, that will likely persist for many years. They are not related to the single-flowered spring crocus. The autumn crocuses are large bulbs, each producing as many as 20 flowers. In good soil they may need dividing every three to five years.Autumn crocuses also are not the same plants that produce the spice saffron, Crocus sativus. Additional recent digging this fall has included transplanting an ETOH intersectional peony to a sunnier spot. Potted peonies can be planted in spring, but transplanting of peony plants from one place to another will be much more successful in fall. I will soon be cutting off my other peony plants, one of the few plants that requires this task in fall to prevent disease. Most of my other perennials I will leave standing, especially if they offer seeds to the birds. If it flops, I cut it off for compost. Any foliage that turns dark after frost can stay in the garden, unless you have been fighting a disease. Hosta leaves may tend to turn grey, so I prefer to remove them after frost for esthetic reasons.Soon I will begin my autumn task of leaf mowing, a much easier task than raking. I use an electric mower to bag the mulched leaves of our two largest trees, then spread them on my perennial beds. The remaining leaves are mowed directly into our lawn, where they fe... Aug 17, 2018
Pottstown, Boyertown residents win big at home garden contest
Kraybill said the contest is meant to “encourage and support gardening, both beginners and experienced gardeners.”
Tracy Purdy, Mosaic Community Land Trust board president, was one of the judges for the contest and said she loves seeing what everyone has planted at their homes.
“It is by far the best thing I do all year,” she said. There were a few first-time contest entries that ended up winning a prize. This was the case for 7-year-old Lexi Oswald.
Oswald came in first-place for the young garden category in Pottstown. She’s been gardening for about two years. Oswald fills her garden with flowers, elves, and of course tiny home structures to attract the fairies.
When asked what she likes best about going in her garden she responded with “I like to get in the dirt.”
Oswald wasn’t the only first-place winner in her home. Her mom, Nichole Leone, won first-place in the flower garden category for Pottstown. Leone said her garden is full of variety. Her parents loved to garden so it was a skill that was passed down to her at an early age.
“It’s very hard work but it’s very relaxing as well and it pays off when people walk by your home and you tell you how nice everything looks,” Leone said. Michael Myers, of Boyertown, was another first-time contest entry that took home a first-place prize for the general garden category. Myers has a garden with a little bit of everything including shade plants, sun plants, potted plants, vegetables as well as annual and perineal flowers.
“I was actually born into a landscaping family so horticulture has always been in my family. It’s kind of in my blood,” Myers said. “I think I get a lot of happiness just having someone walk through my garden. Just seeing someone smile when they walk in makes me really happy and makes it all worth it,” he said.
A full list of winners and photos of the home gardens entered in this year’s contest will be available on the website HomeGardenContest.com.
The Home Garden Contest is made possible through a collaboration between Building a Better Boyertown and the Mosaic Community Land Trust as well as the main sponsor, the Pottstown Area Health & Wellness Foundation.
The contest was also possible with the sponsorships of Jermacans Style Inc., Boyertown Holiday Open House Tour, certified financial planner Carl W. Landis, Jack and Linda Lignelli and Barbara T. Winter.

Illustrated talk on Carl Purdy concludes wildflower exhibit at Grace Hudson Museum in Ukiah
The Dean of Wildflowers,” an illustrated talk on the life and career of Ukiah botanist and horticulturalist Carl Purdy (1861-1945). The event is co-sponsored by the Sanhedrin Chapter of the California Native Plant Society, with further support from Exhibit Envoy, and is free with museum admission.“The trip was through lovely country, at its loveliest in May,” Carl Purdy wrote, of his first trip to Ukiah via Petaluma by stage at the age of 9. “Brush fires had kept the hillsides open, cultivation did not cover much of the land and we passed through a long succession of wildflower gardens. There were masses of a single flower covering acres, or even at times, hundreds of acres.”
Those flowers would have included lupines, California poppies, baby blue eyes (Nemophila menziesii) and more—a feast for the eyes and for young Purdy’s soul. The young Michigan transplant was well on his way to achieving his later title of “The Dean of Wildflowers.”Purdy’s interest in all things botanical continued to blossom, as he explored Mendocino County’s magnificent landscape on foot while befriending local settlers, including the y...

Boyertown, Pottstown gardeners take home cash prizes at contest awards ceremony
To me, it’s the mental health. If I’m not out there gardening at least once a week, I feel really frustrated,” she said.
Tracy Purdy, Mosaic board president, ended the ceremony Sunday by thanking everyone who participated. Purdy, who also judged some of the Pottstown gardens, said it was a great experience to see the beautiful plants. She encouraged everyone to invite family and friends to start gardening so they can enter next year’s contest.

NFL mock draft 2016
L.A. Rams (via Tennessee Titans): Carson Wentz, QB, North Dakota State

The Rams took a flamethrower to the top of the draft, trading a bundle of picks in both 2016 and 2017 in a blockbuster deal for the Titans' No. 1 overall selection (in a situation almost completely opposite to 2012, when the Rams received a king's ransom from Washington in exchange for the No. 2 overall pick). At this point, it'd be a shock if the Rams went anywhere except quarterback with their shiny new pick. Despite team brass declaring through the offseason that they view Case Keenum as their starting QB, they still need a more suitable long-term replacement as the team moves from St. Louis to Los Angeles. It'll likely be between Wentz and local boy Jared Goff, but Wentz may be a better fit for what coach Jeff Fisher asks of his offense. At 6-5, the North Dakota State senior has prototypical height, and while he doesn't have a laser arm, he can make whatever throws are asked of him. Wentz played in a more traditional offense with the Bison, which should help him adjust to the NFL a little bit faster than the other top QBs in this draft, though he only started two seasons against FCS competition and still needs refinement. Previous picks: Wentz (5.0, 6.0)
2. Philadelphia Eagles (via Cleveland Browns): Jared Goff, QB, Cal
