THE GARDEN SPOT: Ending the violence against crape myrtles

West Coast. They are found as far north as Baltimore, but they are better suited for warmer regions of the country.The crape myrtle is an adaptable plant. It grows best in moist, well-drained soils, prefers full sun and is drought-resistant. Flowers develop on the current season’s growth.Bloom time varies with the crape myrtle selection. Crape myrtles are valuable landscape plants that can be used as shrubs or small trees ranging in size from 18 inches to over 25 feet. They can be a very beautiful shrub or tree, often used in groups.Crape myrtles are a valuable addition to any landscape provided that the right cultivar is selected and the plants are maintained properly. If you have to prune heavily to maintain the plant size you desire for a given space, it is not the plant's fault. You selected the wrong crape myrtle.Using a chainsaw to prune crape myrtles isn’t pruning at all. That is crape murder, and it has to be stopped.Pruning is necessary for many plants. Pruning helps control insect/disease issues, helps to stimulate new growth — thus stimulating blooms — helps to maintain form and helps to manage the overall health of a plant. However, crape murder is a far cry from pruning, much like topping trees.Heading back crape myrtles in late winter promotes lush new growth in the spring. Flowers are produced on the current season’s growth,... (News Courier)

A florist's advice for saving money on flowers

By dealing with just one vendor, it is one less headache," he said.Location matters - a lot.Flowers can be shipped from all over the world, depending on when and where it's needed. Florists often purchase flowers from from wholesalers or directly from farms, which Burns says cuts out the middleman.Exotic flowers, however, such as birds of paradise, are becoming more common due to certain farms growing them, Drummond says. Greater availability means customers are less likely to experience an upcharge for those flowers, especially around the holidays.Where you purchase flowers can also impact price. For example, Burns says, being in a resort area makes the flowers more expensive than a florist in a larger city, such as Denver. Her shop receives flowers three times a week during her peak wedding season (end of May through October), but only once a week during the rest of the year.Think before you subscribe.Subscription services allow people to sign up for a certain number of deliveries throughout the year. For some people, it may be worthwhile to invest in a subscription instead of scrambling to order bouquets close to the holidays. Cole offers a $220 subscription service that delivers flowers for Mother's Day, Easter and Christmas, plus a wild card (day of your choosing). Local delivery is free."That one can be whatever they want, so if they're like, 'It's for my mom's birthday, and her favorite color is yellow, could you pair it around that?' Well, of course," Cole said. "But they really come from my style, and what I can do that will allow my creative freedom."Other subscription options include BloomsyBox.com, which ranges from $39.99-$48.99 per month, or between $408.09-$529 for a 12-month plan with a new bouquet each month.MagnifyMoney is a price comparison and financial education website, founded by former bankers who use their knowledge of how the system works to help you save money...

Flowers ready to bloom at Oxford

Spanish immersion program, first at International School, then Ainsworth Elementary, West Sylvan Middle School and, finally, Lincoln. "My mom was adamant in funneling me to a more high-functioning public education," Flowers says. "She bent over backward to make sure I had that opportunity." Basketball was Flowers' passion through childhood. "One of the first Christmases I can remember I got a Little Tyke hoop," he says. "My favorite movie growing up was 'Space Jam.' Pretty much everywhere I went, basketball was a fixture of life for me. "All the kids I looked up to, and all the figures I looked up to, were basketball players. I had posters all over my walls — Michael Jordan, LeBron James, Kobe Bryant, Dirk Nowitzki ... I loved Allen Iverson." … Flowers was an immediate hit on the hardcourts, becoming a starter early in his freshman season and helping Lincoln to the state championship game. He played his first three seasons for David Adelman and his senior season for Sean Christensen, earning first-team all-state honors during his final campaign in 2011-12. Flowers also was a two-time second-team all-state tournament selection. That freshman success, though, didn't come without some self doubts. Soon after he became a starter, Flowers stewed over a poor performance. "I felt like there was a tremendous amount of pressure on me to be something I didn't quite know if I could be," he says. "I texted Coach Adelman, 'You gotta take me out of the starting lineup. I don't deserve a spot. I'm more than happy to come off the bench.' He texted me back: 'Not only are you a varsity basketball player, you are a starter for this team. Go out there and play your game, and you'll be fine.' "That was a shot of confidence that radically transformed not only the way I fit into that team, but the way I looked at basketball in general. It made Lincoln feel more like a home. I felt like I had somebody in my corner." Says Adelman: "JT was ready to play from the beginning." Adelman says his work ethic helped get Flowers to the top. "I gave him a key to the gym," says Adelman, now an assistant coach for the Denver Nuggets. "He'd get there early and shoot by himself. He'd practice with the freshman team in the morning. He had such a desire to get better." A D V E R T I S I N G Continue reading belowBy the time Flowers was a senior, "he was our most valuable player," says Christensen, now head coach at La Salle Prep. "He was a wing with guard skills. He could do everything — shoot, defend, rebound. He carried our team." Flowers' coaches appreciated him as a person, too. "Very likable," Christensen says. "Has a great smile. Charismatic. Well-liked by everybody. The kids liked him, teachers liked him, administrators liked him." "He's an eclectic kid, unique, involved in a lot of different parts of life," says Adelman, now an assistant coach with the Denver Nuggets. "One of the best kids I ever coached. Really motivated, an inspirational guy to coach. He was very smart. When he struggled with classes, it was because he was bored by them. The stuff that interested him, he'd knock out of the park. It's cool years later to see what he's turned into. Just a complete person." Flowers says he feels fortunate to have played for Adelman and Christensen. "It was an absolute joy to learn from Coach Adelman," he says. "He...

Between the Rows: Emily Dickinson's inspired world of poetry and flowers

Emily Dickinson and her poetry, such exhibits and books supply a different kind of inspiration to us individually — plans for our own gardens. Nowadays, we can visit the Emily Dickinson Museum in Amherst and stroll through the gardens that have been designed and planted using knowledge of the plants that were originally in the garden, or likely to have been in the garden. In this hi-tech world, visitors can bring their smart phone to the garden and connect to an audio tour as they follow the paths. Dickinson’s garden was not an exotic garden, and most of us will likely have at least a few of her flowers in our own gardens: violets, daisies, peonies, morning glories, marigolds, zinnias, asters, taking us from spring to fall. At the museum we can even buy packets of seed collected from the gardens in the fall. When I look at my own roses, morning glories and autumnal chrysanthemums, I can imagine Emily and the generations of other women that have come before me, wandering their garden paths, sometimes with poetry on their minds, sometimes simple appreciation of the loveliness of the flowers, and sometimes just checking off items on their to-do lists.Pat Leuchtman has written and gardened since 1980. She lives in Greenfield. Readers can leave comments at her website: www.commonweeder.com. (The Recorder)
