Floral and lush, this $12 South African white wine blend blossoms in your glass - The Washington Post

Old World sensibility — the oak is beautifully integrated to give structure and tannin to the wine, the alcohol is in check, and there’s a mineral undertone that suggests a fine bordeaux. Pair this with the next large hunk of beef you grill for a summer party. ABV: 14 percent.Imported by Artisans & Vines. Distributed in the District by Hop & Wine, in Maryland by Artisans & Vines, and in Virginia by Hop & Wine and LK Wine Tours & Sales. Available in the District at MacArthur Beverages, Rodman’s. Available in Maryland at Bethesda Co-Op in Cabin John, Bradley Food & Beverage and Georgetown Square Wine and Beer in Bethesda, Finewine.com and the Wine Harvest in Gaithersburg, Takoma Park-Silver Spring Co-Op in Takoma Park. Available in Virginia at Aldie Peddler in Aldie, Locke Store in Millwood, Murphy Beverage in Winchester, Vienna Vintner in Vienna. Gone Rogue Mish Mash White 2018 Great Southern, Australia, $23 This delicious riot of a wine — designed to appeal to iconoclasts of all ages — is a blend of riesling and pinot grigio, with a dash of viognier tossed in for good measure (and, well, aromas and body). That recipe corresponds to none of the paradigms of the wine world, but it succeeds with a frenzy of flavor, balance and fun. Both the name and label encourage us to “go rogue” and defy limitations.

Master Gardener: How to make cut flowers last

Next, make sure your vase is very clean and filled with warm (not hot) water. If your tap water has a lot of minerals in it, you should use purified water in the vase. Make a final cut of the flower stem under water and immediately transfer it to the vase. If you are cutting poppies or other flowers that leak sap, you will need to seal the stem to prevent them from wilting. Immediately after cutting the flower, sear the cut end of the stem with a flame. I find that an inexpensive barbecue lighter sold in grocery stores works really well and is convenient to use. There is a convenient substitute for commercial flower preservative. A number of years ago, University of California researchers discovered that a solution of one part lemon lime soda (regular, not diet) and two parts water works just as well as the commercial products. The acidity of the soda and the sugar in the solution work together to prolong flower freshness. Following these simple steps should ensure that your flowers will last their longest. Q: The raspberry vines I have produce wonderful berries. Several friends would also like plants of this variety but I don’t know its name. How can I help them? A: Cuttings usually can be rooted successfully as long as they are taken from canes that have not born fruit. For best results, select canes that are at least pencil-thickness. Cut them to six-inch lengths and remove the leaves from the lower half of each cutting. Insert the leafless half in a moist soil; raspberries root easily enough that rooting hormone is rarely necessary. Within four to eight weeks roots should develop. When grown under the same conditions as your plant, these new plants will produce the same fine berries as their parent.

How to fertilize trees, shrubs, flowers and fruits

Inorganic or chemical fertilizers are derived from minerals or manufactured products. They react faster than most organics and are higher in analysis, but dissipate quicker and they generally don't improve soil tilth.• Both organic material and inorganic fertilizer can be combined effectively, if desired.• Apply fertilizer to trees, shrubs, fruits and perennials when spring's flush of rapid growth begins, and then monthly through June.• July 4 is the cutoff date for fertilizing trees, shrubs, fruits and perennial flowers. Fertilizing later stimulates growth that might not have sufficient time to toughen or harden off before winter.• Fertilizer is especially effective on younger trees, shrubs, fruits and perennials. Older, large, established plants usually grow fine without fertilizer additions.• Starter fertilizers help vegetable and flower transplants establish quicker.• If in doubt about quantity, always err on the low side, as too much can burn plants. Follow the label.• Granular fertilizer is best cultivated shallowly into the soil surface after application and watered in.• Fertilizer spikes provide nutrition, but materials don't move laterally a great distance, limiting spikes' efficiency.• For vegetable gardens, fertilizer can be broadcast and tilled in before planting, or side-dressed in bands beside rows or in a circle around individuals. Follow label directions, which for 10-10-10 is about 2 cups (1 pound) per 100 square feet or about a half cup per 10 running feet of row.• For trees, apply 1 cup of 10-10-10 for every inch of trunk diameter (measured 4½ feet above ground level) and distribute evenly around the root zone inside and outside of the canopy's dripline, not next to the trunk.• For shrubs, spread 1 cup of 10-10-10 evenly around large, 5- to 6-foot-high established shrubs. Apply a half cup to small and less-established shrubs.• For perennial flowers, rhubarb and asparagus, spread 1 cup of 10-10-10 per 100 square feet of bed, or band each plant with a fourth to a half cup. Cultivate in and water.• For strawberry patches, follow vegetable garden guidelines.

Local shops see boost, smiles during holiday rush

There’s not much Christmas stuff left. I’m now stocking up for the next holiday (Valentine’s Day).” At Back Country rocks and minerals, owner Dave Holtzinger described holiday business as better than last year for the store. “The day Trump signed the tax bill, the next two days had happier (customers) than the day before,” he said. “People were happy and in a better mood. I can’t say it was the same for everyone, but that’s how it appeared to me.” Stocking stuffers were flying off the shelves during December at Totally Cool Gifts in Old Town, store employee Arla Gibson said. “Every day I worked, it was really busy,” she said. “During Country Christmas, it was extremely busy. I would come in after the weekend, and so many things were gone. We sell a little bit of everything because we have a little bit of everything. The old-fashioned candies are really popular, as are our gag gifts and we sold a lot of socks.” ... (Auburn Journal)

Make a drink out of a backyard flower

To serve, add ice and chopped seasonal fruits to a glass. Pour in a little switzel concentrate as you would for cordial. Dilute with soda or mineral water. COOK'S NOTE: Using unpasteurised apple cider vinegar, which has the vinegar mother, encourages the development of beneficial bacteria in a very mild ferment, so it's good for gut health. For an alcoholic switzel, add a little gin to your glass. A Delicious Bunch: Growing and Cooking with Edible Flowers by Linda Brennan, RRP $39.95, is out now through Ecobotanica.

Gardening: Gardenias, while difficult to grow, have a beautiful payoff

When you propagate gardenias from cuttings, the plants that develop will tend to show the classic mineral deficiencies for which gardenias are known, lack of magnesium and lack of iron. With these two mineral deficiencies, you see chlorosis, identified by yellow spaces between green veins.AdvertisementChlorosis comes from the word chlorophyll, the molecule that makes leaves green. At the center of this molecule is an atom of magnesium, surrounded by four atoms of nitrogen. (Incidentally, hemoglobin, the molecule that makes blood red is identical in its fundamental structure to chlorophyll, except that an atom of iron is surrounded by the four nitrogens). Magnesium deficiency is expressed in older leaves at branch bases even while terminal leaves remain green. The reason for this is that magnesium is mobile and will seek out the newest, which is always the most important, growth when its supply is limited. Add magnesium with Epsom salts (2 tablespoons in a gallon of water once a month) and add iron with powdered iron chelate in the spring.Regarding nitrogen deficiency, it is the easiest of all deficiencies to diagnose. Like magnesium, nitrogen is highly mobile and when you see a branch with leaves that are pale green to yellow excepting green terminal leaves, you known there is a nitrogen shortage. Unlike magnesium or iron deficiency, however, the color of the entire leaf is a pale green to yellow color and leaf veins are not greener than the surrounding tissue. Meanwhile, since iron does not move well in the plant, it’s deficiency is first noticed on new growth.Getting back to genetics, keep in mind that popular gardenia varieties have been selected for flower quantity or fragrance or both. However, nursery growers have learned that when these varieties are clonally propagated, the root systems of the new plants struggle to provide robust growth once plants are shifted from nursery containers to harsher garden conditions. The solution to this problem has been provided by grafting onto a rootstock species that keeps foliage green despite difficult soil conditions and that is highly efficient at extracting magnesium and iron from the soil.With plants in general, pale green to yellow foliage may not indicate nitrogen deficiency but rather nitrogen imbalance that may be seasonal and self correcting. Two plants — common hibiscus (Hibiscus rosa-sinensis) and blue potato bush (Lycianthes rantoneii) — are famous for displaying sickly foliage in late winter only to have it change to a lush green, sans fertilizer, as weather warms.For more information about area plants and gardens, go to Joshua Siskin’s website at www.thesmartergardener.com. Send questions and photos to Joshua@perfectplants.com.Tip of the weekYou can special order grafted gardenias through Monrovia Nursery, the mega plant grower. Check to see which retail nurseries in your area buy from them at Monrovia.com. The rootstock species that is grafted upon is starry gardenia (Gardenia thunbergia).Around 20 years ago, before the Sherman Oaks Library was demolished and rebuilt, there was a stunning hedge, around 8 feet tall, of this species. Flowers are highly fragrant trumpets that end in swirling stars. In its native habitat of South Africa, starry gardenia, due to its prickliness, is used as a living security fence. Leaves of starry magnolia are always deep green and fertilization is not needed.No wonder this dry climate gardenia succeeds as a rootstock for the moisture craving garden varieties that are grafted upon it.
