Will there be a dazzling 'super bloom' of flowers in California this year? - USA TODAY

USA TODAY Network.“Unless we get some good mid- to late-February or March rains, this isn’t going to be a spectacular year at all,” said Cameron Barrows, who specializes in desert ecology at the University of California, Riverside’s Center for Conservation Biology. Prevalence of wildflowers is also influenced by other factors including rainfall patterns and temperatures, he said.But ecological consultant James Cornett is more optimistic.“All in all, it will be a good year in most places,” he said. Noting that rain storms could still hit the desert in the next two months, he added: “We’re waiting to see if it becomes a great year.”Wildflowers typically emerge in the California desert in late January, so here are the first places in the California desert to look for big blooms. And a reminder: Respect the flowers. When you tromp through a field of flowers to take a photo, you crush that entire patch of blooms.The earliest bloomsAcross the California desert, the first place that blooms big is the south-facing Edom Hill, near the intersection of Date Palm Drive and Varner Road in Cathedral City, Cornett says. There, he says, floral fans will find desert sunflowers, sand verbena and Arizona lupine.Another place to spot early blooms is along Interstate 10 throughout the Coachella Valley, he says.

Quantum Hydroponics Services presented by Quantum Flowers LTD - Health Europa

Quantum is ready for replanting. Plants live and grow in 50mm net pots and although this may sound small, a 6-foot finished plant can live comfortably in them. By using nutrient dosing equipment plus electrical conductivity (EC) and pH monitoring equipment, Quantum becomes simple growing by numbers; the need for a grow master is gone and your budtenders become your eyes on the plants. With your budtenders watching over the plants, its leaves provide a first line of defence. If they are alert and searching for light, then all is well; however, if they are bowed and sagging then there is a problem and the remedy is to change the nutrient. Even if your meters are telling you there is no problem, change the nutrient and get the meters checked – your plants do not lie. Today’s technology can be linked to a mobile phone with an immediate alarm is raised once the set parameters have been exceeded as a reliable second line of defence. Water pumps are very reliable and again, today’s technology allows flow meters to keep checking that your pumps are working. Creating Quantum In the process of creating Quantum I did at one point consider Deep Water Culture (DWC), but I later decided against the idea due to the amount of nutrients involved and the difficulty in linking the systems. Still requiring a fuss free commercial system, the experimentation went on using an array of different troughs and buckets, but success was still elusive. Eventually one day while talking with friends, the hanging gardens of Babylon came up in conversation and my thoughts drifted back to studying history at school and pictures of terraced gardens along the Nile. The penny dropped with Nutrient Trickling Technique (NTT). The architect probably never thought of it that way – he was just building an impressive display. The hanging gardens of Babylon were built with clay blocks and bricks, with water pumped up and running over the staircase of clay, trickling over and around the roots. No soil was involved and over time there may have been a layer of leaf mulch, effectively shading the root structures. Clay being virgin soil is full of micronutrients and the water eroded the clay whist at the same time feeding the plants. The hanging gardens of Babylon was fabled to grow large plants and the fact is it did, probably huge ones. Nutrient trickling technique creates static electricity which in turn creates a turbo effect on the plant, allowing the uptake of nutrients and ...

Master Gardener: Flowers may star in garden, but remember supporting cast - The Livingston County News

It’s tail serves as a wind-vane, keeping the plane headed into the breeze. I also have an old hand-built wheelbarrow I got from a neighbor. I have used it for quite a few seasons to hold pots, or a succulent garden. I got tired of moving it for mowing, so now it rests in a bed of pale pink “Bigfoot” cranesbill.Julie Brocklehurst-Woods has been a Master Gardener Volunteer with Cornell Cooperative Extension of Livingston County since 2002. She enjoys helping all gardeners become successful gardeners, especially helping people identify tools and strategies to prioritize and simplify their gardening tasks.

Gardening: Time's right to plant bulbs for spring flowers

For daffodils or tulips, dig a hole six to eight inches deep, 24 inches wide to 36 inches long. Have a wheelbarrow or tarp to place the soil on, so you don’t have a mess on the lawn to clean up.Add an inch or more of compost, and then sprinkle some bulb booster or organic fertilizer in the bottom of the hole. Loosen the soil in the bottom of the hole with a hand tool, mixing the fertilizer and compost with the soil. Next, arrange the bulbs in the hole. Plant them pointy end up.I like a mass of blossoms, so I plant bulbs close together. I read the directions for the bulb variety I am planting, and then plant them a little closer together. Pay attention to planting depth, too. Smaller bulbs like crocus need much less depth than big fat daffodils.Most bulb plants reproduce by growing offsets, or little bulbs that develop alongside the mother bulb. After a year or two, the offsets will bloom, too, and you can dig up the bulbs and divide them after blooming if you want. I never have done that, but I remember my parents did when I was a boy.What else should you try planting? Snowdrops bloom in early March for me, and are a must. Start with 50 bulbs — they are not very dramatic in a small clump. They do drop seeds and — in a few years — will show up downhill from where you plant them.Glory-of-the-snow is nearly as early as snowdrops, but instead of white, these are purple or blue or even pink. And they look up, not down like snowdrops, so you can see their petals and interior better. Scilla, another favorite of mine, are a deep purple, and look down. Small, but intense.Last year I planted several Camassia, a late-spring or early summer blooming bulb plant. They were wonderful! Each plant produces a few flower spikes that are two or three feet tall and are covered with blue or purple florets. Very dramatic. They are hardy to Zone 4. Unlike most bulb plants, they do well in wet or moist soils in winter.Alliums are in the onion family, are wonderful, and are not bothered by rodents. Some are huge, with balls nearly a foot wide that are airy and open, filled with little florets. The big ones can be expensive ($4 a bulb or more) but last a long time and are very dramatic. Even a half a dozen big ones will make a statement.So get off the couch, get outside and plant some bulbs.

Gorgeous gardens open for tour

Ace Hardware; gift cards from Green Acres; outdoor wall décor and planter; San Francisco Giants tickets (includes tailgate picnic and wine); rustic reversible quilt and bedroom décor; wooden flower box with gardening supplies and more. The Klein Garden in El Dorado Hills, owned by Linda and Dave Klein, is nicknamed "The Heart House." At the front of the house on the fireplace wall you can see a heart-shaped flagstone. "I brought about 15 of them with me when we moved here from Fremont 18 years ago," Linda Klein said. "The stone mason was waiting on the front porch and asked if we noticed what he put on the fireplace - one of the stones was a heart shape." Tour visitors can look for the rest of the slate hearts throughout the property’s walkways. The Kleins have been creating and enjoying their beautiful backyard oasis for the past 12 years. Their retreat includes a greenhouse built by Dave, who is also a jazz musician. Currently growing the greenhouse are tomatoes and a variety of flowers. Linda, a professed lover of both dirt and rocks, said, "I brought 15 of my favorite rocks from our home in Fremont. Using these and all of the rocks we uncovered in our yard, we built every rock wall you see by hand, moving rock by rock until they became walls." As visitors wander the pathway, they will notice many varieties of succulents, beautiful giant oak trees and Japanese maples. The property also features a casita with a bath and kitchen plus an upper patio/fire pit area with flagstone and granite flooring ...
