Moon flowers, a romantic Ocean Beach garden, the Monterey cypress - San Diego Reader
Even a weary purple trumpet vine he’d bought on sale and transplanted to an old clay pot was sending out tendrils and latching onto the fence. It seemed he could grow anything He pointed out all of this to her.

Sin Jen recalls a disaster that struck San Diego before the war: When the water from Hoover Dam was first used in California, it was too salty and killed all the begonias and acid-loving plants.
Get That Gorgeous Girl Out of That Rock
Sin has hundreds of gardens all over the county, many in Point Loma and Rancho Santa Fe.. I have talked with a few of these lucky people. They regard Sin with affectionate wonder and tell stories about his skill and the strength of his vision — tales of plant identification, coaxing branches down to the ground, daredevil pruning. In a garden in Point Loma, he grafted a red leaf plum onto an apricot because he wanted the color.

The Monterey cypress is one of the worst trees for Southern California.
Pull It Up by the Roots Before You Fall in Love With It
About 40 years ago, shortly after Lou and I built our home and every penny counted, I climbed to the top of a large Monterey cypress tree outside our bedroom and cut off its totally dead top section. The dead portion was over ten feet tall. My... Jul 6, 2021
Julia Ann Ellert - Obituary - Mahoning Valley - Mahoning Matters
She worked most recently with her best friends at Salon Extravaganza. On March 17, 2000, she married her loving husband of 21 years, Clayton William Ellert, and together they raised two children in Austintown, Peyton Olivia Ellert, 22, and Diven William Ellert, 19.
She was a loving wife, mother, aunt, sister and friend. Julia leaves behind her husband, Clayton; daughter, Peyton; son, Diven; mother, Mary; sisters, Karen (Joe) Garcia and Connie Bellay; nieces, Megan (Bijan) Garcia Hosseininejad, Keri (Deanna) Williams, Cassie Bellay, Sarah Garcia and Katie Bellay; great-nephews, Aiden Dickey, Jaimee Williams, Gavin Hosseininejad and Jaxon Williams; a great-niece, Jocelyn Mary Bunting as well as the many other wonderful family members and friends she had in her life. She also leaves several furry family members. Her father, Diven Eugene Gency, preceded her in death in May of 2017. Julia was a jack of all trades, she made the most delicious cupcakes and probably built the table that you were eating them at.
She always made sure her yard was full of flowers, especially yellow ones, and loved growing fresh veggies and herbs when the weather was warm. She loved sitting on her porch in the sun when she couldn’t be at the beach and she loved a good book or puzzle. When she was in the kitchen making one of her many famous baked goods, she loved to listen to Elton John. Julia was always an active parent, she never missed a sporting event or concert and always pushed her children to be the best versions of th... Apr 4, 2021
This shrub keeps its leaves during Minnesota winters and blooms in May - Duluth News Tribune
Although P.J.M. is winter-hardy, this 5-foot-high shrub has additional requirements to thrive. Hot sun and hard-baked clay soil will quickly cause decline. For best results, plant in filtered sun, or a morning-sun-only location, and incorporate generous amounts of peat moss into the surrounding soil and mulch with shredded wood products.
RELATED COLUMNS: Q: I have a question about fertilizing hydrangea shrubs. I read somewhere to use 10-10-10 fertilizer in the early spring. Is this good advice? — Laurie S. A: Yes, it’s good advice. 10-10-10 is a well-balanced fertilizer for perennial flowers, vegetables, and shrubs, including hydrangeas. Apply a half cup around the base of each shrub about May 1. If possible, work the granular fertilizer into the top few inches of soil, and water well to activate. Repeat again June 1, and then don't fertilize for the remainder of the season. Fertilizing flowering shrubs early in the season provides strong nutrition for blossom formation on shrub types that flower on new wood, like hydrangeas, and it increases next year’s buds on types that flower on old wood, like lilacs. Discontinuing fertilizer in early July allows shrubs to slow down in late season, hardening growth against winter injury.
RELATED COLUMNS: Q: Last July, landscapers planted a hydrangea tree that was covered in blooms which have dried up over winter. Do I cut off the dried blossoms this spring? I’m not sure what’s best. — Rose G. A: The flower clusters of hydrangeas persist for most of winter, adding interest to the snowy landscape, which is a good reason for not removing the... Apr 4, 2021
Spring Festival of Flowers to include flowers, edible plants, trees and activities - Pensacola News Journal
Currently, the West Florida outpost is researching the potential of a new yield. “When Florida introduces a new crop to our state, we have a responsibility to ensure we protect our natural resources for today and generations down the road,” said Mark Long, the admissions officer for WFREC. “This means we need to ensure the new (emerging) crop doesn’t threaten our waters, soils, wildlife, forests and it doesn’t bring in insects or kill off insects we need. As an example, we are growing carinata (an oilseed crop that can contribute to biofuel) at our research facility and all 10 of them get involved for a variety of reasons.”As the center and the IFAS as a whole is a state and county effort, the Spring Festival of Flowers is a direct result of this cross pollination as it curates its participant...

These plants are dressed in Pantone color choices of the year - yoursun.com
Make sure it has good drainage, sun and fertile soil, and you will find easy success. If you are plagued with tight, compacted clay, then loosen the soil with 3 to 4-inches of organic matter or plant on raised beds.Though drought-tolerant and ruggedly persevering, it is a good idea to apply a layer of mulch to conserve moisture and deter weeds. You’ll find maintenance easy because there is no deadheading required. The spent flowers are quickly covered by new growth and more colorful blossoms.Most would have thought that when Pantone picked gray and yellow it would have been difficult to carry the scheme to the flower border, or mixed containers but the award winning Flambé Yellow strawflower makes it wonderfully easy and beautiful.Norman Winter, horticulturist, garden speaker and author of, “Tough-as-Nails Flowers for the South” and “Captivating Combinations: Color and Style in the Garden.” Follow him on Facebook @NormanWinterTheGardenGuy.
