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

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.

Cooperative Extension's master gardeners offer expert advice

Potassium strengthens plant roots.He also mentions that for those who enjoy growing roses, a low-cost fertilizer is Epsom salts.“You can buy it relatively cheap,” Galin said. He often jokes with community groups about the benefits of “dumping it in your roses after you’re done soaking your feet in it.”A free community resource with helpful advice related to lawn and plant care, the Master Gardener Help Line is 702-257-5555. In 2016, Southern Nevada master gardeners had a busy year, assisting 31,097 people. In addition, master gardeners volunteered 35,268 hours on community projects.If you are interested in checking out their work and learning more, the Cooperative Extension’s Demonstration Gardens are located at 8050 Paradise Road and are open to the public Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Free guided tours are offered Fridays at 10 a.m.In addition, master gardeners offer free monthly tours during the spring. On April 8, master gardeners will discuss April flowers and, on May 20, it’s “Hot Summer Colors.” Tours start at 10 a.m.In North Las Vegas, the Cooperative Extension’s Research Center and Demonstration Orchard is at 4600 Horse Road and is open to visitors Tuesday, Thursday and Saturdays from 7 a.m. until n...

13 garden hacks from the experts

Slime trails are tell-tale evidence that slugs are present. Tip from Amanda Bennett, manager of Display Gardens, Atlanta Botanical Garden 4. Epsom salt is good for you and your tomatoes.It's no secret that Epsom salt, which gets its name from a bitter saline spring at Epsom in Surrey, England, has health and beauty benefits when added to bath water. A perhaps lesser-known use for the salt, which is not a salt at all but a naturally occurring combination of magnesium and sulfate, is in the garden. Adding Epsom salt in limited quantities to tomatoes helps the fruit develop better because magnesium and sulfate are key ingredients for plant growth. Michael Arnold of Stone Avenue Nursery in Greenville, South Carolina, said he has heard adding Epsom salt around stressed plants will help them recover. Tip from Amanda Bennett, manager of Display Gardens, Atlanta Botanical Garden 5. There's an easy way to foil crawling insectsIf you have a problem with crawling insects in your vegetable garden, wrapping a collar of aluminum foil around tomatoes and squash can help ward off unwanted critters that want to munch on your goodies before you do. As with the egg shell hack above, there's no science involved with this trick; it's just a practical tactic. Many crawling insects do not like to cross metal, and, in this case, foil has the added benefit of being somewhat sharp. It also acts as a physical barrier. For instance, if you put it on squash, the borer can't get to the base of the stem, which is where they would normally burrow in. Tip from Amanda Bennett, manager of Display Gardens, Atlanta Botanical Garden 6. Keep pots moist with wick watering.[embedded content] If you're a plant collector or a small-space gardener who has a lot of pots, especially small pots of ornamental ferns and tropical plants that can die if the soil dries out too quickly, there's a way to keep their roots moist. Wick water them from old plastic food containers with lids or 2-liter plastic soda bottles using acrylic string or cord. This watering method also can be used on larger pots if you're going on vacation for a short period. The idea is that the capillary action created by drawing water from a reservoir into the soil will maintain soil moisture at levels that will keep the plants happy. Here's how it works (the video above is a little different, but the basic principles remain the same): For smaller pots (4 to 6 inches), use about an 8-inch length of acrylic string or yarn pushed up through the drainage hole in the bottom of the pot. At the time of planting, several inches of the string can be wound around the bottom of the pot. If the plant is already potted, the string can be pushed up through the drainage hole several inches with a pencil or crochet hook. The pot can then be placed right on top of the water container, resting on its lid, and the string should dangle through a small hole cut into the lid. Larger pots may need several leng...

All plants need improved soil 'health'

Question: We planted new oleanders a month ago and fertilized them with Epsom salts and gypsum. They have yellow leaves that are dropping already. What can we do to stop the yellowing of the leaves? Answer: Oleander should be one of the easiest plants to grow in this climate and soils. Something is definitely wrong. Gypsum and Epsom salts are not complete fertilizers. They contain a lot of calcium and sulfur as well as some magnesium but nothing to encourage plant growth. Select a fertilizer that contains nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium such as 16–16–16 or some type of fertilizer for trees and shrubs. You didn’t mention mixing compost with the soil when it was planted. I hope the soil was amended with organic matter like compost at the time of planting. This is extremely important for plants growing in our desert soils. Make sure the planting hole is filling with water at planting time. This practice is not as important in soils found in wetter climates but can be an extremely important practice for our soils. Add enough water at each irrigation to thoroughly wet the soil surrounding the plant roots to a depth deeper than the container. Build a donut or moat around the plant that can be filled with water. Irrigate with a hose, filling this moat, the first three weeks after planting. Question: My tomatoes have blossoms all over. When should I cover it with shade cloth? Answer: Tomatoes do fine without shade cloth. Be careful using shade cloth because too much shade stops plants like tomatoes from flowering and producing fruits. Shade cloth is best used for leafy vegetables and herbs. Shade decreases bitterness and improves tenderness of leaves. img itemprop="url" src="http://www.gannett-cdn.com/-mm-/e62082df502e4f90c3534f346d7aaee0fab639dc/c=3-0-2557-1920&r=x408&c=540x405/local/-/media/2016/04/18/StGeorge/StGeorge/635966006797071558-hoophouse-shade-cloth.JPG" alt="hoophouse shade cloth" wid...

The 20 best things of Auckland life

West. Best castle Clifton Castle, 7 Castle Drive, Epsom. You know you want to buy this. It went on the market in April, and is still for sale; it's a bizarre Gothic castle with a 15m tower, was built in the 1860s for business magnate Clifton Firth, and the CV is $5.2 million. Oh and there's a house a few doors down that has a giant clock on an outside wall. Epsom! So weird. Best public library Ranui. Ranui's kind of got it going on. It's semi-rural, very green, very open, and the new $8 million library - it opened in October last year - has given the township a thing of modern wonder and class. I live in Te Atatu; the new library there has given the township a thing. Best shops Browns Bay. You might have to drive another 100km out of Auckland to find a shopping village as friendly and summery and laid-back as Browns Bay on the North Shore. The whole place feels like the sort of seaside town that puts a smile on your dial as soon as you arrive. It's got toy shops, op shops, good icecreams, and Browns Bay Fisheries opposite the police station does the best fish and chips in a 200km radius. Best mall Sylvia Park. For a full run-down of Auckland malls, book your seat now for my special investigation in next week's Weekend Herald. Every mall reviewed! Wow! But I'll surprised if anything tops Sylvia Park. It's just too good. The new North West mall has imitated it to the point of plagiarism - Natalia Kills would tear strips off it - but still comes far short of the original. It's Xmas! See you there, probably. Best work of art St John the Divine, by SJD. Released in March, this album by Sean Donnelly of Konini is a flat-out pop music masterpiece from beginning to end. All the little symphonies, all that Donnelly wall of sound with its nuances, its shades, its nimble touches, hither and yon. In short, he writes awesome songs, catchy and precise, lyrically clever and beautifully arranged, played, and composed. I buy all my CDs from Marbecks in Queen St and this is the best of the lot by far in 2015. Best second-hand bookstore The Green Dolphin, St Kevin's Arcade, Karangahape Rd. The Green Dolphin! I once wrote a column about "quite possibly the strangest New Zealand film of all time", Green Dolphin St, which inspired the name of this excellent, intelligently curated second-hand bookstore. The film was made in Hollywood in 1947, starring Lana Turner, set in 1840s New Zealand - it has a stunning haka, and the action moves from the kauri forests of Northland to the sheep stations of Otago. It ought to be a cult classic. Happily, at least, it lives on in this brilliant bookstore, where I've recently bought a 1968 copy of The Wahine Disaster, co-authored by Max Lambert and my former journalism tutor, Jim Hartley, and Truman Capote's In Cold Blood with an added feature - a DVD of the 1967 film version. Best bird Spur-winged plover. Bores and even many birders loathe this screeching, graceless ninny, but it's almost certainly the bird seen by more Aucklanders than an... (New Zealand Herald)

Help gifted Emily to fund dance school

Now Emily is asking the public to help her fulfil her dream of attending Laine Performing Arts School, in Epsom, Surrey. She also plans to hold fundraising events such as a car boot sale to raise the money she needs to make it to performing arts school. “This is all I’ve ever wanted to do. It means so much to me,” she added. “If I got the funds to be able to do this I would be the most dedicated student. I would go to every class, I would give it my all, all day every day. I would never stop trying to be better. “I would never take anything for granted. “All I’m asking for is a chance. “It would mean everything to me, this is the only thing I know how to do and dancing enables me to travel somewhere else, become someone else.” If you want to support Emily, email her at emilygara@icloud.com.
