Garden on small lot blooms with 20 years of work and love - Coastal Observer
That’s not quite the story. Like a dandelion drifting in the wind, the signs were in the air.
First, the house plants; 80 of them in her tiny Clemson University dorm room. “My roommate and I just kept adding to them, and soon they were everywhere,” she said. “We had to put in a wooden plank to hold them all.”
Second, came that blue rug juniper outside the Myrtle Beach apartment where she and her husband, Donald, lived after they married. Smith didn’t like it, so she replaced it with wildflowers.
“The management didn’t say a word,” she said, a twinkle in her blue eyes.
In 1997 came the house and the yard. After their Lowcountry home was built, they asked a local landscape company to draw up a plan for their yard.
“It was very good, but it was pricey, and we just weren’t in a position to do the entire yard at the time,” Smith said. So she opted to put the green in her yard instead of into someone else’s bank account. “We did the bare bones and only put in foundational plants against the house, and I decided I could do the rest of the yard by myself.”

She never dreamed it would take her 20 years, countless pairs of gardening gloves and numerous sun hats. Or that she would learn how to lay pavers and 1,500 pounds of flagstone all by herself.
But Smith is no ordinary gardener. Once she got serious, she pursued it with the tenacity of kudzu.
She took a master ga... Mar 23, 2018
Growing friends, flowers and produce in Sumter's community garden
Trying to [garden] at home is difficult at best, and there's also the social aspect of it," said Bill Strickland, a Master Gardener through Clemson Extension and director of the community garden.Strickland has already seeded and started growing bell peppers and three kinds of tomatoes to soon be transplanted into the Master Gardeners' four plots of the 38 at the garden, which they will eventually harvest and donate to Emmanuel UMC Church on South Main Street.The garden was founded in 2001 when the group got a $50,000 grant to build the garden and Manning Avenue farmers market. By 2002, Master Gardeners had donated 200 pounds of produce to the soup kitchen at the church.When, over time, the garden fell into disrepair, Strickland stepped in two years ago to plant a new foundation.There are compost bins. He and other gardeners re-mulched and planted flower beds. He tried to go through and contact everyone who owned an individual plot to make sure they still wanted to or lived in the area.He cleaned up the marquee at the front of the garden, which holds community news and the map of who owns what plot. He added gutters to the top of the marquee roof, which now allows rainwater to funnel into a barrel to be used for crop watering."We try to stay as green as possible," he said.Marlene Malcolm, who was one of three Master Gardeners who founded the garden, said the community aspect is what makes it so much fun."It's a neat project," she said, pointing out that it can be a big draw to residents of senior living communities who often do not have the space to plant and maintain their own garden.Plus, growing your produce in your plot in the community garden gives you access to advice and help from the Master Gardeners.Ethel Isaac was one of two people taking this year's class to become a Master Gardener. She went through four Master Gardener plots pulling weeds before her classmate raked them away and took them to the compost bins."My kids wanted me to get out of the house," she said.She said she has always loved being outdoors, whether it was fishing or walking or anything else she wanted, but her husband recently died. Getting out of the house by herself got harder.She had been good enough at growing tomatoes and okra in her backyard, in a plot about half the size of one in the community garden, that she was able to freeze some.Now, she has access to learn more and t...

The perfect poinsettia: How to pick and care for the 'Christmas flower' throughout the season
No matter where they are purchased – a local nursery, grocery store or other garden center – there are a few things to look for.Experts at Clemson University and Cold Creek Nurseries in Aiken say when selecting a poinsettia to purchase, buyers should look for a full cluster of cyathia, the true flower; the cyathia can be found in the center of the bracts, which are the leaves of the plant that can be a variety of colors.The flower should be tightly budded when the plant is purchased as opposed to being open, which signals a more mature plant, said Cold Creek greenhouse manager Joy Abbott.Jim Faust, an associate professor of horticulture who has been studying poinsettias since he was in college in the 1980s, shared similar thoughts in a news release issued by Clemson University. "... If the cyathia have fallen out, then the plant has passed its peak performance," he said. "Also, the lower leaves of the plant should look fresh and dark green. Yellow, faded leaves are indicators of plants that are nearing the end of their potential shelf life."Poinsettias are available in several colors. They range from red, white, pink, peach, yellow as well as marbled and speckled bracts, but the most popular are red, Clemson reports. Red poinsettias account for 80 percent of the sales in the United States, according to the university.

Flowers chosen for European event
Izzy Schwam from Jacksonville, Fla., are the only players yet to make their collegiate choices. Coaches for the team are Kamryn Sherman (Clemson ’13) and CJ Sherman (Covenant ’87). “Maryville College coach Kandis Schram actually nominated Emma for it last year and they contacted us about her playing again this year,” related Cleveland head coach Trish Flowers, who is also Emma’s mother.“This is actually the first time since 14-under ball that she’s getting to play with her own age group,” the elder Flowers explained. “She’s always played ‘up,’ against older girls.”“Playing ‘up’ has been bittersweet, but it has helped her in some things she needed to work on.”Despite being a 6-foot-2, power hitter, Flowers has the athleticism to play every position on the court, so at the high school and club level she rarely leaves a match.“There has been a lot of pressure, especially from college coaches, that want her to just concentrate on one position, as well as just play one sport,”?commented the two-sport standout’s coach and mom.Along with being the Co-District 5-AAA?Player of the Year, as well as district and region tournament MVPs,? Flowers is also an all-district performer on the basketball court.“I played multiple sports in high school and I?think it benefits players to do that, so they don’t risk getting burned out,” stated Coach Flowers, who was a?three-sport (track, volleyball, basketball) standout in high school herself in Fairfield, Ohio, before coming to play basketball for Lee College and was a member of the Lady Flames' 1999 NCCAA?National Championship squad.“Playing basketball has been good for her. Coach (Tony)?Williams has pushed her to a higher level and increased her competitive spirit.”On the volleyball court last fall, the Flowers duo led the Lady Raiders to the program’s first TSSAA?State Tournament berth.Cleveland finished 39-15 on the campaign and tied for sixth place at the state event.After bouncing back from an opening round loss to nine-time state champion Siegel, they posted a big victory over three-time state champ Ravenwood.The Lady Raider season ended against Farragut, which was on its way to its second straight state runner-up finish. Emma earned a spot on the Class AAA Tennessee Sports Writers Association's All-State Team after leading the greater Chattanooga area in kills (779) and was second in aces (94).She also finished with a career-best 388 digs, 256 assists and 19 blocks.Flowers also played for the C4 Explosion volleyball team, which had a great club season.“We (C4) qualified for the nationals for the first time, but we weren’t able to go, because some of our best girls had prom that weekend,” Emma related.“We placed very high in tournaments in Nashville, Atlanta, (Louisville) Kentucky and St. Louis,” she added.Nancy Culver coaches the C4 squad that includes several players from Baylor, Signal Mountain and the North Georgia area.While Flowers has several offers from NAIA?and NCAA?D-II schools, she is waiting to make her collegiate decision.“I’m trying to keep my options open,” she explained. “I’m looking for the door God is going to open for me. I don’t want to rush into a decision yet.”Right after she gets back from Europe, Flowers has been invited to attend a camp put on by Ole Miss at Siegel High School in Murfreesboro.After five days at home, she will then head to North Carolina for a camp at Gardner-Webb...
