Keep up on your gardening to-do list - Covington-Maple Valley Reporter
Rosa Rugosa” varieties. I grow a number of Rugosa roses in my front yard and the deer leave them alone.
A. Thanks for the tip. The Rugosa roses are also tolerant of salt spray, severe wind, dry soil and resistant to insects and disease. In the fall they produce bright red rose hips for winter color. Some have long bloom times but most flower just once in early summer. They are very thorny and very large plants however. Rugosa roses are suitable for a hedge in a large garden, but they can be difficult to prune or keep under control. I am so glad the deer ignore your Rugosa roses – deer eat different plants depending on where they live and some gardeners report deer nibbling on their Rugosa roses but still leaving enough of this vigorous plant for the gardener to enjoy.
Q. My hanging petunia basket only has blooms on the tips. We may have allowed it to dry out while on vacation. Anything we can do to make it look nice again?
A. Time to get snippy with your petulant petunia and prune back the long branches by one-half to one-third its length. Then fertilize it with a liquid plant food such as Miracle Grow or Peter’s Professional plant food and keep the soil moist. Try not to use cold water on your petunia baskets. One way to do this is to fill a watering can or plastic gallon jug of water and a pinch of fertilizer every time you water. Then the waiting water in the jug will warm up to a tepid temperature overnight and not shock your heat loving petunias. Just like us humans, many plants do not enjoy the shock of very cold water on a hot day. Keep the foliage of your petunias dry when you water as well. In a few weeks the new growth will cover all your pruning scars and you’ll get a second chance to keep your petunia basket in bloom until frost.

Don't limit your choices when planting spring-blooming bulbs
Can you tell me the name of the spring-flowering native bulb with tall stems and blue flowers? W., Tacoma
A. You must mean the native Camassia or quamash, a 2-foot-tall spring bloomer native to the mountain meadows of the Cascade Mountains.
This deer-and-rodent-resistant bulb was an important food source for Native Americans and the early pioneers. Now you can order the bulbs from commercial growers in the Netherlands so native meadows will not be damaged by plant poachers.
The camassia is blue in the wild but the starry flowers now also come in pink, white and a shorter variety with variegated foliage called Camassia Blue Melody.
Unlike most spring-flowering bulbs the Camassia likes a bit of moisture in the soil, even during the summer months. Casmassia bulbs can be found for sale at local garden centers now or you can order the different varieties from a bulb grower online.
Time to spread the garden gossip on this native plant. Camassia blooms, although tall, colorful and impressive don't last very long. Mine were in flower for less than a week last spring but the yellowing foliage persisted for months.

Tre Flowers impresses in debut, could be second Seahawks rookie in 2 years to win starting job at corner
Related stories from Tacoma News Tribune
Flowers has the potential to be the second Seahawks rookie in two years to earn a starting role at cornerback. Shaquill Griffin, who shifted to left cornerback this season after Richard Sherman's departure, did the same last year.
But winning a starting job isn't Flowers' immediate priority - he just wants to play again next week, and in the weeks after.

The power of flowers: Donna Clark brightens residents' days with beautiful blooms
Market near Pike Place Market in Seattle, which was the first assisted living facility in the state.
When Clark and her husband moved to Northeast Tacoma from the Seatac area, she started visiting residents at Avalon, 135 S. 336th St.
One of the residents she visited often talked about how much she loved flowers, so Clark started bringing some from her own garden to the woman.
Soon her flower deliveries grew – just like her garden, which is comprised primarily of dahlias.
"It is just my passion," Clark said of visiting the residents and delivering flowers. "It is something that makes me think of the little things. Sometimes when you have given up a lot of other things like your home and you don't really have a lot of say of what goes on in your life, it just comforts the person that receives the flowers."
Delivering the flowers gives Clark a chance to visit with the residents.
"Most of the people I have been giving flowers to have vases," she said. "I don't do the arrangements here at my house. I take the flowers there in buckets. If the people are able to, I let them choose (the flowers). … They will often talk about what kind flowers they grew and which kind they like the best. Or they tell you stories about what their husband did to their flowers, if they ran over them or something."
Although she primarily delivers flowers to women, there are a few men who receive the blooms.
"Sometimes the men want them to give to staff," she said.
Clark said it is rewarding to give back to the community and encourages others to do the same.
"Just the joy of seeing people when you walk in the door," she said. "(They say) ‘Oh, I am so glad to see you, so glad you came."
The staff at the care center also enjoys Clark's deliveries.
"They love that," she said. "They love the flowers. Often they will ask what are the flowers, because they don't know or they will ask where I got them."
Clark said she plans to continue delivering flowers as long as she is able.
