A ‘cottage garden’ blooms at Harveys Lake - Wilkes Barre Times-Leader
Ned Hosey — and we haven’t even mentioned the birds yet.
Sorber, who is a former president of the Back Mountain Bloomers Garden Club and a retired teacher, works part-time at Wild Birds Unlimited in Dallas.
The ardent bird lover has filled her yard with several feeders — and she is regularly rewarded by visits from cardinals, woodpeckers, catbirds, blue jays and many other feathered friends.
“The catbirds love jelly,” she said with a laugh, explaining how a sweet little spoonful helps attract them. “Grape jelly. It doesn’t have to be Smuckers.”
She’ll often cut an apple or orange in half and set it out for the birds, who also can find nuts and suet in her feeders.
“I call it a cottage garden,” she said of her array, which includes brown-eyed susans, ornamental grass, hibiscus, sunflowers, mums and more.
She’s placed pumpkins on a staircase, hung cobalt blue bottles from a leafy tree and adorned two small fir trees with lights.
Frog statues preside over a tiny pond, an old-fashioned metal minnow bucket lends interest to another corner of the yard, and if you keep your eyes open you’ll spot vintage gardening implements such as a watering can and rake.
It doesn’t take a lot of money to create a fascinating garden, Sorber said, pointing out a colorful collection of zinnias that sprang up after she sprinkled “seeds from a packet that cost $1.”

Flowering native plants add color naturally - Woodstock Independent
It’s bushy structure complements summer bloomers with a background of attractive foliage. It prefers full sun, and once the plant becomes established, it is not difficult to cultivate. As a legume, it has a benefit that its root system binds nitrogen to the soil.
The Common Elderberry
(Sambucus nigra canadensis) is an attractive native shrub that has large clusters of very fragrant, cream-colored blooms in the late spring that provide pollen to insect visitors. In the fall it offers large clusters of dark purple drupes (small fleshy fruit) that are attractive to birds. It is a deciduous shrub that can grow to 12 feet.
(Physocarpus opulifolius) is a shrub with multiple stems that can grow up to 9 feet. It has clusters of pretty white flowers that provide nectar and pollen to many insects. Later in summer, the flowers are replaced by drooping clusters of red fruits that remain on the plant until they shatter in winter. The young stems are shiny and reddish-brown, and the older stems are brown and exfoliate in papery strips.
(Chelone oblique) is a 3-foot-tall native perennial. It is an attractive plant with many blooms that... Jun 19, 2020
30 Garden Tips for the Next 30 Days of Summer Featured font size + - Prescott eNews
Pinch and deadhead - This is a must-do task if flowers are to be kept blooming all season long.
Cut back - Tall perennial bloomers like asters, monarda, Helianthus, and mums should be cut back now so they won’t bloom too early. Pruning guarantees that they will grow fuller and more densely covered with Fall-anticipating buds.
Remove - Pull out cool-season crops like spinach that will bolt into flower because of the heat.
Plant - Fill in empty spaces with succession plantings of summer greens like kale, chard, and lettuce. Also, plant vegetables that like being planted during hot weather: tomatoes, peppers, and eggplants.
Bush beans - After harvesting, plant new succession crops at two-week intervals.
Tomato plants - Stake them as they grow. Pinch out suckers.
Asparagus and Rhubarb - These two plants should not be harvested in summer. Let them build up their reserves for next season.
Corn - To prevent earworms, put a couple of drops of mineral oil on corn silks within a week after they appear.
Berries - Protect fruits with nets, row covers, or scare tape.
Harvest - Vegetables, like squash, beans, and tomatoes, should be checked daily.
Wisteria - Once they finish blooming, prune the vines to keep them a manageable size.
Evergreens - Pine, spruce, and cedar should be pruned back as soon as new growth starts to turn a dark green or blue.
Compost – That simmering pile of future plant nutrients should be turned to take advantage of the summer heat.
June Fruit Drop - This is standard on fruit trees. It thins fruit to manageable crop size. Clean up any fallen fruit.
Insects love summer - Be vigilant! Walk through gardens checking both sides of leaves for eggs and nymphs. Check trees for nests of bagworms.
Spider mites - Look for plants with spider webs with no visible spiders, especially evergreens like spruces and junipers—YouTube on how to Control Spider Mites.
Lawns - Allow lawns to grow taller. Set the mower blade higher, so the grass has a chance to shade the soil, helping it to stay cooler.
Water - Make sure plants stay hydrated. Look for leaves that are wilting, or that show their undersides in the heat of the day. Water by hand, if needed, or bump up your irrigation times to water longer for each cycle. Watters water guide.
Feed - The entire landscape should be fed before summer rain... Jun 19, 2020
The Peonies Are Blooming at Old Mission Flowers - Old Mission Gazette
One: Nope, not out yet, but close. It’s warm and rainy, so maybe tomorrow.
Help Support Old Mission Gazette - Click Here
Day Two: A few early bloomers, but most are still closed up in their tiny balls.
Day Three: Yes! A few more are popping out! But I will wait a day before posting photos on the Gazette, because I know that once I post the photos, people will be driving out from town to pick them. And if they’re not in bloom yet, or if the early bloomers have all been picked, people will be emailing me and asking where those flowers are!
Peonies at Old Mission Flowers on the Old Mission Peninsula Jane Boursaw Photo
Ginny Coulter, owner of Old Mission Flowers and a lifelong friend, says the flowers have been loving all the rain and warm weather this week. Well, during the week, it got into the 90s, but as I write this on Friday night, it’s 50 degrees out there. Yay, Michigan weather.
Below are a few more photos of the peonies in various stages of bloom, along with some other lovely flowers at Old Mission Flowers. Peonies are $3/stem, and less if you buy a quantity. Other large flowers are $2/stem, and fillers are $1.00 a stem.
Because of COVID-19 protocols, Ginny asks that you please bring your own mask, bucket of water, gloves and clippers.
Listen, if you are feeling like the world is on fire and you’d like to hide out in the woods, go to Old Mission Flowers and just soak up some of the flower vibes there. It’s like a magical bubble where everything is... Mar 19, 2020

Also lupine, cream cups, goldfields, owl’s clover and yellow daisy-like coreopsis. This year, you’ll see patchy areas of blooms, not a carpet like last year.

Frosty flowers? Early bloomers need a blanket this weekend - The Intelligencer
Erin Kinley, an area master gardener coordinator with the Penn State Extension Service in Collegeville.Kinley said daffodils and other early bloomers are hardy plants, but because we only had traces of snow this winter, there’s nothing to protect them from freezing temperatures like the Arctic blast expected to arrive Thursday night and keep the daytime high Friday to only 30 degrees or lower throughout Bucks County.Nighttime temperatures will drop into the low teens. The winds that will accompany the cold front won’t help either, since they’ll dry out the air.Kinley suggested adding a layer of mulch or leaves to protect the plant shoots. If you have any low, early blooming bushes and can cover them with some type of blanket, it might protect them from the frost.“The blanket should reach the ground,” she said, to act as an insulator. Peach trees are also early bloomers but she wasn’t sure if they’ve started to bud.Kinley said the start of spring has been moving up in recent years, but having the flowers sprouting their leaves in early February definitely is much earlier than normal for plants that normally don’t appear until March.“It’s really strange,” said meteorologist Patrick O’Hara at the National Weather Service in Westampton, New Jersey. Temperatures for the month of February so far as measured at Trenton, the closest measuring station for Bucks County, are 9.4 degrees above normal.“That’s a significant amount, pretty warm,” he said. And that’s on top of an average of 5.7 degrees warmer than normal for the month of January. “The whole area is experiencing this kind of warmth,” he said.But at least the plants have been getting plenty of water to drink. The precipitation total for February at Trenton amounted to 2 inches so far.After two cold days Friday and Saturday, ...
