Planting Time For Lily And Bulb

Tuesday, September 15th, 2009

Fall is bulb planting time. Most lily species are planted now. The lily bulb is very sensitive to drying out and should be planted as soon as received. Plant bulbs four to six inches deep according to the species. Most lilies enjoy fertile soils, richly supplied with organic matter.

Since most of them prefer cool soils, the planting of ground cover plants over the lily beds is helpful in satisfying this condition. Good drainage is a must for most lily species. There are many superior varieties of lilies on the market today in a great variety of colors and forms. Many of these are hardy for the West area.

No group of plants gives better spring color than the spring flowering bulbs. Tulips, daffodils and hyacinths provide a mainstay for the border.

Tulips are most widely used because they are the hardiest. For bordering, grape-hyacinths, scillas or squills, chionodoxas, and crocuses are unexcelled. Secure large, well-grown bulbs from a reliable source. Plant the bulbs to a depth equivalent to two to three times the diameter of the bulbs.

Its not a very pleasant sight to see your bathroom in a not-so-tidy shape. Who wants to be stormed by plumbing problems of this kind? Keeping in mind the importance of a clean bathroom, its certain that nobody wants to own a dirty bathroom. I really believe that one should go in for effective bathroom remodeling.

So really- It is not going to be a bad idea to go in for green plumbing in your bathroom. We shall thus be able to contribute to the global environment by making a washroom that is eco friendly as well as energy effective.

`A prime advantage of green plumbed bathroom would be of plunging plumbing expenses. In a matter of time, you would notice that your bathroom parts do not require any effort and equipment installation replacement.

So the falling need for a plumbers services will only make your budgets get less burdened. What you could do for starters is ” go for earthy, light and easy plumbing equipment in the bathrooms. These should serve just right if they lead to optimal usage of water, and light/electricity- the two things that should be consciously conserved.

Plants And There Needs

Thursday, April 2nd, 2009

I am building another lamplight greenhouse, so I can expand my study of roses under artificial lighting. I had some very astounding results from cuttings made during the winter and, believe it or not, several are blooming at this very moment in the garden.

My failures were also ever present, but from each 1 learned a lesson, be it in rooting mediums, temperature, hardening off, or what- ever problems beset the indoor gardener. One thing I do know is that it works if you know how to properly balance the lights and take certain other precautions.

I bought a dormant rose the second week in March, planted it in a pot and set it alongside my propagating box under lights. On April 27 I cut my first rose of the year, and I believe the first one in this area. It caused quite a commotion. When I told people I raised it in a basement they said I was “nuts.” The rose had never seen daylight until it was cut and brought out of the house.
