Some Quick Suggestions

I just purchased an artichoke plant in the nursery and from my research it looks like its a cool weather crop. Should I even try to plant it in central texas?

Almost ready to start seeds

by maco,

Today I went down to my local garden center, having measured the little closet that houses my sump pump, to get seed-starting supplies. I got two "Jump Start" T5 lighting rigs. I also picked up a Jump Start heat mat for seedlings to add to the one I already had. Add some trays and one new plastic...

Aloe vera

by Cesy,

[aloe vera](crop) is rapidly becoming my favourite unkillable plant, taking over from spider-plants because not only does it seed everywhere, survive me forgetting to water it for weeks, survive me over-watering in guilt when I remember, and not appear to care whether it has sun, shade, accidenta...

Compost and raised beds

by juliet,

Dug out half the compost heap again -- the fruit trees (apple, fig, cherry) and grape vines all need a good feed. When I made the first four raised beds (3 years ago), I mis-measured a bit, and while one of them fits neatly into the available gap between the paving slabs, the other three do n...
