Composting All Year

Composting is an activity that can be practiced all year long. Spring yard clean-up produces plenty of compostable material. Also, continue to diligently collect kitchen scraps to put into your compost heap or composter.

Featured Gardening Plants

Each month we highlight different garden plants. We draw your attention to them for a variety of reasons: Some of them are reaching their peak this month, while others are interesting plants you may want to learn more about and grow in your garden.

Colorita (Peruvian Lily)

A Great Deck Plant

Colorita plants are both strikingly beautiful and low maintenance. And perhaps best of all, the plants produce a season-long profusion of bright, azalea-like blooms. They are at home in your flower beds. And they are excellent in a container on your deck. This beautiful perennial is low maintenance, too. A little more frequent fertilizer helps this flower garden plant to be its showy best.

Colorita plants are grown from tuberous rhizomes or seeds. Most people propagated them by separating the rhizomes. Give any extras to your gardening buddies. In late fall, overwinter them in a container in your garage.

Pumpkins

Big Pumpkins, Small Pumpkins

If you have enough garden space, pumpkins are a fun plant to grow. Used in baking and fall decorating, pumpkins are beloved by all. June is prime time for planting these tender annuals. They will ripen at the perfect time in early fall to adorn your porch in a bright, orange glow.

As for garden space, if you are somewhat space limited, why not let the vines grow across your lawn? it's only for a few weeks and any damage to the lawn is just temporary.

Hanging Baskets

Add Beauty to Your Home

This time of year, the favorite place for gardeners to be is out in their gardens lovingly tending to their plants. The second most popular place to be, is in garden stores selecting the plants we want to grow. High on the list for many of us are hanging baskets. And the garden stores know what you want. As a result, they offer a huge array of colorful flowers, and hanging vines for you to take home. Hanging baskets are a form of vertical gardening, that opens, especially for space-constrained areas.

Hanging baskets look stunning placed around your home under the eaves or hanging off a balcony or deck. While they look great, they need a fair amount of attention.  Plan on watering them often, maybe daily in hot weather.  And, they need frequent applications of fertilizer to keep them vibrant and blooming.
