The Japanese Honeysuckle

The Japanese Honeysuckle

The Japanese Honeysuckle (Lonicera japonica) originated in Eastern Asia and was imported to the United States in the nineteenth century, with the intention of using it for ground cover. Currently, it thrives all across the southern and eastern states. This honeysuckle has not adapted to the northern states because it cannot handle the harshness of northern winters. In fact, it cannot handle any cold well.

The Japanese Honeysuckle can be rather vicious to other plants, from little shrubs to plants as large as small trees. Its shade can be downright deadly for plants that grow where this honeysuckle chooses to live. If the plants it starves of sunlight do not die, they will still not grow to their full potential and may lose their reproductive ability.

Enjoy In The Garden Room!

Enjoy In The Garden Room!

The dividing lines between greenhouse, conservatory and garden room are vague, and experts disagree over the definitions. It is best to regard a greenhouse (or glasshouse) as a structure made entirely or mainly of glass or transparent plastic and which is entered from the garden. It is arranged almost exclusively for the comfort of the plants rather than for the people who tend or look at them.

A conservatory is similar in physical appearance with glazed walls and roof but is generally more ornate than the standard greenhouse. The basic difference, however, is that entry is generally through the house and there is provision for people to sit and enjoy the plants. Still, the beauty and welfare of the plants and their arrangement are the key factors.

Growing Tomato In A Containers

Growing Tomato In A Containers

Tomatoes are a common favorite garden vegetable/fruit. But we often stop and wonder how in the world can you grow full sized tomato plants in a pot?

You need a fairly good-sized pot but his can be obtained very easily. Choosing approximately a 25-30 gallon container made of resin, plastic garbage container, durable plastic or wood should work well. Light colored containers are your best choice because in certain hotter climates the darker the container the more heat it absorbs the more likely it will burn the roots. Metal containers are not recommended either because the container will get too hot for good root growth, thus producing toxins and killing the plant. Even if you have a good area for growing tomatoes container planting is a sure way of preventing soil-borne fungal diseases. By using a good soil-less potting mix this provides a virtually sterile environment for your tomatoes. Do not add compost to the pot or rocks to the bottom of the pot this might introduce possible diseases.

How To Plant A Rose Garden?

How To Plant A Rose Garden?

A rose garden is an ideal getaway for you any time of the day. Relaxing in a well planned rose garden can help you to relieve the stresses of the day with its beauty. You can plant a beautiful and relaxing rose garden if you follow some easy steps in planning and in raising the rose bushes.

When you start to plan your rose garden, and begin planting the rose bushes, consider the color of the roses. If you plant roses of the same color next to each other, it will enhance the appearance of the rose garden. Too many varying colors mixed together will look like a random jumble of color, rather than a well thought out color scheme. So, plant roses of the same or similar colors next to each other, and then in another section of the garden, you can plant another color.
