More Leaves, Fruit and Other Young Tree Maintenance. 11.19.18
Denoo! Your Wagon wheel Garden is beautiful.
How you people control the PH. If I want to maintain PH between 5 and 5.5 what to do in the absence of PH meter. Currently I use three different types. Vinegar, Sulphuric acid and humic acid. But I am not sure of required quantity and if there is difference in the use of acid in winter and summer months?
Dalas! Catus seeds are more difficult to raise than human seeds(I have experince with both). Here even people in the business of cactus plants don't try seeds. Instead they use another intresting technique. When a grafted plant reaches reasonable size, some part of it is left on the stock at time of cutting. In this way they not only get a rooted plant but remaining part on the stock starts producing offshoots(it produces 10 to 20 plants).
That is an excellent idea, it would be easy to do and if you have scrap lumber, or a lumber yard may have scraps so you wouldn't have to spend a lot for wood. I like the idea of stones or bricks as well. I'm glad you like the idea.
Wagon Wheel Herb Garden
geometric garden design idea
Sentient, when I see a garden geometric design idea your name pops into my head.
Two Men and a Little Farm:
Here is a delightful geometric design idea. They borrowed the idea and say it is relatively easy to build. Notice the water hose bowl bottom-right.
Dallas! Espostoa and the cristate are realy great. Here we prefer to buy grafted plants. They are easy to handle and grow much faster than the rooted plants. On attaining the size near to size of mature plant graft is broken and plants are converted to rooted ones. You people live in the home of cacti, here it is very difficult to get a desired plant. We usually spend more in search of plants than the actual price. Only way left is raising collection from seeds. First time I bought seeds from Chiltren Seeds but was unable to germinate a single one. Then I tried Cactus Store seeds.Germination rate was astonishing. But now I couldn't handle the seedlings. About 300 out of 2000 are still alive and perhaps out of danger at an age of one and half. My real love are Espotoas, pilosocereus, micranthocereus, Austrocephalocereus and oreocereus(wooly cereus). I had more than 450 seedlings of their different varities but unfotunatly nothing servived apart from three(perhaps overcare). Now I am trying Mesa Gardens and Succseeds. Hope past experience counts. Have you anything from pilosocereus faimly?
Hy Dallas, its realy nice to see someone intrested in cacti. Notocactus with yellow hair like spines in the center of the picture is a very nice plant. If it make a wooly barrel in future then it is an unusual plant. Take care, it alone is precious than all other collectively. Which barrels have you bought?
Dallas, your plants are so pretty, and I recognize some of the lawn grass as the kind we had in Killeen. I like the way your brick walls and fence blend together and the way you use your plants. The cactus bed presents a nice blend of textures and colors. Clay pots add a nice tone to a garden. I remember as Feb and March being miserable months with cold, wet, windy weather with occasional snow.
Good night everyone, hope you all have a fine weekend.
Dallas, These are such beautiful plants. Truly, one of the benefits of living in Texas is the great array of plants available. Enjoyed the visit to your garden.
Sentient, If my brother was still with us, he could probably tell us whether those mushrooms are edible or not. He was an amateur, but he probably knew more about mushrooms than anyone in Idaho. Maybe some other states as well!
