We all need to share our gardening secrets...

Remember when planting perinneals...weep, creep, leap!  Teh first year they weep or barely do anything.  The second year they creep or do a little betten then the first year.  The third year they leap or take off.

Most clumping perrinials should be split every three years.

When buying perrinials, buy ones you can split into 2.  This is a money saver.

Want really nice roses...dig a small ditch around it and burrow a cut up banana peel.  Within days your roses will get new branches that are red in color.  Eventually the branches will turn green.  When they do, add more peels.


When planting strawberries, more the off shoots in a row next to the original plants.  Do this the first and second year.  On the third year get rid of the first year plants.  Keep this pattern going for great strawberries.

When planting a perrinial garden, consider not only size of the plants but time of bloom.  Plant so you will have flowers every season.

I know I have more but can't think right now.

My herb garden is potted and on the porch.  I love it...no weeds, easy to reach and looks great.

Cherry and grape tomatoes are a pain in the ass, unless you have the time to pick twice a day.  Make sure to cage your tomatoes to keep then off the ground.  You can also miz flowers and veggies in the same containers.
