Autumn Garden Plants And Planning

Autumn Garden Plants And Planning
Autumn in the garden is a special time for me. It is a time to reflect on the year and think about what has worked well and what things I would change for the next year. It is also a time where I get tired of all the upkeep and tend to slow down a bit just to sit and enjoy the garden. Perennials in Autumn When I design my flower gardens, I always include perennials that bloom in the fall and as well as annuals and foliage plants that will provide interest during a time when most gardens slow down. Various fall-blooming plants, such as asters and fall-flowering anemones, add a special touch late in the season and are beneficial to pollinators. I’m a huge fan of Echinacea. Although they’re normally done blooming by autumn, I never deadhead them because goldfinches love the seeds. They will … Read More

Overcoming SAD – Fighting Seasonal Blues With The Onset Of Autumn

Overcoming SAD – Fighting Seasonal Blues With The Onset Of Autumn
I have a love-hate relationship with autumn. Here in the high desert, autumn is often the most beautiful time of year, and it can be hot until the end of October. On the other hand, snow flurries on Halloween aren’t unusual. So, I appreciate the warm days of autumn. Summer is winding down and kids are back in school (well, maybe). Harvest has been completed for the year and farmers are busy planting next year’s crops. Hopefully, the roots get a good head start before cold sets in. My Seasonal Affective Disorder Begins in Fall I hear people talking about how fall is their favorite time of year, but it’s incredibly bittersweet for me because it means winter is on its way. I dread winter because I have what is probably the world’s worst case of SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder), or at least it seems that way to me because... Read More

Changing Of The Leaves And Other Fall Stuff

Changing Of The Leaves And Other Fall Stuff
Autumn reminds me of love. It was the season I met my husband and it was the time of year we married. The smell of a bonfire, the cheering of football games and the brisk chill of fall air takes me back to our first year together – when love was new and wonderful. Love is like autumn in the garden too. Why Love is Like Autumn Love is an odd thing – kinda like finding a stray seed at the bottom of the seed box. You plant it never knowing whether it’s your prized heirloom pepper variety or a weedy F2 generation hybrid. It sprouts and grows slowly and surely, like love sometimes does. Yet, it takes months before you see the first blossom. Then you must patiently wait for the fruit to develop. As it grows, you begin to see the true form of the pepper. Is … Read More

Houseplant Sitting – Sometimes Growing Plants Inside Is Temporary

Houseplant Sitting – Sometimes Growing Plants Inside Is Temporary
I love houseplants and I have several, but they’re really nothing to write home about, with one exception: my African violets are beautiful. Growing plants inside just comes natural for some people – like my son, who has beautifully huge plants. Caring for Houseplants – My Own Caring for houseplants isn’t too difficult. My African violets grow like crazy, and they bloom several times every year. They outgrow the pots rapidly, so I separate and replant them. Soon, I’ll be overrun with African violets. I also have a few Christmas cactus that I love. I started with one that bloomed reliably when I lived in Portland, where it was in a north-facing window. Now that I’m in Eastern Oregon, I have several, but I don’t have a north-facing window, and other than a few piddly blooms, they refuse to do much of anything except get bigger. They’re pretty even without... Read More

Cats Chewing On Houseplants – Choosing Plants For A Cat-Friendly Home

Cats Chewing On Houseplants – Choosing Plants For A Cat-Friendly Home
I love houseplants, but I also love my cats. This means my options are limited, but I have found some great options that won’t make them sick if they decide to take a nibble. Cat owners can enjoy safe houseplants and also grow riskier plants in safer ways. Choosing Plants for a Cat-Friendly Home I choose only houseplants that are non-toxic to my three cats: Bunsen, Beaker, and Stormy. They don’t have a lot of interest in eating plants, but it’s not worth the risk. Some of my favorites for growing indoors without worrying about the cats are: African violets – Always a popular houseplant for its pretty flowers, the cats don’t even try to eat the furry leaves on this one. Aluminum and friendship plants – These are closely related and have attractive small leaves. The former has leaves with a bumpy texture and the latter variegated stripes. Peperomia… Read More

Growing Houseplants – A Houseplant Collection Grown From Childhood

Growing Houseplants – A Houseplant Collection Grown From Childhood
I would venture to say that my houseplant obsession started in a way much different than most. I’m sure many people start out with a cutting someone has given them. Then they’ll catch the “houseplant bug” and the rest is history. I’ve seen this happen a lot! In my case, my obsession started out when I was a child and a big contributing factor was my father smoking up to two packs of cigarettes a day. So, how is my father’s smoking habit relevant, you may ask? Indoor Plant Growing Fascination I was always an inquisitive child and I started growing houseplants in grade school and even hybridized my own African violets in high school. My family is from Italy and I’m a first-generation Italian-American. Gardening has been in my blood and has always been a very critical part of my life. Everyone in my family has always had large...
