A happy find, not in the woods, but in the local #Fairhaven #Massachusetts #Walmart, was Phlox divaricata, a native that the big box decided to stock as one of its perennials this season. I bought a couple and planted them under my pine tree.

A low plant with light blue, five petaled flowers planted in a natural looking setting where the ground is covered with pine needles.

As an avid gardener and member of several online garden groups, it's fascinating to me how obsessed people are with wanting to know the name of some particular plant species. Someone once said that words are a tool of ego. That feels right. To know it, is to control it. I fall into this trap too. But on my best days, I can just experience nature and my wonderful little garden without needing to know things.

I find the history of agriculture in North America so interesting, here’s one of the reasons why. This is a chinampa, they were shallow lake bed gardens used by the Aztecs for farming. Their proportions allowed for optimal moisture retention for crops.

So this is sort of a corollary to yesterday’s rant about landscape fabric and I know it goes against people’s ideas of “gardening” but…

you don’t actually have to get rid of weeds.

What we call “weeds” are typically just very resilient plants that function as pioneer species which establish quickly in degraded & disturbed areas.

If you improve the conditions of the soil (via better aeration, water retention, nutrient & mineral cycles, etc) then the weed problem will solve itself.

@MaggieCi it's 98% perineal and we've been working on it for 18 years at this point so it's mature. Every year we get to watch the plants fight it out amongst themselves too, the hops tries to strangle everything, the valerian marches slowed away from the shade, the comfrey tries to smother everything and the evening primrose expands it's territory in its battle with the echinatia.
It's a very slow war and it's beautiful!

Spent the last month finishing up clearing a gravel pit in the backyard left by the previous owners in hope of putting in some sort of garden. This involved months and months of digging and more recently I was able to fill in some soil in an attempt to make up for the lost mass.

So here is a thread of me building things out. In case it isn't obvious, I have no idea what I'm doing. Questions and comments welcome!

Now that almost everything but a few spares have been planted out in my garden and I've installed the automated watering system on my balcony what remains is watering, weeding and harvesting.

Those aren't small chores, but it's an odd transition after a month of furiously planting out all the seedlings I grew.

A portrait view of three pale pink roses. Each is in a different stage of bloom: a flower bud still closed; a flower bud just beginning to unfurl; and an open rosette. The way the flowers are aligned vertically almost gives the illusion that it's the same flower blooming in a time-lapsed photo.
A solitary pink rose. It is blooming at the tip of a thin stem that also has several unopened rosebuds and a few dark green leaves. Background is out of focus.
Another pink rose fully in bloom with a trio of small unopened rosebuds behind it. It is a very similar photo to the other solitary rose, but is a different flower on the same rose bush. I couldn't decide between them so I posted both.

Meet #SalviLeucantha, the Mexican bush #sage!!

Is the vibrant purple bract flowering masses just beautiful?

It is a herbaceous (non-woody stemmed) plant that is native to subtropical and tropical conifer forests in central and eastern Mexico.

The flowers are usually white, emerging from coloured bracts. It is often grown in warmer locales for its prominent arching velvety blue or purple flowering displays.

Even though we’ve just hit winter here in Oz, this is blooming all the same. And is a welcomed burst of colour on a cool but sunny day (so far!!), today!

Please people, I’m begging you, do not bury landscape fabric in your gardens!

It’s terrible for soil health and for all the organisms that live in the soil. Plus, it doesn’t really even prevent weeds that well because they just grow on top of it.

Signed, someone who is pulling up thousands of square feet of landscape fabric buried under gravel by the previous homeowners.

Just use mulch instead, pretty please.

In a backyard setting, a small pond will be very beneficial to #wildlife. Here's the hand-dug bi-level pond in my garden. The upper section is shallow for animals to bathe and drink: bees, birds, bunnies. The lower section is wider (<4.5 feet) deeper (<3 feet). #Frogs in my area prefer small quiet ponds.

The special black liner can be purchased, seen here because deer, my nemesis, knocked many rocks off.

More in future toots.

Info requested by:

#biodiversity #gardening

A bi-level pond is shown. In the foreground is a shallow pond, roughly circular, perhaps four feet in diameter. It is surrounded by light colored stones. Beyond that and lower is a deeper pond no more than 4 1/2 feet wide and less than three feet deep. It is also surrounded by decorative light-colored stones that are larger. Behind the pond are canna lilies and there is a note that says they are for frog hiding. To the right in the larger pond there are water plants growing from the pond. There is a note there that says these water plants are for dragonflies to exit. At the bottom of the photo can be seen clover adjacent to the shallow pond and there is a note that says "clover lawn". In the shallow pond there is a reflection of trees that are not seen in the picture.

As #gardening season blooms and you make your plant list, consider adding #NativePlants to your gardens & pots this year. Carolinian #Canada defines native plants as "plants that existed in our region prior to European settlement; they have evolved alongside our native insect, bird and other animal species." Each province will have its own list of native plants, though there's a lot of overlap across the country.

I am trying to get 4 tomato plants in pots out on my back patio to survive the awful bugs that kill them every year

I read that peppermint is a good bug deterrent so I wiped a little peppermint oil on the edges of each pot

I plan on buying netting to keep birds away too and I will look for other bug repellent plants to set near my pots

What else should I do to minimize bugs pls? There's so many types in huge numbers near this 100yr old WV house

The tropf blumat is an ingenious device. I've seen many hobby projects involving digital sensors for automated watering. The tropf blumat is completely analog.

It's a ceramic cone, filled with water that you stick in the ground. A little tube goes through the top, which you can screw tighter or looser. The tube is connected to a thin hose connected to the water mains (with a pressure reducer).

The osmotic pressure from the cones opens the drip tubes whenever the ground is dry.

The Chelsea chop will cause the plant to rebranch. The downside is that it delays blooming, so you might want to chop only a portion. Since this can stress the plants, it should only be done to plants that have been in your garden for at least a year.
