In the latest edition of Sunset magazine’s trusty ‘The New Western Garden Book’ (now available in interactive ebook form!), the botanical names of plants are examined and demystified.
A must-print out for those who are taking any sort of plant materials classes or attempting the Certified Plant Professionals test.
that awkward moment when you go on amazon after searching about all the pesticides that you’ve found in your school’s greenhouse and find the labels for them and find that just one of the bottles costs over $300… that’s nice i guess.
If anyone is near the Charlotte area, I will be participating in the Southern Spring Home & Garden Show with my college. I will be hosting Caldwell Community College’s garden on Friday, March 1st from 10am - 2pm and Sunday, March 3rd from 2pm - 6pm (if you see anything you’d like to purchase, this is the day to come! we will sell as much as possible to keep from having to haul things back home with us. this includes the props, fencing, and plants!). There will be many things to do there and there are quite a few special guests attending. :]
So I’m going to school fulltime, just started doing a work study at school, and I’ve been elected the secretary of the Gardening club, so I don’t have a lot of time to be posting. Hopefully when the whole mid-term part of the year is over I can start enjoying tumblr, but it’s too much of a distraction. I love you all. <3
We’re considering using this movie as inspiration for a garden for the Southern Spring ‘13 Show. I’d be lying if I said I was only a little excited.
I’m really working on this. I was one of the first people offered a job (workstudy) to one of the first ever landscape/gardening program tutors. And although this courseload is dragging me down a bit, I plan to do it. It’s really exciting that I was offered this, but also really scary because I’m getting myself into situations I never expected. And.. well, I’m scared.
I’m a tired little hippo. Things to be positive about:
We washed our chickens yesterday
I did this to one of my girls once when she had been pecked really badly and had mud all over her. She held a serious grudge.
