Way to go Sam Alboy! Lucky thing for all north-westerners of Tucson. Be sure to check out this absolutely fresh food and Hawaiian flavors in their simplicity!!
There are so many great summer plants to choose from in our local nurseries now!
Hi - the seeds do the best but I am too impatient to wait for them to grow. :) Some of my most successful zinnias were volunteers!! I also only buy 4" plants and larger as the jumbo or six pack root systems are too small to have a great success rate in our heated soils.
I had the wrong link for a sample thermometer. Here is another example - but there are many to choose from. http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.js…
Good for you - bringing plants back from the almost dead category that is!! Sorry - no handbook available. I bet you have figured most of the low costs ways to plant yourself! Shopping yard sales and getting cuttings, seeds, etc from friends is certainly the way to work on a budget.
And my potted enews is free so be sure to subscribe. Happy Gardening!
Well- when I wrote this the forecast was great! So if you are in a cold area of Tucson and surrounding communities, let this storm front pass through before planting. April 21st sounds good to me!! (or May...)
I have not had much luck with planting Texas Rangers in pots. I don't think they get enough root room for the plant. But in the landscape, I totally agree with you!
