I started dinner plate dahlias indoors early. The green stem with no leaves is standing straighter and has a strong stem. The red stem is easy to lean side to side. How do I make it stronger? I don’t want it to be staked. I want it to be stronger. Will the stem turn green and eventually get stronger? And will this strong green stem get leaves soon? Thanks.4 AnswersGarden & Landscape3 months ago
I planted it very moist miracle gro and kind of watered a tiny bit more not thinking. The soil seems kinda mucky. I keep pressing down the soil with paper towels to get some of the moisture out. I’m afraid they may rot. Do you think I still have a chance with them? This is my first time doing this and I wanted to try and get ahead start. Thanks1 AnswerGarden & Landscape3 months ago
I plan on planting some dahlia tubers in a few weeks and some already have stems on them. How should you plant these? Will they be fine planted normally with the stems sticking out? Will they perk up and add leaves once they are planted in the sun? Thanks1 AnswerGarden & Landscape3 months ago
I plan on planting some dahlia tubers in a new raised bed. The height of the raised garden bed is 10.5 inches high. Can the tuber be just planted in the soil with weed block fabric underneath? Thanks.
I want to plant cabbage and kale seeds the package says I can start in early April but I still have frost and cold nights and mornings. I know they can tolerate some frost but I’m starting them from seed. Should I wait til mid May to do so?
That’s around my last frost date. Thanks for your help!3 AnswersGarden & Landscape4 months ago
My last frost date is sometime in mid to late May. Would it be a good idea to start some seeds indoors around Easter and then transplant them outside later on after the last frost? I’ve never tried this before. Is it worth getting a head start? Will it give them a head start? I don’t want to wait to long for them to bloom. Thanks2 AnswersGarden & Landscape5 months ago
If I plant some zinnia seeds thus spring in May to bloom this summer do you think those rodents will go after the plants while growing? I know they’ve dug up sunflower seeds before. Thanks3 AnswersGarden & Landscape7 months ago
Why do people love freezing food? Doesn’t it get annoying to wait for it to thaw? Why do people make food and then just freeze it instead of eating it right away? I just don’t understand why people love freezing everything. I’m interested cause I have a big freezer in my basement. Thanks for the info10 AnswersCooking & Recipes8 months ago
I brought my elephant ear into the basement a few days ago cause the nights were getting to cold with potential frost nights. I live in the New England area and the last frost is usually in May. Do I have to check on the elephant ear maybe in April and if there’s some growth should I bring it up treat it like a house plant and bring it outside after the last frost? I know now to May will be a long time. Thanks for your help!1 AnswerGarden & Landscape9 months ago
I planted some seeds all along the yard. I had seeds come up last year because they self seeded themselves. So if the seeds think they self seeded this time and survive the harsh cold winter do you think it will be possible to see them sprout next spring? Thanks!2 AnswersGarden & Landscape10 months ago
I planted two incredible sunflower seeds. They said it would be 6-9 inch blooms. Does it even look like it’s 6 inches? Idk. Do you measure just the disc or from one side of flower petals to the other?4 AnswersGarden & Landscape12 months ago
