|hi everyone! so nice to see you....it's spring and time to get outside & in the gardening mode! yeay!
ladyleaf, thank you for stopping by & sharing! i also love seeing all the low growing spring flowers; henbit, bluettes, spring beauties, and the others...they should be arriving here any day!
steven, have you ever tried diatomaceous earth? i use it sometimes to control aphids, its a natural way but use sparingly because it affects the exoskeletal of insects & don'tr want the beneficials harmed! last year there were some ants farming the aphids on the mountain mint-a native plant that i love..anyway, i dusted the entire stems w/diatomaceous earth and when i checked the very next day, they were all gone, the aphids and the ants!! the plant flourished!
hey mekos! nice to see you here! i've seen and heard talk about salvias being used to get high and other plants too! some of them are native wildflowers, i think, which makes me wonder how in the world can it be deemed illegal...i mean, it grows wild, like on its own??? crazy laws, IMO.
interesting gg, I've noticed that there are some other old time medicinal herbs that are now concidered illegal or harmful, or for whatever reason no longer considered medicine?? like the salvias, lots of things can be bad in excess!
