Clematis and a poorly esperaza. The esperanza has to winter over in the greenouse here. Please ignore the buckets of rooting brugs, also just out ot the greenhouse at that time. These pics weare taken in Mid-April
Have you ever tried growing garlic as a companion to your roses? The sulfur is a natural fungicide. If you haven't you might want to try it for future prevention. Garlic teas are also used to keep fungus gnats away.
Chris, that is a sweet azalea... so demure and delicate compared to mine. I have 2 bushes left of that one. I have had them for over 20 years. Started out with six of them and they are the only two left now. They bloom earlier than a lighter one I have. It is more like yours. It is blooming now.
So far these are short but they are new plants. These were ordered from easy to grow bulbs. Actually it is my understanding that the cultivars grown for florists are not readily available to the general public. but they are really pretty. That pic doesn't do them justice. I have some more blooming now, and I will do pics soon...
