I'm just now enjoying my crocus and it looks like in about a week my Hellebore will be in bloom. We still have mounds of snow in shady sheltered areas. This is our last burning weekend and I finally finished pruning all my shrubs and cleaning up the winter damage. Next I have to start rebuilding rock retaining walls, between the springs and gophers my rock walls only last a decade or so and then they start to tumble. Here's a small portion of my yard.

NOW I see why they call you the plant goddess! Well deserved moniker!

I missed crocus this year! I have never seen a year without crocus, but this season came and went without spying a single one. Wonder what happened! (daff's came up just fine, tulips all over the place, but no crokes.... hmm....)

What sweet gift! I really love dogwoods! Right now I am looking for a Red dogwood for my back yard. I can find whites and pinks but I really want a red one. My neighbor down the street has a huge beautiful red dogwood that I have been coveting for years. I finally decided to break down and get one, but I can't find one locally. I would really hate to have to pay shipping on a tree.

The red ones are gorgeous...I had never seen one and had to "google" it. Mine came from the woods nearby. I know you're not supposed to transplant them this time of year but it's rained solid for the last 2 weeks, the ground was super soggy and the tap roots were intact so now they are here!!! One is about 12' tall, the other is about 9'. Both have great shape and can be seen from the bedroom window. Yep, my son and husband did good.

Could you root the branches in wet sand, maybe?

Hey, I know we met on DG (Dave's Garden) way before KH, did I ever send you any of my heirloom Amaryllis seeds? I'll be glad to, I got plenty of the red (the coral never has been a good seed producer). Here's a pic - flowers are 6-7" across:


Anyone interested just PM me your address and I'll send you 50 or so seeds and if you send your email address I'll send the PDF with the plant's history and germinating instructions. The original was my husband's grandmothers back in the 60's or perhaps even as far back as the 40's.

More Amaryllis pics in my Picasa web album: http://picasaweb.google.com/arielluria/LuSGarden#

Actually we met on Gardeningclub.com forums and I have some of the coral ones from you. They are in my seed collection...that's been kept in a cool, dry place for a couple of years. I've been germinating some of the moonflowers and petunias. I'll pull out the Amaryllis seeds and see if they are still viable.

You are the one that told me about KH in the first place! Thank you very much!!!

That's my memory for you! I'm glad you got some corals, it's been a few years since I've been able to harvest ANY seeds from them.
