1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited.

Good luck to you. I don't do composting (too gross for my blood) and I definitely don't do worms!

You need to add a molded snake head to that tree stump with the root running along side the house it could look like a boa constrictor.

Yes, I did a lot of bareroot and bulbs. And we had frost on the ground not even a week ago. Neutral

Some stuff is growing well, others are showing no signs of existence. My bareroot hostas are struggling due to the damage that the caterpillars did. I need to snap a few update pics and update my thread with the progress.

Shannon's Gardening Thread [2011-2013] - Page 3 Pbucket

One of our local nurseries was selling some of those bushes / plants with the droopy white flowers. They also had some mature plants in their own landscaping. I liked the look of them, but wondered what they will look like for the rest of the summer. I didn't even take note of the name. Yours looks nice and you'll have to show us another pic later in the season.

No, that bush-like plant that's in the picture to the right and front of the plant you call a stick.

Laughing You're lucky, I planted a bunch of Lily of the Valley bare roots and only two of them are making very slow progress. The rest are not showing any signs of life at all. Sad

Do you know how long to wait on planted bare roots to show signs of life before throwing in the towel and taking them back to the store?

If you have a few good-sized plants from all the bare root plants you planted, I would surmise that the ones not coming up did not make it.

Looking good, Shannon! I saw a big, purple clematis bloom while walking today and wondered if yours has bloomed yet!

Thank you Lisa, that's what I was suspecting but didn't want to dig them back up prematurely. Going to make some returns for sure then next week. Sad
