Forum Rules
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. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

Iris are blooming in the front, i guess when i divided them all up the white ones ended up all in the front, oops. and the little yellow flowers i think are a form of yarrow.

anyone know anything about Broom?
Jenn's Gardening Thread-2012 - Page 2 IMG_20120506_125954
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Broom_%28shrub%29
we are thinking about planting it in that new bed along the side of the house (pis above), doing a row of them. seems like a good option for an area i don't want to water (house/foundation)
they say they are zone 5 -20 but i know all to well that for me it does not matter if they are rated for our area they might not come back and at $10 a pop at HD i want to be sure.

Gorgeous! You certainly do have a green thumb. Probably 90% of my clearance plants make a full recovery.

I think i will have plenty this yr to share! i planted 3 this year and if i can keep sierra from digging them all up we should be good. freaking girl dug out one of my blooming pumpkin plants this morning Evil or Very Mad gonna kill her! guess i need to build a fence tonight....

Val, i buy a yard of biocomp dirt from a local stone/much/dirt yard (it fills the bed of kens truck!) and all the veggies are organic, i dont use anything on them, and use natural cider mulch. crossing my fingers for a good crop this year, i want to test if the dirt from last year produces as well as the new dirt for the size of the plants and the veggies.

Giant zuchs are easy, just leave on the plant for 2-3 extra days. Amazes me sometimes how I could miss a 18" zucchini on the vine. I had great luck with them last year as I beat the beetles from invading.

I KNOW! i will look everyday and then its like HOW THE HELL did i miss YOU giant zucchini! i did not bother with the yellow squash this yr as i only got 1 last yr. trying peppers for a 2nd time as they will not be in the same bed as the zuchs and maybe they will have a chance to grow. im excited and hope all my seeds to plants to garden bed make it this yr as i was a but wiser then i was last.

I have never seen a colombine before, I didnt know of that flower at all but it looks gorgeous. Is it a bush or climber? if it climbs like clematis and honeysuckle i am SOLD.

Chris, its Colorado's state flower Smile not a bush or a climber but a spreader, it reseeds its self every year and takes over, its a spring bloomer. i would say they get between a foot or a foot and a half high, and any where from half a foot to a foot wide. lots of colors to pick
