Where do I start, this topic needs a forum of its own.
Mostly my gardens are in their second year so I was thrilled and amazed with every two week cycle of blooms.
The stupidest thing I did was to accidentally spill fireplace ashes on the Rhodies last winter.
1 of them is looking awfull.Hope there is a fix somewhere.

It was th dead of winter when I spread ashes, the bag broke in the wind and most of the ashes blew onto the rhode.
I never gave it a second thought all season ubtil I saw the drooping leaves.
I dont think we have taken in the hoses yet I'll try to flush it today.

DH dumped 5 gallons of cold ashes on our one rhodie. I sent him out to scrape it all off and when that didn't do so much, I had him shop-vac it out of the soil and we topdressed with lots of good stuff. I think that since I found it within a month of him doing it ( only maybe 2 rains), the bush recovered and did not get too sick.

I learned that even if we completely agreed that we would never move anywhere and would stay in this garden covered land until we died, we can change our minds pretty easily even after 14 years. I will never invest that much money in a yard again. The new owner does not do anything other than mow the grass. all of those huge beds, all of that work, all of that $, gone... though I am glad to have enjoyed it for so many years.

Junybug Thats a good way to look at it.
I dont regret one minute or one dime of what I have spent.
I rarely travel or go out so this is my entertainment.
All summer my friends come with others to see the gardens,I entertain with lunches when the garden is at its peak.
This brings company to me. Its well worth all the time.
I'm thankful the people who bought my house are gardeners and are keeping thinge going.
We bought this house which had gardens but along its history it was a rental for many years and gardens were neglected.
I'm redoing the originals and adding other garden spaces because I want certain plants that there isnt room for otherwise.

You do know wood ash raises the soil ph, right Jo Ann? And the rhododendrons want acid soil. One of my customers said they put wood ash on their siberian irises. Eek. I think I'm going to put that in the planting instructions, no wood ash. Great for lilacs, by the way.

Like GE, I learned many things this year. One that stands out is that the most well behaved plant, when moved to another location, can become a garden thug. I had some sedum growing under Maples for 4 years and it was very well behaved, but no longer worked as the bed evolved. I moved it to the other side of the Maples and it went wild. Now, I'm having to rip lots of it out.

I'm not familiar with that, will have to look it up. I do know blue star creeper. It's not the same as Angelina is it?

I've been planting a few of the ground cover sedums. And lots of the ground cover geraniums, such as Karmina and Biokovo, and I find they really do help keep the weeds down.

i would love to see a sedum and semp co-op. They had one a couple of years ago with Squaw Mountain, I think it was, and the plants looked beautiful from the pictures they showed.

Polly, Estrailrider ran a Semp co-op in the spring. Maybe she'll do it again this spring. It was her first co-op so she kept it small. Also, she didn't know any DGers in her area and was afraid to get overwhelmed by the packing. But some nice DGer drove 3 hours to come help her pack.

No, It's not Angelina. Maybe I'll take a photo of it. I may have the name wrong. On the other hand, last fall I planted a bunch of Japanese Sedum "Ogon" and none of it survived. I am also very unimpressed with the Tri-color sedum. It hardly has any presence at all no matter, where it's planted.

Pirl, Yes I thought the Ogon was very pretty. After I bought them, I read somewhere that they were only hardy to zone 7, but PlantFiles says zone 6. I had it planted in a windy exposed area. I try not to zone push as I find that my gardens are handicapped enough already. LOL

I couldn't really get a good shot of this Sedum as it has already gone dormant for the winter. In summer, it gets a small yellow star shaped flower.

Our next door neighbor wasn't a gardener and she died almost two years ago leaving the house vacant and it's still not sold. To prevent weeds from getting over here I have no choice but to clear all of her weeds on the side of the house and the edge of the property. The grown adult daughters do not live nearby and when they do come out they do not weed.

Stormy,

From the picture that you show of your creeping sedum, it looks like "creeping Charlie", something I learned about in the Mid Atlantic Garden forum, when Holly asked my to bring her some creeping Jenny. This creeping charlie grows wild everywhere in my gardens and pots, and even though it is easy to pull out, the job goes on forever.

This year i learned that all my attempts to start cleome seeds inside were futile because they need the winter chill to tell them when it is warm enough to start growing. My neighbor had sprinkled some seed in my garden last year, and I was given some at a swap, so I did have the flower that I really wanted in my garden this year.

Cleome and cosmos begin to show up around Mother's Day here. So I would just guess that sprinkling the seeds late April would be ideal. We have grown them from seed and then, of course, we ended up with more than we could possibly use but they are easy to pull. If they expand to other gardens they can be headaches because you'd be pulling everywhere. I can only handle them in one garden.

Roses, This is Creeping Charlie. This is the spot where the voles leave my side of the house bed and travel across the lawn to my road side bed. I sprayed the vole run to kill the charlie, but the entrance points to both beds require constant hand pulling because of the plants there. Everywhere the voles run, charlie and thistle moves in. Last week, I gave this the hands of death treatment.

Pirl, I would use a Broadleaf spray and not Roundup. Roundup will leave the ground barren and the most virulant weeds will move in. That's what the neighbor did 3 years ago to create the problem. He killed all of the vegetation and left the ground fallow and every invasive weed species moved in. If he had just put grass seed down, we wouldn't have the problem.

It is portulaca. I clicked on the picture, held down the CTL key and hit the plus sign over on the numbers keypad until I had it enlarged to 225% and yeah, it is that weed. It has to be killed before it seeds or you will fight it forever... Thick mulch helps.


Oh yeah, after you look at the picture, you have to hold the CTL key down and hit the minus sign until it is back to only 100% (% sign is over there in the bottom right hand corner above the clock)

Jo Ann - the vine with purple berries? If so, that's the Porcelain vine and a big problem to us in the past. I spent an entire month, 5 to 8 hours a day, removing that and ivy along over 100' along the property line. Now I always check to be sure none of either of those are growing back again.

Someone explained here at DG (I think) that nut sedge is a perennial, not a grass, so the Sedgehammer would work but regular grass killers won't do the job.

Pirl, Yukk! I've never had that Porcelaine vine, but at my last garden I had a hugh patch of Ivy to remove. I recall it taking forever. For the first three years that I was here, my morning garden stroll always included spraying woody weed killer on the emerging Kudzu. So many new ones would show up every day over a hugh area. That's why I never planted any ornamental vines until that white fence went up. I was vineaphobic!!

The Solanum that I get also has purple berries:

I didn't know kudzu was into Pa, I thought it was a southern thing. I hope it's not hardy here.

Polly, It's deciduous here, but it is destroying all of the trees along the roads and highways. The electric and phone companies are having the devil of a time with it on their poles and towers. I'm not sure how far north it has gotten. I don't remember seeing much of it in the Poconos.

Glad to learn about the Sledgehammer. Stormyla, I can identify with you completely on being a vineaphobic. I am one myself.

Juneybug, If you go looking for it online, it's Sedge, not Sledge. Well, I just this summer planted about 30 vines, so we'll see how I can stand it. They are a lot of work, tying them up to grow on their supports. But my neighbor put up an ugly hugh fence and I needed something that will grow quickly to soften it.

Yeah, that website is going into my favorites since it seems to be the best compilation of pest/herb-icide knowedge out there.
