North Little Rock, Arkansas...

I know you did not ask for this...but I cannot mention my town without saying...

I am only moments from The Old Mill which is featured in the opening scenes of Gone With The Wind. Being the only standing structure that remains from the movie, the commemorative stamp was unveiled at this site in 1989. There are over 200 weddings performed here every year and is a very popular setting for prom, school, etc, pictures. Admission is free (free for weddings, too) and is open from dawn 'til dusk everyday. You can choose to tour at your own pace or have a tour docent (like me) guide you. The grounds and gardens are managed by The City of NLR, Friends of the Old Mill and Pulaski County Master Gardeners.

The park is decorated with sculptures of toadstools, tree stumps, and a tree branch-entwined bridges that connect the mill to the rest of the park. Senor Dionico Rodriguez, a sculptor and artist from Mexico City, was responsible for all the details of each piece of concrete work made to represent wood, iron or stone, as well as the designing of the foot bridges and rustic seats. He was so secretive about how he made these designs that he would mix the concrete in the trunk of his car and would close the deck lid if anyone approached. When the day was done, he would throw away the mixture buckets in an undisclosed location.

The Old Mill was nationally recognized in 1986 by being placed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Thanks, Flimsy. You are zone 6b? I am trying to discoverer if I am 6b or 7a. Some of the climate zone maps differ as you know. I am in the north part of Clarksville.

well...Hi >>> Sarge and all...
I some times keep a watch on Ya'll here.. and sometimes get to some of the RU's.. I caught a bunch at the Florala Meet.. this spring... and one down in LA last year or so
I garden here.. on the roof... and sometimes down your way... in Ardmore AL at the house I built there... got plenty of Brugs I play with there.. along with some other things .. it's more fun.. digging in the dirt at night .. there and seeing the glow worms.. like in the old song... I guess i could grow some on the rooftop... every thing else seems to grow... and I've plenty of earth worms..
I'm about to make the pesto for this year.. just a little longer to develop the crop of basil.. I try and put away 52 packages.. and have one a week through out the year... I used to roll it up in a baggie and freeze it... but then I'd have to heat it to use it.. and that would change the consistancy of it .. heating the parmasan cheese.. so now I put it in the baggie as always... but press it flat.. so when I take it out .. it's like a thin piece of parchment paper.. and i just drape it over the noodles and it's instantly ready to eat.. as it just heats by the noodle heat.. and no change in it's body..
every few years I make a batch of hot peppers from the ones I grow on the roof... they love it there as it's so hot in the summer... I measured it this summer.. the thermometer on the rubber membrane.. it shot up to 162 * F... plenty hot for most everything.. SO I say I'm zone 4-14... I grow an assortment the hottest peppers in the world.. and make the sauce using a differnt alchol every time.. a bunch of rhm... tequila.. or some burbon really gives it an after glow... to the heat... I found a mailorder nursery that listed 135 different hot peppers.. I thought noone has that many.. so I went and paid them a personal visit.. they were about 3 hours down into NJ.. near PA from here.. and they did indeed have about all the ones I wanted ready to go.. the few I didn't get I wanted they mailed out to me a few weeks later .. cute little plants ..some with flowers on them already.. OH I checked the site .. to make sure they were still going.. so I could send the link...now they say they have over 500 peppers and chilies.. and a pile of heirloom tomatoes... I used peppers .. peppers like devils tongue... and Fatale.. and all the bonnets... give them a try.. or at least a look see... and they rate them with the scovil #'s... so with the dozen or so I use ... of the hottest the y have.. i make a kickass sauce...

OH..I woke up from a short nap and I found myself in not the right place.. for this...
I thought I had done something wrong... then I understood... but it's always the right time /place to get help
UGgg Sounds like braod mites... the scorge of some of mine also... hard to kill... you need a mticide thaat does these specificly.. forbid might be one... I just dropped a pile with a friend on some new one called shuttle... and I don't think it does them... they are tinier than the spyder mites... [ which you can see ] and migrate about on knats or white flies.. that fly about.. ROSEMANIA.com has alot of killers.. get one for braod mites... or some plastic explosives..
I sure wish I was in the area... I'd definately come by for lunch at the meet up.. what would I bring... OH.. I make a great grilling sauce... you take a mango and put it in the blender with a habanero pepper ... and put it on anything on the grill... then after for desert.. you take it and pour it over vanilla ice cream... you get the cold/hot and the only thing to cut the pepper heat is the milk.. it being an oil also.. so you get the affliction and the cure in the same mouth full...
Good luck with the brugs... I have one must be 10 ft tall.. with tiny crinkled up leaves... so sad.. I should burn it.. if only I could have my burn pile here ...

Hi GordonHawk -- This seems like a good forum for you too since you also garden in AL. I loved the pesto idea and am going to use it when I make pesto from my basil plants. I won't make that much as I only have 3 plants but I love the stuff and might expand the basil growing next year. Also loved your rooftop garden. Very cool. Where do you live in relation to the garden ... adjacent, below? Inquiring minds want to know.

Charlotte.. well thanks... it sounds like you'll fun there ..I was a delta boy by birth... Cleveland,MS.. and I've a few brugs in Greenville at some relatives there... Yes... brodmites are the worst... and most difficult to rid ones self of ... some say to pick off alll the leaves and spray...others suggest just throwing it away and spraying everything else for them.. I find it hard to do...maybe that's why I still have them..
Cville... well I live just below the garden... it's been up and running for 15 years now... no leaks yet... I'll be the first to know.. I've done lots to minimise the load ... so far so good...
OH good Linda... I hope so... I've been lurking for awhile on and off...

I certainly can't bring myself to just throw them away! I did spray them with Bayer Disease Control about a week ago and I can actually see some improvement. I went out this morning and did pick off some of the leaves. I'm getting ready to go out and search the products and Lowe's and Home Depot and see what else I can find. I have some impatiens that have the same problem and have also noticed it on a tea shrub. So looks like I need to find a whole bunch of some kind of product and get to spraying!!!

charlotte... you might not have broad mites... but it sounds like you might ... unless your new product says it's for broadmites.. it's likely not going to really work... I don't think hD or Lowes has anything for them... I often use a cocktaail of Seven..bug b gone...malathion... but it doesn't hit the broad mites...you'd think it would ..all that posion... do try to get something that mentions broad mites on he label

Maybe I'll get lucky!! We've had record high temps this summer and it is wrecking havoc on everything! It was 104 here this weekend and humid as all get out.

Well, heck, it would ruin our reputation for good ol' Southern hospitality if you weren't welcome here. I think we welcome everyone. Even a Brooklyn boy. ;-) Hey, I was in CA for 37 years. But you don't appear to be a city slicker at heart. Your brugs are lovely and your garden is a fine one ... even if it is on top of a roof in NYC. Gotta' love that. You could probably teach a lot of us Southern gardeners a thing or two. Cperdue is so right in that the weather this year, especially this summer, has been brutal for a lot of us. Hopefully, it will be coming to an end fairly soon.

I made my run to Lowe's and found a Bayer Advanced product called Insect, Disease, and Mite Control. It doesn't specifically list broad mites but it does list several types of mites. I thought I would give it a try. Hope it actually does some good. I bought 2 bottles (you attach it to a water hose) and thought I would just spray everything! All this heat and drought is causing all kind of problems. I have two groups of folks coming through my gardens this month so I need to keep things looking as good as possible.

I'd split it with you or with others perhaps split 4 ways... or 8 ways... you only use a smalll amount of it.. so even 1 oz would give 30 gallons of spray...@ 1/4 - 1/8 tsp / gal applications over years... maybe $40 for the oz.. if we can get 8 folks with broadmites to go in on it ... $ 40.00 for 30 Gallons of relief...

I think we're looking to split the 8 oz of Judo... which is $335 8 oz.. 16 ways... that's perhaps about $25 each with the bottle and shipping... you can make anywhere from 12 - 25 gallons of spray... depending on concentration...Judo kills all mites.. including the dreadded Broad Mite.. is translaminar...[ you spray the top of the leaves and it kills then underneath ] and it lasts 30 days in the plant... come on over and sign up.. and join the contest for a Brug also

Great! I sprayed yesterday with my Bayer stuff. We'll see what happens. I read somewhere in researching the little critters during the last several days that overhead watering can help as it helps wash them off. They get overhead water from my irrigation system so that has not helped. Before I sprayed with the Bayer, I did go around and hosed them all down really good. I got the spray up underneath the leaves then after that I sprayed with the Bayer product. I decided I needed to spray with something as all my plants are really packed in tight. I don't have room to totally isolate things. Also since I have noticed similar looking distorted leaves on impatiens and a few other plants.

Hi, Im in Olivehill, TN New to TN gardening. I live on a hill--- 2 inches of soil over 400ft of rock. Explains why there was no lanscaping done. I love TN but I do NOT appreciate your sneaky snakes !!!!!! However, rock and snakes will not keep me from landscaping this place. All I need ---- snake boots and a jackhammer.

Snakes and rocks. That started again today in my backyard. When the temp gets up close to 70 they start wigglin' around under
the leaves and rocks in my veggie garden. My cats go crazy! Yadier, my tuxedo cat caught one this afternoon. Sometimes it's
those little lizards, skinks I think. The snakes are just the garden variety. Anyway, I opened up the house today and let in some
fresh air, then I got started on my pruning. Texas Sage, Kerria Japonica, & Nandinas. Tomorrow Crape Myrtles.
How 'bout you Duckmother?

Greetings Silk ,

Welcome to the Mid South Gardening Forum. The thread had sort of died out and I was new back over a year ago or so and there was not a thread where I could really see who was in my area or where I even belonged and that bothered me. Therefore, I revived this one. It is nice to have you here and for others to see just who is in their area as they too can make friends much easier.


Hello Jeri,

Havenít seen you in a bit good to see you . how is things down your way ? are things getting back to normal after all the bad weather you have had your way?


Cindy,

Yes, it was a bit of scare, we had the DG, and several other of our other on line Family/friendly Communities posting and looking for Savannah. It only took 36 hours to recover her, although for me it seemed like a lifetime as with any parent your mind goís into panic mode and thinks about what is or could happen. Thankfully the good Lord was with Savannah and us through the entire thing and brought her home safely.

Actually the drought is a good thing for once. Our soil was so dry when they opened the spillway it soaked up so much of the water the flood estimates were off.

I would take a thunder bumper Cindy but I'll keep watering instead of the weather in Mo. My T's & P's are with those people!!!! Jim delivered to Smithville, Ms. and a bunch of his friends are going to Ga.

Hello Christina!!! Welcome to the forum!!! Glad you could join us!!!

I have family and friends on both sides of Texarkana. My DH was raised there for part of his life. I bet we know some of the same people. We motor home and most of our group is from there.

Sorry that I have been soo quite but the heat down here is kicking my butt!!! We have had no rain still and I'm spending the entire day watering!!!!! Yesterday, I took off and the family went to Bayou Countryfest at LSU. It was amazing!!!! The best music on earth for sure!!! Everybody was country for the day!!! But this old girl knows just how old I am after spending the day at the concert and had I not had the stints put in last year would not have made it at all.

Charlotte I wasn't sure you were doing the right thing having your thyroid removed but now I'm very glad that you did. In fact, I am going to have mine checked!!! I pray that everything goes well with your Dr's appt. and he helps guide you to the right path of treatment!!!

Jeri my GP didn't think I should have it removed either. He thought I should just have it monitored. He actually got upset with me when I told him I was having it taken out. He said what are the chances of it be cancer?? Well I'm so glad I listened to my instincts and got it out. If I had gone the route of having a needle biopsy it would not have shown anything either as the actual nodule that was growing on the thyroid was benign. The spots of cancer were actually in the thyroid itself, You do need to have your thyroid checked regularly. Thyroid problems seem to be more prevalent in women. Once you've had surgery, you can spot other people that have also had surgery. You would be surprised at the number of women that have had thyroid surgery. Most are benign. This was my second surgery as they only removed half my thyroid the first time. I was fully expecting it to also be benign again this time. If you have any first degree relative that has had thyroid cancer your chances increase dramatically. Normal statistics are only about a 1% chance. My first cousin had thyroid surgery in Dec and her's turned out to the cancer. I could feel on thickening on my thyroid and her diagnosis got me into action. Long story to say - yes you need to get yours checked!!

I love getting dirty and watching plants grow and show off.

Thanks for the wonderful welcome.

I'm on a new gardening adventure as we just moved to FL and I'm in the process of learning what will grow here, as oppose to what I use to have when we lived up north.

Hello everyone!

I'm Amy, and new to both gardening and to the Charlotte, NC, area (my zip code is 7b although a mile down the road is 8a). My DH has just retired from the military and we can finally settle down after 6 locations in 8 years!! I finally have a home of my own and a chance to work with things that grow, and I'm excited. So my learning curve is pretty steep, although the advice I got from a local nursery--"forget everything you know about gardening in the North"--is easy to follow as I knew absolutely nothing. I've been devouring books, magazines, and articles as often as I can around raising two little girls (5 and 1), so hopefully it'll pay off when I have a chance to plan things next year.

DG is a little overwhelming in terms of finding my way around, but I'm working on it. I think this forum will be a favorite, as y'all can help me with specific insight to our area. Can't wait to get to know all of you!

Hello Amy!!! Welcome to the world of gardening and DG!!!! Please tell you husband thank you for his years of service!!! It means everything!!!!

If I am understanding your post you are not putting the beds together until next year? If that is so than you can start the preparation now on the soil. There is a method that has been very helpful to a lot of gardeners. You simply pick where you want the new bed and lay down cardboard. Then put on your compost and mulch and simply wait for the spring. No back breaking digging at all!!!

Thank you, Jeri! And I will certainly pass on your kind words. We military families truly do appreciate it when people say kind things to our loved one--it means the world to us.

Well, I did a bunch of stuff this year, but since I had no idea what I was doing, there's much to be done in the fun stuff next year. I did start to prepare a few areas by cutting down the grass, covering with newspaper & cardboard, and tossing compost & mulch on it to let it "bake" for next season. ;)

Our builders did an appalling job on the landscaping. Shrubs were 6-8" out of the ground and obviously just tossed in. I literally lifted them out of the ground--by myself--with no preparation or digging. They were grotesquely rootballed and had never been prepared or filled back in. DH was able to relocate the crepe myrtle by just lifting it out of the ground as well. Oh my goodness...

We basically relandscaped the entire front. I'll have to post pictures, but we got a lot done 3 weeks ago when my in-laws were able to come for the weekend to advise and help with our little ones. This is what we accomplished over a long weekend:

raked up all pine straw mulch
pulled up all shrubs from front of house
reshaped landscape beds
created small new mailbox bed
added compost & manure to beds
tilled the beds
laid out newspaper as weed fabric
spread 10 cubic yards of hardwood mulch
replanted a crepe myrtle
replanted a flowering almond
replanted ~12 shrubs into new locations (screening the a/c units, etc.)
planted 4 loropetalum
planted 8 kaleidoscope abelia
planted 2 wintergreen boxwood
planted 2 sky pencil hollies
planted 2 emerald green arborvitae
planted 3 knockout rose bushes
planted 1 variegated gardenia
planted 1 new river birch tree
planted 2 butterfly bushes
planted 3 variegated wiegelas
planted 3 Nikko Blue hydrangeas
planted a bunch of daylilies around utility box on east corner of house
planted many hostas around the maple trees out front
planted two flats of coleum throughout the new shrubs
planted morning glory seeds around mailbox
planted morning glory seeds behind rose bushes to climb up flat wall
laid out flagstone as upright landscape edging on front borders
laid out flagstone as regular edging on six trees (still have more to go) and mailbox
laid out flagstones as pavers to create walkway along side of house
replanted a Japanese maple into a container

The following week, while DH was out of town, I'd go out at night after the girls were in bed and I:
planted irises in the front border
planted salvia in the front border
planted umpteen flats of annuals--petunias, vinca, etc. throughout the front borders and around the street maples
built 3 4'x4' raised beds for the side of the house
filled in the beds with grower's soil (major wheelbarrow work)
replanted veggies & herbs into those beds
sculpted a new 'bed' to connect the 3 crepe myrtles on the side of the house
laid down newspaper & cardboard, covered with grower's soil & mulch, and am leaving the bed to cook awhile
planted vinca all around the foundation shrubs along the side of the house
planted 3 adagio maidengrass around the crepe myrtles
started laying out the fieldstone around the new tree beds
unbound the fiveleaf akebia I planted along a brick retaining wall out back
planted a ton of petunias along the top of the retaining wall
remulched some of those beds in the back


Just wondering when I'll be able to walk upright again!!

I too as a former WM want to say thank you to your husband for his service and to you for all that you had to go through with being the wife of a service man. My son just got back from Iraq (was injured over there, he is doing well now) his second tour and he was overwhelmed by the people saying thank you to him as well. He would say I was just doing my job, why are all the folks thanking me??? I told him be glad that the public has changed as those members who were in Vietnam didn't come home to the same, such a sad thing to remember that our country was like that to our military.

Anyway, glad you joined and look forward to pictures as we all love pictures here...LOL

Jan I am so glad that your son is doing better!!! TG!!! Another answered prayer!!! Tell him his job insures all of us of our everyday freedom and without men such as your son and Amy such as your husband we could be like China where the internet is not even allowed and then none of us would have never met!!!! I try to thank each service man or woman that I meet. I truly appreciate their sacrifice for our country!!!

Oh Jan, I'm sorry to hear that your son was injured. Thank God he's doing well! When we were stationed in Germany, we saw so many young men badly wounded from Iraq and Afghanistan, and it tore my heart out. I used to bake muffins and such and bring them over to the wating room where the wounded warriors stayed while they waited to be medevac'ed back to the States. They loved that.

The best was when John was traveling on a trip a couple of years ago and, while waiting to meet some folks for dinner, called on his cell phone to chat with me. In the midst of the conversation, he started talking with someone in front of him and I was really puzzled. Long story short, some bikers came into the hotel, saw him in uniform, and tried to give him money to go out and buy himself a good dinner. John thanked them sincerely but asked that they find a young enlisted troop to do that for instead ("look for a younger man or woman with stripes on the shoulder"), as they needed it and deserved it more than he. I fell in love with him all over again, and could have kissed those guys who were so kind to my husband.

Jeri, you're so right--I'm glad our society has learned since its horrible treatment of people like my father, returning from Vietnam. Dad still does not talk about that time to this day, and for a 40-year law enforcement veteran who has been shot in the line of duty, that's chilling.

Hi Amy glad you have joined us. Let us know if we can help you get around easier in Daves. It is a little overwhelming at first.

My husband will not talk about Vietnam either. My thanks goes out to you too. Wives of military men give up a big chunk of their lives while their husbands serve. I absolutely hated the military life. I know it has gotten better than it was 43 years ago. Wives had major restrictions, such as your behavior, because you were a reflection of your husband. He was a reflection of his superior officer. It was 1968 and we were trying to spread our wings a bit. I don't mean drugs. I was the daughter of a Capt on the police force. You have to remember this was during a time girls still had to wear a dress to school. Ohh how far we have come baby. LOL Not all of it good though. OK off my soapbox.

Welcome again Cindy

great wedding shot.

My BIL was over in V. and he won't talk about it either, he lost many close friends.

Son wasn't hurt that bad, but it was enough for them to send him state side (which his wife was glad to have him home seeing as she had a new baby). He still has some back issues for his injury as he say it is nothing compaired to others who are in far worse condition. I just wish our country would reach out more to the family members to help them (either a safe place to stay while their loved one is recovering in the hospital), or other ways. We need hospitals that have the best doctors who can help ensure that those with TBI can have the best chance for recovery...

sorry didn't mean to go on I just feel so bad that we aren't doing more for those who have the worst injuries.

ok off my soapbox as well...

Jan, I couldn't possibly agree with you more. After retiring as a police chief, my dad went over to Baghdad to begin training the Iraqi police force (like he'd ever really retire). A friend of his was injured by an RPG that came in through the embassy, killed two people, and caused a TBI in this guy. He's still having major issues because of it, though at least I was able to care for him when he flew through Germany on his way back to the States. The nurse didn't want to let him go to my house and threw a fit to the flight surgeon, who rushed out to find me and was overjoyed that I'd bring him home, feed him well, and provide a listening ear for his multiple-day layover. "Best medicine we could possibly give him." But it disturbs me that 5 years later he is still struggling despite the best care the military is presently able to offer... it's just not enough. Not by a long shot.

Hi cperdue,

Thank you... i have had this Dr for about 4-5 years...it does really well in the summer here in Virginia. My friend on one of the Plumeria forums says that this one reminds her of the "Mandrakes " in Harry Potter.. LOL

I just lift it up and expose the Caudex every spring when i repot. I also remove some of the old soil line too!

Yours will look like mine im sure. It will grow for you before you know it!!! What color is yours?

I have several seedlings that im growing right now under lights. They are doing well, but i worry about some of them because they are so small.

Do yours stay active in the winter? or do they go dormant?

Take care,


Laura

Mine is pink. I've had it for at least 3 or 4 years. I've never repotted it. Maybe I need to do that. I bring it inside during the winter but it tends to lose some leaves and just kind of maintain during the winter.

I think you will see a big difference when you repot your DR. I like to keep the size of the pot close to the size of the DR , not to large of a pot. Fast draining mix and good fertilizer. Try that this spring, and i bet you will see a big improvement in the size of your Caudex.

My DR has blooms on it right now, its under a T-5 setup nd they are slowly dropping leaves. But not like a few years ago before i had the lights. They all did drop all of their leaves and looked so bare.

My tree is a watermelon color, and i do have a few large trees. I have about 10 seedlings growing, all named varities and one D. Blue. I cant wait for that one to bloom. Last summer, i had severall pods. I will be more than happy to send you some seeds if i have more develope this season.

Take care,

Laura

Mine has dropped some leaves but so far actually looks pretty good. However, as winter goes on it will probably drop more leaves. I have it in my sunroom in front of a window so it does get lots of light. But I can see what you mean about exposing part of the Caudex when you repot. Mine is thickening but if I expose more of it, it will be even thicker. I will definitely repot this spring. I would love to have some seed if you have any available later.

Sounds like it will be fun to see what it starts to look like once you raise it from the pot. I bet it has lots of interesting things under the soil. I cant wait to see before pics and after. So, please take some and post, or send them to my D mail. I have some seeds left from the last pod. If you would like them now send me your addy and i will be more than happy to give you some. Its wonderful to send them. Especially to AR. : )

Merry Christmas, and thank you for being so kind and making me feel welcome.

Here is a pic of the pod when it opened, i think its beautiful...

Thanks MaryandLance,

I have always used a lot of natives in my landscapes. But lived near good sources. Especially in the midwest.
I worked at a botanical garden that tried to utilize as many as possible.
So I feel pretty srrongly about using them =)
I am going to see if I can get the book at the library or buy it somewhere.

Yes Jeri and I have been to Forrest Hill many times together. It is just south of Alexandria. You need to google it. The entire town is wholesale nurseries. Since you have never been you will be amazed. Jeri and I will probably go on the Thurs before the Spring Festival. That is one time we try to get together. I had back surgery this last year so I missed that trip and your RU. I can't wait for the nursery runs this year. It is not all about the plants but having fun together.

The reason we go on Thurs is to avoid the massive crowds. The plants are all out on Thurs is preparation for the weekend. It can be really busy on that day too. When you see the spread of the nurseries you will see why you want to miss the crowd if you are seriously buying plants. Doug Young's is so massive we have spent the entire day there and never got to any other nurseries.
