Welcome to Practical Matters for Physically Challenged Gardeners #11. We came from here:
http://davesgarden.com/community/forums/t/1183144/
On this thread we discuss the day-to-day challenges of gardening and enjoying the outdoors when you have some sort of physically limiting condition. Routine contributors to this thread deal with a wide range of challenges from chronic fatigue and the energy deficits caused by Depression to chronic pain and severe mobility limitations. Personal gardening circumstances range from gardening from a wheelchair to gardening without vision to gardening when you’ve had an overabundance of birthdays. :-) We are a diverse group. Feel free to join in.
Debra, I've found that rooting stimulant will sometimes get a plant through heat stress. Not to be confused with rooting hormone. I mean the liquid that you dilute in water. I use Ferti-lome Root Stimulater and Starter Solution. It's usually about $8 a 32 oz. bottle, but you only use a tablespoon or so to a gallon of water. It might be worth a try to save the pricy 'Wedding Dress' hydrangea. .
I transplanted some mock orange and gardenias late. The heat caught them before they had a chance to get well established. The stimulant seems to have revived them. Fingers crossed.
Jim is Shrek-ing out. :-) Watching back-to-back Shrek movies. Nadi is...cleaning house...without being asked to?...I'd better go find out who this imposter is and find the real Nadine. k*
