Here I hope that all gardeners will share their experiences, ask their questions, and contribute their expertise to make us all better gardeners!
This time of year is probably the time when we move need this forum, as we're all planning our gardens and trying to figure out what special things we might need to do to prepare our seeds for their big upcoming production!
a couple of ?s
I have lots of old packets of seed. kept dry but last yr planted some things which did not come up. Even some things which are easy. (ex. Beets) Once read of a way to check germination on seeds. Something about a damp paper towel. Do I do this before planting outside, and plant very carefull if i see activity on seed.?
#2..I have a brugmansia inside. It seems to be always covered with bugs. Little flying things if I beat the pot(they seem to be crawling in the soil) and the leaves have little light greenish soft things all over. I use safer soap, I've use alcohol with wintergreen and swabbed the whole thing...but in two days they're back. Any sugestions.?
