Pruning Clematis

There may be no prettier climbing plant than the clematis.  These hardy vines clamor over trellises, fences, and even trees and shrubs.  They produce flowers in three general forms: small white flowers (now a purple variety as well) in panicles or loose irregular spreading clusters (generally autumn blooming), bell or urn-shaped flowers, and flat open flowers. They have four to eight petals and come in an array of colors.  Most gardeners plant clematis knowing that they prefer full sun and a thick layer of mulch to keep their roots cool in the summer, however, very few gardeners know how to prune these beautiful vines.

Growing Crocus

Crocus is a genus comprising about 90 species of perennial, early spring blooming corms. The flowers bloom in early spring, typically closing at night or on cloudy days and opening up with the morning sun, with many popular hybrids available. The plant foliage, basal, grass-like leaves with a central white stripe, turns yellow as plants go dormant several weeks after bloom. The plant is often used in rock gardens, beds, ground covers, lawns, and woodland gardens. It tolerates drought, but you should keep it moist during the growing season.

The Perfect Houseplant

Which is the best houseplant?  Obviously, that is up to debate because most people have their favorites.  There are people that love African violets, those that love cactus, and those that just love anything tropical looking, but I sat down one day to ponder just which is the one best houseplant.  To decide, I had to take into consideration which has the most insect problems, which is picky, does it need special care, how much light does it need, is it forgiving (sometimes I forget to water houseplants), etc.  So, after looking over my history with houseplants (of which I only have a few left) I have concluded that without a doubt the best houseplant is sansevieria.
