In this book, professional, international garden designer, Rachel Mathews, from Successful Garden Design, will share over twenty year's experience as a designer and landscaping contracts manager. She will give you the low down on the main things you need to know BEFORE you landscape your garden.

Also, cactus plants have long been the subject of a superstition that any house, which has cactus growing in it is going to be filled up with strife and trouble and arguments. That is because of the spines of the cactus which are known as spikes promote ill feeling. There is something so odd about a cactus plant that it is often difficult until you grow them yourself to believe that these really belong to the plant kingdom. Historically, how many pioneer explorers of the desert areas in America saw them in the twilight and thought stories of monsters with their arms outstretched, and no heads, who turned into plants in the desert in the morning. No wonder, these giants which can grow up to 63 feet have always been the subject for legends. Even today, most of us are told tales about the cactus, which many of us half believe. Some of us have heard that cacti are poisonous. Other people are going to tell us that cacti flower only once in 100 years, and only when the area is subjected to rain. The first tale is totally and true. The second tale is also untrue because certain species of cacti will flower, almost every year, if given proper cultivation and care. Cactuses, also known as cacti belong to the family Opuntiaceae. Many of these plant varieties have lost true leaves, but they still have fluted and ribbed stems. The stems store

Perennial Plants: 20 Useful Vegetables and Fruits For Your Garden

We all wish that we could find a way to make gardening just a little bit easier. Gardening can take up so much time during the spring when we design and decide what plants we want to put in our gardens. It can take hours and hours of work, planning, going to the nursery, picking out plants, prepping the garden soil and then planting the actual plants in your garden.

Perennials can solve all of that work. Instead of planting your garden over and over again every year, you only have to do that planting one time and then you only have to do a little work at the beginning of the season to bring them back. You also save money on the cost of plants. Ultimately, you do yourself so many favors by planting perennials. They are easy to maintain and cost effective. Usually people feel like there aren't very many options for gardeners when it comes to perennials, when in reality there are far more than you would ever imagine.

A to Z Growing Roses for Beginners

You can grow perfect Roses at home

Let's Get Started

The art of growing roses is an ancient one. Rose plants flourish in many different areas around the world. Perhaps one of the oldest known evidence of the rose was an imprint found in a slate deposit in Florissant, Colorado. The imprint is about 40,000 years old. There are at least 35 species of rose that are native to the United States.

Many roses in the U.S., however, had their ancestors arrive with European immigrants. Roses were formally cultivated in Greece as far back as 600 B.C., or perhaps even earlier. Wreaths made from roses have been found in Egyptian tombs. In the middle ages, they were highly prized as part of an herbalist's medical resources, as well as providing both rose petals and rose hips to be made into sweets. These hearty early roses grew out of doors, bloomed in season, and required little coddling.

Josephine Bonaparte, wife of Napoleon, kept rose gardens. She had 250 different roses, imported from a variety of places. The tea rose, which for a long time was grown only in greenhouses and shelter gardens, was brought to Europe from China.

The first settlers brought roses from Europe; but the native people already planted roses around their villages to make them beautiful. Rose bush starts, carefully wrapped in burlap traveled with farmers seeking fertile ground as they traveled west. Some of them have gone wild, even becoming pests, while native roses - sometimes indistinguishable to the untrained eye, might be caught up in the drive to push back against the thorny plants.

Perhaps your vision of a rose is the perfect red bud, just beginning to unfold, that can be presented to a sweetheart. The multipetaled blossom that is so familiar to us is the result of centuries of careful breeding. Horticulturalists have been cross-breeding the "best" stock, grafting, and generally changing the rose for centuries.

Modern rose bushes could be divided into three categories: native or wild roses, old garden roses and modern hybrids. The native plants, such as the Missouri wild rose, usually sport simple blossoms, with only a single layer of petals. By way of compensation, these hardy plants can be found in fence rows and in the edges of fields or spreading across neglected fields. Birds eat the nutritious hips and spread the seed far and wide.

These beautiful pink roses are nearly indistinguishable from white multiflora roses until the plants bloom. As a result, many of these lovely native plants have probably been eradicated along with the invasive imported plant. There is some reason to restrain or control the growth of roses. Left unchecked, roses that have "gone native" will form nearly impenetrable thickets. Indeed, some were bred to be used as hedges. Some of the older species form dense tangles with thick canes that defy even the toughest clippers and trimmers. Imagine the traditional Sleeping Beauty rose thicket as an example.

How To Grow Marijuana: Indoor Cultivation and Usage Guide

Maybe you or a loved one is in need of medicine... maybe you enjoy sharing good grass with friends on occasion... maybe you believe in freedom and don't want draconian laws telling you what plants you can or cannot grow... for whatever reason, you are interested in marijuana growing. So you start looking for information, and find yourself inundated with books, videos, blogs, forums and more telling you absolutely everything about growing. The problem is the huge volume of information, much of which is conflicting, biased, or misleading.

Wouldn't it be nice if you had a very knowledgeable friend tell you exactly what you need to know? Well you're in luck! I have a lot of cannabis experience, and I'm going to help you. Why? One reason is I appreciate the help others have given me, and I believe in passing it on. But my motivation is also much broader... As a young person, I was positively influenced by hippy culture - I was born in the 1960's, and the hippie movement just resonated with me. I am very opposed to racism, sexism, corporate greed, oversized government, environmental desecration and war. Conversely, I strongly support and promote peace, love and weed. These three things have the potential to dramatically improve our world.

My hope is that teaching others to grow and use weed will help them better utilize all three as catalysts for change... to make the world a better place!
