Central Oregon Gardening & Outdoor Ideas
Central Oregon Gardening can be a challenge; but, we can also place other outdoor items within our garden as well...come check it out!
Open a pumpkin. Leave the "guts" inside. Add some soil, and just a little water. Look at all of the pumpkin plants that you will have.
Victoria Blue Salvia available at Fred Meyers but it's zone 8-10. This would be an annual here in our high desert as it would die off with the winters we have here. Dang it, gonna have to take these back to Fred Meyers because I want perennials! A Good 2 Know, and it did not say on the plant. Had to come home to look it up.
06/02/2013 Purchased and planted some Snap Dragons. Will see how these do here.
Boston Ferns: I have researched that it's best to buy 12-14 inch tin buckets and drill holes at the bottom for drainage. For the soil, use a mixture of potting soil and horse manure which is an excellent fertilizer. It's impossible to OVERWATER the ferns, they love water! Water daily and in hot water, water in the am and then the pm. I'm gonna try this method because these are beautiful:)
