potted ponds: mini water garden oasis...
Bucket Fountain The soothing sound of water is a lovely accessory in any garden. Even if you don’t have room for a majestic pond, you can create your own small-scale oasis in a container. The tiniest trickle will reduce ambient noise and significantly increase your enjoyment of an urban patio, balcony or rooftop garden. The plants Advertisement Corkscrew rush (Juncus effusus ‘Spiralis’): A marginal water plant, meaning it can be grown either at the edge of or in a pond but still in soil, this unusually shaped rush reaches 60 centimetres tall and does best in sun or part shade. Make sure you’re not buying J. balticus ‘Spiralis’, which is less upright and has a tendency to spread. Zone 4 Dwarf or miniature cattail (Typha minima): Another marginal plant, it reaches up to 45 centimetres tall and grows best in sun or part shade. Zone 3 Chameleon plant (Houttuynia cordata ‘Chameleon’): A marginal plant that produces white flowers in early summer, it must be planted in a perennial bed and mulched to successfully overwinter. It reaches 15 centimetres tall, does well in sun or part shade and tends to spread. Zone 5 Needle rush hair grass or spike rush (Eleocharis acicularis): A marginal as well as an oxygenating plant (essential for the survival of fish), this North American native grows to about 30 centimetres tall and does best in sun or part shade. Zone 3 Fairy moss (Azolla caroliniana and A. filiculoides): This tiny moss (one to three centimetres across) floats on the surface of the water. The green fronds turn red in fall; the plant spreads rapidly. Overwinter indoors; native to North America. Tub time (shown above) A large, galvanized-steel tub (30 centi-metres deep, 46 centimetres square) serves as the base for this water feature. The pump was installed on the bottom, then covered with a plastic pot. A trick I learned from Canadian Gardening’s previous editor, Beckie Fox, is to use a piece of gridded plastic (the type that’s installed over fluorescent lighting) as a foundation for the top layer of stones. I added a variety of larger sizes (not pebbles) and finished it off with a flat slab of slate, which forms the ledge over which the stream of water runs. Pump primer To make these potted ponds, I used a 95 GPH pump (GPH stands for gallons per hour). Although 95 GPH may sound like a lot, it’s one of the smallest sizes on the market and is only appropriate for containers. Here’s the formula for calculating the volume of your pond or container using imperial measurements: length x width x depth (all in feet) will give you the cubic feet of a rectangular container. Multiply this by 7.5 to obtain the number of U.S. gallons. The galvanized-steel tub used in Tub time measures one foot deep by 11⁄2 feet square: 1 x 1.5 x 1.5 x 7.5 = 16.88 U.S. gallons. To calculate the size of the pump needed, divide the total number of gallons by two, which means you would only need an 8 GPH pump for a container this size. But that’s just the beginning. The size of the container can also influence the strength of pump required. The longer the tubing from the pump to the water output, the more GPH is needed to keep the water moving. A waterfall entails its own set of calculations, as distance from water pump to water output can be significant. For the best advice and information on selecting a water pump, visit a retailer that specializes in water gardens. Installing water plants To install water plants, remove them from the plastic containers they're sold in, wrap the soil and roots in burlap, then place in small mesh baskets (specifically made for water plants and available at most garden centres). Cover the top with pea gravel (this will keep the soil down). Remember to check the pump's filter periodically, as this is where residual soil will collect. The smaller the pump, the smaller the filter and the more frequently it needs to be cleaned out.
Corsican Mint ~ Wonderful, mat forming groundcover that features tight green, aromatic foliage. Tiny lavender flowers in summer. Plant as a lawn substitution or between stones so that the gentle scent of mint is released when walked on. Excellent for front entryways and back patios. Will take moist areas as well as normal landscape scenarios and will reseed easily in the garden.

Some of them repel biting insects, other invite useful wasps that kill the parasites on the other plants. Most of those plants below will live in perfect coexistence near each other (except the mint, if planted in the same box or pot). They will also not grow too tall and wide, so you can fill small spaces around your windows and not risk stumbling upon them all the time. Rosemary Some use this herb for cooking, other use it as a herbal tea. As with all plants having needle-like leaves, the rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis L.) is evergreen and can be held indoors in the whole winter, still leaving pleasant aroma. Most of the needle-leaved plants are very good purifiers, especially for humid winter air. They breathe carbon dioxide and exhale oxygen. Rosemary is not exception. The most important function of this herb is its ability to improve cognitive function and shield the brain from free radicals. And the presence of this plant in the room is enough in the long run. Rosemary still exhales some of its essential oils in the room (you don't need to boil it in a tea infusion to benefit from it). Lavender (Lavandula spica L.) You need to check if you are not allergic first, but this herb makes very good house plant. 1. It is excellent insect repellent. 2. The aroma relaxes the lungs and helps for calmer night sleep. 3. The aroma (also) helps relax if you suffer from anxiety. If you don't want to buy oil lamp for aromatherapy or sleep with lit aroma candle beside your bed -have a pot of Lavender growing on your bedroom window. It loves sunlight so - don't deprive it or it will refuse to bloom. At late autumn, the sunlight will be insufficient, so gather the seeds when the plant withers and reseed them at early spring. The soil is best to be sandy and not too rich (exclude compost and fertilizers) and the plant is best kept in a pot with good drainage. Don't drown the roots or you risk losing the whole plant. Basil (Ocimum basilicum L.) a.k.a. Basil is one well known herb and spice. Naturally it is spread in Asia and North Africa but can easily be cultivated for all climates and domesticated. Grows about 1-2 feet long with small white blossoms and wide leaves. The fruit is small 4-seed nut that dries and drops by itself at autumn and can be reseeded in the next Spring. The rich aroma and the pleasant peppery taste are only one part of the coin. It can be also used as herbal tea and as all other plants will reduce the Carbon Dioxide in the room. Gather some leaves for the salad and leave enough smaller leaves for it to grow. Mint Mint (Mentha spicatta L.) The best herbal tea for winter. The best plant for indoor planting. There are many subspecies which are also called Mint. They include plants suitable with cooking with dry beans, plants suitable for baking meat, others suitable for extracting fragrant oils for perfumery and scent lamps and dozens more. All of them has few things in common: They make the air easier to breathe if you have lung disease. They have very pleasant aroma. They attract one small wasp when blooming. The wasp kills some parasites on other plants or injects eggs inside them. They make excellent herbal tea or tasty cooking spice. They love sun and water but are incredibly easy to grow. You can cut a branch and leave it in a glass of water for one week. It will grow very potent roots and you can plant it everywhere. From the main root system often grow additional spin offs which you can use or replant elsewhere. In my own terrace garden, the mint is often partly rooted and removed, because the root is quite invasive and strong (smothers and kills other plants around the mint). Jasmine (Jasminum officinale L.) Jasmine opens its flowers between 6 and 8 PM, when the temperature is lower. Having Jasmine aroma when dining is very pleasant. Having jasmine tea is also very good. (Just bruise some petals in a cup and pour boiling water. Cover for 10 minutes with a small dish). In China and India, it is mixed with green tea leaves and tumbled until the green tea absorbs all the fragrance form the Jasmine. In fact - Jasmine tea bags bought from store are actually green or Oolong tea with Jasmine scent. And even if Jasmine is not completely robbed from healing properties, Iit is better used as an evening house fragrance and air purifier. I strongly recommend you grow this plant. It is not very expensive. Geranium Geraniums, (Pelargoniums) are more than 200 kinds. For all of them is valid: Excellent aroma if you can tolerate it. Mosquitoes repellent. Don't attract most of the parasites which suck plants dry. Looks excellent when blooming. Purify air. A detached cutting can be grown by just re-planting it. Takes about a week to grow new roots. Don't need much care. Can live without water for 2 weeks in cold days. More sun = more blossoms. If you are still not convinced or not having too much botanical knowledge - this is the best houseplant for beginners. Even more: Rose geranium (Pelargonium roseum Willd.) can be used as a helpful herbal tea in Diabetes melitus (type 2). It lowers blood glucose levels very quick. Coffee plant Coffee plant (Coffea arabica L.) CAN be domesticated easier than an avocado seedling. There are above 120 subspecies Coffee plants, with sub-gene arabica being most famous and easy to grow at home. They are spread worldwide and you probably don't know how good this plant can be indoors. It blooms in white and smells so refreshing in the morning, you will probably skip your coffee beverage and just breathe. The normal coffee plant can grow to a small tree (3 meters), but indoors in a pot, it is quite compact - 1 meter (3 feet). Takes about 4 years until it starts blossoming and if you allow sufficient sunlight and help germination from small wasps and bees - you can grow your own coffee beans. Roast and grind them to coffee :) one plant provides about 50 grams dry coffee mass (~ 2 ounces). Sufficient for one week. Woodbine a.k.a. European honeysuckle or Common honeysuckle (Lonicera periclymenum L.) This plant is very useful for indoor stairs, especially if your rooms have sufficient sunlight. Regardless it is forest semi-parasitic plant growing over tree trunks, it can be domesticated and dwarfed. You can grow it in pot with a wooden log or dry branch planted in the soil, so the vine can climb on it. It has very sweet scent, especially at night. Can be grown from a seed, and takes about 2 years to start blossoming indoors

How to Grow an Avocado Tree... the easiest way in Arizona, is to put it into a pot of Potting soil in a terra cotta pot. with the point down and water it when it gets dry.. it sprouts right up. Once it's big enough to transplant, plant it somewhere that it will be sheltered from the intense sun/heat of the day. I have mine on the east side of the house. in a raised bed. it gets sun at noon, but then my own house shades it after the sun moves a bit.
