What Plant AM I for February 25th of 2017

I am a species of pine that is native to Eurasia, ranging from Western Europe to Eastern Siberia, south to the Caucasus Mountains and Anatolia, and north to well inside the Arctic Circle in Scandinavia. My range occurs from sea level to 3,300 ft, while in the south of its range. I am a high altitude mountain tree. I am identified by the combination of my fairly short and blue-green leavesI am mainly found on poorer, sandy soils, rocky outcrops, peat bogs or close to the forest limit. On fertile sites, I am out-competed by other, usually spruce or broad-leaved tree species.My bark can be made into flour. In fact, my bark is so rich in vitamin C that I have historically been used to make bark bread to supplement the diets to people who live in northern climates.So what plant am I?See More

EARLY SPRING COLOR

Late February is usually is usually bleak and brown, but it is after all, the end of winter. There are some bright spots of color here and there as the very early "minor bulbs" are blooming, if we planted them last fall. Hellebores, The Lenten Rose, are pushing out their buds. Some early daffodils are already starting to bloom. But what about the gardens of new homeowners that may not have had the time or savvy to plant bulbs last fall?There are some great plants in bloom now and readily available at local independent garden centers. Consider some shrubs that will bring unexpected early flowers. For early fragrance try spring witchhazels. These shrubs that will mature around 4 ft. tall that are among the first shrubs to bloom with an amazing fragrance that travels on the breeze and will definitely bring a smile and a lighter mood. Arnolds Promise is a well recognized variety among many newer releases. Even one of these in the landscape planted near a walk or entrance will fill the air…See More

Still plenty of time for pre-emergent applications to your lawn - and more !

March is only days away and the extremely warm temperatures we have enjoyed her in February 2017 have made many of us a little uncertain about when to apply our crabgrass and Foxtail pre-emergent to our lawns . Have no fear ,, you still have lots of time !Our unusually warm temperatures will come to an end later today . With the exception of 2012, crabgrass and foxtail has not germinated in Southwest Ohio until mid April . ( In 2012 , we saw crabgrass and foxtail germinate in Mid March ) . The return to more normal late February and Early March temperatures will drop our soil temperatures and prolong the emergence of most annual grasses such as Crabgrass and Foxtail . So you still have lots of time to get your pre-emergence applied .Dandelion sighting ! We have seen the emergence of one or two dandelions this week ! Once again ... don't get too excited ! It is way too early to be applying broadleaf weed control to your lawn ! In "normal" years , we dont apply broadleaf weed control…See More

In the Garden Kitchen "Leeks" at AM1290,News95.7FM, Gardentalkblog,iHeart Radio Network

February 18, 2017 all day
The leek is a vegetable, a cultivar of Allium ampeloprasum, the broadleaf wild leek. The edible part of the plant is a bundle of leaf sheaths that is sometimes erroneously called a stem or stalk. Historically, many scientific names were used for leeks, but they are now all treated as cultivars of A. ampeloprasum.The name 'leek' developed from the Anglo-Saxon word leac. Two closely related vegetables, elephant garlic and kurrat, are also cultivars of A. ampeloprasum, although different in their uses as food. The onion and garlic are also related, being other species of the genus Allium.Rather than forming a tight bulb like the onion, the leek produces a long cylinder of bundled leaf sheaths that are blanched by pushing soil around them (trenching). They are often sold as small seedlings in flats that are started off early in greenhouses, to be planted out as weather permits. Once established in the garden, leeks are hardy; many varieties can be left in the ground during the winter to…See More

In the Garden "Making more Plants" at AM1290,News95.7FM, Gardentalkblog,iHeart Radio Network

February 18, 2017 from 6:30am to 6:45am
Stems that are still attached to their parent plant may form roots where they come in contact with a rooting medium. This method of vegetative propagation is successful, because water stress is minimized and carbohydrate and mineral nutrient levels are high. The development of roots on a stem while the stem is still attached to the parent plant is called layering. A layer is a rooted stem following detachment (removal) from the parent plant.Some plants propagate naturally by layering, but sometimes plant propagators assist the process. Layering is enhanced by wounding the stem where the roots are to form. The rooting medium should always provide aeration and a constant supply of moisture.Simple layering can be accomplished by bending a low growing, flexible stem to the ground. Cover part of it with soil, leaving the…See More

INSIDE PLANTS

The Miami Valley in Ohio is enjoying the start of several days with temperatures easily cresting 50 degrees and and little rain in the forecast. Gardeners are ready to stampede outdoors and begin the season! Admittedly there are many late winter chores in the garden that are much easier in this kind of weather. Remember to spend some time on the inside plants as well.Valentine's Day, just passed, is an unofficial kick off to the potted, forced bulb season. Many pots of blooming tulips, daffodils, and hyacinths replaced more traditional arrangements of cut flowers. The blooms last longer than cut flowers and often are more fragrant. Knowing how to care for them will not only prolong the display but will provide an opportunity to see them bloom again outside, next year. Give the plants a brightly lighted location although avoid full direct strong sunlight while the flowers are fresh. Select a spot that is away from the drafts of opening doors and heating vents. Check the soil daily and…See More
