Comment by Amy Friesel on January 14, 2010 at 10:36am:  I just stumbled on Amy's great idea (see below).  Man!  I am putting in lots of tulips and daffs and I was trying to think of the best way to remember what went where next fall when I need to fertilize and her suggestion is so easy peasy!!!  Geesh!  My grape hyacinths are doing what she said right now so, yeah, it's a great idea.  Too, too easy!!!  Thanks, Amy!

Kim you may have a issue with the Mop heads ( macrophylla) are actual zone 6a plants an thier flower buds are being killed by winter temperatures or they are being pruned after the July 1 cut off date.  Many macrophylla hydrangeas flower buds can be killed by temperatures just below 10F.  So you mat consider mulching them early winter by piling wood chip/soil  mix over the plants.

I have a few mop head hydrangeas, my question is I'm having trouble with them not blooming I cut them down in the fall because usually the new bloom came on new growth,any suggestions to prepare them to bloom next year

Does anyone have any advise on preventing weeds organiclly? I am currently useing plastic mulch and want to get a weed torch.

My garden got away from me last year, and now I have alot of weeds standing in it waiting to drop their seed. I thought I would mow it and them take the leaf blower and try to blow the seeds away. The more I think about doing this the more I don't think it will be effective. Can anyone offer a more effective approach?

Take a look at my garden pics. Do you see weeds? I have very few in any of our 5 raised bed gardens. The secret isn't that I have tons of time to spend weeding or that someone weeds for me. Weeding is why I hate gardening and love Raised Bed Gardening. The SECRET... It's the soiless mix the I use. This is Vego-Soil from Mark Webber landscaping. Is it expensive is the next question. What is it worth to me to get great results from our garden and very few weeds? I've found that things of value tend to cost more but the rewards are well worht the cost of $130/ yard (32 sq ft). I would love to hear you comments.
