Resolution time

1) I resolve to water my flats this winter so that I actually have more than a couple seedlings to show for my yearly $50 shopping spree from seed catalogs.

2) I resolve to water my houseplants at least once a week.

3) I resolve to water my annuals and new perenials daily during summer's hotest months.

4) I resolve to not beat myself up when I fail to uphold these resolutions and kill a zillion plants again this year.

Hello Nelumbo! I'm a southern gal who gardens in the red clay and have found peace with it...but it took some doing. Give me a shout sometime at my blog "The Giraffe Head Tree."

Haha. I know what you mean. My resolution is to get my garden space tilled before all these collard and lettuce seeds get scraggly and root-bound. BTW I am in Georgia, too. Happy gardening

Anyone who wants to grow healthy plants should know that location is one of the most important factors that governs successful growth of plants. Most people buy a plant, go out into the garden, dig a hole somewhere, and place the plant in the soil: and when the plant fails to grow, they blame the nursery or soil. Site selection is vital if you want your plants to grow and thrive. Choosing the best site can save a lot of frustration and headaches. native plants tree nursery
