An easy way to reduce the possibility of a deer damaging your garden is by planting deer resistant plants and vines. Many vines, such as the ever-lovely jasmine varieties, are not a favorite snack of the deer. Their climbing growth habit and bright blooms light up the garden and diminish the likelihood of deer wrecking your landscape. By choosing vines deer prefer not to eat, you greatly reduce the chance of inviting them into the garden. Crossvine An evergreen…

Climbers are a versatile group of plants - use climbing plants to cover fences, walls, trellis, arches or obelisks! You can also train certain shrubs as ‘wall shrubs’ for the same effect. Climbers are great for screening unsightly areas of the garden, brightening up bare walls and adding height to your borders. We’ve put together a list of climbing plants for shade and sun so whatever surface you’re trying to cover you will find something suitable here! Supporting…

Hey guys! Sorry I’ve been kinda absent lately here on the blog. My kids are out for the summer, and we’ve been having so much fun everyday. Lots of swimming, park time, soccer, and playing at our community center. Just not as much free time to make things and prep blog posts. In general this blog will be quieter in the summers and busier during the school year. Today I wanted to share with you a few photos of our porch. We built these wooden trellises years…

Attract Butterflies to your Trellises and Arbors Climbing plants are a great way to enhance your butterfly garden. They create more space, add ambience, and can be attention-grabbers for all sorts of butterflies. Vertical gardening requires more prep work, but the results can be spectacular. Since trellises and arbors add space, think of these garden structures as bonus opportunities for attracting other pollinators…butterfly vines can also add more beauty…

Planted in spring 2006. I got a nice 5 gal. specimen from Gledhill and put it right by the garage door to eventually climb up over the pergola. It’s slow, but eventually it will get big enough to start climbing beyond the tutelier and onto the pergola. Nice full plant, a few flowers, but in summer ‘07 the leaves got yellow. I’ve asked Bartlett to analyze the soil and fertilize as needed. It’s planted in a tough, hot location, right at the driveway edge and…

Check on trellis, pergolas, arches and all other structures supporting climbers, and carry out any repairs that are needed. If necessary, untie the plants and remove them from their supports – a task which is much easier to do while the plants are dormant. Ties and tying Before plants start growing actively, check the ties that secure them to their supports. Replace any ties which have rotted and add extra ties if these are required – a large climber in full…

Jelly isn’t much in style these days, I’ve noticed. Many people consider it too sweet, otherwise bland, and nearly devoid of nutritional value. I feel that way about many kinds of jelly myself. Who would choose strawberry jelly over strawberry jam, raspberry jelly over raspberry jam? Why throw out all of the fruit’s fiber and sacrifice the appealing texture that fiber provides? Some fruits, though, are too fibrous or seedy for a mashed jam. When they also have…

Here s another leftover from the New York trip. Marie wanted to show me some fantastic vines she had found. They were curling all over the woods, and each other. When the vines got large, the bark broke into clear diamond shapes. I had no idea what it was. I kept trying to find some leaves that actually went with the vines. I finally found some way up high. The camera helped me pull them closer. They weren t any help. With a bit more hunting we found some leaves…
