Making Your Own Standard RosesMaking Your Own Standard Roses
By sunnyvalley, May 18, 2016

This last winter wasn’t as cold as most, at least not for us, but you may still have some roses that have not survived. Sometimes you only lose the grafted rose and come spring all you see are suckers from the rootstock. Depressing, but look on the bright side - those suckers are ideal for making your own standard roses!

The Excellent SorghumThe Excellent Sorghum
By dave, April 25, 2016

Sorghum is in the grass family and is closely related to corn. In fact, when it's young it is nearly impossible to differentiate it from corn. If anyone ever tells you they have volunteer corn in their garden, you can sound smart by guessing that it's sorghum.

Cast Concrete LeavesCast Concrete Leaves
By HollyAnnS, April 23, 2016

Are you in need of a nice birdbath or fountain? Maybe you need a present for a friend or family member? Do you have some rather large leaves and don't know what to do with them? Maybe some nice big Hosta, Canna, Castor Bean, or tropical plant leaves? Well I have an idea: Let's make some cast concrete leaves.

By SherryBikesDC on May 25, 2016 2:38 PM, concerning plant: Corydalis (Corydalis incisa)

DON'T PLANT THIS IN YOUR GARDEN, not even in containers. It is invasive and it's seeds are spread by wind and animal contact. It is considered a potential threat to native plants. Here are more details: http://blogs.nybg.org/science-talk/tag/corydalis-incisa/

We found it growing as a volunteer in our garden in DC a couple of years ago. It spread quickly and threatened to choke out other plants we were cultivating. We've managed to keep it under control since, but still find it growing every spring.

By Joy on May 24, 2016 5:54 PM, concerning plant: Foxglove (Digitalis parviflora)

A true perennial Foxglove. Extremely long lived. Beautiful even when not in bloom and the blooms last a long time too. Will self sow, but not as aggressively as the common foxglove.
