[ Tomato (Solanum lycopersicum 'Black from Tula') | Posted on August 13, 2019 ]

This plant grew well and produced a good crop of medium size fruit. I found the flavor to be very nice, Tastes like a tomato should, not too sweet and not too tart. Great on a sandwich or in a salad. I will plant it again.

[ Fan Flower (Scaevola aemula) | Posted on June 19, 2019 ]

Premier Compact Blue

[ Miniature Tall Bearded Iris (Iris 'Lilac Wings') | Posted on May 19, 2019 ]

A stalk of Lilac wings won first runner-up to best in show at the Utah Iris Society show yesterday. The stalk had 3 well spaced open blossoms. It was much admire by iris growers and guests at the show and beat out a number of nice T.B.s.

[ Sego Lily (Calochortus nuttallii) | Posted on January 12, 2019 ]

I've lived in Utah all my life and have only seen the Sego Lily a few times. They only grow in areas that meet their specific needs. I have been a member of a number of garden clubs for years and only know of one couple who were very experienced gardeners and grew them successfully in their garden. One year when food was scarce the Mormon Pioneers used the bulbs as a food source. They must have been more plentiful then.

[ Tomato (Solanum lycopersicum 'Japanese Trifele Black') | Posted on August 27, 2018 ]

My Son grew Black Trifele this year and brought me one yesterday. A nice surprise with wonderful complex flavor. I plan on growing it next year.

[ Tomato (Solanum lycopersicum 'SunSugar F1') | Posted on August 17, 2018 ]

A comment in praise of SunSugar is probably redundant, but it is such a great tomato I will comment. My whole family loves it, as does everyone I share some with. Very productive.......enough fruit to graze on in the garden and pick for future eating. As long as I raise tomatoes, there will be room in the garden for SunSugar.

[ Tomato (Solanum lycopersicum 'Dr. Wyche's Yellow') | Posted on August 17, 2018 ]

I found a plant of Dr. Wyche's at a local favorite nursery this spring and as I love to experiment I couldn't resist trying a plant as it was completely new to me. It was a good choice. The medium sized plants produced a moderate number of well formed fruit. Golden Yellow in color and makes nice slices. Fruity flavor, sweet but with a little sharpness. Makes a great sandwich. A definite keeper if I can find it again. I can recommend it.

[ Tomato (Solanum lycopersicum 'Black Krim') | Posted on August 9, 2018 ]

I grow tomatoes for sandwiches and salads, and to give away. This is my second year with Black Krim, I still like it, and it will be back another year. Nice large tomatoes, fairly productive numbers-wise. Often oddly shaped. I sometimes have a hard time knowing when to pick it when it is at its prime. I'm also growing Black From Tula and find them quite similar.

[ Tomato (Solanum lycopersicum 'Jet Star') | Posted on July 11, 2018 ]

This is my first year trying Jet Star. My plant looks like it is determinate......a compact plant with lots of tomatoes that will be ripening near the same time. The first one was ripe today so I gave it a try. Flavor was mild but pleasing. I will make a judgment as more ripen and then decide about next year. I'm thinking probably next year......

[ Hosta 'Victory' | Posted on May 14, 2018 ]

I got a nice start of Victory from Wolf Creek and it adapted to my garden and grew quickly. It is a large handsome Hosta which is easily recognizable. The leaves are huge and the color contrast with the border is great. Bloom stalk is tall. I would recommend it.

[ Tomato (Solanum lycopersicum 'Goliath') | Posted on April 23, 2018 ]

There is a great farm stand in my area where I buy tomatoes before my own are on. They grow Goliath and it is a very nice tomato with great flavor. I'm growing a plant this year.

[ Tomato (Solanum lycopersicum 'Kellogg's Breakfast') | Posted on August 11, 2017 ]

This is the first year that I have grown Kellogg's Breakfast tomato and I am well pleased. The plant is large, healthy, and vigorous and is covered with developing beef-steak type fruit, which are large. It has a mild pleasant flavor and the center is meaty and quite solid. Well worth growing.

[ Tomato (Solanum lycopersicum 'Fantastico') | Posted on July 19, 2017 ]

I am always swayed when I read that a plant has received an award. This was All American in 2014 so it tempted me. My plant was covered with fruit when I bought it. It has stayed small and ripened lots of fruit. Flavor is OK but it has a tough skin which puts me off. Would probably be good in a container in a small garden. I have limited space so may not plant again next year.

[ Rose (Rosa 'Day Breaker') | Posted on June 3, 2017 ]

Day Breaker is a vigorous healthy rose here and I haven't had any cultural problems with it. The bush covers itself with nicely formed blossoms that age well. It grows quite large. I bought my mother one of these because the hybridizer is Fryer from England and that is my mom's maiden name. I would highly recommend this rose. A favorite. It is being carried by a local nursery and has been for years. It must sell well, An award winner in England.

[ Intermediate Bearded Iris (Iris 'Spiced Peaches') | Posted on May 13, 2017 ]

Spiced Peaches remains one of my favorite Iris IB's. Each year when it blooms I appreciate it more. Nice straight stems, good bud count. nice ruffled form and substance, and the blooms last. Best of all is the rich peach color, which carries across the garden. I'll be moving some starts to another location this year. Great for the show bench if you catch it on the right day.....

[ Tall Bearded Iris (Iris 'Spinning Wheel') | Posted on January 23, 2017 ]

Spinning Wheel and Rose Tattoo were the first two irises that I ordered. Both were Nearpass iris and I think they were very forward looking for their time.

[ Amaryllis (Hippeastrum 'Red Pearl') | Posted on December 18, 2016 ]

Red Pearl is a spectacular Amaryllis. Mine is tall with large blossoms, which are a very rich, intense shade of dark red. The petals are wide, giving the bloom a very full look. One of my favorites so far this bloom season.

[ Hosta 'Hottsy Tottsy' | Posted on August 19, 2016 ]

Hottsy Tottsy is a nice, bright golden-yellow, medium-sized hosta. Color stays bright all summer. In my garden it is a moderate grower , Good substance. A nice contrast to other hostas growng nearby. Well worth a spot in a shady garden.

[ Tall Bearded Iris (Iris 'She') | Posted on January 5, 2016 ]

It's interesting to me that the pod parent of 'She' is 'Eye Candy' which is a Keppel BB from 2004.....

[ Tall Bearded Iris (Iris 'Ovation') | Posted on October 31, 2015 ]

At the time of its introduction in 1969, Ovation became the standard by which the pink irises were judged. It remained the standard for several years. Nowadays, pinks are getting better all the time.
