I am looking at starting a Greenhouse and wondering if it is really necessary!
Lee, a greenhouse? A greenhouse can be fun, but I teach my Backyard Growers http://freeplants.com/wanted.htm how to grow thousands or tens of thousands of plants without a greenhouse. So no, a greenhouse is far from necessary, but many people like them. Keep in mind, I’m in zone 5 and I do not use a greenhouse at all. All of my little plants spend the winter outdoors doing what they do.
the info on the soil is very good . only one problem and that is when I buy soil many times it’s by the bag and that opportunity of squezing is shot down.
I thank you for asking for plants in my back yard. I would but the hail got most of them i have no blackberries or tomatoes or roses. i am coming start over we live in Edmond OK
I now know more about topsoil and what to look for, THANKS
can I take vines from califorina and bring them to mid florida to grow grapes?
Steve, as long as the zones from Calif and Florida are similar the plants should do fine. California has a number of varied climates and to my knowledge Napa Valley is cooler than other parts of the state.
Thanks for the tip on how to buy the best topsoil. We are getting ready to buy some and now I feel I’m
educated on how to compare the different kinds and make the right choice!
im going to plant a hill i have if i put round up or another herbicide down before i plant will new plants be affected does any one know proper way to do this?
If you spray with Roundup wait 3 to 4 days after you spray before you do anything else to the soil. In other words, do not disturb it at all for 3 days. After three days you can dig, chop til etc and plant. The roundup will not harm the plants that you are putting in. Others who are very much against the use of roundup for anything will argue this point, but I’ve been doing it for 40 years.
