Umm.. my cannas havent bloomed yet.. I am sorry. They didnt bloom last year until about July?.. however, my day/easter lilys are starting to blossom and most of them came from the church that hunnys sister and husband did demolition work for so I cant help but be proud of those babies :).. umm.. hmm.. My candy corn plants havent started and Im sorry I totally worded that wrong.. last year it was late summer before they started to bloom.. they sorta look like cats tale but are colored like candy corn? I honestly do not know the correct name for them.. I dont mind sharing what I have ;).

I went to home depot after Easter one year and got me a pot that had 5 dead flowers, but live stalks, LESS THAN HALF PRICE, took those jokers home, planted then and they come back every year. I would much rather have a flower given to me with a bulb than cut flowers becuase you can plant them adn enjoy them year after year.

I like the name candy corn for them it suits them just perfect.

Bee & Doc GARDEN DIVA'S

I still have strawberry plants to go into a pot and some Coneflower seeds to get into the ground.

Did get all of my Morning Gloris planted.

Bleeding hearts are coming up quickly, a few mushrooms on my ****ake log and some pansies have opened up. One little tiny flower in my bed of dirt.

Garden Divas.. love it! :) I could play in the dirt with plants all day long. :) That is if I am active for it. lol! AMEN TO THE BULBS! I would too..

Honeybee, we rooted rhodis one year and forsythias.. and they done very well too. We gave a bunch away and kept some.. I just wished I knew all these names for them like you.. I can learn..

My big adventure is rooting from my magnolia tree.. I would love to have several magnolias.

And last year when KFC redone their landscaping, hunny stopped in for me to see if they were gonna reuse any of the shrubs.. well they gave us all we wanted of those boogers and then this year was the church.. I hate to see people throw out good plants just because they want a different look.. so I try to keep my eyes open and ears for those things.. :)

We had several cherry blossom trees in our yard in Virginia and they were so beautiful in the spring. We had forsythia and azalias and I really miss all of that. Looking forward to having them again. We have lots of dogwood trees on our property and are trying hard to make sure they all can be saved when the house is built.

I asked this question someplace else and never got an answer but does anyone know if camelias will grow in Blairsville? I remember growing up with several bushes in our yard in Brunswick and just love them. It is too hot in south Florida to grow them.

If you can spare them, would you try to root one or two for us!

Not for this year, but maybe for next....[[[[[HUGS]]]]

Azaleas are acid loving plant so you need to put some plant acid around them. I save my coffee grounds and soak them in water and then dump them on the azaleas and they do really ggod.

I believe Camillas would do good here, I think they are a member of the Hybiscus family just like the Rose of Sharon and those do good.

I also love weeping willows. will they grow there?

It is way too hot here to grow different types of flowers and trees.
That will be so pleasant to see spring blooms and flowering trees once again.

is there a garden club in B'ville?

Joy, I asked Hubby's Mom about those yesterday..they will grow here. She has a couple or so in the backyard..and said that her Mama has several of them.
Tell Gray that I also asked her about the broccoli and cauliflower..she said that she had never had luck with either of them, but that doesn't mean that they won't grow here. I told her if she couldn't grow something, then apparently it wouldn't grow here...the woman definitely has a green thumb!!

I can just see the wheels turning in Gray's head now.

He has his little paper out with grids on it and his ruler drawing lines "OK the house goes here and the garage goes there, where am I going to fit my garden in, hhmmm. And just how many flowers can we fit against the house and don't forget about fruit trees."

LOL, your not too far off on that one HoneyBee! We don't have the grids marked off but we're aready deciding on where things will go. I have been working on a binder for quite a while with paint chips, pictures of lighting fixtures, appliances, etc. We planted two small azalia bushes a couple of years ago but they haven't done much (we're not there to water them) and Gray is constantly looking up different things (on the internet for information) that we are thinking about for the house. We're planning on building the garage/apartment first so we can come up anytime we want to instead of having to rely on his sister for lodging. We just wish the time would go by quicker so we can move up sooner!

You might want to add to your binder some raised beds, georgia red clay is good but most all of my flower beds are raised with black dirt in them, the plants seem to do better.

The ones that are planted in the ground, not beds, do ok if you have a good area, the not so good ground, I just plant hardy plants that will grow no matter where you plant them.

A garage apartment is a better idea then staying with someone, you can come and go as you please and you don't have to worry if there is room.

Plus you can walk around in your bloomers if you have your own place.

Joy,
this a wonderful that you can do that. i wish we could do that as well. these cabin prices are killing me

i wish i knew what we had on our property as far as trees and things go. every thing was brown, cold and drizzly when we decided on it.
i do think there may a dogwood or two. guess we will find out in april.

i am with you. we wish we could get there and get settled also.

Don't remind me! The forecasters say that this is going to be a very active hurricane season. There are still people down here with blue tarps on their roofs (mostly from insurance problems) from Hurricane Wilma in 2005!
